Types of Mobile Applications We Develop
We see most of the people running mobile devices with operating system Android, iOS or Windows. Different mobile applications serve different purpose. Application might include gaming apps, news apps, job portal apps, music player apps, video player apps and much more. But to classify application we categorize them in 3 groups: Native Apps, Hybrid Apps & Web Apps.
A native application is specifically developed for either the iPhone/iPad or Android devices. For native iOS development, we use the Software Development Kit (SDK) offered by Apple. Google has developed its own Android Software Development Kit that enables us to create amazing Android applications. If a Native application is developed for Android, it won’t work in iOS and vice-versa. Programming languages used for development of native applications include .NET(c#) for windows, Objective-C & Swift for iOS and Java & ADT for Android.
These application need to be updated according to the device version to make them compatible otherwise incompatibility issues might lead to application crash and not working at all as well. The official distributors of these applications are: Apple iTunes, Google Play Store, Windows App Store & Amazon App Store
Mobile Web Applications:
What is the best solution?
The advantage of a hybrid application is that it has to be developed only once for both mobile systems. It saves time and money. The native application must be developed for each system individually.
But, a native application often has a better user interface because it is developed specifically for one system. It also is usually more compatible, which reduces the chance of some part of the application failing. During mobile app development one need to know what they really want otherwise the application might be nothing but useless.
Frameworks that help to build great hybrid applications are among others Xamarin, PhoneGap en Titanium.
App Store Optimization (ASO)
After a successful completion of mobile app development what brings benefit is doing ASO. ASO (App Store Optimization) is Just like SEO (Search Engine Optimization) that we perform for increasing rank of websites but with ASO we can increase rank of mobile applications and get more downloads, better application reviews and better rankings. More the ASO, better the chances of getting your application across the world. You can also say it’s like marketing of mobile application or Mobile App SEO to get more downloads and reach out in the globe. According to Statista almost 300 billion apps were downloaded in 2018 and this number is growing everyday.
ASO (App Store Optimization) techniques are not much different than SEO. Some of the traditional SEO tactics are even applicable in ASO for optimizing mobile applications. The most common and essential ASO techniques that will get your application more visibility gain are as:
- App Name, Title & URL Structure
- App Keywords
- App Screenshots & Thumbnails
- App Ratings & Reviews
- App Downloads
- Deep linking
- Indexation & CTR
Mobile App Testing:
Mobile App Development is just not always enough. An application should be compatible to all of the devices of its category. For this app testing strategies needs to be carried out. Mobile apps are tested using emulators during the time of development. Emulators are inexpensive and using emulators developers can test applications on mobiles even if they don’t have their physical access. A field testing is simulated after the development of an application.
Some of the most popular emulators used in testing mobile applications are:
1- Google Android Emulator:
It’s an Android emulator that runs on Windows PC. It run an android emulator on PC we don’t need a complete Android SDK. It’s easy to install and test android apps in Google Android Emulator.
2- Official Android SDK Emulator:

TestiPhone is a web browser based emulator for testing iPhone applications. TestiPhone works on Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 & Safari 2.
Powered by Safari, iPhoney gives a pixel accurate browsing environment. Rather than a simulator it’s a tool used in development of websites for an iPhone. iPhoney only runs on OS 10.4.7 or later and none before that.
5- mobione Studios:
Mobione is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) developed for windows that help developers to code, debug, test and deploy mobile applications to different devices such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry etc. Mobione was declared end of life by the end of 2014 but still many alternatives to it are found running.
