Artemest: eCommerce with augmented reality available in native iOS and Android apps

Artemest enables shoppers to browse and purchase handcrafted art by over 500 Italian artists. Users can also preview luxury furniture in their own homes using an augmented reality feature.

Artemest has grown exponentially as a result of product enhancements led by Netguru, particularly a full DevOps review of the web platform code and the development of iOS and Android apps.

The web and mobile apps have received positive feedback from their community of artists and shoppers. The app has also been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, and Elle.

Working with the Netguru Team was an amazing experience. They have been very responsive and flexible. We definitely increased the pace of development. We’re now releasing many more features than we used to before we started the co-operation with Netguru.

What is a native mobile app?

Native mobile applications are apps developed exclusively for a single platform – typically either iOS or Android.

If you’re building an application to release on an iPhone or another Apple device using its official development language, that means you’re building an iOS native app. The same applies when developing an app for any device with an Android OS.

Organizations, enterprises, and startups typically want to make their mobile apps available on both Android and iOS, the two mobile operating systems with a near 100% global market share. Some apps are available on less popular smartphone operating systems such as Windows, KaiOS (based on Linux) and HarmonyOS (Huawei).

Whether you choose to deploy on Android or iOS — or both — native mobile apps offer advantages in these areas:

  • Application speed and performance
  • Stability in maintenance and updates
  • Faster and easier deployment of new features and releases
  • High customizability on features and UI/UX
  • State-of-the-art, platform-specific, and responsive UI/UX
  • Maximization of a smartphone’s hardware functionalities (e.g. camera, GPS, movement detection, Bluetooth)
  • First-rate security, protected by an operating system
  • Access to highly specialized talent who have mastered their respective platforms
  • Resource-intensive apps such as mobile games and those with heavy animations
  • Apps that are part of a larger suite of applications (which may share some code)

How is a cross-platform app different from a native app?

In the early days of the smartphone era, developers were constrained to create applications specific or native to specific devices, operating systems, and whatever platforms they had to be built on. As the market and ecosystem for mobile apps grew, new approaches came out including how to make the same app for different platforms. This is how cross-platform development emerged.

Cross-platform applications are apps developed for several platforms, usually on both Android and iOS, based on a single source code. Cross-platform development offers advantages when it comes to the following:

  • Code reusability between iOS and Android mobile apps
  • Faster development process and time-to-market
  • Value for money and reduced development cost
  • UI/UX consistency across platforms
  • Broad market reach when testing and prototyping

Choosing one development approach over the other (i.e. native vs cross-platform) is not a straightforward decision. Each project has different priorities and a unique set of circumstances.

What technologies are used in native Android app development?

Choosing the technologies for your native mobile app is a critical decision that will have a considerable impact on its success. Native Android development is mostly written in Java, a dynamic and stable coding technology.

Further, Kotlin is now an officially supported coding language, giving developers the option of using Google Java or Google Kotlin.

Netguru a deep bench of specialists versed in a wide range of different Android development technologies. In our discovery and planning process with you, we’ll recommend the best technology that suits your project and business objectives.

What technologies are used in native iOS app development?

iOS apps can also be built with a range of technology stacks. Choosing which one to use will depend on your requirements.

Swift is a relatively new programming language, which Apple released to the public in 2014. In 2015, Swift became open-source. It abandons the Objective-C heritage and has all the modern programming features: generics, optionals, type inference, and higher-order functions.

Objective-C is a long-standing, highly trusted programming language that uses dynamic typing and message passing. It also requires dividing classes into two code blocks: interface and implementation.

Frequently asked questions about native mobile app development

Still not sure how our mobile experts can create value for your business? Here are some common inquiries raised by our clients.
Are native apps secure?

App security is a holistic concern that requires attention from a wide range of stakeholders. On our part, we continuously keep up to date with security standards and will never release a product we consider insecure.

Security audits are one way we keep on top of any potential weaknesses, but we also follow external guidelines, such as OWASP’s ASVS, OTG, or MSTG.

Before we begin the mobile app development process, we’ll make sure processes are in place to enforce these standards and guarantee that your product is secure before it goes to market.

Which mobile apps were built as native applications? Give some examples.

There’s a lot for us to name! At Netguru, we’ve worked on a lot of them. Here are some examples of native mobile apps that we built for our clients.

  • Shine, a mental health and well-being app
  • CarLens, a car recognition app
  • temi, a personal assistant robot
  • Helpr, a social care platform
  • Artemest, an e-commerce site for curated home décor, jewelry, and lifestyle art

And there are way more apps out there that you’re likely to be familiar with. Some examples of popular native apps are Spotify, WhatsApp, Pokémon Go, Waze, Soundcloud, and so much more.

How long is the development process for a native app?

This also depends on the nature and complexity of your project. The first two weeks are generally spent on planning, organization, and discovery. The following two to four weeks is typically devoted to interface design and workshops.

Then there's coding, development, testing, launch, and maintenance. We break down the process into cycles that keep track of the progress and manage the project timeline.
