Significance of Mobile App Development Services
Mobile app development service involves designing, creating, testing, and launching software applications for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices for enhanced customer engagement and brand visibility.
Custom mobile apps are tailor-made mobile applications created to address the requirements of a specific audience rather than a massive group of people. Custom mobile app development provides the functionality and features that non-specific off-the-shelf solutions cannot.

Different mobile applications for businesses
There are four common types of mobile applications developed by businesses worldwide:
Native Mobile Applications : Platform-specific applications developed using the programming languages, SDKs, tools, and frameworks provided by the platform itself. These apps are designed to run natively on the operating system of the device such as iOS or Android. Native mobile apps are faster, more reliable, and offer offline capabilities.
Cross-platform Mobile Applications : This type of app works across platforms using a single code base which makes it compatible to run on different operating systems. A cross-platform app can be written using different programming languages, but it’s compiled to run like a true native application running directly on the device’s OS. It’s easy to build and maintain cross-platform apps.
Progressive Web Applications : PWAs present an alternative approach to traditional mobile app development by avoiding the need for app store delivery and installations. They are cheaper, more secure, faster, and easier to develop. They operate via a browser, but act like native apps, and provide users an “app-like” experience by leveraging browser capabilities.
An expert development partner can help businesses in choosing the right platform for their specific needs, considering factors such as the app's features, target audience, and budget.
Considerations for building a scalable mobile app infrastructure
A scalable mobile application has the ability to accommodate the growing number of users quickly and manage the increasing workloads. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when building a scalable architecture for your mobile app.
Factors influencing the cost of mobile app development
Partnering with an expert development team can help businesses to build high-quality mobile apps that bring tremendous cost savings and operational efficiencies to their business.

Fingent’s approach to mobile app development
Fingent’s mobile application development process takes into account the unique app requirements of your business, platform and OS specifications, adoption of scalable tools, technologies, and trends, in-app security, compliance, and other critical factors that make your app fully functional and responsive.
Our process covers all the key stages of mobile app development from ideation to post-launch monitoring.
#1 Ideate: Derive the app idea by analyzing the demographics, motivations, expectations, and behavior patterns of the potential app users.
#2 Assess Feasibility : Assess the technical feasibility, strategies, and ideas for developing and launching a mobile application.
#3 Wireframe: Wireframing (detailed sketching) of the envisioned app to refine the idea and organize all the essential components.
#4 Prototype: Create working prototypes and mockups of the application for stakeholders to share their feedback and suggest changes.
#5 Design : Create multiple variations of the app screens to get a clear direction for visualizing the final product.
#6 Develop : Core phase of the application development process, where the actual development takes place.
#7 Test : End-to-end testing of the mobile app for validating user acceptance, performance, load balancing, UX, and QA.
#8 Launch : Publish the mobile app to the app store or launch it internally within the organization (based on your needs).
#9 Support : Provide ongoing support and plan regular app maintenance to fix bugs and enhance user experience.
Enterprise mobile app development case studies
1. Native mobile app for traveler safety
We developed a native Android mobile app for a real-time safety measurement and rating platform that enables travelers to gauge their personal safety level at any moment, from anywhere.
2. VR-integrated mobile app for a university
A leading university in the United States wanted to make their programs and courses more accessible to students from the underprivileged areas of the state. They wanted to develop a highly-interactive mobile app that could help students pursue learning and explore career paths without complications.
