WASHINGTON, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today SourcingLine published their Leaders Matrix identifying 15 leading mobile application developers. The Leaders Matrix maps each firm's areas of focus against their ability to deliver as proven through examples of past projects and client references. SourcingLine also made available analysis of key sub segments of the mobile application development market including Leaders Matrices on iPhone application developers and Android application developers. This follows on last month's publication of a Leaders Matrix for web designers.
The Mobile Application Developers Leaders Matrix comprises firms that cover all areas of mobile development including iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows, and HTML5. The top developers were selected based on over a dozen quantitative and qualitative factors such as client references, company profiles, portfolios of past work, key employees, industry recognition, and website authority.
Over a hundred companies applied to be included in the Mobile Application Developers Leaders Matrix, but only 15 firms were selected. The firms include the following: WillowTree Apps, Applico, Komarov Mobile, Fueled, Fuzz Productions, Blue Whale Apps, Ebbex, APPEK Mobile Apps, QBurst, Tech Ahead Software, ComcSoft, Killer Mobile Software, Future Help Designs, Quartus Technology, and Mobisoft Infotech.
"Selecting a mobile app development partner is an arduous process with no guarantee of finding the best match for your specific project. Information about mobile developers is difficult to acquire and assimilate," stated Sam Pettee, Senior Analyst at SourcingLine. "Our Leaders Matrix brings together this information in one location, allowing buyers to confidently and quickly create a shortlist of potential partners."
SourcingLine's effort to identify the top mobile developers will be ongoing and they encourage firms with a proven record to apply to participate in updates to their research.
