Services – Mobile Apps

Smartphone / Tablet Apps

Android Apps

The future path of the “Internet in your hands” – In the 2014, Smartphone / tablet internet technology were projected to be the biggest method of accessing the internet and it’s associated features, covering:

  • Social media
  • Emailing
  • On-Line Information / Functionality (http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/via Apps)
  • Controlling internet enabled appliances (http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/TV, Recorders, Central heating, Washing machines etc.)
  • Games
  • also just for browsing the internet

From a website point of view, this means it really needs to be Responsive in design / theme.  By responsive, we mean a website that adapts to the size of the device viewing the site, such as:

  • Desktops
  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Smartphones

As Android Mobile/Tablet operating system (http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/governed by Google, but specifically Android Open Source) tends to be at the lower end of the Smartphone market, it should see the largest increase in numbers of users over the coming years.  But price wise the likes of Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5 range compete extremely well at the top end of the market, so Android covers the whole price bandwidth of both Smartphones and Tablets.  Also to be noted was that in Q2 of 2014, ‘Android’ accounted for just under 85% market share of the worldwide smartphone market, See: IDC – Worldwide Smartphone Market Share.



Having an Android App is the perfect medium to engage your customers and also as an internal mobile office application, which can be used anywhere, such as at home, in offices, shopping, days out, in a warehouse or doing site surveys – all using pre-sync’d / downloaded data or live / real-time data via a WiFi or Mobile data network signal.

Smartphone Apps are normally a mixture of:

  • Interactive content
  • Bespoke functionality
  • Dynamic real-time data content
  • Static pages
  • Cloud based functionality
  • Local dynamic content
  • Social Network Links

We can develop Android Apps optimised for both Mobiles and Tablets which are written / developed to your own specification in Native Android Java using Eclipse ADT – Android / Eclipse ADT (http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/bundle) is using fully open source software, FREE-ly available (http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/via the Android Developers website).

If your app is fully bespoked / customised, you will get a complete copy of the source code, supplied on a CD – This means you are not tied in any way with regard to on-going charges or making modifications (http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/which can then be done either by yourself or any third party). 

To have this source code and the Android development environment (http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/Eclipse ADT / Java JDK / JRE) fully setup onto one of your PC’s, then this would normally be charged for, but this would be in the region of £50-£95 (http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn5.your-it-consultant.co.uk/http://cdn6.your-it-consultant.co.uk/depending on your IT setup / internet access).  Note: This is only needed if you want to make sure you have a working backup of the software and/or you will be making amendments yourself.

The way to proceed – Now…
