When In The Pocket launched, the world was completely different.

When In The Pocket launched in 2010, we were at the forefront of the mobile revolution. We developed more than 400 applications since and saw the technology shift from a (marketing) gimmick to a powerful tool that people use to shop, pay, be entertained, follow the news, be healthy and so much more.

Since 2008, there are more than two million apps available on Apple’s App Store. Two years ago, it generated more than $50 billion in sales. Its competitor Google has a similar store called Google Play, with nearly 3 million apps, where the 39 most popular applications have each been downloaded more than 1 billion times.

A question we often get asked is: ‘How do you develop a top notch mobile application?’ With a decade of experience, we at In The Pocket know what works and what doesn't. We created this comprehensive guide to help you develop a mobile application by explaining at every step why it's important and added use cases to prove our point.
