Abstract

This paper looks at the lack of engaging content currently being produced by content developers for mobile devices and some of the reasons behind this phenomenon. It questions the relevance of professional content developers when the most entertaining and useful content to be found on mobiles presently is produced and shared by the users themselves and not commercial organisations. It will examine the fundamental problems underlying this lack of professionally developed content and reflect on lessons from past developments in media that may help to hypothesise about the future development of mobile content and consequently a paradigm for content development.
