India being the developing market for smartphones have observed different trends processing in the past two three years. Last year the aim of the manufacturers was to bring smartphone at an affordable price which the low end manufacturers were able to do so. The number of people using a smartphone has definitely increased and is still rising up the toll.
This adoption of smartphones not only create an opportunity for app developers to conquer the ecosystem but also increased their reach.
