We have got four departments. Mobile department is only one of them. These are our other departments:

They are always customized for our customers. We also create many dedicated apps. "Mobile” doesn’t mean for us only smartphone or tablet. We can also create solutions for beacons, smartwatches and VR glasses.

We can use a hidden power from native devices and deliver the full experience to the user.

We are paying a special attention to the design, quality and usability. These are the most important features of our solutions on Banking, Sales, Production, Energy, Building, Chemicals or Accounting.

What kind of app is your mobile app development company’s specialty?

Business applications are our company’s specialty. We deliver apps mainly to corporations and medium-sized companies. Our typical apps:

  • Project management (FlexiProjects)
  • CRM (Flexicrm)
  • Portals
  • Intranet
  • Workflow
  • Helpdesk
  • Collaborations
  • Analytics

What is the average budget of the mobile apps that you develop?

15 – 25K EUR

Do you develop all mobile apps in-house or do you outsource some parts of the process?

All mobile apps are developed in our office by our employees.

What is the best mobile app that your company has developed?

Project management apps – FlexiProjects. Mobile app is a part of FlexiProjects system. These apps make it possible to create interactions between project managers and workers. They can exchange information from list of tasks, progress, documentation, costs etc. The strength of the apps is a perfect communication among all team members.

Do you prefer to create mobile apps with native, hybrid or web languages?

IMGO native building apps is a natural way to do it. We can also create hybrid apps based on HTML5 e.g. Phonegap or Ionic.

Native apps can deliver more: more speed, better design, more flexi UX, more native solutions, more news, more experience.

Let’s focus on iOS and Android mobile app development. What are the Pros and Cons of each platform?

My look at each platform is quite different. I do not look at it from Pros and Cons but from business point of view. Customers have their own favourite platform. My role is to deliver apps to the platform in the best way.

From the marketing point of view, the most popular platform is an Android. If we look at customers preferences (common users, not company workers) most of them have Android devices, mainly from economical causes. That means that Android development has a bigger marketplace.

I love Apple design – IMHO is the best :)

Here I also want to point Windows 10. I think that this platform may also show the strength of corporation market as “secure solutions ideal to work in office, connected to many services inside corporate security rules”.

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

I think that evolution will be boosted by IoT. Smartphone market seems to be huge but a bit saturated as well. IoT market is really clean and ready to boom.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

The best device is the one that people would like to have. Here the leader is Apple with iPhone 6.

The second one is Samsung Galaxy S6. I prefer iPhone because of its design.

And which device do you feel more comfortable for developing an app?

From my point of view, more comfortable for developing means that I can easily have developers who can make apps. In that case, Android developers mostly. On every IT studies, Java is one of the main programming languages. But on the other hand, Apple steps forward from Objective C to Swift was the step into simplicity. Despite of the fact that Java is more popular!
