In the world of business, time is what will always lie ahead, and it shows us the things that have advantages and those that do not. It is a testimony of our attempts to catch up with it and also our inability to do so.
It is a key player for us and our competitors, since we are all in a race against it and race against options to do our best at a moment given. As we took a leap from one millennium to another, digitalization has moved out of its comfort zone and become as important as survival, especially in terms of business. To make the game even more advanced, there wouldn't be many jobs without apps.
One thing to demonstrate how far we moved away from the first steps of civilization are the generations nowadays greatly surprised by the past without the technology and the trotting some of us - our parents, their parents and everyone before them had to deal with. Another thing that shows how far we progressed are the generations who do not know what growing up without smartphones looks like and being rather young are dominant in the applications world as if they have created them. Plot twist – some of them have - the young, prodigies of this age are behind mobile app development with ideas, solutions and entire products.
We are head over heels in apps so much and the empires created by some prove that. The power of the application is also demonstrated by the losses the systems suffer within just a few minutes. This is where the advantage of the application lies, because when you lose money on the stock market it is difficult to get back on your feet, and when the system 'shocks' the app for a short time, it quickly starts back since everyone wants to check back in and make up for what they have missed. The power of 'online' is bigger because it cannot be seen and it reaches far. The everyday life of each individual proves this regardless of one's environment, goals he has and the kind of life he leads. We have entered an era where you cannot interact at all without apps except in one on one privacy.
Apps rule the 21st century and without them any serious shift is impossible and that is the fact. Many are bothered by them is another fact and the sooner we come to terms with that, the more comfortable we will be in our own shoes. Just look at how comfortable Zuckerberg is.
In order to be in a position to set the prerequisites in business, first of all we must create working conditions for ourselves. Every journey starts with small steps and as we get used to the scope of work, structure, ups and downs, we look for ways to create new conceptual solutions that will be a key leverage point for business.
Digitization has taken away great physical effort from work and halved demand for one. Due to digitization some businesses moved primarily to phone, a device available to everyone. Look around you and you will find that everyone has it in their hand which means that you are one good marketing trick and algorithm everyone will blindly follow away from next good business venture. That endeavour is not far from you if you have the right team to lead users to your source. The truth has always been liberating and in the 21st century it tells us that we need to follow online trends in order to survive. It also shows us that there is no online trend to get more money and bigger interaction with users like mobile application does.
The good news is that this truth asks for a paper and pencil, patience and money to invest in designing it. Pen and paper to make a wish list for all the app segments, patience to give space to designers to create and fulfil every wish or whim you may have and money to provide you with additional financial strength. There is no profit without investment and mobile app investments are a special kind of investment - ones that change your business system overnight, ones that give you a better insight into the business because statistics gathered online come with an app. Also, it is designed for a particular audience, and the most particular one is the one that turns your enterprise into a company - service users. The possibility to offer 'extras' to your business users is even more special – having fun in work which otherwise would not be available offline. A good designer knows how to perform online after accepting your suggestions and integrating them into functional, meaningful and creative application systems. This further complements your business because everyone wants to pay for having a good time, whether offline or online. Custom app development is nothing but an online world in the palm of your hand from which you please others and the only thing you have to decide is the form of application you want. That shouldn't worry you too much either, a good software company will present the best options for your business and help you choose the right one.

The good news is that you need paper and pencil for it, patience and money to invest in designing it. Paper and pen to compile your wish list and segments that you think the app should have, patience to give space to designers to design and realize your every wish or even whim, and money that will provide you with additional financial strength. There is no profit without investment, and mobile app investments are a special kind of investment - one that changes your business system overnight, one that gives you a better insight into the business because with the application comes statistics that it hides among its online walls. It is also designed for a special audience, and the most special is the one that makes your company a company, and that is done by service users. An even more special thing is that you can offer a group of people around whom your business revolves, additional "little things" that you would not otherwise be able to entertain the world other than online entertainment through your business. A good designer knows how to create good online moments after he has accepted your suggestions and combined them with functional, meaningful, and creative application systems. This only further complements your business because everyone likes to pay for a good time, whether live or online. Custom app development is nothing but an online world in the palm of your hand from which you satisfy others but also yourself, and it is up to you to choose which form of application you want. You don't have to worry too much about that either, because a good software company will present the best options for your business and help you choose the right one.
The work will never be done by itself, unless it is an application but needs 'a little push' too. The work won't be efficient if done under pressure either. In those cases, it tends to fail more and a failing job is a bad job. Yes, there are people who work under great pressure and play with fire but burnout often happens when least expected. An overheated brain is like an overheated car engine, except that the trick of turning on the heating max with an engine doesn't work with the brain. An overheated engine has financial consequences and an overheated brain both mental and financial. That is why pressure should never be an option since it is nothing but pouring water on an overheated engine.
Many companies want to have everything at once but what can be done. In the software world what is important is making an agreement, getting an impression, exchanging information and setting optimal deadlines until the scope of work that everyone has to manifest is clearly seen by all team members. Teamwork sometimes implies whole team working at the same time and sometimes that the work must be done in segments. Doing job in segments with one team member to another is even more difficult because e.g. person B is unable to start his job until person A has completed his. The type of personality doing the job has also got to be taken in consideration. Extroverted team members can talk and work at the same time and deliver extraordinary results, while the introvert waits for everyone to leave the office to start their work and skyrocket in the market. It takes all sorts to make the world but it takes all jobs to make one goal - a job well done. Such a job never comes from a compromise, because compromise brings work 'without butterflies' and such a job is a sloppy job.
Compromise is the enemy of happy circumstances because when you compromise you partly give up on your own wishes. For that there is a great chance that sometime in the future we will blame each other for what we have given up for better cooperation. However, a good deal is very much half the job done, and a long-term cooperation is based on one. Understanding and compassion too. Understanding is putting ourselves in another person’s position, getting their shoes on. Compassion is nothing but walking in those shoes. A deal is tying other person's laces.
We all love saving time, money and effort, but without all of these time flies even more and we can't use it the way we want, the way it suits us. Therefore, think twice before you cut in this business as in any other. And there is no better prevention than a job well done. In the world of apps and competiveness that is cross platform development (CPD).
CPD is a system that allows an app to run various operating systems, at least two at the same time. CPD creates a software with specific online environment reaching millions of users in a short period of time. It uses a single code so you do not have to hire additional software thus reducing your costs. Since CPD is an internal database, the work is done slowly and does not require maintenance. Users always have the latest version of the app, so you don't have to worry about them missing something or you losing something else.
Native app development has been a good competitor for CDP for a reason although created in 2015. It proves a good product sometimes does not take years but a good team of experts. This system is popular for a reason and performs outstandingly in most of the cases. NAD is often used by developers because of its advantage over other systems, especially when in terms of stability. Simplified UI design makes it easier to use. Timeless classics never go out of style and being timeless is always the most lucrative.
We resist numbers all our lives. In school, learning data as well, and once when we step into the world of business, we resist for fear of being some poor figure with unsatisfactory and negative results. Such results clearly prove that something is not going as planned in terms of work.
Statistics tell us there are over four million apps worldwide used on 14 billion smartphones or iOS devices. If you want to have your app in this statistics, then you must choose the operating system.
Cross-platform development is one of the options to choose from. It saves time and money but sometimes questions the quality and we know quality questions credibility.
The advantages of this app are simple:
- It saves money and asks for one developer to develop the app;
- One code runs the entire system.
On the other hand, CPD like anything else has some disadvantages, these applications are slower with limited functionality.
Native App Development is a system is a larger sum of money away. It takes one to invest and justify the credibility of both the application and your company. This system does not limit developers while making an app that being one of the leading software advantages. The money you invest is followed by better performance and speed, making it easier for you to progress. Higher quality UX design is also synonym to a good income. A disadvantage this app may have is that if you want its new version you need to hire another team to work on this 'problem, and the new team implies new costs.
When you try to decide which application is more profitable for the job it needs to do, always make a decision based on the amount of work it can actually do for you. Check the expenses, is it simple or not, how fast it can be created and how long it takes for the end user to get to it. Take UX into account, what UI design is like and also check your own patience and understanding of this topic.
You get what you pay for is a common saying. Sometimes not so true because you can get things cheaper if you know where to look for. Look for the profit but also for a personal manager for your project. With good communication it becomes a collaborative project. Mutual investments are followed by mutual since no one loses with good communication. Transparency in thinking, desires and possibilities is software world poker where all the cards are on the table, and you can win only if you don't bluff. Good communication is based on refined communication skills where at the end of the day we all understand other people's rights and also needs. The word teamwork speaks for itself and you can only have one if you truly understand the concept of development work but also the obligations it brings. So ypu get what you pay for. You get compassion as much as the joy.
