Mobile Apps
& Platforms

Native Applications

Developed for one specific mobile OS (iOS, Android) using respective platform language. Why native?

  • Best app performance
  • Access to device specific features
  • Native UI out of the box
  • Best in offline mode
  • Access to the latest platform features and APIs.

Cross-platform Applications

Usually a combination of native and web technologies. The result is a standalone app that runs using the embedded web browser or can be created using an intermediate framework with a non-native language (JavaScript, C#, PHP) then compiled into native code. Have you heard about Appzio? Why cross platform?

  • Reuse of the app codebase
  • Short development time
  • Code can be shared up to 80%
  • Easy app updates

Progressive Web Apps

Progressive web apps are technically regular web pages (or websites) but can appear to the user like traditional applications or (native) mobile applications. This new application type attempts to combine features offered by most modern browsers with the benefits of mobile experience.

  • Progressive – Work for every user, regardless of browser choice
  • Responsive – Fit any form factor: desktop, mobile or tablet.
  • App-like – Feel like an app to the user with app-style interactions and navigation.
  • Installable – Allow users to “keep” apps they find most useful on their home screen without the hassle of an app store.
  • Linkable – Easily shared via a URL and do not require complex installation.
