Mobile Application Security Assessment


A mobile application (or mobile app) is a software application that usually runs in smartphones or tablets. Mobile Applications are mainly available to download (either for free or with a small fee) through the corresponding stores like Apple App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone Store, and BlackBerry App World.
