Why an app?

A mobile application increases your presence with your users. It makes up-to-date information available to them at all times. It also helps differentiate you from your competition.

What’s the difference between native and multiplatform development?

A native app uses the language of a specific platform. It follows and respects certain design guidelines, and uses all of the capacities the operating system and unit hardware have to offer. On the other hand, multiplatform development uses web technologies (HTML, Javascript and CSS). In this case, the same code applies to various operating systems, and includes specific guidelines for native systems.

What is UI (User Interface)

UI refers to the graphic interface with which the user interacts with the app.

What is UX? (User Experience)?

UX refers to the user experience, which includes several factors relevant to the user’s interaction with concrete a environment and/or device. The result of an UX is the generation of a positive or negative perception of the service, product or device.

What’s better? Native or multiplatform development?

At Pixzelle Studio, we recommend native development. It offers your users the best possible experience, and it takes maximal advantage of the hardware or device’s functionalities. However, multiplatform apps do offer some advantages compared to native development. These mainly revolve around time and cost.

What is the difference between a mobile app and a web app?

A mobile app is an independent program you can install on a smartphone or tablet to perform specific functionalities “on the go.” For example, messaging, listening to music, or receiving notifications, etc.

You can open a WEB APP from your web browser, and its main functionalities are used "on-site". For example, a content administrator.

What is an API? (Application Programming Interface)?

An API is a programming interface that we can use to connect different web services within our own application. In other words, it is a bridge that connects a cloud with a mobile application.

Do you recommend monthly maintenance on the app?

It is always recommendable to keep your app up-to-date. It is also good to frequently introduce new functionalities. It is important to consider that mobile technology is constantly changing, especially versions of operating systems and the screen-sizes. Contact us for further information.
