App Development

AWARD WINNING PHILADELPHIA APP DEVELOPMENT COMPANY

WHY CREATE AN APP?

Many businesses seem to feel that getting an app is a modern-day mobile requirement. And, they are probably right. Time spent with mobile continues to grow at a rapid pace and now exceeds time spent watching television, largely due to apps. In fact, more than four-fifths of time spent with mobile is spent in apps, rather than on mobile websites or the many other functions that your smartphone can do for you.

ON-LOCATION OR OFF-SHORE APP DEVELOPMENT

There are certainly advantages to developing an app in the USA and using off-shore developers as well. At Purplegator, we can provide you with both domestic and off-shore app development. Or, we can provide a hybrid approach.

We share office space with a team of domestic app developers who do award-winning work. Use them and you’ll be able to talk directly to the people that are actually doing the work. There will also be no cultural or language barriers and you’ll be able to visit personally with the people doing the work if you’d like to.

Of course, the greatest advantage of using off-shore app development teams is cost. When you choose Philadelphia-based Purplegator as your app development company, you’ll get the advantage of having a knowledgeable American project manager, even though the actual coding may be done off-shore.

APP MARKETING: THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN JUST APP DEVELOPMENT

Many businesses check off the box and develop an app, then learn that it is very expensive to maintain and attract downloads. Putting all of the money into development and having nothing left for marketing is a losing proposition.

The app development strategy team at Purplegator won’t let you do that. We know that for an app to be successful, it needs consistent upgrades and features to increase stickiness. We’ll make sure you budget for that. And, we’ll develop an ASO (App Store Optimization) strategy to make sure that your app gets noticed and stands out from the horde of over two million apps residing the Apple iPhone and Google Play stores.

AWARD WINNING APP DESIGN

We don’t like to brag, but yeah, our team has won some awards for app development. But, that’s not really the goal. The goal is to provide your business with a cost-effective app development that works well today and is set up to scale in the future as you continue to enhance it.

The Gators will be there for you every step of the way, from the initial understanding of the pain that your app will solve for customers to the marketing plan to increase downloads and enhance the stickiness of the app. Most important, we’ll listen to feedback given by your customers, because only by acting on it will your app be as good as it possibly can be.
