Mobile application development is a flourishing tendency, given the increasing popularity of smartphones. Nowadays, users are accessing their desired services on the smartphone by means of dedicated applications as the latter offers a more customized and prompt service. In addition, companies are also looking to persuade users by offering interactive and effective mobile applications. Mobile application developers are using IoT to develop better applications. However, there is no generalized consensus on the selection of best architecture or even the most suitable communications protocols to be used on an IoT application development. Therefore, this article aims at presenting approaches, architectures, and methodologies relevant to the development of mobile IoT solutions.
