The what, why and how of our work.
Single-page web apps can be really fast. When built responsively, they are wonderful to use on any size of device. They don’t care what platform you prefer (iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows). And web apps make your data available to your team anywhere there is an internet-connected device. Wonderful. But . . .
Web apps are great. But the speed of single-page apps, the availability on any device using any platform, and the “no wait” magic of real-time data is of little use if the interface is clunky, confusing and ugly. Who wants to struggle with an anger-inducing mess all day?
Your team members use a wide variety of hardware: iPad, Surface Pro, Dell, Pixel, iPhone, Galaxy Tab, iMac, Lenovo. I could go on, but you get the idea. In terms of screen size, we’ve got you covered through the technique of responsive design. The problem arises from the fact that all these devices run on a variety of platforms: iOS, MacOS, Android, Windows or Chrome OS.
The power of a web application is the fact that your information is available to you and your team anytime - anywhere. If you have an internet connected device, you expect to be able to access your data. The problem is that there are so many different sizes of internet connected devices.
Web apps are essential because key data is available to your entire team no matter where they are in the world. However, web applications tend to be slow. Constantly refreshing the page and waiting for it to load can become tedious in the middle of a busy day.
The Discover Christ’s Church App is designed for use at a meet-and-greet with the minister after each service for people new to the church. Christ’s Church averaged 4,000 in attendance and had a lot of first time guests each week. Hosts and hostesses would have iPads with the app pulled up in Kiosk mode (full screen mode). Guests could then be registered for one of the upcoming Discover Christ’s Church membership classes.
Keynote is presentation software made by Apple. The Keynote Store is a full featured e-commerce site for selling custom themes created to be used with the software. The site is designed to reflect the look and feel of Apple’s retail stores. This is accomplished through the use of clean, crisp content sections against wood, concrete and aluminum textures.
Have a great idea for an app? I'd love to build it for you. Give me a call and we'll work up a quote.
