Mobile Application Development

Get your enterprise mobile applications developed as native iOS and/or Android Apps with a technology partner that understands business and technology

Key Benefits:

  • Take advantage of location-based services of the mobile devices
  • Allow access to information without the internet and synchronize when back online
  • Collect photos from the handheld devices for augmented reality or custom workflow apps
  • Enable augmented reality applications for business
  • Leverage Near Field Communications, calendar, Bluetooth, WIFI or custom API interfaces to ERP, CRM apps

It is not just our knowledge of mobile application development—the factor that sets us apart is our approach towards enterprise project. Our development team ensures that we understand your application not just from technical perspective, but also appreciate the business end of it, thus delivering mobile applications that help your business needs.

These apps can help you to engage more customers, through excellent user experience and beautiful, user friendly features. Native mobile apps can be distributed through selected app stores and promoted via mobile application marketplaces.

Below are the mobile platforms we can develop for:

The technology framework that we leverage for development include:

The process we follow for development of mobile app projects is as follows:

Analysis and UI modelling - Enterprise mobile apps are rarely stand alone software like the consumer mobile applications. There may be interactions with the web, API and other infrastucture that need to be thought through. The user interface (UI) for a mobile application is built in a near functional level that you can demonstrate validate on Microsoft Powerpoint or Keynote, using tools like Kyenotopia http://keynotopia.com/
Sprint iterative development - A complete functional code is developed in iterative fashion with deliverables shown every 2 week, refined based on feedback.
Final review and marketplace deployment -- In this phase the mobile application is promoted to various marketplaces for code distribution. On going iterations of the mobile application are routine with new features added on each release.

FAQ’s

  • Is it possible to distribute iPhone apps outside the app store?
     

    There are basically three different official iPhone application distribution methods: - App store With this method anyone with an iPhone can have access to the application. You can distribute an unlimited number of applications like this. Apple gets a 30% cut. Of course Apple must approve your application. - Ad hoc You can distribute applications using ad hoc without going through the app store, but you are limited to a maximum of 100 devices. With this method you can distribute you application from a web site, email, etc. - Enterprise The method is for internal distribution in companies with more than 500 employees.

  • There are various configurations of Android and iOS devices, how do you ensure the developed application will work across all devices?
     

    From Android and iOS to Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry (and pretty much anything else out there), support for multiple screen sizes or resolutions is an important consideration. This article from Anidea.com (http://anidea.com/technology/designer%E2%80%99s-guide-to-supporting-multiple-android-device-screens/) explains how the issues behind varying screen resolutions and densities are handled in the Analysis and UI modelling phase of the project.

  • Can you support local or push notifications on devices?
     

    Notifications — both generated directly by apps and those sent over the web to devices — have become one of the most important gateways for users to interact with their applications. The term “push” usually refers to notifications that come from a server on the web and are sent to the device over a network. The term “local” identifies notifications that are generated by the app running in the background. As far as users are concerned, there’s really no difference. Not surprisingly we find that much user engagement with their applications is triggered by a push notification of some type.

  • I want to develop a application so wanted to know Which takes longer: iPhone development or Android development?
     

    It depends on the app you're working on, the more feature rich an app is, the longer the development time. iPhones also run on a different programming language entirely and likewise Androids. In terms of the time it will take you to get your app verified by Apple before its published in the store,iPhone development takes longer. A downside of iPhone development is, it can only be done in an OS X environment, Apple doesn't allow developments on other platforms while Androids do. Android apps can be developed on Windows, OS X and Linux as long as there is Java.

  • Are you expensive? What are your rates?
     

    When you engage us on a project, we work out the number of sprint cycles and the number of resources (effort/sprint) that are needed for for your project. We work on a blended rate across all resources, giving you exceptional value on predictable cash outlays billed fortnightly. You can pay us via bank transfer, online credit card or over the phone.
