Why Do I Need a Mobile App?
Mobile apps have become absolutely essential for small & large businesses alike. Companies live and die by the quality of their customer relationships, and a mobile app provides a robust platform for you to build those bonds. It also makes it easy to find new customers, and to push both engaging content and specialized promotions to your fans. In a nutshell, a mobile app helps you stand out from the crowd, building brand loyalty and customer engagement.
What Is Mobile App Design and How Does It Differ From App Development?
Mobile app design and development are tightly linked, but they differ in several important ways. Design refers to the aesthetics and flow of your app. What is the color scheme? How big are the navigation buttons and where are they located? What fonts will you use? How is the text laid out? What does the spacing look like? All these decisions and more affect the user’s experience. The goal is to design a mobile app that is intuitive for first-time users, making it abundantly clear where to go and what to do to interact with it. Yet the app must remain engaging for repeat users, without letting them feel like they have already exhausted everything that it has to offer.
Mobile app development includes all of the nuts and bolts of achieving a great mobile app design. Think of design as the artistic vision and development as the behind the scenes technical work that brings that vision to life. You need a design and development team with the creativity and vision to turn your ideas into a fully-realized design, and the technical know-how to develop that design into a reality. Your team also needs to understand the differences between different app platforms and how to build an app that is competitive in your chosen market space. At The BHW Group, we know how to bring great apps to life, delivering them to their audience on time and at the right cost. We understand how to make your app stand apart from the crowd.
