The Mackman technical specialists have the ability to provide the right app to suit your requirements.

App is an abbreviation for application and is a term that is widely ascribed to mobile applications although of course applications have been around since the time of some of the earliest commercial computers.

The term ‘app’  was made popular by Apple who introduced the apps store for the iPhone back in 2008 and nowadays, it seems as if every platform has its own app store.  Our specialists are able to support development of web apps and native iOS and Android apps for business use.  It is the requirements that will differentiate which app best suits your business.

Web Apps

Web apps are designed to run in a web browser (Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome etc) and therefore should run on any modern device capable of connecting to the internet.  With the right design and development web apps will inherit the  look and feel of a devices native applications but without the inherent costs of specific device development, distribution and ongoing maintenance.  Web apps may therefore offer a more cost effective approach over their native counterparts.

Native iOS and Android Apps

Native iOS (iPhone, iPad etc) and Android apps best suit a requirement for off-line access (where internet access is limited, intermittent or not available), push notifications (although we can achieve this with web apps too) and tighter device integration.


If this all sounds like gobbledegook (and this subject can get very technical) then tell us what you want to achieve and we will find the best solution for you.  Our plain speaking technical team will provide best advice and ensure that you understand the business decisions available to you.
