Applications that are functional

Why Use Mobile or Web APPs?

Applications allow for a layer of interactibility and automation not possible otherwise. They can be used to give site administrators better ability to interact with their users, or better automate processes such as receiving support tickets and selling products. Most importantly, applications can make your site more engaging. With well placed interactive content, you can better communicate to your audience what they need to know while making the information more memorable.

Types of Applications

Static

Static applications are applications that don’t need to adapt to information given to them. The user’s ability to interact with these applications is strictly scoped, but the interactions that can take place will usually be richer since there’s no need to anticipate a near endless variety of input. Some examples of static applications would be single-player games, or a calculator app.

Dynamic

A dynamic application is an application that needs to access and utilize ever changing sources of information. This means that users can manipulate the application, changing how the application works for all users. Prime examples of dynamic applications include social media platforms, online marketplaces, or blogs.

A good way of identifying whether or not an application is static or dynamic is if it needs a connection to the internet to function. For web applications, this means once the page is initially loaded it won’t need to access the internet after that point if it’s static. Similarly, static mobile applications don’t need the internet after installing.

Web + Mobile Application Development

Hybrid Apps and Progressive Web Apps (PWA) allow us to save you money and cut down on development time by eliminating the need to develop separate native applications iOS, Android and the Web applications.

Progressive Web Apps

PWAs allow us to use the latest web technologies to develop apps that install like native apps. They look and work just like native apps on all devices without the need to develop separate apps for each platform. Your app can work on PC, Mac, iOS, Android and on the Web. We can even publish and sell your PWA app on the Google Play store and Microsoft Store.

PWAs have access to a lot of device features like cameras, microphone, GPS, etc. Furthermore, your users can still use your app while they are offline then re-sync with the server when a connection is available. PWAs are ideal for Internet of Things (IOT) because they allow your app to communicate with Bluetooth, USB and NFC devices. The possibilities are endless.

Another advantage for PWAs is the ease of updating the code and content since there is no need to wait for each app store to review and approve your app each time. With PWAs we update one codebase and all platforms are updated at the same time.

Hybrid Apps

A Hybrid App is compiled to the native platform. With one code base we can develop for iOS, Android and Web. The advantage for Hybrid Apps is you can deploy your app to any app store and make use of all the phone or tablet’s native capabilities.

Fast, Standardized Application DEV

Here at webmarkets, we build single-page web applications. Single-page web applications are applications that only need initial page load to retrieve the code that they need to work. This leads to near-instant responsiveness, as the only thing limiting the load time of your content is the application itself. Additionally, any mobile alternatives of a single-page application will easily interact with the data needed to run both, cutting down on development time needed to standardize the user experience between a mobile and web application.

Television APPs

Need to put an App on the big screen? We can develop apps for Roku, Fire TV and Raspberry Pi. This is great for churches that want to allow anyone to view their services, business that want to display information in their lobby, restaurant menus and more.

Application Prototyping

A prototype is used to gain agreement on what features are in and out of scope, to generate support or investment for the project, to test theories and ideas regarding layout and structure of the website, determine priorities and generate user/client feedback through usability testing. A prototype streamlines development and provides developers with concrete requirements instead of guesses. Therefore, saving time/money. There are two types of prototypes hi-fi and low-fi: A hi-fi prototype adds helps designers by finalizing the design of the site e.g., colors, fonts and graphics. This is added onto the low-fi which defines scope, features and layout structure.
