Many mobile application development firms will be excited to hear the news that Facebook will be offering a similar type of mobile application store where users can download and use mobile applications just like they would at other popular mobile application marketplaces such as Apple's iTunes mobile app marketplace or Google's Android mobile app marketplace. Facebook recently announced that they will be rolling out an mobile app store where any mobile application developers can grow their mobile applications and users can learn about them. One mobile application expert recently said that the new Facebook mobile app store will be a great new avenue for experienced and new mobile application developers to learn how to develop and grow mobile applications and also an open marketplace for the mobile application developers or mobile application development firms to post them for other users to download.
Facebook have over 900 million users so the benefits and avenue which the new Facebook mobile application store will to mobile application developers and mobile application development firms will be at new levels. Even though mobile application marketplaces such as Apple's iTunes mobile application marketplace or Google's Android mobile application marketplace have a large number of users, they are not even close to the 900 million users which are on Facebook. For mobile application developers and mobile application development firms to have the opportunity to post a mobile app on a marketplace where 900 million users can potentially view and download, it simply amazing.
One mobile application developer which we recently interviewed stated the following about the new Facebook mobile application marketplace: "When I heard about the news that Facebook will be introducing a new mobile application marketplace, it was so excited and intrigued about what the future will hold for the mobile app industry and mobile application development. We have already been growing and picking up pace at an all time high but when we combine mobile applications with a powerhouse social media giant like Facebook, the effects it will have for both social media and mobile applications will be endless. Facebook is giving mobile app developers and mobile app development firms an arena where they can post mobile applications and learn how to grow upon the mobile applications to make them better, tie that in with social media and the ability for users to give feedback and this is a win-win situation for the entire mobile application development industry, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms"
Although it is impossible to predict how successful the mobile application marketplace will be, if the past few years is any indication, then it is safe to assume that it will be a large hit for mobile application user a, mobile application developers and mobile application development firms. The ability for mobile applications to reach 900 million users from around the world is something which has never been done before and mobile application developers, mobile application development firms and the entire mobile application industry should be very thankful that Facebook has decided to roll out a mobile application marketplace for all types of mobile application developers and mobile application development firms.
