Go Faster with LANSA

LANSA has been speeding the productivity of professional developers for over 30 years. We help you deliver enterprise-grade applications faster than before because you can build mobile, web, cloud, and desktop apps from one powerful platform.

The Many Faces of Mobile App Development

Deciding whether to invest in mobile apps is simple – the answer is yes! Determining which type of mobile app to build is more complicated because there are many options, each with its own sets of pros and cons. In addition, being able to answer why the app is being built, who is it for, is integration with existing systems and databases required and more all play into your decision-making process.

In a recent webinar my colleagues hosted, they talk about the different types of mobile applications. David Brault, LANSA Product Marketing Manager said, “What we need to realize is there is an inherent trade-off or a sliding scale between the user experience and how much money and how much time is required to deliver different types of mobile applications.”

Four Types of Mobile Applications

  1. Responsive Web Apps – A web design approach that makes web pages render well on a variety of devices and window or screen sizes.
  2. Progressive Web Apps – Also called a Single Page Application; both are based on a responsive web design architecture but delivers a more “app-like” UX.
  3. Hybrid Mobile Apps – A native app container that executes web apps inside the shell, allowing native device integration via JavaScript.
  4. Native Mobile Apps – A locally installed software program that is developed for use on a particular platform or device.

If mobile app development is in your 2019 plans, I encourage you to watch the on-demand webinar. You’ll learn:

  • the difference between responsive web apps, progressive web apps, hybrid mobile apps, and native mobile apps.
  • the pros and cons of each mobile app option in terms of application functionality and developer skillsets.

Lastly, the webinar includes a demonstration of LANSA’s low-code development platform. You’ll see how quickly you can build a useful enterprise-grade mobile app using an intuitive platform. Who doesn’t want to learn how to reduce the complexity of cumbersome mobile app development?
