Business applications taking charge in app trends

According to information released by iPhoneAppQuotes, a service making it easier for business and entrepreneurs to connect with iPhone application developers to receive price quotes for developing their iPhone apps, business applications are now leading a changing trend in iPhone app development, as we are starting to see a slowdown in growth of sports, games, and entertainment application development.

With over 65,000 applications available in the iTunes App Store and over 100,000 registered iPhone App developers worldwide, there are plenty of opportunities out there to get your application developed if you have that great idea, as we also covered with the service provided by companies such as the AppIncubator. iPhoneAppQuotes which is an exclusive network for people with ideas and developers are now seeing a shift in trends of what type of application are sought after for development.

They are reporting that in the first quarter there was a 50/50 split between business and consumer applications, while in Q2 this has shifted to 70/30 split in favour of business applications, as more businesses are starting to see the value of the growing iPhone and smartphone market as a new route to market for their products and services.

The early adopters of the iPhone application market, such as games and music application, have seen a slowdown in development, while the growth areas at the moment seem to be within medical, education, business, and book applications.

What we could be seeing is a shift towards the iPhone being used more for business purposes, as well as the fact that many small business and entrepreneurs are starting to see the value of the market that can be reached through iPhone applications, after perhaps sitting on the fence early on to see how it would develop.

It will be interesting to see how these trends will affect both the types of applications available as well as the quality of the apps to come. We expect to see more professional applications focused on making both business and life easier for iPhone and smartphone users out there.
