More people access the web via mobile devices than from personal computers. As the number of devices expands dramatically, users are becoming accustomed to having both web and computing access via small, mobile devices and phones. This has resulted in a significant increase in demand for developers with experience using multiple platforms such as iOS and Android. At the same time, the growth in popularity of cloud computing has increased the ability for these devices to perform functions that previously required computation power unavailable on mobile devices.
