2.Why Are Enterprises Adapting To Mobility?

Enterprise Mobility is a gateway to achieving process efficiency, flexibility, and security around cross-functional teams in an organization. Nowadays, more digitally maturing companies are fundamentally shifting the way works get done in their organization.

CEOs, CXOs are highly inclined to adjust in a rapidly changing digital ecosystem as it is not only increasing productivity along with a source of revenue but also optimizing costs to a greater extent. 

Having said that, the ongoing pandemic crisis has also acted as a catalyst and forced enterprises to jump in the mobility bandwagon and ensure business continuity. In a nutshell, embracing Mobility is no more a choice but a compulsion to survive and thrive in the digital-led competition. 

3.Why Do App Developers Prefer iOS Despite Android’s Market Leadership?

Well, despite the fact that Android holds over 80% of the market share, iOS is the main source of revenue for developers. And is even poised to dominate future revenue opportunities.

On the other hand, when people can afford iPhones they will inevitably spend money on iOS apps as well. 

From a business perspective, iOS a breeze. Its exclusive features, ease of use, pricing model, and the brand’s status symbol has made it relatively more competitive. 

4.What Is the Average Budget of the Mobile Apps You Develop?

The average app development cost we develop ranges from USD 10,000 to USD 120,000.

However, the typical cost of mobile app development depends on no. of factors like app platform, complexities, no. of integrations and functionalities implementation to name a few which directly influence the total cost.  

5.Which Software And Tools Do You Mostly Use While Developing Apps?

Being a core Mobile App and Web Development Company, the tools and technologies used by us are Objective C, Swift for iOS app development, Java for Android app development, and for hybrid and cross-platform, we use frameworks like Ionic, React Native, Flutter, Angular, React JS, Xamarin, etc. 

We also use programming languages like HTML, CSS3, jQuery, Bootstrap, PHP, Node.js, and, to cite a few.

For Cloud Infrastructure, we rely on Amazon AWS, EC2, RDS, S3, Digital Ocean, etc. Besides, there are plenty of other tools and programming languages we use; anyone might want to consider as per their business needs. 

6.Do You Think Augmented Reality Apps Are The Future? Why?

As technological adoption increases, the use of AR apps by consumer product businesses will definitely pave the way for the future and permeate everyday life.

AR apps add an extra dimension and deliver unique immersive experiences that enhance customer experience (CX). And CX is everything! It will only get more important today and tomorrow. 

Besides, AR for gaming applications will also open up new avenues as the phenomenal rise of Pokemon Go has already made AR mainstream with its massive success

7.What Does The Popularity Of Games Like Pokemon Go Mean For The App Development Industry?

No doubt, many brands have reconsidered Augmented Reality in the wake of the incredible popularity gained by Pokemon Go. This naturally gives an uplift to the mobile app development industry.

We’re blown away by how AR enables gamers to experience unimaginable excitements and fantasies. Its potential has redefined the gaming and entertainment industry.

Thus, giving an open opportunity to app development companies to leverage its potential and take the gaming experience to the next level. 

8.Is Augmented Reality (AR) Just A Recent Fad in Mobile Gaming or Does It Have Real Staying Power?

Games like Pokemon Go has given enough evidence that Gaming and Augmented Reality are made for each other. The gaming app still has millions of players worldwide and the charm is refusing to slow down. 

That said, it is safe to assume, AR’s impact on the gaming business will only rise and go even further with an increase in adoption rates.
