Ever wondered what it takes to bring a mobile app to life? In this article weíll explain the process our customers go through when they hire us to build their mobile app and take it to market.
The first step is that flash of insight - the idea. Once a client has an idea we recommend they compile details by answering some of the following questions:

However, this was not the stat I was amazed at, I went on to discover that 5.1 earthlings own a smartphone. Whatís amazing here is that there are almost a billion people out there that own a smartphone but not a toothbrush Ė staggering!

So, the iPad Pro, isnít it just a really really large iPad? Well, Iíve just discovered itís not really that simple. Weíve taken a closer look at Appleís new offering and the first few things we wondered were, is it a laptop? Is it a sketchbook? Is it a mini TV? Or is it even an extremely expensive lunch tray?

The latest iPhone and Android plus-size smart phones (phablet) were revealed within 3 weeks of each other, leaving some consumers wondering which one to choose?

Constraints are the name of the game, not only are you constrained to a small space on a small screen that fits inside your pocket, but when you are developing your mobile app, give yourself constraints. So, what does that mean? Build yourself an MVP, not a most valuable player (excuse the Americanism) although we hope that it will become the most valuable player in the app store. What I actually mean is build a Minimal Viable Product.

As an app development company we are often asked by potential clients how they can protect their app from other individuals or companies copying their idea. So, I thought Iíd just spend a little time giving some general advice to help people understand what the limitations are.

Initially, I was pretty sceptical about the smartwatch. Most of the guys in the office have one so Iíve had a play around with them on many occasions. To be honest theyíve never really appealed to me, why do I need another device buzzing, blinking and beeping at me all day long? However, the Apple Smartwatch is different in that it actually values my time. Bear with me while I try to explain.
Ok, Iíve been wearing the 42mm stainless stee...more
