Why Build an App?
App = Application
You may have heard the word ‘App’ recently in the news or in a conversation amongst friends. The word ‘App’ is just short for ‘Application.’ An Application is a software program designed to perform a specific set of tasks. In other words, an ‘App’s’ purpose is to make the user’s life easier.
Our focus is on Mobile Apps
Apps come in all shapes and sizes, but our product’s focus is specifically on Mobile Apps. Mobile Apps are software programs that run on Mobile Devices. Those Mobile Devices include Apple’s iPhone ® and phones built on Google’s Android ® Operating System. Our Apps run on both the iPhone ® and Android ® powered devices, the two most popular types of Smart Phones in the market today. Combined they account for 70% of the Mobile Marketshare.
You build your own App
Our service allows you to build your own iPhone ® or Android ® App on our site with no need to program anything. The end product will be a fully stand-alone App that is branded for your business. It would be the same as if you hired a custom App developer to build an App for you, just at a fraction of the cost.
How can an App help your Business?
Mobile Apps also offer a unique opportunity for your businesses to reach your consumer base. Some of the key benefits are listed below:
In short, having a mobile presence can help your business grow and is affordable on even the tightest advertising budget.
|Creation of an App Model
|The applications discussed here are not necessarily Triple Bottom Line project objectives. Rather they are “gedanken” applications, applications which Triple Bottom Line should be able to support.The objective is to sketch out the applications in sufficient detail to understand how they might best be implemented, and then give a rough proof that they could be built on top of Triple Bottom Line with reasonable likely performance. Consideration of the need to serve these model applications should also force an appropriately simple design.
It should be possible for a node to participate in more than one of these activities at one time, without any unintended leakage of information from one to another.
The Model Applications
A first analysis of the model applications listed above shows all of them using the common elements set out below.
As mentioned above, it should be possible for a user to run more than one Triple Bottom Line application simultaneously, without unintended leakage of information from one application to another.
It is highly desirable that it also be possible to pass information from one application to another in a controlled way.
If you’d rather, the Triple Bottom Line team can build a native app for you with four standard features for $950 and submit it into the Apple App Store or Android Market. Fill in the quote form to explore your options.COMPANIES
