22 European countries are collaborating with each other with the intent to yield an application development milieu that would be compatible with all smartphones. Being spearheaded by the German Graunhofer compose for Open Communications Systems, it is something that could well appease personel app users and end prolonged dissatisfaction among consumers.
Cutting to the chase, separate programming languages are used in separate environments - for example the iPhone, Symbian and Android environments - meaning that an app that woks on one platform, may not work on another. And, if that was not frustrating enough, don't stop to forget that there are platforms other than those on movable phones: car installations and other home consumer electronics for example. How remarkable to have an all-encompassing set of apps that would serve the purpose that they were designed for yet not need specific or branded gadgets to run on.
There are abundance of consumers that would welcome this development. The end users, negating those with a geekish bent, wish ease of use and compatibility rather than true "brand" specificity. Putting it someone else way, if I like an app, then I don't care how it is advanced in case,granted it works for me on the gadget I own or use. Functionality is the keyword for consumers. After all, you don't care who made your car engine as long as the car runs to your liking.
But, don't get too comfy, the move is not without its detractors. There is a lot of wheeling and dealing to be done before the proposal, despite its 10 million Euro investment, gets everywhere near to completion. There, after all, always some that won't play ball.Multi-Platform Smartphone App development
