Mobile-based Web Applications

Mobile devices offer an interesting option for delivery of complex enterprise functionality. They are always available and perfect for functionality that use GPS or require on-site features like photographs/video or email. However with the plethora of devices developing native apps can quickly get very expensive since it is difficult to control the devices that a user carries.

Also for any complex functionality it is essential to have the apps talk to a web application. The apps and the backend API have to be carefully built so as to not need a lot of updates: it takes weeks to get updates approved on the Apple App Store and users will not like having to update their app very often.

We have found that it is significantly more cost-effective to use a common code base like Phonegap to build the native apps. It helps utilize the HTML/JS/CSS skills that are easier and cheaper to find than those for Objective C or Android/Java. Our approach to building portable mobile apps along with our existing skills for building scalable web applications make us good partners to team with for helping you develop your mobile based web applications.
