Develop Android, IoS, Hybrid Apps
Android App Development
However, when an inexperienced developer approaches developing apps that use this operating system, Android’s great flexibility can also be a disadvantage. In fact, such an app must meet numerous requirements to adapt, without too many bugs or risks of crashes, to significantly different devices.
Developing iOS Apps
With a team of expert iOS developers, we guide you through all stages of app development, from idea to architecture to actual development using advanced algorithms.
To ensure maximum usability and make your app engaging, we develop applications with eye-catching graphics, animations, touch movements that contribute to excellent navigability.
Although the iOS app market is significantly smaller than Android’s, it is much more profitable and you could secure a spot in this market to intercept a typically high-spending user who is willing to pay for an inspiring product. For this reason, ROI could be higher, not to mention the authority that a representation in the App Store could confer on the company.
It’s also worth noting that entering the App Store is not a walk in the park. In fact, developers must adhere to limiting restrictions and strict requirements for attractive graphics, maximum speed, almost inviolable security systems, absence of bugs, as well as uniqueness and originality.
These limits are also the secret to Apple’s success, only if you are the best you can be published in the App Store.
Hybrid App Development
If developed with expertise and competence, hybrid apps are a powerful tool because they are scalable, have enviable performance, and, above all, can run on all operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, and all browsers.
If you don’t need a native app, the hybrid app is the best solution because it is cheaper to develop and works everywhere. This means that maintenance costs are also lower because interventions are easier and faster.
It is important to emphasize that hybrid apps can present technical difficulties that can only be successfully overcome by experienced developers.
For example, the user interface and user experience may be limited and less impactful, and the full potential of each platform cannot be exploited. Transitions may also occur when moving from one page to another.
This is a third alternative solution compared to native apps and cross-platform hybrid ones, as web applications exclusively use web technologies but have a mobile app approach.
A subcategory of web-apps is represented by PWAs (Progressive Web Apps), web applications that, like a website, open through a browser and do not need to be downloaded from any app store. Unlike a normal website, however, PWAs have an interface and level of interactivity that are entirely similar to native apps.
This solution may be suitable for you if you need to develop an app that is not too complex in its functionality and at the same time do not have the sufficient budget for a native app, or if you do not want to experience the limitations and restrictions of mobile app stores. However, you should be aware that you will have to accept other compromises, such as the need to always be connected to a network and the limited chances of integration with the smartphone operating system, such as push notifications, updates, and background operation.
Why develop an app for your company?
For a company that wants to grow even more, launching into the world of Apps is now almost a mandatory step: the App market sees increasingly high figures and its growth shows no signs of slowing down.
As we spend more and more time in front of our smartphones, providing users with tools that they are used to using and even love to use can be a real competitive advantage, even for businesses that are seemingly less inclined towards such technological updates. In fact, in these cases, the novelty and originality of unexpected ideas can be a winning weapon.
Not to mention the fact that in a business environment, for example, the development of an app can contribute to optimizing various work phases and dynamics, transferring strategic processes directly into the hands of employees who will be the main users.
The benefits of developing a company app can be multiple and involve even external but vital aspects, such as customer acquisition and loyalty. In fact, companies with an app can:
- communicate more easily with customers without additional costs and time or space constraints;
- acquire new customers using the app as a direct tool, instead of outsourcing the process to third-party platforms;
- gain a competitive advantage over all competitor companies that do not have a company app;
- create a community of users loyal to the brand, who can recommend the app through word of mouth;
- use the app for brand awareness without burning budget on expensive advertising campaigns;
- track user behavior in a detailed way and obtain valuable information for continuous performance improvement.
There is no specific method, it all depends on the complexity of the project, the type of app chosen by the client following the expert suggestions of the development team, and the objectives.
Generally, a process consisting of 5 precise and linear phases is followed:
- Technical-functional analysis
- Designing the idea in terms of business objectives, technologies to be adopted, and development timelines
It is impossible to determine the cost of developing an app without knowing fundamental information that influences the development costs, such as the time frame the team has, the quality of the technologies adopted, the features the app must have, the costs of launching and potentially publishing on stores, and maintenance expenses.
Generally, among the types of apps to choose from, native apps are the most expensive compared to hybrid or web apps, with the latter being the least expensive.

As mentioned before, there is no standard answer, it depends on several factors: technologies, functionalities, complexity. Developing an app is never a quick thing, it can take from 18 weeks to several months.
It depends on multiple variables such as the business objectives, the target audience for the app, the budget available, and the deadlines that need to be met. In any case, each type of app has its advantages and disadvantages, but these are only relevant when compared to your specific needs.
In any case, for each type of app there are advantages and disadvantages that are only relevant if compared to your specific needs.
