“Make Your Mobile App Faster”
Today, users spend about three hours every day on their mobile devices and 86% of this time is spent on mobile apps. However, mobile performance is erratic and slow; mobile apps are at least 3X slower than websites based on desktop/PC. This is a huge disconnect, with real implications for enterprises reliant on mobile. Slow mobile apps lead to loss of user engagement, dilute brand affinity and ultimately loss of revenue. There are billions of dollars involved. The key question about mobile performance is why does it continue to suffer? Why are current acceleration solutions not helping with mobile performance? What is it that makes mobile so uniquely different from the desktop/PC world?
In this presentation, Kartik Chandrayana, CEO & Co-founder of Twin Prime, will explain some of the challenges that are unique to mobile, the efficacy of current solutions and describe Twin Prime’s novel approach to mobile performance.Kartik ChandrayanaCEO & Co-founderTwin Prime
