The Windows mobile application development environment is the oldest in the market even if it is the underdog, we have been building apps for Windows mobile since 2005 using Windows CE systems.

Microsoft has invested heavily in the new Windows mobile platform which is designed to follow the more popular Itunes and Google play systems. Hence this “original” mobile development platform is gaining new ground.

The key advantage of the windows mobile application development platform is the close integration with the hugely popular Microsoft Windows platform; the interface is based on the new Metro design that is used on all of the new Microsoft operating systems.

Because of its intuitive features, Windows Mobile OS provides a good, reliable, and professional platform that can be leveraged for application development. This platform works great for clients with Microsoft technology investments. Easy integration with Outlook, Windows Active directory, and services like Office 360 make this a very attractive choice.

Our Microsoft.NET development team builds custom applications for all kinds of web and desktop based systems; it has been easy for us to work with the Windows Mobile platform as the IDE and Framework remain same. This gave us a big head start when it came to building Windows mobile apps.

Our Windows apps development goes across a wide range of platforms and databases like Windows Windows Mobile (6.0), Windows Mobile (8.0) Windows CE, MS SQL Server CE and .Net Compact Framework. We often deliver solutions that are closely integrated with other web and desktop based .Net applications.

The time-tested Microsoft .Net framework makes the Windows Mobile development platform extremely versatile and easy to program.

Good management will defeat a bad economy.” – Stan Slap The International Monetary Fund’s July 2019 World Economic Outlook notes that global economic growth remains torpid. And, global growth is forecast to grow 2.3% in the rest of 2019. The given reasons for this weak economic outlook are primarily to do with the continued and unresolved trading tensions between China and the United States of America. A weak economic outlook is never good news for business. Succinctly stated, it generally translates into poor financial performance due to subdued sales.
