MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT

Mobile App Development

Approximately 60% of all internet traffic is now from a mobile device and the figure is increasing rapidly!

Can your business afford not to have a mobile app to enhance the customer experience allowing them access on and offline?

You know how convenient it is when a company you’re interested in has a well-designed and fully functioning mobile app that you can access any time, from anywhere. Well IceBubble can create an app specifically for you through our mobile app development service.

The rise of Mobile Apps

Mobile apps are increasing in popularity at, a what seems like, the speed of light. With more people using their phone to view the internet than a desktop or laptop, it would appear it’s most certainly the way the world is headed.

Your clients and customers also want access to your service and/or product wherever they are, whether they have internet access or not.

It’s a misconception that mobile app development costs more than a new website. It’s true that in the early days the software used to build mobile apps wasn’t as developed as it is now and so creating mobile apps was much more complex and time consuming for the developer. But those days are well behind us, and our mobile app development service probably won’t cost anywhere near what you would expect.

Mobile apps are here to stay… don’t let your business get left behind.

Mobile App Development – Why and How

A mobile app will be secure, stable, responsive, flexible and give the user the absolute best experience, on and offline. And, let’s face it, it’s all about the user experience.

As with our web app development service, if you are thinking of having a mobile app developed then we work with you through a number of stages to ensure it is perfect for your business.

We firstly discuss with you the aim of the app… to manage a business process or system, a reward scheme, to deliver training or services, to deliver information, to track a journey, … the list goes on.

We would then work together with you, keeping the aim in mind, and map out how the app should work to ensure its functionality meets the needs of the business and that the user finds it simple and effective to navigate.

The design and build the first version (‘dev’) comes next.

We both test the ‘dev’ app until we are happy it does everything it needs to and works in the way you wish it to.

A clone is then made and becomes your live app which is published.

Why do we have a clone? Well, that way it’s much easier to make any future changes you may require in the original ‘dev’ version. Once tested, we then add that change to the published version and everyone gets a fantastic service. Businesses don’t stand still and so we ensure our mobile app development allows for updates and new functions.

Our Mobile App Development Toolkit

Although mobile app development is relatively new in development terms, IceBubble have worked with several different techniques and through our own choices have found that Xamarin has allowed us to create brilliant mobile apps.

Since Microsoft acquired Xamarin, the updates have been coming thick and fast and we are more confident than ever in it’s ability.

Microsoft Xamarin
Simple cross platform development. Using Xamarin, we can develop one business logic code and then use this to create iOS, Android, Mac and Windows (UWP) applications. This approach saves considerable time, and also reduces the issues that arise from running multiple different native apps.

Microsoft .Net
Supported, Open Source and multi platform. Using .Net we can build a single application core and deploy it to iOS, Android, Windows and Web.

Microsoft SQL Server
Supported, Stable and fast. Our preferred relational database solution. SQL server has been available for over 20 years and regardless of where you host it, it’s rock solid reliability and integrity remain an industry benchmark.
