There have been many developments in the field of mobile technology in the last few years. Mobile technology grown very fast. Initially mobiles were only for rich but now all household have mobiles and using mobile technology because of great development in this field. Which is possible due to research in this area. Not only big companies but individuals also been engaged in this field. Billions of mobile application has been developed by software developers. In the recent year’s mobile application are developed by software developers to considering the demands of our society. Mobile application developers faces many challenges like size, memory and the functionality. So in this paper we focused on the differences between traditional estimation model and mobile estimation model and hereby, proposed a new model for mobile applications and partially validated the same.
