How companies create mobile apps that look just as good on smart watches as desktops with low code tools

How companies create mobile apps that look just as good on smart watches as desktops with low code tools
One of the big challenges in mobile app development is creating professional looking apps for multiple devices. While app development tools have accelerated the process of app building, developers are often forced to use a template or structure. This results in apps not looking right on different devices or looking like the Toolset, rather than the polished and professionally branded apps the company wanted to create.

According to Malcolm Carroll, Director, Bluefinity International, while the look and feel of a business app is the most important part of the business model for many companies, it’s one of the hardest things to get right.

Carroll says, “With so many devices and different operating systems to contend with, this is a complex problem for many companies and if developers are forced down the template route it doesn’t allow for creativity, which can be a big problem in an app market that is increasingly competitive.”

To help companies overcome this issue, the company last year launched Evoke, a rapid app development platform, which allows users to develop and deploy high quality, professional apps.

One of its key benefits is that the system allows users to view how the apps will look on any device in real time as a WISIWYG rendition, giving an exact representation of how the app will look on the devices. This display dynamically adapts if developers change their design space, surface area or select a different operating system such as iOS, Android or Windows.

It also has additional viewing modes which allow non-adapting visualization, block view and list views to help users of all levels of expertise and experience build business apps with their desired look and feel.

It’s single design structure enables companies to quickly build user interfaces, define and manage data from different databases, and at every step, there is guidance available to help them. It also offers UI widgets and dynamic screen adaptations to support the deployment of apps across all major platforms and devices, from a single design and code set.

Major devices including the iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows phones and tablets, plus Windows, Linux and Apple desktop are supported, and its single user interface design can be adapted for multiple screen sizes and operating systems ensuring apps are presented as optimum visual displays.

Malcolm Carroll added, “By using the right tools, organisations are free to build the apps their customers want. The point and click functionality to select from hundreds of widgets and component options means all companies can now build sophisticated business apps in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.”
