Today, the relevance of programming has grown exponentially due to its constant relationship with the internet. Almost the entire world population is continuously connected to the network. It is there, where programming becomes more important as people interact with web pages, computer programs, and especially with mobile applications.
The mobile app development is the process by which a set of steps is carried out through programming code to create software capable of satisfying particular needs. They are designed especially for small devices such as phones or tablets. Most mobile apps are used through an internet connection. At present, the development of mobile applications is linked to two highly demanded platforms such as the iPhone iOS operating system (Apple) and the popular Android operating system used for several devices, especially Google.
An important point to keep in mind about application development is the different ways to create them. From the beginning, applications used to be built natively, that is, that a platform-exclusive programming language was used, for example, Android or iOS. Therefore, if you wanted to develop an app based on a different operating system, you had to rewrite all the code specifically for that platform. Usually, they are known as native mobile applications and are created with a specific programming language. The language used for Android is Java, for iOS it is Objective-C, and for Windows Phone, it is .NET.
Other alternatives for creating apps were established to make development work more efficient. It includes multiplatform (they can be used in several operating systems) and hybrid apps that are a combination of the previous 2 with extra benefits.
Aspects to keep in mind to create a mobile application:
- Determine if it will be an online or offline app.
- According to the type of application to be developed, it must be decided whether it will have a database or not.
- The geographical position for the audience to which the app is directed will be established.
- A content manager (static or dynamic) will be used to update the information.
- If the application will have a database and it will be necessary to log in, then a user registry must be created in the app.
- According to its objective, a paid or free application will be presented.
- Following the previous point, if any product will be sold within the app, then a payment system should be established.
- A friendly graphic interface must be designed so that the navigability is comfortable.
Within the field of mobile application development, it is essential that these applications reach their primary and secondary objectives and that they can be accessed from various platforms or operating systems.
