Custom Mobile Apps
Now, at this time and age, it’s pretty clear that businesses should develop their own mobile apps. Some apps empower mobile workers to communicate with customers or collaborate with other workers, partners, and vendors. Other apps allow customers to interact with, shop, and receive services from the company. Now let us look at whether you should use custom mobile apps or template apps.
The easiest route would be to use a template app and upload your designs from there. Many people actually use something similar for their websites. Template apps are like cookie-cutter frameworks which you can customize to some degree to produce an app. Some template apps require little or no IT or development skills at all. Due to the efficiency and easiness of template apps, a lot of companies will want to use these.
Choosing template apps may reduce the amount of time you spend on it. However, you sacrifice the flexibility and control of the app. A lot of businesses that choose to use a template app quickly sees how they will need more flexibility, scalability, data storage, and other features a template app can’t offer.
Custom Built Apps
A custom app developer creates custom apps. Custom apps are unique and can be highly specialized for the users that need it. They are generally much more efficient and productive, since they are designed specifically for the task at hand. Customization also usually means that the business retains more control over data security. This ability can be huge in terms of regulatory compliance. With a custom app, you can maintain control of things like workflow, data governance, and data access.
Though custom apps can take longer to develop, in the end the business has total control over the features and functionality, data, users, devices, and other aspects of managing a mobile app.
