I hope you had a successful and happy February!  In this month’s newsletter we highlight some common mistakes that we have watched companies make over the years when thinking about and developing a mobile application.

One of the most common mistakes that I constantly see out in the market to this day are companies not planning enough time and resources to complete a project.  An average mobile development project on the simple side can take 2 to 3 months, more complex projects can run up to as much as 4 to 6 months depending on the level of effort required and how many platforms are being launched.

And then there is the Apple approval process which can sometimes take up to as much as much as two weeks.  One of the best ways to ensure that you have allocated enough time and money to a proposed project is to start the planning process as early as possible and never assume something you programmed on the web will be as simple when you replicate it on a mobile device.

As always my door is open to discuss this in more detail.  I look forward to an early Spring 2012!
