A mobile app is a software program designed to run on a mobile device, like a Windows Phone. To create apps for Windows Phone, you use one of two development platforms: Microsoft Silverlight for Windows Phone or the XNA framework. The mobile device scene has exploded in the last few years, with thousands of applications (apps) available to run on a variety of mobile devices like smartphones. A mobile app is simply a small software program designed to run on a mobile device, and many mobile apps are actually Web-based programs that help you connect to the Internet and interact with a Web site. Apps generally come with crisp, clean user interfaces (UIs) that are fun, easy to use, and functional. Anyone who has purchased a smartphone knows there are many choices, from Windows Phones to iPhones to Android devices and more.
