One of the modern and upcoming careers is mobile app development thanks to the huge demand for content by the proliferating phone and tablet market. Industry giants like Apple, Google, BlackBerry and Nokia encourage developers to build apps for their respective platforms and have even made available some handy online tool to do so. Now, you really don’t have to wait until you fetch a graduation degree nor there’s any age limit to take the plunge into app development. If you’ve got the resources and skills, then build your app—it’s that simple.This has even encouraged kids and teens to try their hands at creating apps and some of them have even succeeded. Last time we saw 14-year-old Aryan Mann churn out some nifty apps and now the duo of brothers 13-year-old Sanjay Kumaran and 11-year-old Shravan Kumaran from Chennai, show that app development is child’s play. Shravan and Sanjay have together created a company called GoDimensions. Under the GoDimensions banner, some of their notable work are apps like Catch me Cop, Prayer Planet and Color Planet. They have built apps for both Android and iOS platforms and their total download figure is more than 20,000 from over 42 countries. They want to build the thinnest and fastest tablet for the rural areas, and even have a name for it - "GoSheet".Tech2 spoke to these young talents and here’s what they had to say about building apps, basic programming and what they look forward to do in future.Getting started with the first app and basic programmingMany parents believe that mobile phones are destructive for their children, but it quite turned the other way around for Shravan and Sanjay. When the kids got their hands on some mobile gaming and thoroughly enjoyed it, their father urged them to try building a game and then play it. And that is how they got started with creating their first app. This was also possible as the boys had a fair knowledge of programming and had written small programs earlier. “We knew programming and were doing some small programs.  When we got mobile and were playing games with it. Our dad told us why you don’t develop games than playing them. That got us started with app development,” both say in unison.
