All of us are aware of the impact made that various mobile apps have made on our lives. Today, there are nearly about 2.5 million apps on the Google Play Store and another 1.8 million on Apple’s App Store. Aren’t these numbers just mind-boggling? But, are you aware that there has been a tremendous surge in the number of teenage mobile app developers too. Several big companies, businesses, and agencies are encouraging and assisting these young teenage developers taking into account just their talent, i.e. the capability to provide the best mobile app development services. These teenagers are neither highly experienced nor do they have any formal training or education in app development. However, what is important is that they have the right skills to build mobile apps.
Examples of some teenage app developers:
1) In 2012, Arjun S., a 15-year-old student from Chennai in India developed a mobile app named Ez school bus locator. This app is a perfect solution for parents to track the position of their child’s school bus whenever they want. For creating this app, he won the MIT ‘App of the month (Best design) award in 2012. He also won the ‘Google India Code to Learn’ contest in 2015. In 2012, Arjun also started a company named LateraLogics.
2) In 2012, Brittany Wenger, a 17-year-old high school student from Florida won the Google Science Fair for her breast cancer diagnosis app. This app helps doctors detect nearly 99 percent of life-threatening tumors.
The spirit of entrepreneurship in these young but highly talented developers is valuable. In addition to this, their confidence, perseverance, self-esteem, and ability to think out-of-the-box is the perfect icing on the cake. Any younger developer offering the best mobile app development services is ready to accept both success and failure in the same way. It is really marvelous to see that these young budding app developers have the fire in them to give something back to society.
Teenage mobile app developers are not only getting high paying jobs in MNCs and enterprises but also many of them are starting their individual mobile app development companies providing the best mobile app development services to businesses. One such example is Let, an Atlanta based startup that was started in 2012. When this venture was started, the two co-founders were teenagers, one 15-year-old and the other a 19-year-old. The most recent undertaking of this startup is Sketch’d, a mobile app for the iOS platform. This app would be the first of its kind which would allow people to draw anything they wish, animate it using their fingers on the screen and also share it instantly with others as a looping video.
With the increasing penetration of smartphones across the globe, there is ample scope and opportunities for young budding developers to provide the best mobile app development services to businesses. In the coming years, more and more businesses and enterprises will need a mobile app in order to survive the fierce competition in today’s market. Moreover, creating mobile apps is not like a typical 9 to 5 corporate job. Because of the mobility factor, young app developers offering the best mobile app development services can create codes as well as work from anywhere and anytime they wish to. They have the option of publishing the created app anytime and from anywhere in the world. This really widens the horizon for young developers when it comes to the work opportunities and potential that mobile app development can offer to them.
