App Design for Small Businesses – The Ultimate Guide

Mobile apps are everywhere these days. From fitness trackers to shopping lists, there are plenty of reasons why you might need an app on your phone. But before you start building yours, learn how to choose the right platform for your needs.

Why You Need an App

There’s no denying that mobile apps are taking over the world. In fact, according to Statista, there were 1.4 billion smartphone users in 2016, up from just 400 million in 2011. And with smartphones accounting for nearly half of all internet usage, it’s clear that mobile apps are going to play a big role in our future.

Choosing a Platform

If you’re looking to build an app, there are plenty of platforms out there to choose from. Each platform has its pros and cons, so it’s important to consider what features you need before choosing one. Here are some things to think about when deciding between iOS vs Android, or Web.

Building Your App

There are two main ways to go about building your mobile app: You can either develop it yourself using HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript (or similar) or hire a developer to do it for you. In both cases, you’ll need to decide whether you want to use native code or web technologies. Native code means writing your app in a language such as Objective C, Java, or Swift. This will give you access to hardware functions and APIs that aren’t available through JavaScript. However, it also means you’ll need to learn how to write these languages. On the other hand, web technologies mean developing your app with HTML5/CSS3 and JavaScript. These allow you to work with the same APIs as native apps, but they’re less complicated to setup.
