Making mobile work

Mobile phone access to the internet has increased by thousands of percent in recent years. The opportunity to deliver interactive content to someone wherever they are is highly compelling. It’s not unreasonable to speculate that within five years, brands that do not have an effective mobile presence will be perceived in a similar way to those that did not have a website five years ago: with puzzlement and a little suspicion.

Mobile content consumption has driven the spectacular success of mobile apps. With more than 160,000 apps on the Apple iTunes store, yet far fewer on Nokia’s Ovi app store and the Android Marketplace, you could be forgiven for thinking that the only way to go mobile is to create an app, deliver it to Apple and sit back and enjoy the rewards.
