At Hyperlink InfoSystem, we know that in the development of mobile applications for any field, it is necessary to comply with a series of high standards that provide customers and users with a safe and satisfactory experience. For this, we always recommend the development of native mobile applications, with official Apple and Google tools and with specialized developers in each of these platforms.
But the world is not perfect and sometimes, for some reason, we use multiplatform development tools that allow us to create an application for both platforms. These types of mobile applications are called hybrids.
Here are some of the best-known technologies for developing hybrid mobile applications.
One of the main features that differentiate this technology from others is that it has access to the Adobe Creative Cloud compilation service in the cloud. On the other hand, PhoneGap is in charge of integrating into the mobile operating system and providing access to services.
Importantly, it is a technology for creating simple applications, on controlled devices and with affordable performance.
This technology has cloud services and facilitates the development of applications interconnected with the software and hardware, thus allowing the use of the microphone, the camera, or even the GPS.
Currently, Angular is one of the most used frameworks due to the support of Google making it a very powerful, safe, and reliable technology that has the support of a large community.
It is a tool that facilitates the creation of modern applications such as Single Page applications. In this way, it guarantees a much faster interaction since all web development is loaded in the client's own browser.
Angular provides flexibility, versatility and above all a speed in development since it allows creating reusable and easy-to-use modules. Finally, it is also important to note that thanks to the framework used by this tool, it is possible to develop fast applications compared to others made with other tools.
The main advantage that this tool offers is that it allows the application of multiple devices from a single development and therefore from a single source code. This reduces the delivery time of applications on multiple platforms, thus improving productivity, application profitability and the user experience.
Ionic, was created using the previously discussed Angular technology as a base. Even so, currently, this technology provides support for the development of mobile applications relying on the main frameworks. Finally, it is also important to note that Iconic facilitates software maintenance by simplifying and reducing cost.
Despite the fact that Framework 7 is not one of the best-known technologies, it has the advantage that it is an independent tool and therefore, there are no external dependencies on frameworks.
Finally, it is important to comment that its design section is similar to the Ionic technology since it provides a design adjusted to those established by the iOS and Android design depending on which platform it is run for, allowing a good user interface.
Benefits of Mobile App Development
Building Your Brand
A mobile application can help increase your brand awareness and image. A simple app in the app store that is then installed on a device can help increase visibility. Once the app is installed, the person will see your icon repeatedly when using their smartphone - even if they scroll past it to use another app. Apps also allow a bespoke user interface with some effects that are not possible on a website.
Engage With Your Customers
Apps can help you with customer loyalty. For retail and consumer stores, a loyalty program is an example of a feature a mobile app can provide. This can be entirely digital and can help encourage repeat purchases or encourage users to try something different. Messaging is another example of how you can get in touch with customers - and of course how they can get in touch with your company.
Personalization of The Offer
Mobile apps enable detailed personalization. This can enable direct marketing tailored to the individual needs of the user. This can be achieved through in-app personalization, whereby suitable push notifications can also be used. In addition, analytics can be created to determine which parts of your app are used the most and to facilitate future decisions.
