Mobile App Development

Mobile App Development Tyler, TX

Mobile app development is the process by which a mobile app is created for mobile devices. These applications can be delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing to provide an “application-like” experience within a Web browser. Apps can be divided into two categories, native and web-based. We build both. They are very different in functionality and cost; however, look very similar to the average user.

Native Phone App Development 

(currently, we have a three-month waiting list to begin full native app development)

A native app, or native application, is a software application built in a specific programming language for a specific device platform, either iOS or Android. Native iOS apps are often written in Swift or Objective-C, and native Android apps are often written in Java.

Web-Based Phone App Development 

(We call them Phone Apps, but they are just apps or applications that can exist in lots of places.)

A web-based application is a program that is accessed over a network connection using HTTP rather than existing within a device’s memory. A Native App “lives” on your phone or Pad. Web-based applications often run inside a web browser. However, web-based applications also may be client-based, where a small part of the program is downloaded to a user’s desktop. Still, the processing is achieved over the internet on an external server. Web apps are much less expensive than full native phone apps and can be created in a shorter time frame.

We are certified Apple Developers

Without this certification, you cannot build full native apps which will work on Apple devices.

How the Phone or Web App sausage is Made

Application software developers must consider a long list of screen sizes, hardware specifications, and configurations because of intense competition in mobile software and changes within each platform. Just imagine that each time your phone is updated, the software for all the apps must also be updated. If it is a custom app, this is done manually.

Then we finally get to Design Your Phone App

As part of the development process, the mobile user interface (like user experience) design is essential in creating mobile apps. Mobile UI considers constraints, contexts, screen, input, and mobility as outlines for design. Our mobile UI design’s goal is mainly for an understandable, user-friendly interface. Keep it simple – the least number of clicks is the way. The high-quality mobile apps design should consider a users’ limited attention span, minimize clicks, and use a minimum set of functions.

Applications Development Considerations on the Back End

(Boring tech stuff mainly – but you have to have it.)

Mobile UIs, or front-ends, rely on mobile back-ends to support access to systems. The mobile back-end facilitates data routing, security, authentication, authorization, working off-line, and service orchestration. This functionality is supported by a mix of middleware components, including mobile app server, mobile backend as a service (MBaaS), and service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure. Considerations of functionality associated with E-commerce sales completion, credit card routing, bank transfers, etc., are examples of decisions that must be made as part of the design process.

Pricing for Native Phone Apps and Web-Based Apps

Don’t be mad. You can Google it, and we will be cheaper, but each one is so different due to the fact that each extra functionality costs time to develop. (code) If you need a QR code to scan and a menu to pop up, that is easy. You want it to take your order and pay online? The price just went up twenty times. Call and let’s talk about your individual needs. We want you to find the most cost-effective answer to your business’s challenges.
