An online presence is essential for any business nowadays. However, simply creating a website might not be enough, you might want to create an app for your business. It is very simple to come up with your own app since there are plenty of tools available, and many of them can be purchased at a low price (or even for free). Here’s what you should know before you choose one.
There are different types of app makers. For example, you could choose to create an app for your customers so you need a customer facing app maker. These apps are perfect for restaurants or retail stores. However, you might want to create a game app, and for this, you will need a game app maker.
Finally, there are also app makers that will help you build apps for your employees. Such an app is great if you want to enhance communication between your employees and increase productivity.
Types of apps
There are different types of apps that you can create. For example, you can choose a native app. These apps can be downloaded by users, but before they become available to the public you need to submit them to the publisher so they can get approved. You also have to decide whether you want to create an iOS app or an Android one.
There are also web apps which are available online. Basically, they are the mobile version of your website. The only difference here is that they require a certain coding platform such as HTML 5, CSS or Java.
Finally, hybrid apps are made using a coding platform and then they are later converted to an app format. They can be downloaded from app stores just like native apps.
