Mobile application development is the set of processes and procedures involved in writing software for small, wireless computing devices.

Just like Web application development, mobile application development has its roots in more traditional software development. One critical difference, however, is that Mobile apps are often written by app development companies like GoodCore Software (See: www.goodcore.co.uk/services/mobile-app-development) to take complete advantage of the unique features a particular mobile device offers. For instance, a gaming app might be written to take advantage of the iPhone's accelerometer or a mobile health app might be written to take advantage of a smartwatch's temperature sensor.

In the early years of mobile apps, the only way to ensure an app had optimum performance on any given device was to develop the app natively for a particular device. This meant that at a very low level, new code had to be written specifically for each particular device's processor. Today, a majority of mobile application development efforts focus on building apps that are device-agnostic.

Native mobile apps vs. progressive web apps

In past years, if an app needed to be cross-platform and run on multiple operating systems, there was little -- if any -- code that could be re-used from the initial development project. Essentially, each device required its own mobile app development project with its own code base. Modern cross-platform tools use common languages such as C# and JavaScript to share code across projects; more importantly, they integrate well with application lifecycle management tools, such as Jenkins. This allows developers to use a single code base for Apple iOS, Google Android and progressive web apps (PWAs). A progressive web app is a website that looks and behaves as if it is a mobile app.

PWAs are built to take advantage of native mobile device features, without requiring the end user to visit an app store, make a purchase and download software locally. Instead, a PWA can be located with a search engine query and accessed immediately through a browser, thereby eliminating the need for e-commerce merchants to develop native apps for multiple mobile operating systems. Just like YouTube videos, PWA content is downloaded progressively, which provides the end user with a better user experience than a traditional website that uses responsive design. Progressive web apps may also be referred to as instant mobile apps.

There is no denying that the world has become mobile and not looking back.

We are in the digital age and if your business does not have a mobile app, it means you are lagging behind your competitors. You may miss a huge opportunity to attract potential clients no matter how far away they are. Having a website doesn't give you the edge over your competitors. Ensuring you have the right strategies for online marketing.

There are three types of mobile apps:


Hybrid APPS

Mobile web applications

Native Applications:

Native app developed for use on a specific platform or device. Such applications are developed exclusively for the same mobile operating system, so they are "native" to a specific platform or device.

Local mobile apps provide faster performance and a higher level of reliability. Local apps are clearly accessible from their kind of app stores and have a clear tendency to reach target customers.

Mobile Web Apps:

Web applications are not really apps, they are real websites that look and feel like native apps in many ways, but they are not implemented. Web applications use the browser to execute and are usually written in HTML 5, JavaScript, and CSS. These programs run in the web browser of the mobile device.

Web applications are easy to manage as they have a common code base across multiple mobile platforms.

Hybrid Applications:

The hybrid app combines elements of web and native applications. They are built using multi-platform web technologies. The so-called hybrid apps are basically website apps disguised as native wrappers. Apps have common advantages of native and web mobile applications.

Hybrid multi-platform applications are fast and easy to develop. The single-code base for all platforms ensures low-cost management and smooth updates.
