Native app development
We develop the best possible products with performance, design, user experience, and code quality in mind. Native app development is the only way to achieve all that.
Building native apps unlocks the full potential of the platforms we work with and enables us to bring the highest standards of app experiences to our users.
Native dominates the app landscape for a reason – well actually for many reasons
By using native technologies we can build the most intuitive interactions that feel familiar to the user.
As developers and designers we can access the full feature set of the device, allowing us to create a richer and more personalised experience.
We build directly on top of the core technologies from the platform vendors with no large open-source frameworks in the middle.
Despite the rapid emergence of cross-platform frameworks, native apps continue to be the predominant mobile development approach.
Today, only 10% of free iOS apps and 25% of Android apps are non-native. Although native development has been around for longer, it's likely that native development will stay predominant due to the inherent advantages they offer.
Native apps are fast
Native mobile apps are created and optimised for a specific platform using technologies designed specifically for that platform. This makes the apps faster and more responsive compared to the cross-platform alternatives. Native apps leverage programming languages and APIs designed for the platform, enabling frictionless communication between the application and the operating system. While everybody can agree that a slow app is a dealbreaker, this is, in truth, a matter of seconds. As such, for every second delay in a mobile page load, Google estimates that conversions fall by up to 20%, making speed performance imperative to not only your users, but also your business.
Direct access to system framework
As native apps communicate directly with the operating system’s core frameworks with no cross-platform bindings in between, we can leverage any technology offered by the platform vendor directly from our codebases. When the platform is updated to offer users new technologies, we are ready to take advantage of those from day one. Furthermore, native development is often associated with fewer bugs and a more stable performance as they need fewer integrations, thereby reducing the risk of faulty code.
As a general trend, native apps are often considered more secure than cross-platform apps. One of the reasons for this is that native code interacts directly with the platform’s security frameworks with no cross-platform framework posing as the middle-man, and as such, eliminating an otherwise attractive attack vector.
Better use of hardware
Native apps can directly access the device’s hardware such as microphone, camera, GPS etc., and are not reliant on a third-party support tool to facilitate access. This results in faster execution and a more efficient use of the device’s hardware. As such, app developers are able to offer a wide range of functionality by seamlessly leveraging the phone’s capabilities. For the user, this translates to a richer and more natural user experience, as all of the device’s features can be accessed without friction.
Built to look and feel good for everyone
This also ties to the design of the app, for which native app developers can easily access the operating systems interface elements and motion graphics. Consequently, it's possible to build aesthetically-pleasing apps that match the operating system in look and feel with minimal effort. The result is an overall smoother and more satisfying experience, which have shown to have several derivative positive effects in the form of lower customer acquisition costs, increased user retention and increased market shares.
Platform vendors put great effort into making their interface elements feel good for everyone. They are optimised for accessibility making your app attractive to a larger audience of people. By building apps directly on top of the platform vendor’s interface elements, we can take advantage of their advanced accessibility features.
It pays off
Taken together, a native app offers your users a better experience. By leveraging the full potential of your device’s features, you will deliver a rich experience while also strengthening your business’ value proposition through your app. Ultimately, this may yield higher conversion rates and customer loyalty. So, investing in native development will quickly be worth it.
Taking your users seriously
Most people these days spend great amounts of time on their phones. They are very well aware of and acquainted with the details of great user experiences. By building native, you're taking the sophistication of your users seriously. They know what a great product feels like, and they are harsh in judging less than superior user experiences.
Taking users seriously and providing them with a product that lives up to company standards is key.
