Smartphone Application Development

Smartphone App Development
Smartphone app development is the design of software for operation on smartphones. It entails a complex structure of programs to ensure the functionality of the software. There are unique features essential for smartphone applications, and this isn't just about the graphics. There are intricate details that are connected to ensure that every part of the app functions.

While an experienced designer is essential to create an app for a smartphone, developing an app requires different skills to create different features as demanded. Smartphone application development is a creative activity that requires expertise and understanding of different programming languages, design tools, frameworks, etc.

Smartphone app development evolves through different processes that encompass planning, designing of the screens, and the optimization of the user interface. Experts in the digital industry have recognized that a simple idea is all that is required to start a smartphone app development.

What is a Smartphone App Development?

While the smartphone app development companies increase, generally, apps are projected to generate $188.9 billion via app stores of both Google Play, Apple App Store, etc. and in-app advertising. This reveals that smartphone app development skill is a prominent skill to be acquired by individuals, and WorkinGeeks, as a software company, is equipped with such capable individuals. Below are parts of the processes considered for our smartphone app development.

  • Developing a Blueprint. The first process is a careful one. It is the approach and the technique a developer wants to consider in the development of an app. In this stage, a developer identifies the target audience, knows competitors, establishes the goals for the app, notes its objectives, and sets a mobile platform (iOS or Android, or both, or more) for the app.
  • Analysis. This process marks the beginning of app development. It occupies detailed requirements and it prioritizes the resources, cost, target audience, etc. It also involves the identification of skills required for smartphone app development and design. Also, the selection of a name for the app happens at this stage, and research is integral to ensure that the coined name hasn't been used before.
  • UI/UX Design. This polishes the user experience and the outlook of the app. A great smartphone app must be interactive with users and it must engage them as expected. Consideration is given to the information architecture and workflows, which is the determination of what data to receive from users and what data to display to them; the style guide, which gives a design standard for the app, and this process considers the color scheme, how the company brand color could be reflected through the design and other design strategies; the mockups are the final consideration in the development of a smartphone app design, and prototype involves the functionality of the app to ensure the stimulation of user experience.

  • App development. This process involves the reflection on the technical structure, a technology stack, and app projects such as back-ends, Application Programming Interface also referred to as API, and the front-end of the smartphone applications. While the back-end involves the database and other tools supporting app functionality, API is a communication bridge between the back-end server and the app while the mobile app front-end embodies the interactive user experiences that use both API and back-end server to manage data.

  • Testing. Quality assurance test is an integral app development process. It affirms that the app is stable, efficient for users and that its security is ascertained. To ensure adequate testing, questions on user experience should be addressed. This involves detecting firsthand impressions, the interface of the app, etc. It's a process to ensure consistency in all its features. Functional testing and performance testing is as well important to ensure that there are no issues with the app. You can also consider security testing, the speed of the app screen when it loads, the efficacy of its response, etc.

Development Tools

Many development tools enhance a smartphone app. It's worth noting that tools determine the prospect of the app. Below are a few main tools used by developers:

  • Xamarin. As a Microsoft product, it assists in building native apps; it defends app against critical security breaches; and allows technology modifications or updates. It uses a mono framework that reveals native APIs 100%, and it allows device full use. It also allows easy cycle building, testing, deployment, and repeated use of C++ programming language.

  • Sencha. A suitable tool for developing enterprise apps with compatibility with iOS, Android, and Blackberry products. It has an enhanced level of responsiveness through its touch of fingertips. It supports UI widgets for menus, lists, and toolbars, allows end-to-end testing solution for Ext Js, it reduces reliance on numerous versions and libraries, and also permits a single code paradigm across its elements, etc.

  • Framework 7. It is another tool to create native iPhone apps. It operates on a simple HTML layout with specified iOS UI elements, visualizations, animations, and touch sensitivities. It employs a wide range of ready UI elements and it also enhances the video ad experience while introducing custom styles to user applications.

  • Appcelerator. This tool supports operation on iOS, Windows products, Android, and web apps. It is written in JavaScript and it's entirely for native apps. It provides direct access to APIs using JavaScript, it creates dynamic animations for smartphones, and it can also view UI changes in the smartphone operating system.

  • Iconic. Another HTML5 development framework popularly used to create hybrid smartphone apps. As an open-source SDK, it permits the creation of highly interactive apps. It automates workflows and native app binaries can be created right in the cloud with an Iconic package. Iconic also fixes bugs, change contents, and deliver app updates without an app store's approval.

Why does your Business Need an App for Smartphones?

Different businesses need apps for different needs. In WorkinGeeks, business owners say that they need an app to give more value to their customers. That is, creating an app that makes customers loyal, as it empowers proximity between a business owner and customers. This enhances interaction with the business products and the business owner.

More so, building a stronger brand is about increasing customer awareness. An app demonstrates to the users what the brand stands for without putting out an ad for new customers. This creates a bond that later enables a better connection with customers. This promotes the business, and customers are likely to easily recommend the brand to other people without physical contact.

A business app also expands the reach of an entrepreneur, increases demands for products, and ultimately increase profits. With over 2.6 billion people with smartphones, smartphone apps sell an industry than the industry sells itself. To create a smartphone app with WorkinGeeks, developers will incorporate their experience and expertise into your idea and bring it to life.

While we can't give the cost of an app because of specific variations on-demand, smartphone app development cost with Workin Geeks is affordable. Make a request below.
