Stone Age Mobile Development - Year 2013

    Hello, Habr!

    Last year, NetCat and CMS Magazine conducted a joint study - “The practice of developing mobile sites”, this year we decided to continue this work and prepared the next study, with which we tried to track the dynamics of the “mobile” sector of the web development market.

    - CMS Magazine interviewed more than 500 studios;
    - LiveInternet data;
    - J'son & Partner Consulting.

    This report was presented at RIW on October 19, and today we are pleased to introduce it to the general public, so:

    For starters, things are obvious, but to complete the picture:

    According to a survey by J'son & Partner Consulting among smartphone owners.


    As you can see, the peculiarity of the present time is that we do not let go of the smartphone.


    And we use it "to the fullest", i.e. this is not just a means of communication, but the main way to obtain information and interact with the outside world.

    Are there many of us?


    Yes, there are a lot of us, and over the past year we have become 1.5 times more, in addition, we not only sit in social networks, but also actively look for goods and services, and then we acquire them, i.e. we carry our money online.


    Every year more and more developers begin to work with mobile technologies, the dynamics on the chart are not surprising, but nevertheless - over 5 years the number of developers has grown 10 times. This suggests that the demand for the development of mobile / responsive sites and related applications should be very substantial.


    But no ... At first glance, this is a very strange situation, but then we will see why it is


    taking place at the moment: The customer, a year later, already understood the need to work with a user of mobile devices, but has not yet found the money for it.

    So why not find:


    Ie we can say that either the number of developers, despite the impressive growth, is still not enough, or the mobile development technologies are not so simple as to affect the final cost for the client, and most likely both options exist.


    Very interesting data, social. the networks are sagging, but everything related to online commerce is growing, i.e. E-commerce market is becoming more and more professional, it forms today's trends.

    The conclusion can be drawn as follows: users have already gone through some revolution - they are already in the "mobile" future, the client also already has a need. he understands where his money is, but the development lags behind, it objectively does not keep pace with the needs of the market, it is necessary to increase capacities in the near future, there will be demand.

    Thank you all, we hope that it was interesting and useful.
