Mobile Development

The increasing demand for Smartphones and tablets has replaced desktops and old version laptops. This switch is seen everywhere, both in the consumer perspective as well as the corporate world. Just think about it, there more than 1000 apps that are uploaded to both Apple Store and Google Play daily! If you are owning an e-commerce business, running a restaurant, managing a big logistics or procurement company or any kind of other businesses, it is a great idea to construct entirely functional mobile apps to involve customers’ attention. The presence of the mobile can play a key role in the success of your company amongst the entire market.

BeKey is dedicated to developing and operating cost-effective and flexible dedicated teams for small and large businesses. BeKey’s mobile development department plays an essential part in the entire company’s product development. Our proficient team manages the improvement in the mobile apps, both built-in and cross-platform, along with all the associated operations and support. We believe that these built-in and cross-platform mobile apps have their own place and the selections that users make will rely on the condition and the type of business that they run.

The difference between the two kinds of mobile apps is that Built-in mobile apps provide a high level of consistency and quick performance. This is because they are written exactly to take benefit of the distinctive characteristics that a mobile device offers. This means that at a very low level, the code is written explicitly for the processor in a certain device.

If you want to make a highly functional mobile app, picking the right mobile app technology is the key element. If you’re not clear on which method and technology to choose, get in touch with us so that our experts can suggest the best choice and make your app come into existence!

  • Java/Kotlin

    Java or Kotlin for Android

    Having extraordinary Android SDK and Android NDK development experience that goes only beyond the Java programming is our expertise. We are proficient in constructing these influential apps and are working across many mostly-used Android devices. Our professionals know how to make highly sustainable and performative apps with the help of the key programming languages such as C++, Java, and Kotlin.

    Java programming language is an instrumental tool for the development of the Android app and is widely used in an Android setting such as Android Studio.

    But Kotlin continues to increase the thrust amongst Android developers. Kotlin was designed by programmers from JetBrains to add some recent features to Java that come in a convenient way in the mobile development. Kotlin is an open source, statically typed language based on Java Virtual Machine.

    We, at BeKey, develop Android apps with the most modern tools and techniques. Our knowledgeable and capable team of Android developer gives us the confidence to take on the hardest of the encounters. Not just this but they also come up with the beautiful, cooperative, interactive interface designs that effects to your Smartphone and provide exceptional Android apps. Hence you enjoy the delightful user experience.

    Technologies and Tools we use:

    • Java, Kotlin, C/C++
    • NDK, Android SDK, Eclipse, Android Studio, Gradle, Maven
  • Objective C/Swift

    Objective C or Swift for iOS

    For the construction of an iOS app, the developer can either go with Objective-C or Swift. Objective-C is a superset of the C programming language and offers object-oriented competences and a vibrant and dynamic runtime environment. However, lots of developers prefer to use Swift as it’s more practical, provides code that’s less prone to errors because of its parallel maintenance for operating text strings and data. It also covers the dynamic collections that are directly uploaded to its memory, cutting down on the original size of the app and in the end increasing the performance of the app.

    The iOS SDK comprises of an Application Programming Interface (API) that helps as a link between software applications and the platform they run on. APIs can be made in various ways and contain useful programming libraries and other tools. The iPhone SDK offers tools for Apple’s touchscreen interface and for its exclusive iOS operating system, which is used to run Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

    Technologies and Tools we use:

    • Objective-C, Swift, C/C++
    • XCode, AppCode, iOS SDK, CocoaPods
  • Cross-Platform: Ionic, PhoneGap, ReactNative, Xаmarin

    Cross-platform development is a method that permits a single code-base to establish for numerous platforms or software environments.

    Therefore, the major benefits of cross-platform development are:

    • Cost-effectiveness
      • It allows investing once at a time and in a single team. This saves a huge cost.
    • One technology stack
      • Designers can use a single technology pile for a wide range of engineering responsibilities.
    • Recyclable code
      • Up to 90% of codebase can be recycled from one platform to the other, rather than designing the same functionality in another language.
    • Easy maintainability
      • It’s easier to maintain and use variations because there is no need to keep applications on each platform individually.

    Now let’s take a closer look at the most common framework used for cross-platform mobile development at BeKey:

    • Ionic is a free and open source of cross-platform language that can be used to develop extremely collaborative apps and distinct designs. The Ionic core is written with Sass and was initially based on a popular JavaScript framework named AngularJS. The Ionic major programming language is TypeScript, which is usually a superset of JavaScript that collects to basic JavaScript. TypeScript enhances the quality of the code because it helps to spot and remove mistakes during code typing.
    • Xamarin allows .NET mobile app developers to use their fixed tools such as Visual Studio and C# to produce commonly used apps for both Android and iPhone, IPad and iPod devices. Developers can’t use built-in open-source libraries that are accessible for iOS and Android with Xamarin, but there is a range of .NET libraries available. Many of the prevailing open source and in-house source code projects can be recycled in Xamarin.iOS or Xamarin.Android projects. Thanks to the C# and .NET framework combination!
    • PhoneGap is a web platform circulated by Apache Cordova and sponsored by Adobe. This branded platform allows us to implement typical web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development. The mythologies that PhoneGap use is appropriate for constructing only simple apps. PhoneGap apps make some use of device's abilities; have been exposed in the recent past with the addition of a wide choice of plugins like Image Capture plugin, Media Recorder Plugin, Push plugin, and much more.
    • React Native is the modern tool in the store of reformers who create the latest and hottest apps. This framework allows creating near-to-native mobile apps with the help of JavaScript and React.JS, a web framework, and is supported by Facebook. React Native combines the advantages of JavaScript and React.JS. The heavy side of React Native is that it permits for writing modules in Objective-C, Swift, or Java languages when designers need them. Using native modules and libraries in React Native apps, one can manage heavy operations like image editing or video processing.

    Technologies and Tools we use:

    • C/C++, C#, Xamarin, .NET, XAML, PhoneGap
    • Cordova, JavaScript, React, HTML5 jQuery
    • Sencha Touch, Ionic, Unity 2D/3D
