WHY DEVELOP AN IPHONE APPLICATION?
An application is a software application developed for smartphones. Through it you can communicate with mobile users in the manner of a website and geo-locate the user to adapt the information to its geographical position.
An iPhone app has advantages over mobile website. Indeed, after its download from the Apple portal, it allows immediate use of the application without offline. The user can find, then, on the Home screen of his iPhone a shortcut to the application.
Moreover, being developed using native code of the operating system, your app can use the functionality of the iPhone without any problems. The application will run directly into the unit's environment and ensure the best performance, including older versions.
Native apps also help generate notifications called "PUSH" very simply. This is message that your application sends to the user, even as the application is not started. These notifications are highly appreciated by mobile users.
Finally, a native application often provides a better experience for the mobile user. The interface is fully adapted to the device and makes navigation intuitive.
From a business perspective, the mobile application can offer versions "freemium". These trial versions offer limited functionality or with a limited usage time. You can thus attract mobile users and then offer them to pay for wider use.
