Exploring the Fragmentation of Mobile Software Platforms

The mobile software space is getting rather crowded. In the not-so-distant past, a mobile developer's choice was limited to two or three popular native operating systems: Palm OS, Windows Mobile (two flavors), or Symbian. Other platforms were less known or were perceived to not provide for much profit. For a microISV, either the barriers to entry (such as steep signing fees) were too great, or the platform was not popular enough to generate adequate third-party software sales.


Welcome to our new blog. I'm Justine Pratt, President/Partner of Creative Algorithms, LLC. Creative Algorithms is a microISV specializing in mobile software development. Currently we're located in the Chicagoland area. You may have heard of our popular native Palm apps, Trip Boss and Date Wheel. This post will cover navigation of this blog and what I intend to cover.
