An application developer should take in account for the following things:

  • Mobile devices have smaller displays and wide variety of display sizes.
  • Text inputting is slow in mobile devices.
  • Softkeys are used for activating commands in mobile devices; the number and purpose of softkeys vary between devices from different manufacturers.
  • Connection and data transfer between the device and the server is slower than in a fixed domain.
  • The amount of cookie data that can be stored in a mobile device is limited.
  • Mobile users may have to pay for each piece of transferred data.
