iPhone / iOS
iPhone and iPad apps have opened a world of opportunities for business. It’s a creative and exciting evolution for you and for iOS app developers like us.
In fact, because we’re senior level IOS App developers, no challenge is too great. We can successfully (and easily) create anything from simple landing pages to full mobile eCommerce deployments.
Native Application Development
Given that app building software can have bugs, we prefer to develop iOS apps with a focus on native code. As such, your iPhone or iPad app can easily leverage all the devices features (GPS to camera, Bluetooth, accelerometer, to name a few). We are able to code your application in either Objective-C or Swift, we lean towards Unity for game based applications and have done work with Cordova and other SDKs. If you are not sure if we can work on your application just ask!
For simple applications without extensive multimedia we also develop applications in a cross-platform manner using PhoneGap, Titanium and Xamarin. We do not recommend these app building tools to be used in large application, and we are happy to council you on your project and discuss the pros or cons based on your specific application needs.
Slick User Interface
When compared to web based applications, iOS native mobile application development enables attractive native phone features and abilities, allowing us to create a more rich user experience for your application. We are very adept at creating a vivid visual experience for your users, and helping to create the full user experience in detail.
We are able to take full control of the project as a whole and provide the full application layout and wireframe along with full graphic design. If you have staff graphic designers we can also work with you team to create the overall application look, which we then turn in to a functional application.
Internal Apps or Revenue Generating Apps
We build applications for many different uses, and often our clients use the applications for internal purposes only. That is to say, their staff have access to the mobile app but the app is not widely available on the public app store. This is used when the data in the application is private and not for public display, or the goal of the application is for staff communication and not to involve the public. We are happy to build the applications in either direction and can help explain which is ideal for your project.
We also build applications for customers who are looking to profit directly from the application, both in the Apple App store and Google Play. In these situations the client needs to setup their own account with these two services, in order to collect the revenue and manage taxes. We can discuss with you how to go about this process and get your app setup live on the app stores.
Device Use in the Marketplace
iPhone used to monopolize the app marketplace, but since the inception of Android smart devices, consumer Android adoption has delivered a whopping takeover with a more than 70 percent market share vs. 21 percent for iPhone by 4th quarter 2012 according to the Business Insider . Take this news with a grain of salt however; the Android following has taken off worldwide, while in North America iOS retains an over 65% market share, according to this article in Forbes .
It’s an interesting time for native device application development: it is generally accepted that iOS application development comes first, and Android apps play second fiddle.
“It’s rare for the creators of a significant app to simply ignore Android altogether. But for many companies, the Android version is what you get to work on after you’ve shipped the iOS one, leaving Google’s ecosystem in a mode of permanent catch-up.” –Harry McCracken Time.com Contributing Editor
