Are you aware that a typical consumer in the United States spends five hours on mobile devices every day?

There’s a statistic that’s even more eye-opening for people in Android or iPhone application development. That stat is that consumers spend 92 percent of the time they’re online using a mobile device in apps. Of that time, about 50 percent of it is spent in social, messaging and entertainment apps. Thanks in part to the communitainment trend.

People spend a lot of time using apps. The question businesses seek to answer is should they develop a mobile app or a mobile responsive website. In many instances, the answer is to have a mobile app and a mobile-optimized website.

Here are the top 5 reasons why your business should have a mobile app;

If you think apps are limited to large, established brands, think again. Businesses of all sizes in every imaginable industry can benefit from having an app in addition to their mobile-oriented website. In fact, a well-designed, user-friendly app may prove to be one of your most powerful marketing tools regardless of how big or small your organization is. There are many choices when searching for mobile app development companies. Its important you do your diligence and find an app development company that you feel comfortable & confident with. Having the best mobile app design for your business is critical.

When consumers download an app, it’s within view every time they use the mobile device they added the app to. Even if they’re not going to use your app right away, they’ll remember the icon that represents your brand. This means your brand will be in their thoughts even if they scroll past your app in search of a different one.

Being constantly visible to consumers is a great thing because it means your brand is in the minds of consumers, even if it’s only in their subconscious. In addition to keeping your brand visible, having an app can provide more significant benefits.

 

1. Increases Brand Recognition

This is what’s known as “effective frequency.” In general, a person has to see or hear about your brand around 20 times before they recognize your brand and feel comfortable buying your goods or services. When your app is on someone’s screen, it won’t take long for the person to see your brand 20 times or more.

 

2. Creates a Digital Marketing Channel

You can use push notifications to send personalized messages about your sales and promotions, which can lead to direct interactions with your customers.

 

3. Provides Greater Value

Consider establishing a rewards program that gives people bonus points simply for downloading your app. When people use your app to make a purchase or they complete another desirable action like sharing your content on social media, you should give them more points they can redeem through your application. You can also create promotions or contests that are only available to people who use your app. Speak to your app development company about implementing one of these reward programs into your app

4. Improves Engagement

If you run a pet grooming shop or a salon, your customers can send you messages to make appointments. Similarly, people can send messages about their reservations if you operate a restaurant or hotel. If you have an app made for your doctor’s office, your patients can use your app to make appointments and ask questions about their health status or test results.

 

5. Differentiates Your Business from Competitors

This presents a fantastic opportunity for you to differentiate your organization from its competitors. Be the first, or one of the first, in your niche to have an app.

 


Choosing Mobile App Designers in Los Angeles

While price is an important factor for many organizations, it’s far from the only thing you should consider. You also need to think about whether an Android or iOS developer will work with you long term.

Choosing Sunlight Media as your android or ios developer in Los Angeles, ensures you get a local partner. We are fully committed to the success of your application. You will likely need changes even after you complete the prototype app. Sunlight Media look to establish a long term relationship with all their clients. That’s our number one objective.

iOS & Android Development Services

Do you have a concept for a mobile application that you don’t know how to implement? Do you currently have an out-of-date mobile application for your business that you’re trying to revamp? Or are you simply interested in starting an application but have no idea where to begin?

At Sunlight Media, our app developers in Los Angeles are highly skilled and trained in various fields of programming and application design. Our app developers understand the importance of having a user-friendly and dynamic mobile application that represents your business. They will work with you until your app is exactly the way you want it to be.

It doesn’t matter if your app needs one minor change or multiple comprehensive revisions, we’ll handle them all.
Sunlight Media like to ensure our clients are satisfied with the end result. That’s why we’re willing to make an unlimited number of revisions to every application we design for our valued clients.

Mobile App Development Software

In order to start building your mobile application, it is important to have the appropriate development software installed. Sunlight Media utilizes different app developing software to ensure that we have all the resources to build your dream app. One example of mobile app development software we utilize is Apache Cordova, a powerful building software. It creates apps that function across many platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8 and others. This software builds hybrid applications (reference “Hybrid vs Native App” below). In other words, it wraps your website code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) into a package that is accessible through a mobile app.

Another example of an app development software is Adobe PhoneGap, which creates apps for only Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 8. This software is great because it allows our web developers to spend more time creating/editing your app. Similar to Apache Cordova, this software also utilizes the hybrid app building technique.

With these powerful mobile app development software, Sunlight Media can deliver a product that can boost your brand’s productivity. Not only do our developers have a wide range of experience with many types of app development software, but they can accordingly determine which software would best suit your needs.

Mobile App Development Tools

Not only does Sunlight Media rely on quality app development software, there are also various tools that we use to reinforce your app. An important step in the app process after designing the prototype is to test the finished product. To accomplish this, we use Experitest, a popular platform that runs tests on mobile applications. With this tool, we can debug and make improvements to your app based on the test data extracted by Experitest.

Another aspect that is crucial to app development is ensuring your app’s security. For this task, our developers rely on tools such as AppWatch, which makes a complete security scan of your app. With such tools, we identify potential security threats or issues in your app and can act accordingly to secure your mobile application.

Similar to selecting appropriate app development software, Sunlight Media also relies on other cross-platform tools to accelerate building the product. This tool is geared towards the native mobile app building technique (refer to “Hybrid vs Native App” below). All in all, Sunlight Media developers create a higher quality product for your brand with these powerful development tools.

Mobile App Development Frameworks

At Sunlight Media, our app developers employ mobile app development frameworks like Ionic and NativeScript to code your app. The Ionic framework combines both web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and the Cordova software for app developing. In this framework, developers can use JavaScript programming or a related language called TypeScript because it proofs our code as we write. Another similar technology to Ionic is called NativeScript, which combines the JavaScript and TypeScript languages. As opposed to HTML and CSS, however, our developers must convert your interface to use XML and CSS instead. While there are other internal differences between these two frameworks, Sunlight Media utilizes both to construct the application that your brand needs.

Mobile App Development Costs

app development costAs much as building a mobile application for your business, you may be wondering if your business can even cover the costs of this type of technology. When you search online, the typical production costs for a mobile app can range from $100,000 to $300,000—a number that may force you close your laptop in horror.

At Sunlight Media, not only do we care about your business and the mobile application that you want to create for it, but we also want to bring you a solution that is highly affordable. We cannot give an accurate price range because there are simply too many variables to consider when comparing the costs between clients’ projects. These may depend on the requests made and how long the app development will take. However for a rough estimate of how long or how much your mobile app may cost or take to create, contact us. We would be happy to discuss any potential projects you have in mind and its potential costs, whether you want to develop a brand new mobile app from scratch or if you’d simply like to make any minor fixes to an existing app.

Hybrid vs Native App

Another factor to consider when thinking about mobile app production is whether you want a hybrid or a native app. You can read more about the differences between hybrid vs native app development on this blog  post

A native application is a mobile app that consumers use on a mobile operating system. For example, there is the Swift language for iOS. While you can’t install it across various operating systems, the application operates intimately on one type of device. It strictly follows the specs of that smartphone’s operating system. The user interface is intuitive because the app is adapted for this type of smartphone’s operating system. In other words, the app will perform extremely well on that specific operating system. If you are willing to extend production time over six months, then this option may work for you.

The hybrid application is a web application created with HTML5/JavaScript that has been wrapped inside a native container. In other words, it is a website that a developer changed to function on smartphone operating systems. A benefit of the hybrid app is that it can work across multiple mobile platforms and is generally more affordable to develop than native apps. Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are all examples of hybrid applications. A company will choose this option if they are looking to release a mobile platform for their business quickly.
