Matthew David from TheAppBuilder.com is an intense individual. He has seen the opportunity lying in front of mobile application developers and I suspect that it’s keeping him up at night. No, its not tied to a single platform. The opportunity he sees is based on a trend that involves billions of mobile phone users around the globe. “There are 7 billion people on the planet, 4.5 billion of them have cell phones” David explained, “currently 5% are smartphones.
