Mobile Apps



If you have a new idea for a mobile smartphone or tablet app or you would like to mobilise part of your business a custom mobile app may be the solution for you.

Mobile Apps

Mobile apps have taken the world by storm in recent years. Brought to us first by Steve Jobs and Apple with the iphone, today if your phone doesn't have apps then it is considered out of date. Mobile apps are developed on computers like traditional software. They are then deployed to mobile devices either directly via a computer, through an install file downloaded from the web or more commonly via a mobile app store which is a service on a smartphone for viewing and downloading apps. Startupsmith can develop mobile apps for your ideas or business. We are specialists in helping businesses with mobilising their existing systems.

Platforms

There are multiple platforms for mobile applications. The two most common are iOS (Apple) and Android (Google). Startupsmith can support and develop mobile apps for both the iOS and Android platforms. We can also develop for the Windows mobile platform, however this isn't so commonly used and we generally don't recommend it.

If you require an app that targets multiple platforms (known as being cross platform) Startupsmith can develop your app so that it can be used on both iOS and Android.

Devices

With the introduction of tablet computers as well as the many different android devices there is now a vast range of mobile devices. In addition to the platform type the other concern with devices is the different screen sizes. For devices like tablet computers there may be more features or information shown on the screen compared with an app running on a smartphone device.

Startupsmith can help you develop a mobile app and support the device of your choice or multiple devices.

Technology

To acheive cross platform development Startupsmith uses the Xamarin mobile development platform. This platform enables sharing of code between platforms by using a single development language which is called C#. Xamarin is a very popular technology platform used by thousands of developers around the world.
