APP DEVELOPMENT

Description

Expedite Informatics expertise in mobile app development for mobile devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. Experts also consider a long array of screen sizes, hardware specifications, and configurations because of intense competition in mobile software and changes within each of the platforms.

Our experts know: understandable, user-friendly interface is key of mobile app so considers users’ limited attention, minimize keystrokes, and be task-oriented with a minimum set of functions. Also Mobile UIs, or front-ends, rely on mobile back-ends to support access to enterprise systems. The mobile back-end facilitates data routing, security, authentication, authorization, working off-line, and service orchestration. This functionality is supported by a mix of middleware components including mobile app server, mobile backend as a service (MBaaS), and service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure.

Experts trained on the platform needed to develop, deploy and manage mobile app are made from many components and tools which allow a developer to write, test and deploy applications into the target platform environment. Criteria for selecting a development platform usually contains the target mobile platforms, existing infrastructure and development skills.

When targeting more than one platform with cross-platform development it is also important to consider the impact of the tool on the user experience. Performance is another important criteria, as research on mobile apps indicates a strong correlation between application performance and user satisfaction. Along with performance and other criteria, the availability of the technology and the project’s requirement may drive the development between native and cross-platform environments. To aid the choice between native and cross-platform environments, some guidelines and benchmarks have been published. Typically, cross-platform environments are reusable across multiple platforms, leveraging a native container while using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for the user interface. In contrast, native environments are targeted at one platform for each of those environments. For example, Android development occurs in the Eclipse IDE using Android Developer Tools (ADT) plugins, Apple iOS development occurs using Xcode IDE with Objective-C and/or Swift, Windows and BlackBerry each have their own development environments.
