We can help your business build an iOS app to perfectly complement your digital offering – whether this is a consumer app for your customers to use, or an internal app to help streamline your own business operations and improve efficiencies.
Before you start an app development project, it’s essential to become familiar with the basic demands of the App Store. But don’t worry, we’ll be there every step of the way, to answer any iOS app creation questions that you may have.
There are over one billion iPhones out there, so choosing iOS as your app’s primary platform is a safe bet. With Apple controlling their own ecosystem, there’s much less fragmentation than on Android. Put simply, by choosing iOS you don’t have to worry about how your app will display on an endless list of devices, screen sizes and resolutions.
Because iOS only runs on iPhones and iPads, the functionality fit between iOS and the device meshes perfectly. You won’t have to find a work around to get a function of a device to work on the operating system. If Apple have released the functionality within iOS, the latest iPhone or iPad will be able to use that functionality.
One of the key considerations when selecting a platform for your app should be: can the operating system and device do what you need it to?
For example, if you need your app to connect to a specific bluetooth peripheral, and some Android devices cannot connect to this, you may have to develop your app on iOS to facilitate this. This example only highlights the importance planning your app in advance to determine what you need it to do before starting developing it.
Apple are very good at issuing regular updates to iOS versions. This is usually done annually and announced at WWCD with Software Developer Kits (SDKs) issued to developers almost immediately. Any issues or bugs found in this beta version of iOS is then usually fixed within a couple of weeks, meaning ios developers aren’t battling through a buggy operating system resulting in errors and costly mistakes in your app that need fixing at additional cost at a later stage. Apple also do not let users revert back to an older version of iOS after upgrading to the latest version. This makes it easy for you to keep your app up-to-date and supported on the latest versions.
iOS only operates on Apple iPhones and iPads which means your app will display perfectly across Apple’s pre-defined screen sizes and resolutions.
There are over one billion iOS enable devices out there, and the platform is adept at engaging users that have a demand for premium services.
Apple continually issue updates to iOS versions allowing you to take advantage of new features and functions as and when they’re released.
When developing an iOS app, it’s important to choose an experienced iPhone or iPad app developer that has strong technical ability, and are well-known as experts in the field. We only develop iOS apps using native programming language, such as Objective-C and Swift, and never use hybrid ios app development tools and languages.
We never outsource. From consultancy to design, and ios app development to QA/testing and implementation; we manage all aspects of a project in-house. And that gives us the flexibility to ensure that your app ends up being exactly what you wanted, and most importantly, a success.
We keep up-to-date with the latest Apple announcements meaning that we can inform you of new functionality available in the operating system that you may not have been aware of. If you already have an iOS app in development that you’re not happy with, or worse, your stakeholders are not happy with; don’t worry.
We have worked with a number of customers who have come to us mid-project to help get them back on track. Not everyone has the luxury of getting involved in a project from the very start and planning every element of it before work begins.
