Mobile Application Development
Mobile technologies have become an important platform to conduct business, generate leads and support operations. Mobile platforms are changing very rapidly, as new devices, uses and operating systems have been introduced by the market.
Although these platforms present radical change in the industry, we see these changes as an organic extension of the web technologies that we have focused on since 2000. Not to be side-tracked by the temporary trends, we've focused our expertise on the clean, standards based, Open Source technologies. We've developed techniques to protect previous technology investments, using web technologies - not specific, proprietary languages and technologies offered by vendors.
With our experience building standards-based web sites, our track record for customer service, and our involvement in the Open Source community, we are able to offer Mobile Application Development services as a natural extension of our business.
Our approach to to mobile application development is as follows:
Our past experiences include T-on-Time mobile and T-on-Time desktop. See mobile application development on our blog for more examples.
Leverage existing web technologies and infrastructure as much as possible.
Standards based technologies favored, including XHTML/HTML5/CSS with media-specific style sheets
Open, accessible, Open Source approach
Android Market and App Store used as a delivery and marketing mechanism vs. complete reliance upon them.
Use of Android Web Views, "hand-held" CSS styles sheets, and Adobe Air to create real apps while retaining code re-use from existing site features.
Avoid relying on frameworks or code generators beyond the traditional development environments offered by each vendor. This keeps our customers independent and insulated from rapid changes in technology.
