Mobile programming involves developing applications and software for mobiles. The job of a mobile app developer is to create applications that can used on tablets and smartphones. They are then able to publish these apps on the app store, making them available for public use. In addition, they are able to provide solutions for technical issues in mobile development.
Mobile programmers need to be fluent in languages like Swift, Ionic, Java, and be familiar with tools like iDE's, iOS, and Android SDK. A language like Swift is a powerful programing tool to develop apps on Apple devices. Swift is interactive and the syntax is concise which makes it the perfect choice for students who are just beginning to develop mobile programs.
