There’s no definite classification of mobile applications. All software for mobile devices can be viewed from different perspectives.

If we consider the mobile application in terms of functionality, there are many different types of applications that can be divided into the following categories: business, sports, design, tools, books, and reference books, multimedia, communication, and so forth.
If we classify mobile applications from their development, they will be divided into such categories as native – these applications are created by developers specifically for certain devices, web – applications are created for the convenience of work of mobile devices with web-pages and mashups that combine the qualities of two other types.
For the development of each type of mobile applications certain platforms are used, for example Android Studio, X code, Visual Studio, Aptana Studio, Intel XDK and other. Each of platforms for mobile applications has an integrated environment of development that provides tools that allow a developer to program, test and deploy applications to a variety of mobile devices.
