People still were unaware of any such mobile application & development processes till 2010. But since the craze of smartphones took place, people started considering application development for their business. And why shouldn’t they? Technology never stops defining what people can do with the use of cell phones. By the end of 2019, the total number of mobile users is nearly 4 billion & growing every day, which means you will be missing all these users if your business lacks a mobile application.
Mobile app development is not an easy task. Most of the app development companies are lacking several factors during their development processes, including app’s performance, bug fixes & updates. Ensuring clients with fantastic user experience & Serving them the most advanced mobile applications is what most of the software companies are concerned about. As the use of mobile phones keeps growing, the demand for mobile apps is increasing. We, at Podamibe Nepal, develop an innovative and useful mobile application that will boost your business to success.
What is Mobile App Development?
Mobile app development is a process of developing an application that runs on mobile devices like Android, Tablets & iOS. Since the first beginning of mobile platforms, people are getting more and more dragged towards cell phones. Online marketers and businesses can take considerable benefits from this. Some mobile applications come Pre-installed with the devices where some users install themselves. Large Companies like Apple & Samsung provide their application stores for their products like Galaxy Store & Apple Store for downloading apps.
In these cases developing a user-friendly mobile application can generate more revenue, more sales and increase value. Mobile app development in Nepal is also as crucial as developing websites if business owners want to grow business from every sector & every possible way.
Why Mobile App Development?
Almost 90% of internet users use a mobile phone to access the internet. Why not take advantage of that with an amazing mobile application? Developing a mobile app according to a business need and which benefits is what’s most important. Any mobile application can do tasks, but will it sell what matters the most. Working with professionals can only get you what you want. We, at Podamibe, are one of the best Mobile app development service provider in Nepal.
Types of Mobile Applications To Develop
We see most of the people running mobile devices with operating systems Android, iOS or Windows. Different mobile applications serve a different purpose. An Application might include gaming apps, news apps, job portal apps, music player apps, video player apps and much more. But to classify mobile app development, we categorize them in 3 groups: Native Apps, Hybrid Apps & Web Apps.
We develop a native application specifically 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 we develop a Native app for Android, it won’t work in iOS and vice-versa. Programming languages used for the development of native applications include .NET(c#) for windows, Objective-C & Swift for iOS and Java & ADT for Android.
These applications 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 mobile application is that it has to be developed only once for both mobile systems. It saves time and money. We develop a native app for each platform individually.
But, a native application often has a better user interface because it is explicitly developed 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 needs to know what they want; otherwise, the application might be nothing but useless.
Frameworks that help to build high-end hybrid applications are among others Xamarin, PhoneGap en Titanium.
iOS or iPhone OS development is a process of creating an application that runs on an iOS device. An iOS device maybe either Macbook, iPhone or iPod. iOS is completely created and maintained by Apple Inc. and it known for its world-class security. iOS is the second most used mobile OS after Android. iOS apps are written in C, C++, Objective-C or Swift. Apple releases a major version of iOS every year. The latest version of iOS was released on 19 September 2019 and is named iOS 13.
App Store Optimization (ASO)
After successful completion of mobile app development, what one seeks is ASO.
What is ASO?
ASO (App Store Optimization) is Just like SEO (Search Engine Optimization) that we perform for the increasing rank of websites, but with ASO, we can increase the rank of mobile applications and get more downloads, better application reviews, and better rankings. More the ASO, the 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 every day.
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 areas:
- App Name, Title & URL Structure
- App Keywords
- App Screenshots & Thumbnails
- App Ratings & Reviews
- App Downloads
- Deep linking
- Indexation & CTR
ASO Vs SEO
An ASO Expert is someone who optimizes an application for app stores and play store for Leads, CTR, Conversion, Downloads, Ratings, Reviews, Reach, Impressions and an overall score of an application.
What are the benefits of ASO?
Most people download an application by searching for a specific keyword in the app stores. Your application will get boosted if you can target the right audience. People now and then mention optimizing an app store is better than most of the marketing strategies. Some benefits of app store optimization include:
- Improve your visibility
- Organic Downloads
- Targets relevant audience
- Increased Revenue
- Discover base worldwide
- Stand out in the crowd
Mobile App Testing:
Mobile App Development is just not always enough. An application should be compatible with all the devices of its category. For this app, system testing strategies need 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. We simulate field testing after the successful development of an app.
Some of the most popular emulators used in mobile testing applications are:
Google Android Emulator:
It’s an Android emulator that runs on Windows PC. It runs 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.
Official Android SDK Emulator:
Officially released by Android, it consists of a full impression of the hardware & software features of a mobile device.
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 the development of websites for an iPhone. iPhoney only runs on OS 10.4.7 or later and none before that.
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 the end of life by the end of 2014, but still, many alternatives to it are found running.
