Cross-platform development techniques have become increasingly popular for creating mobile apps, primarily since it avoids creating a completely separate app product for each app store - what's not to like in that?

Using the programming for a single app its possible to bridge the gap to publish across Android, iPhone and Windows Phone platforms.

Your app will be available to over 95% of smartphone users.

So when necessary we can still create your app in Native iPhone, Android and Windows Phone programming, but it may also be possible to take advantage of cross-platform programming based on web technologies.

This can result in a reduced budget and timescale for development

Talk to us about these options and whether they are possible for your planned objectives.

 

Case Study - The Deepdene Trail

A cross-platform app, creating a single product for iPhone and Android mobile, and iPad and other tablets

The Deepdene Heritage Trail is a brand new walking trail in Surrey, just a 15 minute stroll from Dorking's town centre.

Ground work on the Deepdene Trail in Dorking Surrey progressed throughout 2016, with the development of the app and intepretive elements for the trail also created during that time.

Working with the team at Mole Valley District Council and Arc Heritage meant frequent trips on site in Surrey to plan out the information and images to be included in the app.

The app included a trail map, audio, video and specially developed 360 virtual reality views, providing a glimpse of how the gardens would have appeared during their heyday.

For kids out on the trail we added gamification to the app, creating activities for ages 4-7, or ages 8 and up. This scored kids against ten challenges along the trail locations toward a digital prize on completion.

This project was very much a partnership working closely trail owners Mole Valley District Council and with experts from Arc Heritage, who produced the stunning digital reconstructions of the Deepdene house and gardens.

All aspects of the app were delivered on-time and within budget, in advance of the trail grand opening.

The Deepdene Trail is a Heritage Lottery Funded project.
