Mobile development

Mobile app development refers to creating applications and other software specific to mobile devices, like smartphones, smart TVs and smart watches. Netguru builds mobile applications on all major platforms, including iOS and Android. Mobile development seeks to optimize functionality and user experience on mobile devices. On Netguru blog we cover mobile development topics, including Native Apps, Swift, Kotlin, React Native and Flutter.

To say that mobile development is the future would be an understatement – it also dominates the present. Mobile devices (think smartphones) have overtaken desktop machines (such as laptops and old-school workstations) in Internet use back in 2016, and the trend has only progressed since then. Plainly speaking, if your website or product is not usable on mobile devices, you are set to lose over 50% of your potential customers right off the bat.

In 2016, React Native was one of the rising technologies giving a great promise to save on development time but also carrying some risks. No one really knew in which direction it would go, whether it would last or become forgotten. We decided to take a bet and invest in the research on React Native. Today, we know it paid off, and React Native is here to stay. Facebook’s framework has been leveraged by big players such as Tesla, Instagram, and Airbnb. Airbnb has recently shared their experience with RN on their blog. After having delivered 20 projects and with 15 RN developers on board, we want to share what happened over the past 18 months of our journey with this technology.

The last 20% of developing an Android mobile app is 80% of the work. That is what the Pareto principle tells us. This last 20% is making the app store page so beautiful that users who find it install your app. That’s where app store optimisation comes in. Using research on how users navigate through app stores, you can improve download rate of your app drastically. This process is called App Store Optimisation, or ASO for short.

Currently, security is one of the hottest topics in IT. Users, companies, and legislators are taking the subject of data security and privacy more and more seriously. This trend also applies to mobile applications due to their proximity to the user. Frequency of use and convenience mean that mobile apps often store important private data. iOS, due to its closed system and restrictions imposed by Apple, is considered one of the most secure mobile operating systems. This does not mean, however, that you can neglect security when developing an iOS application.

For years, Java has been the standard for developing Android apps. In 2011, JetBrains presented Kotlin, a new statically-typed language running on Java Virtual Machine. In 2017, during Google I/O, Kotlin was announced as an official language for Android development. As Kotlin is a modern programming language with powerful features, it gained popularity among Android developers. It was placed second on the list of the most loved programming languages in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018.

In May 2017, the Android team at Google announced first-class support for Kotlin, a statically typed programming language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Kotlin is built by JetBrains, who (it is worth noting) is also responsible for developing the JetBrains IntelliJ Java IDE, which Google’s own Android Studio is based on.

A few years back, hybrid apps built with Ionic, Cordova or PhoneGap were a perfect and cost-effective alternative to native development. However, with the technology moving forward, they might not meet users’ expectations anymore. React Native is a good alternative that can save your app from going under.
