Cross-Platform App Development Services

At Idea Maker, we offer high-quality cross-platform mobile app development services that give you the best of iOS and Android.

Cross-Platform App Development Services We Provide

With ample experience in cross-platform mobile app development, our expert designers and developers are dedicated to providing clients with top-notch products and an exceptional level of service.

API Integration

For complex developments, your mobile app will require third-party plugins and API integrations. At Idea Maker, we have access to an extensive library of add-ons to fortify your application with solid functionality, meeting your requirements.

Cross-Platform

We use Google's Flutter for cross-platform mobile app development, meaning we can simultaneously build iOS and Android applications for the price and time of one. This is an excellent option for businesses that want maximum exposure at a cost-effective rate.

Hybrid Development

Hybrid mobile apps combine a mobile device's native technology with online languages such as HTML5. At Idea Maker, we can develop hybrid mobile applications that fuse the accessibility of browser-based software with native functionality.

Native Development

If you require a mobile app for one specific device, such as iOS, Idea Maker has you covered. We provide native development services that allow you to take advantage of powerful onboard processing capabilities and device features. Native development is an excellent option for technical applications.

Payment Processing

Through our intelligent API technology, we can implement multiple payment processing methods for your customers to use on your app. This increases trust between you and consumers, as applications with only one payment portal are viewed as unsafe.

Sleek UI/UX

A refined user interface (UI) is key to an excellent user experience (UX) which is crucial for keeping consumers engaged. That's why, as Idea Maker, our team of specialist designers takes extra care to ensure your application's UI is well polished and suitable for development.

Custom Cross-Platform App Development

Leveraging our team’s knowledge of app development and access to intelligent cross-platform technology, we can effectively build mobile apps that seamlessly function across both iOS and Android. Our custom cross-platform app development service essentially gives you two apps for the price of one, as we’re able to recycle the same code base across multiple platforms.

Custom Cross-Platform App Design

Our mobile app designers can implement customized design solutions, integrating your brand and required functionality together perfectly. As a result, we’re able to provide visually stunning mobile app designs that appeal to users, compliment your brand, and adapt to mobile device themes.

Cross-Platform App UI/UX Design

User interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design are integral to the success of your cross-platform mobile app. This type of design determines how users will interact with your app and, therefore, how their overall experience will feel. Fortunately, we have a team of professional and experienced UI/UX designers at your disposal, so you can rest assured that your app can give users a smooth experience.

Cross-Platform App Maintenance and Support

At Idea Maker, we acknowledge that even after development is complete, our work is not finished. Because all mobile apps will run into bugs at some point, despite the quality of development, we provide post-release maintenance and continuous support options to ensure your cross-platform app is always operating as it should.

Full Functionality

A common misconception is that, when developing a cross-platform mobile app, you’re forced to compromise on functionality. However, with the right know-how and development frameworks, this is not the case, as cross-platform mobile apps allow you to enjoy full functionality across multiple devices.

Increased Visibility

If your app is only available on a single app store, you’re missing out on thousands of potential users who utilize other platforms. Thanks to cross-platform app development, you can easily increase your market coverage and maximize your app's visibility by having it available across multiple stores.

Cost-Effective

If you opt to build two native apps that utilize different code bases, you’re going to be paying a high price. Cross-platform app development, on the other hand, uses frameworks that utilize the same codebase across multiple platforms, meaning you actually get two apps for the price of one.

Fast Development Time

Requiring only one code base, cross-platform apps facilitate quicker development times. This means you can have your mobile app fully developed and ready for public consumption without having to wait for a far-away deadline.

Cohesive Branding

Cohesive branding in cross-platform app development ensures consistent visual elements, messaging, and user experience across platforms. It strengthens brand recognition, professionalism, and credibility. Users benefit from a seamless and familiar interface, enhancing their experience and ensuring that brand messaging is clear and consistent.

Simplified Maintenance

With cross-platform apps, the maintenance process is simple and hassle-free, as you only need to update and deploy changes to one codebase. This means you can provide users with bug fixes and new features swiftly, keeping your user base happy and your app well-maintained.

Technologies Used in Cross-Platform App Development

At Idea Maker, we use cross-platform-specific development technology to build multi-platform apps that use the same codebase.

React Native Icon

React Native

React Native is an open-source framework for building mobile applications with JavaScript and React that provides a native-like user interface and performance by using native components. It allows developers to create cross-platform apps that can run on both iOS and Android devices, sharing a large portion of the codebase between platforms.

Flutter

Flutter

Developed by Google, Flutter is an open-source UI toolkit for building natively compiled applications across multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, and the web. It allows developers to write code once and deploy it to different platforms, providing a fast and visually appealing user experience with its customizable widgets and high-performance rendering engine. Flutter uses Dart, a modern programming language, for developing applications.

Cross-Platform App Development Process

1. Discuss

We begin our process with an in-depth consultation in which we determine your requirements and what you expect from us as a cross-platform app development company. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have about our development process and mobile development technology. By the end of our thirty to sixty minute conversation, we aim to have a clear understanding of your specifications.

2. Design

Then we pass your thoughts onto our specialist design team, who come up with several mockups for you to choose from. Our mockups are designed with functionality and user experience in mind, so you can rest assured that your cross-platform mobile application will appeal to the end-user. After seeing our designs, you may request any design changes and functional considerations to be made before moving forward.

3. Develop

After the design phase comes the development stage, where we take your chosen design and transform it into a functioning mobile application. We take care to marry refined design, focused on user interface and experience, with tangible features, making for powerful mobile applications. This is typically the longest part of the development process as we like to run thorough tests, ensuring a complete application upon delivery.

4. Deploy

Finally, once your cross-platform mobile app is fully developed, we deploy it to the iOS and Android app store. Deployment doesn’t mean the end of development. At Idea Maker, we strongly believe in the importance of post-release support. As a result, we work hard to maintain your mobile application and keep it bug-free after app store delivery.

Should I choose a cross-platform application over a native application?

It depends on your needs. Apps that present data, forms, or transfer information are great candidates for cross-platform apps, giving you two apps for the price of one. However, if your app requires intensive processing power or fast graphics like games, native apps are a better fit, as they can squeeze more performance from mobile devices.

Are cross platform applications more secure than native applications?

No, the security of your app depends on the methods and techniques employed by your development team. No development method is intrinsically safer than the other.

What types of applications are recommended for cross platform app development?

Applications that don’t require intensive performance or fast graphics. Apps focused on fetching, analyzing, presenting, or filtering data are perfect candidates for cross-platform development.

Which technology stack is used by Idea Maker for cross platform app development?

Most of our projects are developed in React Native, but we also work with Flutter. For servers, we use Linux, and we can write any necessary back-end code. We also work with Firebase and Django when applicable, amongst other technologies, making Idea Maker a highly flexible company.
