If you have been thinking about a mobile app, talk to Knoxweb. Knoxweb has been in the business since 1996 and has been on the ground floor with all things web ever since, including mobile applications.
Knoxweb has it Going On
Mobile applications are quickly outgrowing the popularity of mobile responsive websites, and while both are important to business, some companies rely on apps for the bulk of their advertising efforts.
Because Knoxweb has been in the business for decades the team understands everything there is about the web. In addition, there are no worries when it comes to mobile application development.
What are Mobile Applications?
For the uneducated mobile apps are designed to run on mobile devices such as wearables, tablets and phones.
These software applications are built specifically for wireless computing devices instead of laptop or desktop computers with three types of applications available, Native, Web and Hybrid Apps
Native Apps are developed for a specific operating system or platform
Web Apps work on mobile devices and are responsive versions of a website
Types of Mobile Applications
Native Mobile Apps
Native applications are built for the operating system or OS of a mobile device. That means that you can have native iOS applications on every device and platform.
Because native applications are built for a single platform, you won’t be able to access something that was built for an Android if you use an iPhone.
Native apps are normally quicker, more reliable and usually more efficient with the resources on your device. For example, native apps utilize customer’s wants and needs more than other types of apps.
Behaving similar to native applications, web apps are accessed on a browser on your mobile phone, wearable or tablet. These responsive websites adapt to the device that you are on. In addition, you don’t have to download or install code.
Web apps depend entirely on the devices browser. Also, because they are basically a shell for another site, some functions will not work offline. Even if the app has an offline mode feature, your application still requires an internet connection.
Knoxweb explains that hybrid apps have their own home screen brand icon and are fast. They feel and look like native applications but are actually web mobile apps that look like they are native. They are responsive and fast and can also function offline.
Hybrid apps are more economical that native applications and load quickly making them perfect for slow connections. Hybrid apps also give fans a consistent experience.
Choosing the Perfect Mobile Application
If time is of the essence, a web app is the only solution. Knoxweb explains that because it operates on a single codebase, development time is faster.
If limited investment dollars are what is holding you back, a web based app or a hybrid app would be the way to go.
Hybrid applications allow you to test your market with very little product. This also means that your users will be able to use your applications within a couple of months. If your app is successful you will be able to afford a native app later on.
Native apps are simply the best if you have money and time on your hands. Native apps give users stability, speed and customization.
