The Future of Mobile Apps
There is no doubt that 2011 marked a giant leap for the Smartphone users. More than one million mobile apps were counted and the number is growing every day.
With the decease of Steve Jobs, the question that arises is who will fill in the Hugh gap in the mobile app world. Steve Jobs appointed Tim Cook as his replacement, but no one really knows if he’s the right person for this strategic position.
Does he have what it takes to continue delivering successful products? Is he able to keep the mobile apps market high quality level in 2012? And what about the new iPhone5 and iPad3? Are they going to be significant changes in the new releases?
There are also questions about the person itself and his business orientation. Is he an enterprise man or product oriented?
The new CEO is trying real hard to keep the company’s high level production and prestige, but the lack of Steve Job’s style of management is too obvious, as well as his technological creativity that the new CEO seem to lack for.
Apple is going through tough times. It’s not easy to lose such a dominant figure like Steve Jobs, who was considered a genius in his area. When a major player such as he leaves, it looks like Apple is going to lose the competition against Microsoft.
So where does that leave us, the users? Are we going to see a decreasing in the number of apps in 2012? Is the price of the Smartphone going up?
Well, It’s too soon to jump into conclusions. There are still a few iPhone Apps that are about to be released that could make a difference in 2012, like Vidify and Goldman HD.
The Goldman HD is one of my favorite upcoming apps. It’s a game app based on the classic “Gold Miner” game. Your Goal is to blow up the mine and collect as much gold as possible. There are several ground types and you need to carefully choose the right bomb for each ground.
It’s a very simple game, and yet you can enjoy no less than 100 levels!
Another great gaming app from the car games genre is RPM: Gymkhana Racing. It’s a drifting game with an amazing graphic ability, a pure entertainment experience for the genre fans.
There are more cool apps to look for in 2012, let’s just hope that Apple can overcome the big bump on the way. The company is too important to be out of the game.
