Apple’s iPhone launched in 2007 and since that date they have rewritten the rules on far more industries than most realize. The phone changed the cell phone industry (telecommunications), gaming, music and eventually video (with AppleTV), purchasing and transactions and more. The phone also provided a hardware platform that businesses could leverage to build applications that could serve their business, clients and prospects in a handheld device.
Since the launch, the iOS family has grown and refined itself into a powerhouse with a 43.6% (Late 2015) U.S. market share, with more than 1 billion iPhones sold – the platform is not going away. iOS application development has changed significantly since the initial launch and first generation SDKs that provided an interface for developers to create custom applications. Our teams first began working with the iOS SDK back in 2009; which was a big after the OS platform exited its first beta run. The coding was all done in Objective-C with some elements coded in C and C++ and as the SDK changed – our teams adopted other languages, the largest came with Swift in 2014.
iOS application development leverages the native coding language of the iOS device and provides access to build complex and native application for iPhone, iPad and more. Our team has extensive experience in developing iPhone application – both for consumer consumption and business application models.
iOS Application Development
iOS application development focuses on the usage of the iOS family of products. Our iOS developers currently provide development for iPhone and iPad; primarily focusing on business applications. The iOS SDK allows developers to connect to a massive library of software and hardware to build applications that can offer a variety of features that help businesses.
Our team has helped build a number of iOS specific applications as well as managed the hardware acquisition and ongoing support. One specific solution was a comprehensive training platform that leveraged as many as 500 iPads at once to engage, educate and interact with audience members. The level of customization for natively programmed iOS applications is extensive and allows the concept of applications to run extremely deep; while still providing flexibility to connect to third party resources and the internet.
Most see the iPhone as a device for texting, phone calls, checking email and playing games. We see the entire family as an opportunity to build solutions that integrate levels of value that could not be recognized with other technology solutions. Field operations, wireless connectivity, images, video, databases, authentication and more give us a powerful tool set to build applications that create tools for business that can improve efficiency, timing and more.
If you are a business that needs a field solution, mobile system or handheld device – our team can help determine the best solution for your specific need. From oil fields in Texas, Doctors and Nurses completing interactive CE courses and Foodies in So Cal, our teams have helped redefine how technology can create a competitive edge.

It should come as little or no surprise that iOS developers are in very high demand. This has been driven by the massive success of the App Store and the sheer number of downloads and revenue that is generated through in-app purchases.
