App development

Maximise business efficiency, gather data and engage users with a customer-focused app.

Smartphone and tablet apps are a great way to give your customers a reason to interact with your brand and get to know your business. They’re also useful in engaging users, gathering data and even making some money. We use PhoneGap to develop our apps, which supports all the leading mobile platforms - iOS, Android and Windows.

We’ll also set up a web service so you can regularly update the information in your app and have it updated for your users. Information can be stored offline, ready to update the app once your users have an internet connection. This is ideal for sending out data such as product lists, catalogues and statistics, which can then be downloaded and stored locally.

To create a great user experience your apps can also be designed to work seamlessly with third party sources, like Google Maps.

PhoneGap

PhoneGap

PhoneGap allows for easy app creation across web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. PhoneGap is an open source framework, which enables you to create mobile apps using standardised web APIs for the most important platforms including iOS, Android and Windows.

User experience

User experience

Our user experience designers concentrate on just that – user experience. It is their job to put themselves in the shoes of the consumers and make their journeys as easy and effective as possible. Apps are created to make a customer’s journey more convenient and therefore our UX designers are essential to the app project and success. 

GUI design

GUI design

A GUI (Geographical User Interface) uses a combination of technologies and devices to provide a platform that the user can interact with. Designing the visual composition and chronological behavior of a GUI is an important part of app programming in the area of human-computer interaction. Its goal is to enhance the efficiency and ease of use for the underlying logical design of a stored program, a design discipline known as usability. Methods of user-centred design are used to ensure that the visual language introduced in the design is well-tailored to the tasks it was created to undertake.

Integration

Integration

Application Integration forms a key part in the process of your app creation, migrating your business data over to your application program. We created the Nottingham Conferences Walking Guide app for the University of Nottingham’s event management business. The app was developed using PhoneGap using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. We then compiled it into native apps for iOS, Windows Mobile and Android, and made it available in the Google Play store and the Apple app store for free, so that the University of Nottingham’s conference delegates were able to simply download a link.

Native apps

Native apps

We can creative native apps coded in specific programming language, allowing your app to interact with operating system features and software installed on certain platforms and devices. Native apps provide fast performance and the cross-platform functionality ensures apps reach a wide audience.
