The premier global market intelligence firm IDC has recently surveyed 5,526 Appcelerator Titanium developers on their perceptions of the current and future mobile development trends and priorities. The survey is claimed to be the largest mobile developer survey ever conducted to date and results in the following findings:
Mobile provides an unprecedented opportunity to transform the whole industry or certain niche and build towards competitive advantage. A good example is Uber, an on-demand private driver app that has already disrupted the taxicab industry in the United States and Canada. Other examples include Layar that has once disrupted the augmented reality (AR) and object recognition (OR) niche, and Bipper, a revolutionary mobile app that has transformed the personal security domain in Scandinavia and is gradually moving to the United States.
The fact that mobile developers believe Facebook is at risk of being leapfrogged by a mobile-first social media startup should be perceived by companies in mature markets as a cautionary note that to stay competitive in the mobile era, they will have to fundamentally re-envision their traditional business models through a mobile-first lens.
It’s noteworthy that the attractiveness of Blackberry devices for mobile developers has seen an unprecedented decline from almost 40% in Q1 2011 to 9% in Q3 2012. The question is whether Blackberry 10 will be able to improve the situation for RIM.
Most of specialists polled think Microsoft will only be able to regain its lost popularity and reduced market share if it manages to deliver a “strong showing right out of the gate”. Otherwise, developers just won’t tolerate any missteps.
