Types of applications based on device operating systems
The world is divided into smartphone users and desktop or laptop computer users. These devices usually run one of the following operating systems:
- Windows is the most popular among computer users.
The creation of applications for an operating system (OS) has its main requirements and must meet specific conditions, as well as the use of various tools for development and design.
If you are interested in having a mobile or a computer app created, you can rely on our developers in London who are at your service with tailored solutions.
How to create an Android OS application
Android is by far one of the popular operating systems in the world. Designed and implemented by Google, the number of mobile phones running on it is the largest in the world.
Business owners addressing Android users can obtain many financial benefits if they have their apps created for them. At the moment, Google Play Store is one of the richest digital libraries in the world in terms of applications. But what does it entail to have a mobile app created for this operating system?
Our app development team in London has access to a wide range of programs they can use, however, the advantage of having an Android app comes from the fact that the mother company has launched the Android SDK kit for developers in 2007. Ever since it is possible to create mobile apps with the help of the resources provided by this kit. Android SDK facilitates:
- access to numerous libraries of programs and documentation for the creation of applications;
- new updates to the kit just like in the case of operating system;
- the use of interface on any desktop operating system, from Windows to OSX;
- access to all the tools needed to design and develop the app quickly.
All instruments are integrated with graphic interfaces for the simple use of the developer. The main advantage of this kit is that the mobile app can be developed quickly and at competitive costs.
The development of an Android OS app takes around 18 weeks, which is why if you decide on one, you can get in touch with our developers in London right away.
iOS mobile app development services
iOS is the main competitor of Android when it comes to mobile devices, including tablets. This operating system is usually used by persons and business owners interested in a more personalized experience. The fact that iOS uses only applications dedicated to it, makes the creation of apps for it more expensive.
Our London app developers are at the service of those interested in launching a mobile app for iOS.
An iOS mobile app requires a source code that needs to be integrated with the React Native platform. All these steps are created by our front-end developers in London. Then, back-end programmers will take over and work on the:
- creation of the media library;
- geo-location functions;
- push notification enabling functions.
iOS is a more pretentious operating system, and it requires more work which attracts a higher cost for the app.
One of the main steps that need to be completed before launching an app is testing. In the case of iOS apps, attention is paid by our programmers in order to ensure smooth running before the launch.
Why it is still important to have Windows apps created
Microsoft’ Windows is one of the oldest operating systems and the most employed on desktop and laptop computers. Over time, it has gone through many changes which have given it a modern look and the possibility of implementing various apps for those looking to completing their tasks as quickly as possible.
Because Windows is an operating system employed by companies, it is also very stable which is why the main benefit of having an app created for this OS is its stability.
If you are interested in having a Windows app developed, our specialists in London are at your service.
Also, if you cannot decide on one of the apps presented above, hybrid applications are a good option for those targeting as many smartphone users as possible. Even if applications designed for specific operating systems are quite popular, there are also many hybrid apps that work efficiently.
We invite you to discuss all the options available with our app developers in London. They will explain the processes behind the creation of each type of application and their costs so that you can decide which solution works best for you.
Applications and competitors
During the initial phases of the app development process, checking on the competition is essential to help your app stand out from other thousands like it. This is why our app developers in London could take some time just to check aspects such as the number of installs of similar applications, as this will determine if the app has users and how many. The ratings and reviews of apps used for the same purpose can also be good indicators on just how well they are received by users, while the history behind some of these companies can show if their apps have increased their popularity.
These are important parameters when having an application created, however, there are also others such as the marketing of the application which will lead to paid advertisements in order to attract clients. In this case, we can help you with Social Media Marketing (SMM) and other paid advertising solutions. We also invite you to watch our video:
