We are following an unique process for iOS app developments to make sure we work efficiently when developing and testing on top of iOS app development ecosystem. Even though it is unique, it is a flavor of our general project delivery process.
In high level this process pay special attention how app’s UI/UX is designed, development is done and testing is carried out to accommodate iOS specific requirements. Special verification process is carried out to assure screen layouts and navigations comply with Apple HCI recommendations.
During the development, delivery team verifies whether the device compatibility (in terms of different iOS devices such as iPhone 4,4S to 7, 7+ and OS versions) matches the client requirements and features, functionalities, SDKs and APIs used comply with Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines.
These special checks and verifications are the uniqueness of Fidenz Technologies iOS app development services compared to other vendors in the market.
We have delivered more than 40 native iOS applications so far and counting. The solution delivered vary from simple proof of concepts to complex high demand enterprise applications. Following are few technology areas we have used in delivering these apps
iOS provide comprehensive set of SDKs and APIs to build great applications but a successful app always have to be integrated with many different third party services to deliver best services and user experience to the end user. To make apps more versatile, we have integrated apps we develop with many different external systems. One of the most common external integrations is to integrate with payment gateways such as, PayPal or Authorize.net. We use Firebase & Urban Airship for Push Notifications so that the apps could leverage on delivering most relevant information at right moment to bring the attention of the end user to increase the effectiveness of the application.
Preferred method of iOS app deployment at Fidenz is to use Fabric.io. This minimize the hassle of finding and tracking iOS device IDs of users who would like to test and evaluate mobile apps prior to publish in the market. In addition to deployment of apps, Fabric provide error tracking and app usage statistics available to both developers and application owners.
