How MotherApp is trying to eliminate the cross-platform mobile development pain by automating it

When I saw MotherApp for the first time I knew they were on to something unique and ahead of the curve. After running a mobile company for years one of the biggest challenges was making sure our software ran across multiple mobile platforms — iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile and Android. That’s where MobileApp comes in.

Ken Law, co-founder and CEO of MotherApp, shows us how far their product has come in a short time and why you may want to enlist them to help get your content across all mobile platforms. He is experienced, candid and seems to be having a blast as he pushes the MotherApp platform hard (plus, he’s looking for a MotherApp evangelist but you’ll have to watch the video to see how to apply!)

    The single platform approach to mobile application development is critical for so many reasons. It allows the developers to adapt as new smartphones become more prevalent and makes the building and deployment processes a lot simpler.
