Although Android commands a huge market share, Apple’s iOS has huge revenue share as well as user engagement. Simply put, iOS users are more willing to spend their time and money on apps. And that’s why enterprises and startups often prefer an iOS first approach – where they release the app only for iOS and then make it available for other platforms.
While we offer a range of development services, we have put iOS at the heart of our company. Our team of expert app developers, can help you build your next perfect iOS app and launch it on the app store.
iOS App Design
“Design is not how it looks, Design is how it feels” ~ Steve Jobs
One of the most important metric today with apps, is noting how frequently the users come back and use your app again. At App Developers Ireland, our team of UI and UX experts design apps that are user-centered, engaging and keep your customers coming back to the app again and again.
We also take great care to abide by Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines for iOS apps.
App Store Approval
Unlike Android, Apple’s apps go through tough quality checks by Apple. These quality checks usually take 4-6 days and it is highly possible that during this process your app might get rejected for minor issues, thereby affecting your go-to-market time. This can also affect any other marketing that you might have planned around your app.
Our experience of developing n+ apps has made us well versed with Apple’s expectations and we guarantee no rejections in the last moments as your app ramps up for a release.
While the iPhone has a huge share in the Apple ecosystem, a successful app strategy would mean, your app has to support iPad as well as Apple Watch. We make meaningful extensions for iPad and Apple Watch, that complement your iPhone app – thereby getting users to use your app when their phone is not around them.
With Apple TV, Apple is bringing the power of apps to the living room. Building for Apple TV is challenging, as a lot of interfaces and gestures available in the iPhone are not available here – but with our expert team that has produced n+ Apple TV apps, rest assured we will deliver a quality viewing experience for your apps.Building a quality app today, will save a lot of money and time later for you. We spare no efforts in ensuring that the app we develop today is well tested by our team of testers.
We also commit to well-architected code, and run various scenarios to get rid of memory leaks and performance issues. And finally, your app is tested on all range of current devices with different OS versions to ensure – your user base has a crash free experience while using your app.
As an expert in app development, we know successful apps are not only about code. We not only build your app for you, but also assist you with ideas for marketing, user retention and app discovery.
Once your app has been released in the wild, we support you with monitoring your app’s performance and thereby give periodic updates to your customer base, which translates into high customer engagement.
iPhone App Development
The iPhone has been at the forefront of the Smartphone revolution and has been responsible for creating a billion dollar apps industry. At AppDevelopers.ie, our team of iPhone developers have been building apps ever since the iPhone was launched in 2008, and have been doing ever since.
Building apps for iPhone involves a lot of know-how on Apple’s best processes, and how the app store works. Our expert team is eagerly waiting to work with you to build your idea into a successful app and help you build your app strategy from Scratch. Here is how we build iPhone apps at AppDevelopers.ie
Swift and Objective C
When the iPhone launched, apps could be written only in Objective C. But quite recently, Apple has launched it’s new programming language Swift – which has been in high demand ever since. At AppDevelopers.ie, our agile methodology has enabled us to accept this overnight change in the market, and made us one of the leaders in Swift application development.
Our team is well versed with Objective C as well as Swift app development. Got an existing Objective C app that needs a rewrite in Swift? Or want to explore Server side Swift using Vapor? Get in touch with us today to help us, help you.
The Power of Hardware
The iPhone comes with a lot of on device hardware that can be accessed using the API. Some of the notable ones are 3D Touch, and fingerprint recognition. Using the APIs, we can build your app to be secure using fingerprint recognition, and provide easy to use context using the 3D Touch.
The iPhone also connects with various external entities, like Beacons and Bluetooth enabled devices. Our expert development team has deep expertise in BLE and Beacons technology, so we can use this to your benefit by creating a feature rich experience for your users.
Generate Revenue from your apps
Are you an eCommerce company looking to sell your products on mobile? Or an aspiring startup entrepreneur with an idea for an app that can generate millions? It is quite important that at some point in your app lifecycle, you charge your users for the services they use.
Our project managers notice this while consulting on the app with you and suggest best payment methods for your app. We are well versed with Apple Pay, In-app purchases and Freemium model. Book a free consultation today for your iPhone app idea.Thanks to Apple’s device release strategy, at any point in the Apple ecosystem there are only 3-4 models of the iPhone to support. And at the same time, Only 2-3 versions of OS to be supported.
Our in-house testing lab has a range of 20+ iPhone devices on different OS, which effectively cover 96% of the entire ecosystem. Your app is rigorously tested not only on simulators, but on these devices as well, to ensure your users face a bug free experience.
iPad App Development
According to the research firm IDC, The iPad roughly takes up 25% of the tablet market. The iPad has replaced traditional desktop and has now become the smart worker’s go-to device for all their work as well as entertainment purpose. Therefore, any app development strategy is incomplete without considering iPad as one of the leading devices to target for.
At AppDevelopers.ie, having built many iPad apps, we can help you launch your digital strategy for iPad apps by creating engaging and iPad specific apps. Here’s what we take into consideration while building iPad apps
UI / UX Design
While many apps might just run their iOS apps on iPad, this is a bad strategy as this leaves a lot of space unutilized, thereby giving a bad user experience. We understand that with users, getting that first impression is critical for your app, and therefore build compelling UX / UI that enchant the user at the first time.
We design iPad apps using Apple’s recommended guidelines and make full use of iPad’s retina display to create crisp and high quality UI. Our team first sketches out the design, and then with prototyping tools, creates mockups for validating it with users of your app.
Apple Pen with Multi Touch
Apple’s iPad Pro launched with Apple Pencil which has opened up various avenues for developers to build compelling multi touch interfaces. We have built apps that have innovatively used the Apple Pen to engage users, and our team is well versed with creating high quality apps that stand up to Apple’s rigorous guidelines.
The iPad is one of the few tablet devices that support multi-tasking effectively, and let users run two apps at the same time. We understand that today’s user wants to work on multiple apps together at the same time, and keeping that in mind, build all iPad apps to be multi-tasking optimized.
That means your users can now use your apps as they browse the morning news or wait for their daily weather updates. It’s a win-win as users get the information they wanted, and you get users to stay hooked on to your app.
For the iPad, you can build apps that support paid as well as in-app revenue streams. It is quite evident that the major base of paying customers in today’s mobile market exist on iOS, hence it is quite important to have a revenue generation strategy for your app.
Our team will guide you with strategies for revenue generation, be it in-app purchases or free ads and then develop the effective solution for you. We know that, when you win, we win as well.We know that our responsibility does not begin or end with only developing the app. It starts much more earlier. From the time, you contact us, we work closely with you to identify your app’s strategy and help setup the entire roadmap in terms of marketing as well as user outreach.
Once your app is deployed to the app store, we work closely with you on fixing bugs, tweaking performance and adding any new features. Building a quality app is a long term strategy, and we have the team and resources to support you do exactly that. Contact us today to get a free consultation for your iPad app.
