The mobile market is flooded with fun, useful and engaging applications. These apps are becoming increasingly important to a company’s success but many companies are simply recreating their product for mobile without giving adequate consideration to the differences in mobile and Web based usage patterns. Additionally, specific benefits that the Apple and Android platforms offer are commonly not fully leveraged. During this session, Aaron Forth, vice president of product for Mint.com and director of Intuit Personal Finance Group, will discuss how companies can analyze customer usage patterns to develop the best possible mobile application and mold the app to harness the advantages of each platform.
