Mobile app development can be complicated, so let us take the hassle away and help you decide which type of app best suits your business. By looking at your business needs we will be able to suggest the best approach, whether this be a native app, hybrid app or web app.
These apps live on the user’s device and are downloaded from the relevant app store. They are typically used where performance is paramount and are coded in programming languages for each type of device. To cover both Apple and Google Play stores, the app would need to be built twice.
These work in the same way websites do, they are built using web standards and run in the browser on your mobile device. They don’t appear in the App Stores and need to be accessed by going to a website address.
For most businesses this is what we recommend, they are a mix between native and web apps. To the user they will look and feel like a native app and are downloaded from the app store. They can cut down on development time and cost as they are built in a similar way to web apps with an additional step to compile them so they can be uploaded to the relevant app stores.
Let us come out and visit you, once we understand your requirements we will be able to talk you through the best options and why.
When building an app a full understanding of your business needs is paramount. This is why we arrange a planning meeting to go through the details and exact requirements.
From this we can build a flow chart to show a user’s journey through the app. This helps to ensure a well thought out user flow ensuring all requirements are met.
Once you are happy with this we can start to build wireframes of the app pages. This allows us to take a content first approach that ensures all important information is easily accessible.
After we have the user flow and layouts sketched out, we will start to build the design to match your company branding.
We are then ready to deploy the app to the relevant app stores as well as any server set up for dynamic content.
