When we talk about mobile applications, it is important that we be aware of what operating system the application supports. As we have different operating systems (OS) in computers, desktops, and laptops, we have different OS for mobile phones as well. In a mobile device, we have three major operating system, which is Android (Google), iOS (Apple) and Windows (Microsoft). There is another operating system as well like, Symbian (Nokia), BlackBerry (BlackBerry) and others. Each OS has their own set of compatibility with the applications that are developed. Thus an application should be developed in such a way that is compatible with multiple OS platforms. As that becomes quite a challenging task, the same application is built for different operating systems. For example, if Application 1 supports Android, then the same Application 1 will be built in a way that will support iOS and Windows as well. Applications are nothing but a software that works on your smartphone. It can also be a game or an entertainment service. A collection of a different set of programs put together makes up an application.
