app development

Let's build you a mobile app .
What are the benefits of having one you say?

Native + Hybrid Apps

We develop both!

Native App development

What is native code? In basic terms, an app developed in native code is built in a specific programming language, for the specific device platform, either iOS or Android.

Native iOS apps are written in Swift or Objective-C while native Android apps are written in Java.

Unlike web apps that are written primarily in Javascript, native apps are applications written in languages that the platform they are being built for accepts.

This type of app development is used by a large number of popular international companies, mainly for their better User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI). 

Hybrid App development

Also known as cross-platform development, only one code base is needed to build, test and maintain the app.

Hybrid code works across multiple platforms, and is a great choice for those looking to make their apps available on platforms beyond iOS and Android devices.

These are a good option too if one has time and / or resource constraints as only one code base is used relative to native app development.

Another possible advantage is in most cases, hybrid apps are easier to scale to another platform. Once an app is built for one platform, it can be launched on another like Windows Mobile.
