The benefits of building a native app is that you get access to built-in smartphone features with a higher level of accuracy and functionality and overall better performance. If your app relies heavily on using a hardware feature like GPS, Accelerometer, Camera, Microphone etc.. then it is recommended you build your app in a native environment to provide the best experience for your users.
At App Boxer, our experienced web designers and app developers take the time to map out an exclusive 1-2 year development plan while weighing up the pros and cons with you in order to decide if native app development is right for you. In some situations we advise to start with a hybrid app to validate the project as cost effectively as possible with the aim to consider a re-development into a native app once a project/startup has been validated and potentially in revenue.
If you’re not sure if Native apps are for you then feel free to reach out and we’ll help you weigh up the options.
Let's talk about what it takes to make your app, get funding and do something amazing, today.
Native app development is the creation of software that only runs on a particular device, platform or operating system. In the context of the app world this usually means the app only runs on Apple’s IOS or Google’s Android (Samsung, Google, HTC etc.. products) operating systems.
Native mobile app development is a time-consuming process. We highlight the six key phases of a successful native app development:
Strategy - Defining your competitive landscape, your targeted app users and mobile platform preference for your upcoming app strategy.
Analysis and Planning - Identifying your future app’s set requirements to create a product roadmap. This includes prioritising technical needs and regrouping delivery milestones.
UI/UX design - This phase aims to deliver a seamless user experience and polished design. Your success is dependent on how well users are adopting and benefiting from your native app’s features. User experience solutions include:
App development - Programming efforts start. Define the following three components; back-end technology, API(s) and the mobile app front-end.
Testing - Ensuring your native application is stable and usable with frequent quality assurance testing. Your native app should undergo the following testing methods:
Deployment and support - Submit your app to the app stores, Apple App Store for iOS apps and Google Play apps for Android. Make sure you have a developer account and app features the following metadata:
Native app development will require you to build the same app for differing operating systems, unlike Hybrid app development which can be used for multiple platforms. This can increase your development costs by 100% if your objective is to launch your native app on both platforms due to the urge to build and manage two separate sets of codes.
This depends on your business priorities and the features of your future app. A native and hybrid app each has their own advantages and disadvantages so familiarise yourself with both.
If you’re after faster and more reliable software for increased user experience, then a native app will be the best option for you. They have the advantage of interacting with a specific device’s operating system features but require a larger budget if you’re looking to develop your app for multiple platforms. Native apps also need to be updated regularly.
If you need an app ASAP, then you may want to consider developing a Hybrid App. They are faster and easier to develop and use cross-compatible web technologies and platforms Another advantage is that you can build them on a single base, allowing you to add new features to multiple versions without having you to replicate every new feature. However, they will never run as fast and efficiently as a native app. Hybrid app development has evolved dramatically over the last two years and has become the chosen method for the majority of new startups in the market.
Native app development costs anywhere from $50,000 to $500,000. Native Apps are more expensive to develop.
