    Hi, I’m the founder of – a cloud hosting platform for mobile applications.
    I would like to throw in my 2 cents from the experience of launching cloudbase.

    I spent some time pitching the project and idea to mobile developers before we set to work and, interestingly, the answer I got most often was: “why would my app need to be connected to the internet?”

    It felt like talking to PC application developers in the 90s, before the .com boom.

    We are all talking about the cloud as storage for consumer data but there’s much more to it. Thousands of applications are released every single day and only a fraction of these make use of the potential of internet connectivity, now ubiquitous on smartphones. There is a wealth of data out there just waiting to be queries, and more importantly collected, by mobile apps.

    We are at the beginning of this transition and I wouldn’t be surprised if 2 years from now all of the application we interact with will have a “network” component. Be it social interaction between its users or “augmented data” fetched from all over the net in real time.
