Published on Jun 20, 2014 in App Development

Muthukumar Prakasam is the CEO of Rhytha. The company was founded in 2006 by himself. It employs up to 15 people and it is based in Chennai, India. Their first focus was web development but decided to switch to mobile when the market started moving in that direction. Here is what Muthukumar had to say about his company and the mobile world:

What do you do?

We are focused on apps for business’s to extend their existing backend systems on to the mobility devices. We have provided services for Human resources, engineering firms to extend their existing backend to newer mobile interfaces for their employees, customers and vendors. We have developed image based social apps as well as civil estimation apps for on field engineering teams.

What would you say are the best apps you have developed and why?

One of the best apps we worked on is a civil engineering app. The ability to understand civil engineering concepts and engineering calculations to get the accurate results made our mid night oil burn. But at the end we where very happy to get this done and so was the client.

There are couple of goofy apps as well we have done. is a style app which based on weather conditions gives you a list of comfort clothing for that day.

What apps would you have loved to develop and why?

LINE is something we would have loved to do. Its simple, no nonsense with loads of stickers for easy expression of your feelings. Whatsapp which is also similar to LINE makes communication lot easier with no fuss.

Luminosity is a app which I admire, which provides good exercise for your cognitive skills using various puzzles.

What are the 5 apps you use the most on a daily basis?

  • Mailbox on iPhone - very easy to delete spam mails with a swipe.
  • Google maps - cannot got out with it.
  • Soundcloud - off beat and good music
  • thefutureFM - variety of songs from indy groups
  • Facebook - To check in with associates and friends.

Which mobile device is the best in the market right now?

Obviously iPhone is one of the best on the market with a stable OS, easy development and apps eco system make it easier to maintain and support apps built for the ios platform. Google nexus provides the best android experience as far as I know.

What kind of device/platform will be the next big thing?

Mobile content moving into the living room will be the next best thing. There is already google chromecast which connects your android devices with TV, same with Apple TV. Mobile devices have started processing rich content and for better experience and feel, moving to larger screens will have some synergy.

The other is wearable devices, but this might have to be dumbed down for non-technical users to explode their popularity among general public. Right now it has only benefits for tech savy people.
