We are specialists in mobile app design, bringing new, creative and unique ideas to life that look great fulfilling our passion and flair. Our team at Wirefox love sitting down with a client and brainstorming unique ideas with creative futuristic apps. Technology and usability is so much more advanced compared to a few years ago and features in apps are now incredible and keep users even more engaged. It is so rewarding to see the initial brief turn into a developed app that people love to use.
We have worked with a vast amount of industries from informative apps, educational, games for children to apps for business and new start-ups.
What is the difference between a web application and a website? A website provides much more details whilst an app has less information so usability and functionality is improved. Web apps load in browsers and mobile apps are downloaded from app stores. Web apps also don’t take up storage on a user’s device.
Web applications are hosted on web browsers; they really are an extension of your website. They are not installed to a home screen; they are accessed via a web view. They are fairly easy to build, easy to maintain and an inexpensive option; however, they require internet, are much slower than native apps, and can’t take advantage of device services. Web apps are also much less interactive and immediate than native apps.
Native App/Mobile App Development
Native apps are bespoke, creative and unique and built for specific platforms. They are extremely fast and responsive, and distributed in app stores for browsers to download.
No internet connection is required and they users can interact with the app straight away. Overall, native apps offer a better user experience but are more expensive to develop.
Hybrid App Development
Hybrid applications are a mixture of native and web apps. A hybrid app consists of two parts: the first is the back-end code, and the second is a native shell that is downloadable and loads the code using a web view. By mixing the two it can be a cost effective option. The advantage is they don’t need a internet connection. The disadvantages are they are slower than native applications (this downplays these apps) and you cannot customize them.
The most important part of any of these applications is the user experience. If the user is not happy with their journey on the app, they will not come back and use it again and it defeats the purpose of an app. When we agree on client goals we brainstorm a expected customer journey of usage on the application to ensure they are happy with the experience and keep coming back to use it.
Design and usability are balanced to ensure the application is user friendly and used again and again.
What are Mobile Applications?
Technology is constantly evolving and so our developers must ensure we keep on top of the latest changes and technologies to ensure you get the best results on your applications. Mobile usage is higher than desk top usage and we all have services on our phones that make our lives so much easier.
A mobile application is software that is downloaded from an app store and runs on a mobile device. They range from tools, educational support, word searches, health, games, business services, banking, the list is endless.
It is a great way to create relationships and keep connected with customers, especially out of office hours. We always have our mobiles with us, so it gives a business the opportunity to provide services and connect directly with customers wherever they are and on the move.
How Applications can help your business?
1. Increase profits
There are so many promotions that can be carried out on applications via push notifications. Special offers, discount offers, two for one, loyalty cards (instead of sticking to the old point-collection card, making it possible for your customers to collect their rewards via your mobile app), VIP customer purchases and flash sale announcements.
It is another avenue to directly reach your customers and making it easier for them by making mobile payments and not having to come into the store.
2. Improve Customer Engagement
An application provides another avenue for your customers to make direct contact with you. You may have a help desk or chat box feature that your customers can connect with.
It is saving time for loyal repeat customers as they do not need to go through search engines to find your details.
They help with administration, exchanging of files, form filling and database updates that can then digitally be sent to you, saving on internal man hours.
Making appointments at restaurants, dentists, and hairdressers at a time that the customer finds convenient and not in specific business office hours hoping the phone is answered. This helps towards growing customer loyalty and staying closer to your customers.
3. Understand your customers
Mobile apps help you define your customers and target audiences. They collect a lot of information and you can use it to your advantage for more targeted campaigns. What gender uses your application more, what locations are more popular? What products/services do they engage with more? What functions do they use or not use?
Here we can monitor and adapt the application so we are improving it to get an even better user experience for the future.
