Mobile app development for Ubuntu mobile may be skeptical
With a handful of apps and minimal advantages in the UI, Ubuntuâ€™s mobile platform can be skeptical for mobile app developers.
The power curves in the mobile app development is directly
affected by the dominance of leading mobile OS ecosystem
in the market. With more than 90% of the users using Android and iOS alone, android app development and iPhone app
community has not reaped substantial results as of now. In
midst of this Ubuntuâ€™s mobile OS remains a speculative new
entrant to the market. Would it be able to lure mobile app development ecosystem?
Speciality of Ubuntu mobile OS
Like android, Ubuntu mobile OS is also an open source mobile operating system that boasts of an intuitive UI. The
apps are sorted accordingly to the usage frequency of the user and there is a side bar as well for quick access. However, like windows phone, which could not change much
with its rotating tiles, many believe that small changes an
add-on in the UI will not make much difference to the status quo of the market. Even if the fluidity of ubuntu mobile OS is
comparable to that of high end android phones, people will
not switch to a new ecosystem when they are satisfied with the overall experience of android. Despite
Ubuntuâ€™s mobile OS relies on
the integration of all the
devices including PCs, TVs and tablets under the ubuntu
ecosystem. In short, you can use all your apps under the ubuntu
streamline everything to one single place.
Ubuntu is without apps and late in the game
While iOS and android app development has come of ages, a new mobile OS from Ubuntu might take time to germinate and match the standards of these existing ecosystems. Apple might be trialing against android devices, however no one
can deny that iOSâ€™s fluid experience is still something that android lacks even after 4 generations of development.
In addition to it, it must be also understood that apps are driving the mobile ecosystem of today. Creating dedicated and exclusive apps are creating new segments of users.
Ubuntu cannot rely on the integration of devices alone as other competitors are already investing heavily on their
cloud computing platforms. OpenXcell Technolabs is a trusted mobile app development company
certification and also a member of NASSCOM. Openxcell has
its headquarters located in the US with its app development centre located in India.
