Application developers—mobile or otherwise—face a host of challenges. In the mobile arena, dominated by the ecosystems surrounding Apple’s iOS and Google Android, developers must not only push out new software on tight deadlines, but also ensure their app is beautiful and powerful enough to hold its own against dozens (or even hundreds) of competitors.
And it’s not just a matter of building new apps; once they’re released, apps must receive a constant stream of tweaks in order to stay relevant and patch up any bugs.
