Understanding mobile apps

What they are and how they work

Mobile apps are software programs made for use on phones and tablets. These apps can come in a few different types, all with their own pros and cons. Native apps are made to work on a particular kind of phone, like an iPhone or an Android, and are usually smoother to use but need to be made separately for each operating system. Web apps are like websites that you can open on your phone's internet browser; they work on any kind of phone but might not be as smooth to use as native apps. There's also a middle-of-the-road option called hybrid apps, which are web apps that have some features of native apps.

Apps serve a multitude of business-critical functions, from enhancing internal communication and facilitating e-commerce transactions to monitoring health metrics for employee wellness programs. Their versatility and user-friendly interfaces make them indispensable tools for modern businesses, streamlining operations and improving both employee productivity and customer engagement. In an increasingly mobile world, apps are becoming central to how businesses operate and interact with their stakeholders.

Our approach to mobile app development

From planning to post-launch

Our mobile app development process follows a collaborative approach. We begin by performing a comprehensive analysis of your business goals, target audience, and specific app needs. This allows us to gather your specific requirements, set well-defined objectives, and pinpoint essential functionalities for your app and business success.

Through incremental testing, we test across a range of devices as well as push out the app to test on your own devices throughout the development process. When your app is ready to be released, we can assist you with the process of distributing it to the app stores or supply you with what you need for your app’s launch.

After the app's release, we offer continuous support and maintenance, tackling technical issues, adding updates or new features. We ensure that the application remains up-to-date with yearly reviews of the app and in the app stores, maintaining a smooth experience for your users.
