Mobile apps are absolutely exploding on the marketplace. It seems like so many business entrepreneurs are focusing on creating new apps that fit various needs such as games, music, organizational purposes and the list goes on. I recently read an article that discussed creating a Mobile Health office within the FDA. Specifically focusing on health alone, there are thousands of mobile apps that focus on counting calories, recording miles walked, and monitoring blood sugar levels.
I think it's high time we start profiling a few applications that have been approved for use by the FDA, discuss their functionality, and potentially profile the impending issues they may encounter.
As with all software and technology, security is, and will always remain, a hot-button topic. It is even a point of contention for computer consumers - Mac vs. PC debates often will focus on how Mac's don't "need" virus protection (which is somewhat of a misnomer, but certainly good marketing).
It has been predicted by many technology pundits that smartphones will be in everyone's hands within the next few years. Of course there will be different flavors of smartphones to adjust to different consumer ranges, but the way of the numpad flip-phones will be left to the late 90s and the 2000s.
