iOS Apps: The real deal that sells the Apple smartphone – Part 2

Apple redesigned the developers’ model altogether. Although it was one year later than the release of the original iPhone, it was worth every penny. Before Apple, mobile applications were a serious work and it meant business.

Windows opened the doors for developers to its Windows operating system, desktop version. However, that resulted in freeware, shareware and eventually shaped into a number of ‘malware’. Apple had the example lying in front of it. The App Store, as a result, was built with closed confines.

At first it looked limited and restricted but the way the Cupertino giant lured developers to the platform is an amazing illustration organizational behaviour. The company is known for serious business and all of a sudden devs are hording toward an operating system that is a new concept and is in its nascent years.

Apple made app development a fun. Though every application had to has still has to go through a scrutiny on compatibility, performance and malware, it still is open to anybody with a new concept, be it a new way to read the weather or a new game just for killing your time. Everyone with the handset or the knowledge of it is welcome to submit his/her application at the App Store.

It started with five or six apps in 2007 and in five years the number has crossed 600,000 mark, including both free and paid applications. This is an achievement on Apple’s part.

However, there is one more aspect to apps on a smartphone. Gone are the days when device designs could inspire users or the operating system’s interface. Apple has achieved the pinnacle of easy-to-use operating system and it is good for now.
