Clients come to us with their great ideas.
Whether it’s a start-up company or an internationally known brand, the KPDI team partners with clients to help bring the ideas to life. If the idea isn’t fully cooked, we help our clients understand the possibilities and understand how strategically they can use mobile applications as part of their operations and to build their business.
We’ve built apps of all kinds – to supports campaigns, operational improvements or integration with wearable devices. We have extensive experience developing localized apps and deploying it in multiple countries and languages.
iOS & Android
As both an Android app development company and an iOS app development company, we have extensive experience in mobile app design for both iOS and Android and we understand the differences between these platforms from both a technical and design standpoint.
KPDI mobile application developers understand the different experiences within Android and iOS. Each platform is unique and needs to be technically and visually designed with this in mind.
Hybrid or Native App? Whichever is Best.
There are two popular approaches to building a mobile app, with pros and cons for each.
Hybrid apps are built using web language [?] and then wrapped in a native mobile language shell that makes it work on mobile devices. Because of this, hybrid apps can be developed faster and more affordably but it has its limitations. It makes perfect sense to build certain apps this way – depending on the features and functionality needed.
Native apps use the native mobile language for the entire app. This means that one app must be built for iOS using its native language and a second app for Android using its native language – even though they may look like the same app. Since we’re building two apps, this takes longer and is more expensive. However, if features such as Bluetooth, maps, social media integration or cloud backup look likely for the app (immediately or in the near future), building two native apps will save time and money in the short and long run to build in any of these features. KPDI can help you build a mobile hybrid app as well. Using PhoneGap (Codova), Ionic, or Titanium.
KPDI builds both hybrid mobile apps and native apps. We take a long-term view of how the app fits into our client’s strategy and can advise when it makes sense to use one approach over the other.
