Phone and Mobile Apps
Phone and Mobile Apps continue to grow in increasingly popular. More businesses, organizations, industries and groups are identifying opportunities to automate day-to-day processes in need of more automation and organization. These apps make complex life or work tasks much simpler to execute. If these tasks or processes are in high demand by large groups, the app project stands a good chance in succeeding. If the demand is low, there’s a high chance of failure. Of course it’s important to do market research long before committing to the build of phone and mobile apps. They’re expensive to build. They’re expensive to manage.
To build them you need good designers and programmers who are familiar with database structure, application design, hosting services, registration procedures and regulations. They need experience with e-commerce, privacy laws, security requirements, and platform architectures including iOS, Android and Windows.
Apps are simple to use, but they’re not simple to create or to manage and maintain. The technical environment in which an app lives is constantly changing. The app must change with it. A reliable development team available for support once the app launches, is critical.
In addition to the right technical skills, an app project requires extensive registration and regulation work. Resources skilled in these things are essential.
And finally, consideration must be given to the online website version of the app because most database functions are performed offline on the server. Also administrative tasks supporting the app are performed online.
Apps can either be native or web apps. We will discuss the differences with you to help determine which is most applicable to your goals.
Native apps are the most difficult to develop because they use the smart phones camera, calculator, schedule or other native functions of the phone.
