Native iOS and Android

Ultimate flexibility and speed on phone and tablet

We choose the best technology for the job; some allow for faster development for simpler tasks, or we can work natively if the required functionality demands it.

If you need an iOS or Android app developed, we can help.
Please contact us to talk to us about it; advice is free!

Content Managed Apps

Simple good looking apps where you have a control panel to update stories, pages, calendar items and videos. A limited set of functionality, but what they do, they do very well and professionally. Extremely quick development time.

You can include:

  • Articles: Good for adding news items, general information about your business, special offers.
  • Photo Galleries: Add pictures of your business, your latest products and your star employees.
  • Video Galleries: Add videos of your latest products and how to use them.
  • Forms: Contact us forms, feedback, questionnaires and competitions
  • Calendar: Great for event diaries
  • Map: Have a ‘find us’ section of your app.
  • Notifications: Send popup messages to your users for special promotions

  • Location
  • Networks
  • Simple integration to JSON services

Xamarin Apps

Cross platform apps built using Microsoft and Xamarin technology; more flexible still than phonegap apps and higher performance. Build a common set of business rules, and a separate user interface to suit the best strengths of each platform. Longer development time.

Excellent for:

  • Integration with your business systems – we can write webservices for your databases and in-house applications that your apps can talk to.
  • Supports backend processes

Excellent for:

  • Totally bespoke requirements.
  • High speed applications where response time is critical.
  • Accessing low-level functionality on the device – e.g. control of phone calls and sending texts directly from the phone.
