The internet continues to rapidly expand and that constant hunger for new and innovative ways of accessing and sharing online information is as prevalent as ever.
Whilst 20 years ago people were getting excited by the fact that they could download a full-size photo in about 2 minutes, now thanks to superfast broadband speeds, incredibly accessible Wi-Fi connections and other technological breakthroughs, online data and content is now sent and received at lightning speeds.
In fact it’s got to a point where users literally take the internet for granted and become easily frustrated by anything taking longer than a second or 2 to load. But it’s not just PC-based internet access that has changed the way in which we access this virtual highway.
We live in incredibly advanced times where technology plays an important role in our daily lives. It’s almost unthinkable to imagine our lives without these technologies as they have very quickly become a necessity, and as the internet has evolved so have other innovative devices such as mobile phones. Those huge brick-sized cellular phones from the late 80’s have rapidly evolved into powerful pocket-sized devices which are now capable of assisting us with almost anything on a daily basis.
No longer are mobiles used simply for calls and since they have been able to harness the power of the internet the possibilities of what can be achieved simply using a mobile device is simply amazing.
The mobile platform is relatively new compared to other more established internet platforms. Yet it’s the most used and most accessible way in which the vast majority of us now connect to the internet. From streaming movies and TV shows to playing powerful mobile-based games, the pairing of the internet with these influential platforms have given developers an almost unrestrained opportunity to create outstanding new application software and incredibly useful mobile-based tools and other features.
Using a mobile device or tablet is certainly the most convenient way in which to access the web and it has seen numerous industries not only evolve, but emerge because of this. Casino sites such as Playcosmo have arrived allowing mobile users to access real-time virtual casino action, whilst the gambling industry as a whole has benefited greatly from allowing its online gaming services to be readily available to more and more potential players. Which has not only helped increase its popularity but more importantly drive more revenue.
The gaming industry has also been able to utilise the platform for some inspired developments. Massively multiplayer online games (MMOG or MMO) are becoming more popular on the platform where thousands and thousands of players from around the world can join in on the gaming action in mere seconds. Other rising industries such as eSports are taking full advantage of the mobile market to drive their gaming and streaming output but also to spread across a wider reaching audience of both players and online spectators.
