Native App Development

We specialise in native app development

Native App Development

We’ve built successful & award-winning native applications for tablet, phone and wearable devices. We’ve developed native apps for all kinds of handsets on iOS, Android & Windows-powered devices.

What is a Native App?

A native mobile application is a piece of software built for a mobile or tablet device. A native app is built using the tools and language provided by the platform. For Android this is Kotlin (used to be Java) and for iOS (iPhone and iPad) the native language is Swift (used to be ObjectiveC).

Building an app using the tools, languages and APIs provided by the platform ensures that your app is of the highest quality and customers enjoyed the highest standard of User Experience (UX). The richest of animations, access to all the device’s functionality & features, and easy debugging during the development process, are all possible when building native mobile applications.

We have written further about this subject on our blog.

iPhone or Android

Do I really need an Apple iOS app and a Google Android app, surely one platform will be enough?

Android (the Google-built operating system) is on the majority of smartphones worldwide but the app market for iOS (Apple’s operating system for iPhone, iPad & Apple Watch) is almost as large as the Android market. As of January 2017, there were 3.5 million Android apps & 2.2 million iOS apps.

Therefore, it's vital for organisations to be able to offer both iOS and Android apps as part of their market offering.
