About Mobile App Development
When you plan to develop a mobile app, you need to have a specific idea and a particular target group in mind. This particular idea should be comprehensible for the developer who will build the app. Moqod can help you with creating a complete concept for your app.
Apps can be built in different ways. There are multiple types of apps to choose from whenever building one. You can choose from:
- Web apps
Each type of app has its advantages. It is therefore vital to think carefully about which type of app is best for you. Moqod will help you to find the right type for your project.
Android and iOS have dominated the mobile landscape for many years. In the Netherlands, 97% of smartphone users use iOS or Android. If you want to reach your target group using mobile development in an app, this app must be compatible with both Android and iOS. Native apps are apps that are developed for a specific device or platform. So, in this case, these are the platforms mentioned above. Native apps follow the design standards of these platforms. Each platform speaks its own language. This means that you will have to have a separate app developed for both Android and iOS. Do you also want Windows users to be able to use your app? Then you will also need to have an app developed specifically for Windows. Native apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
Native apps have a couple of advantages such as the best performance, more security, more interactive and intuitive, access to all the devices' features and fewer bugs during the development phase.
When an app is developed using a cross-platform development tool, it is possible to design the app in one language. The codes are then converted to the user platform for which your app is intended. A cross-platform app has several advantages. You pay fewer development costs than when you have a native app developed, and the app is findable in both the Google Play Store and the App Store.
Cross-platform apps have multiple advantages because you can use the app on multiple devices and it's cheaper to develop than native apps.
Progressive Web Apps
Web apps are apps that use a web browser. Web applications can therefore be consulted via the Internet. In the past, you always had to download programs, but since the arrival of web apps, this is no longer necessary. This is because all the data of a web app is stored on a web server.
Moqod has written an article about the advantages and disadvantages of progressive web apps.
