iOS, Android and Windows
Apps for all operating systems
We develop apps for almost all operating systems like iOS, Android and Windows.
If you’re developing a business app for your customers, it is important to know which mobile devices they have. In order to deliver to all your customers, the app should be suitable for all platforms.
Companies that are standardized for hardware and are developing an app for internal use, can implement an app for the specific operating system already in use.
If an organization still has to choose a hardware and operating system and pursue a successful implementation, we have 7 items to help:
- Consider the work environment (outdoor, impact, sunlight, connectivity, etc.)
- Availability of accessories for application (scanners, batteries etc.)
- Restrict management costs (maintenance, updates, repair, replacement, etc.)
- Capture support process (questions, repairs, replacement, etc.)
- Instructions to users (hardware and application)
- Battery life (good charging or replacement battery)
- Applications (Operating System)
The operating system on your computer, phone or tablet ensures that all basic features work, it is the layer between the user and the physical device hardware. For example, you can unlock the screen, install and open apps and appear on screen when touching the keys. The well-known mobile operating systems are Apple iOS, Android, and Windows.
In the case of the iPhone and iPad, the operating system is iOS. You will find this operating system on all Apple computers, phones and tablets. As such, the supply of hardware is limited, you are bound to Apple products. Unlike Android, which supports a much larger range of devices. iOS controls virtually all basic features on your iPhone or iPad, it’s the underlying system that allows you to install and open apps, type you and unlock the device with Touch ID. So it makes sure you can use your iPhone or iPad (Pro).
Android is Google’s mobile operating system. Android gives phones and tablet manufacturers the ability to determine how the operating system looks like the device. As a result, there may be differences in operation and, for example, the user interface on a Samsung differs from a HTC device. An Android device is customizable to the user’s personal preferences. This gives companies more opportunities to better tailor the app to the user. Android is currently the most widely used operating system. Suitable Android hardware is available in virtually any price range, from entry to industrial tablet.
Compared to iOS and Android, Windows has less features and features a different look. There are less standard apps than that for iOS and Android. However, when developing a native Windows app, this does not have to be a limitation.
It’s not a matter of good or bad when it comes to the most appropriate operating system. Each system has its pluses and minuses. The choice can be made based on optimal use of your application and which operating system best suits you.
