There are so many mobile phone apps on the cloud but not all would fit ones needs. As you probably already know a cloud is a remote server network which can be accessed by users in need of cloud hosted apps from a web browser from any location that has internet access.
Mobile phone apps take a lot of battery power and certain phone capacity, so not all apps will perform well on your phone. Thus web development companies go for further improvements to deliver newer apps with more sophisticated operations without having to compromise on battery life because the hosting is being done by a remote server PC on the cloud. I’ll name a just a few great performers on the mobile apps market operating on the cloud:
