In order to raise the awareness of industrial practitioners and researchers regarding specific PLE-related issues and approaches, this paper shares some experiences made by Insiders Technologies regarding the development and provisioning of mobile app variants and the impact of variability on the app architecture. Using the smart MOBILE app product line as an example, the paper characterizes the mobile app market, identifies key variant drivers, introduces influential technologies and their constraints, and discusses viable tactics to support adequate variability in the architecture of a mobile app.
