Native Apps (Chocolate Brownies)
Apps on the Apple & Google Stores
Publishing apps on the Apple and Google stores is a little more complex – but worth it if you want to reach a much wider audience
These Native Apps are brilliant for
Making your app available to everyone
Just direct them to their app store and they can search & download from there
Send push notifications to everyone who’s downloaded the app – or to those in a particular area or user group
Even more functionality
There are some functions only available in iOS and Android apps – including being able to offer QR and GPS based coupon systems – and plenty more.
Publishing your podcast
Auto feed your podcast directly to the app and then send a push notification to remind your subscribers it’s there. Keep them engaged with what you’re up to.
COVID safe working
Use the app to offer COVID safe food ordering, payment – then offer click & collect or table service.
Becoming a force for good
Using the app for your business and to support your local community or charities helps build brand awareness and trust.
How does it work?
Publishing an app on Apple & Android is more complex and involves additional costs paid directly to Google & Apple. We help you through the whole process.
We’ll help you see if your brilliant idea can be made into an app. Talking about things like the app’s purpose, what added value it will bring, functionality, loyalty and engagement.
If you’d like us to, we’ll build you a demo free of charge so you can see what your app could look like.
It might be that a Progressive Web App will be better for you or you need more than we can offer. Whatever happens, we’ll help you find a way to make things work.
Design & Build
There are many things that need to be taken into consideration when building an app for publishing on iOS and Android.
We’ll design and build your app taking these factors into account – whilst making sure it’s exactly on brand and doing what you want it to do.
We’ll be checking in with you throughout the build and checking you’re happy with it all before we go to publish.
Publish & Training
Publishing on Apple and Android can take up to 3 weeks. The fastest we’re managed is 2 days – the longest, 21 days. This is all dependent on Apple & Google and as much as we can chase, they go at their own speed.
When the app is in the publishing process we can’t make any changes but we can teach you how to use the content management system and how to manage it on the go – including sending push notifications.
If you want us to manage the app for you, we can do so on an ad hoc or retainer basis.
Once published, it usually takes a couple of days to appear in the Apple & Google stores. This is when to start the teaser promotional campaign for the app!
We can supply you with marketing templates, any icons we’re made for the app, QR codes and other ideas that have worked for other clients.
