Appery LLC has added Automatic App Update capability to its Appery.io mobile integration platform.That means developers can update their applications without resubmitting them to app stores. The result is faster time to market, lower costs, and cross-platform support.
“This is the best thing we’ve seen in an app development platform to date,” said Neel Sus, CEO of Susco.
Appery in July announced an integration with Ionic SDK, which allows developers to create HTML5/hybrid apps on a single code base with native UX across all platforms. The company says its news this week establishes HTML5 hybrid mobile apps as the leading approach for enterprises.
According to a July story on Business News Daily, Appery.io is among the top 18 best app creation platforms. The reporter notes that Appery.io is “the only drag-and-drop cloud-based platform with visual development tools and integrated back-end services.” Others on the top 18 list are App Factory, AppMachine, AppMakr, appsbar, Appsme, Appy Pie, Bizness Apps, BuildFire, Canvas, Como, EachScape, GameSalad, Mobile Roadie, Salesforce1 Platform, Taplytics, Zengine, and Zoho (News - Alert) Creator.
"We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity, making quick creation of apps even more challenging," says Adrian Leow, principal research analyst at Gartner (News - Alert), which reports that by the end of 2017 market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations’ capacity to delver them
A 2014 Gartner survey found that most organizations have developed and released fewer than 10 apps, and many of them had yet to release their first mobile app.
"This is an indication of the nascent state of mobility in most organizations, with many organizations questioning how to start app development in terms of tools, vendors, architectures or platforms, let alone being able to scale up to releasing 100 apps or more," says Leow.
