Frequently Asked Questions About Mobile App Development
If you’re thinking about creating a mobile app for your business or organization, you probably have lots of questions about the process. Fortunately, the mobile app experts at Spar Solutions have answers to your questions.
The Importance of Mobile Apps
The right mobile app can take your business to the next level. According to Simform, 91% of people use mobile apps at home, and 72% use mobile apps at work. Your business needs a mobile app to stay in front of your customers.
The key is to create an app that serves your business and your customers while standing out from the pack. (Statista tells us that there are 4.3 million iOS apps in the Apple App Store and more than 2.9 million Android apps in the Google Play Store.) It’s also important to have an app that performs as promised; a uSamp study found that 62% of users uninstall apps that crash, freeze, or exhibit other errors.
Mobile App Development FAQs
Here are some of the most common questions that companies ask about mobile app development.
What does Mobile App Development Require?
Mobile app development involves the creation of software applications that run on various types of mobile devices. To develop a mobile app, you need to contract with a firm that has experience with all types of mobile apps and employs a proven development approach.
Mobile app developers generate a detailed development plan, create a user-friendly interface, construct all necessary installable software bundles, and implement appropriate backend services to support the app. The app itself is rigorously tested throughout the development process.
What Are the Different Types of Mobile Apps You Can Develop?
Mobile apps can be developed for both Android and iOS phones and tablets. Consumers, employees, and vendors can target apps for use.
Can You Build Apps for Both iOS and Android?
At Spar Solutions, we build apps that support both iOS and Android platforms.
What Platform Should We Target to Launch Our Application: Android or iOS?
In years past, companies may have chosen to develop apps that support only a single platform. Today, both Android and iOS platforms have a significant market share, so most companies choose to develop apps that work on both platforms.
What is the Difference Between Cross-Platform and Native App Development?
There is a big difference between cross-platform and native app development. With native app development, separate apps are developed for the Android and iOS platforms. With cross-platform development, a single app works on both platforms.
Native app development employs the default development languages and IDEs for the Android and iOS environments. For Android apps, this usually involves Java/Kotlin with Android Studio. For iOS apps, this involves Objective C or Swift with Xcode.
Native apps typically function faultlessly on their designated platforms and rank highly in their respective app stores. Native app development, however, is more costly and time-consuming.
Well-developed cross-platform apps also function well but take less time and money to develop. Also, cross-platform apps update more easily than native apps.
We will work with you to determine whether cross-platform or native development is the right choice for your business.
Can You Work With Us if We Don’t Have a Fully Formed Idea for Our App?
The developers at Spar Solutions are used to working with companies whose app ideas are at different stages of development. We work with you to convert your ideas into fully functional mobile apps.
Will You Sign an NDA for the App You’re Developing?
Yes, we will sign NDAs while we are developing your mobile app. You can rely on us to keep your development private and out of the prying eyes of competitors.
Do I Need to Test My App?
Spar Solutions employs an experienced in-house testing team for all the apps we develop. This team works alongside the app developers to test apps at various stages of development.
You can supplement our in-house testing with your own testing, of course. You may be aware of more ways that users will interact with the app and thus provide even more rigorous testing scenarios.
Can an App connect to my existing systems/data store?
Yes, SPAR Solutions can develop apps that can connect to your existing systems or data store with Application Programming Interface (API). APIs built using any platform can be consumed in App to connect and read/write data from your datastore.
Should I have a visual (wireframe) ready for my App?
If you have your web designer and have visuals ready, our development team can work with you to build the app. If you just have an idea or concept, the SPAR Solutions team is happy to help you visualize and convert your ideas and concepts into digital reality.
Who will own the intellectual property rights to my App?
As it’s your idea, concept, and your business you own the rights of the App, SPAR team will just provide consultation and help you in building the App for your customers.
