mobile development body image 1: devices

Mobile and more.

Creating an exceptional mobile experience is about so much more than just the technology you use. It’s about understanding the specific motivations, behaviours, expectations and constraints of your users across different devices. It’s about knowing how your users journey across and between different channels to achieve a goal. And it’s about predicting how emerging technologies and trends will change these behaviours, so you won’t get left behind.

User journey map

This is why we involve technical and user experience consultants in our projects from the very earliest stages, alongside a mobile development team skilled in all the latest languages, tools and frameworks. To help you define a multi-channel strategy that not only supports your wider brand objectives but that drives business results.

Our tech stack

software design

The programming languages we use to build our mobile projects.

  • JavaScript (ES2015)
  • HTML

  • WebSQL - browser copy of SQLite
  • LocalStorage - JSON blob store used for storing arbitrary information in the server

Providing well-tested, reliable code for common functionality.

Frameworks and libraries commonly used on projects are those designed to provide an overall structure to the codebase, often in an Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture, or to provide an Object-Relational Mapper (ORM).

  • Angular - JavaScript framework 
  • Cordova - mobile hybrid app platform
  • Ionic - mobile hybrid app platform which is built on top of Cordova and Angular
  • Gulp - JavaScript task runner

Projects are increasingly hosted in the cloud, or use cloud-based services for their functionality.

  • Travis - Continuous Integration server used for testing pull requests
  • Google Analytics - analytics platform used for tracking app screen views
