With a mobile app, you will be investing in a tool perfectly adapted to the mobile environment. Thus, you can have direct communication with users to inform them of any news, discounts or promotions. This direct communication channel will also help you to manage doubts and solve problems that may arise.
Hyperlink InfoSystem is a top mobile app development agency in Rhode Island that focuses on creating all forms of apps such as messaging apps, ecommerce apps, social media apps, enterprise apps, on-demand apps and all other forms. We can help you with an app to gain more visibility on the internet.
Types of Mobile Apps
When it comes to developing a mobile app for Android or iOS, programmers have a choice. You can develop a separate app for both systems or you can use the advantages of a web-based app. Both variants offer different advantages and disadvantages. The program that creates the app is also important.
A web app is a specially programmed website. This can be called up on any device with a browser and adapts to the environment. Programmers and companies only have to develop an app once, but it still works on almost every device. This means that app development costs can be massively reduced. At the same time, more users who can use the app and its functions are reached. A further cost reduction arises from the non-inclusion of the app in Play Store and App Store. However, sales and marketing cost extra.
In order to develop web apps, programmers need knowledge of HTML5 and other web technologies. However, HTML5 has the advantage of offline storage. This means that an app that has already been loaded can also be used without an internet connection. Web apps are also found with a Google search and can be used directly without additional installation. A shortcut on the home screen as a bookmark replaces the conventional app icon.
While web apps can be published quickly, there are some drawbacks. Certain hardware functions cannot be used and access to sensors is restricted. In addition, push notifications can only be implemented to a limited extent. Web apps reach their limits with larger calculations, high storage space requirements or the display of 3D.
Native apps are programmed for exactly one operating system. It only works on a few devices and must be adapted for every other OS. The cost of a native app is a bit higher, especially if Android and iOS are to be supported.
The advantage of native apps lies in their performance. Complex tasks and high-performance processes are processed quickly. In addition, all sensors and hardware elements can be integrated into the app. Native apps are more suitable when a lot of data is stored and processed, as there is no memory limit. If the app convinces many users, the reviews in the app stores can generate new users.
Why You Should Continue To Test Your Apps
Errors and slow performance are the main reasons apps get deleted. 62% of users uninstall an app when they experience crashes or bugs. That is why we at Hyperlink InfoSystem attach great importance to a great UX design and high-quality technical implementation.
Digital products are constantly popping up in the market and the mobile experience is constantly evolving. If your app doesn't evolve with the market, it will quickly become out of date.
Hyperlink InfoSystem offers you a full technical review of your app to make sure it works well and works flawlessly on newer devices and operating systems. As a result, we provide you with the status of your app - from both a technical and a user perspective.
We conduct exploratory functional tests on the most widely used iOS and Android devices. All testing is done on real hardware devices as compatibility testing is essential with such a wide variety on the market.
In addition, we are closely following the release presentations of major manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei, HTC and Apple. When new devices from these companies hit the market, we analyze the market share potential and, if necessary, pre-order new devices to ensure that we test your applications on devices before they are available to users.
Analysis of The App Reviews
Since app reviews and ratings are an important factor in whether or not users download your app, an analysis of the app reviews is necessary. When the analysis is complete, the results are compared with other applications in the same category.
A full app functionality review and app review analysis. The review includes:
- Test result analysis with information about tested devices, operating system and operating system versions
- List of recommended improvements for each platform
- App review and app rating benchmark analysis
At Hyperlink InfoSystem, we never see a project as complete. Changes will continue in the future, and new platforms, operating systems and devices will continue to follow. We offer proactive monitoring as part of our testing and review process to take into account market changes and further improve the quality and usability of your app.
