Well I have received a bunch of calls about Mobile applications or Mobile Apps lately and thought a blog post might help to answer some questions.
1- I think mobile applications are great, but mostly they are either sales tools or whittled down versions of websites.
This week has been busy for Websnare, Inc. Lots of current development projects. It seems every project is at a different stage of the development process. Basically, lots of "balls in the air" - and I am trying like crazy to not forget or overlook obvious items. I have clients with issues that need attention, and there is the need for constant prioritization, attention to detail and consistent quality. The greatest current challenges I am finding to be with communications - it takes time no matter how you do it. If I write my communications down and delegate it is efficient, but still take effort and time out of my day. Time really is the commodity that is non-renewable. I love my iphone (4s) and my Ipad - both of which are fantastic tools for communications. Regardless of all the technological advancements communications is still a hurdle. Comprehension and perception of what is communicated can be a risky variable. Websnare is aware of these possible "speedbumps" to projects and are working to develop a sure-fire way of comprehending our clients needs and wants, and then dissemination of that information to our development crew.
Fall is certainly here in Colorado this 2012. We have woken up to snow on the grass and the nights are certainly cooler. The fall colors are present and it will not be long until we see the skiers all jammed up on Interstate-70 It is a sad and cicular revolution that drives people to sit in endless traffic jams to then be hoisted up a mountain for the pleasure of simply sliding down it, to repeat and repeat and repeat. Going where tons have gone before, only because they want to show their friends how much better their eco-killing gear is compared to others, or perhaps they are trying to impress that certain someone with their athletic prose. Either way, this ski season in Colorado expect to see the iphone and the android phone on the ski hill. I am curious how much WiFi access there is on the ski hills this upcoming year?
