The answer to this depends on a few different factors such as your timeline, budget and required features.
— A Native app is an app that is developed for a specific platform, for example Android.
— A Hybrid app is an app that has been developed to work on both the web and mobile.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both. See our blogpost on mobile apps to find out more.
There are many advantages of investing in a good mobile app for your users. The simple fact is mobile usage has increased over 200% over the last five years, with over 50% of users accessing the internet through their mobile or tablet.
This is entirely dependent on what app you are creating and your intended audience. We offer a variety of solutions, from web to native to cross-platform so that we have the flexibility to deliver application on any platform.
On average, apps can take anywhere between three and nine months to develop, depending on the complexity of the app and structure of your project.
Every project has a project manager that will work with you throughout the process to ensure you are kept informed.
Each week you will receive an email (or any other preferred format for communication) summary of the weeks progress, including what work was done, any issues that were faced and what is planned for the next week.
We believe keeping our clients in the loop is crucial to a successful project.
First we will speak to you to understand what you want from your app and what features you want included. Once we have a good understanding of your requirements, we will plan out what work is needed to complete the project.
As soon as the work is broken down, the project manager will get in touch with a detailed roadmap, which will explain how long everything will take and at what point they will be done. Once you have reviewed and accepted the roadmap, development will start.
We work with the Agile methodology here at Netshell, which means you will have constant progress updates and will have many opportunities throughout the project to demo the apps newest features to ensure you are happy with the progress being made. This also enables us to capture any issues or changes early, preventing any unexpected project delays.
Yes! We have detailed knowledge of what is required when pushing a new app to the relevant stores and will handle the upload and any subsequent communication from the app providers. You will be notified when the app is uploaded and when the app goes live on the stores.In our experience, this is no more than 1 week after the original upload.
However, if you have your own development team who would normally manage any app releases, we can work with the relevant team members to ensure you can handle this internally.
As part of our app development package we offer a warranty of XX months. During this time if any bugs or technology updates affect your app we will immediately rectify them and re-upload to the store. We also offer a support and maintenance package for a monthly fee that will cover...
Yes! All code created for your project will be owned by yourselves.
There are many advantages to out-sourcing your app development, but ultimately the decision comes down to a combination of resource availability, long-term business strategy, costs and several other factors. Some of the advantages include;
— Less risk: You can be comfortable knowing that you have some of the top developers working on your app, as well as a fully trained Project Manager that will be dedicated to your project, highlighting any issues before they turn into risks.
— Lower cost: While there is a higher upfront cost to out-source your development, depending on your in-house facilities you could actually be saving yourself money as you will not need to worry about things such as licensing, infrastructure costs and staff costs.
— Options: The team here at Netshell have a combined experience of over 15 years developing apps, meaning we have extensive knowledge of mobile app features and known issues that may effect your project.
— Time management: By out-sourcing your development you are freeing up your time, meaning you have more resource to work on other projects internally.
