Designing an app nowadays is not as difficult as one imagines.  You can use a third party software and design it WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get).  It’s a matter of dragging and dropping onto your design canvas.  Most functions are built in to make an app work immediately right out the gate.  In the past, a programmer may have to program app from scratch thus it requires more skills in understanding how to make an app work with a cellphone operating system.

In this website, we’ll attempt to scour the web and bring back here app developer language and software so that you can have everything at your fingertips to create awesome apps.

For the daily influx of great apps, software checks in with us often.

Apps and What You Need to Know

When you don’t want to spend money on a rental car, you’ll just order an Uber. Imagine a situation where you could no longer access apps on your phone or tablet. Life would be so much harder, wouldn’t it?

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the different types of apps?

Hybrid apps

A hybrid is a mobile software designed to work like a website and an app simultaneously. This enables users to stream more data compared to accessing a site using a mobile browser. Also, these apps can offer some features while offline.

 

What are some examples of hybrid apps? Gmail, Instagram, and Uber. Another key characteristic is that they’re available on all mobile platforms.

Native apps

These apps are available on specific app stores. An iPhone owner cannot download Google Play simply because this app’s compatibility is limited to Android devices. Apps on the Apple Store are exclusive to iPhones, iPods, and iPads.

 

You’ll notice that these apps perform quite fast mainly because they’re optimized for your device. The biggest limitation is the potential loss of data when switching to a different mobile platform.

Mobile Web apps

Web apps are designed for accomplishing a specific purpose. For instance, a college app that’s used to enable students to sign up for classes on the school’s website. These apps help collect data and this function runs on very low RAM (Random Access Memory).

2. How do you know if an app is legit?

Here are a few guidelines to help you spot fake apps

1. Bad grammar

You’ll notice a series of spelling mistakes and wrong sentence structures under the app’s description. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook these mistakes since copycats duplicate the authentic app’s logo to quite a high degree. That’s why you need to read app descriptions keenly before clicking “Install”.

2. Several complaints

Do you read app reviews before downloading apps? It helps because you get first-hand information on what to expect. A shady app usually accumulates 2 and 3-star reviews from annoyed customers. Pay attention to the dates of the latest review to see whether the software developer addresses customer complaints.

3. Shady background

Legit software developers usually provide as much contact information as possible. You can also verify the contacts on Google Maps and they’ll turn out okay. Hackers are known for posting dubious websites and fake physical addresses.

 

3. How do I make my apps run faster?

1. Install the latest system software updates

Android and Apple release software updates to ensure your phone’s performance improves consistently. You can get rid of bugs by installing new updates from a verified source.

2. Clear cache data frequently

Mobile apps store data related to your previous activity as a way of analyzing your personal preferences. This data accumulates at a high rate and causes lag when launching apps. You can clean this by going to the settings of the app.
