App development

App development (application development) can be done in various ways serving various purposes. The way applications are developed has changed its course over the past years. When you start with your app development, there are a few things that need to be considered. For example; what platform must it run on? Do I need to develop a mobile app as well? Who can develop this for me and how much time will it take?

Application development has changed its course over the past years. Technology has caught up and easier and more accessible ways have made their way into the application development world. Betty Blocks is a perfect example of this ‘next-generation’ app development. It is an aPaaS (application platform as a service) platform, ‘model-based’ with an intuitive ‘drag-and-drop’ interface. It is ‘in the cloud’ which means your app will run in any internet browser and is multi-device ready.

Mobile app development

Regular mobile app development requires the following aspects to be considered prior to development.

  • Native apps: They are specific to a given mobile platform (iOS or Android).
  • Web apps: They use standard web technologies – typically HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. They are cross-platform mobile applications that work on multiple devices.
  • Hybrid apps: This makes it possible to embed web apps inside a ‘native container’, combining elements of native and web apps.

With the so-called ‘next-generation’ application development, every application is automatically multi-device ready, cross-platform.
