App Development Technologies

iOS App Development

The development of native iOS apps requires deep knowledge of the Xcode development environment and the Swift programming language. Our iOS app developers have been working with these technologies and languages for years and can therefore guarantee professional programming of native iOS apps in the enterprise environment. Together with you, we develop a coherent concept based on the idea before we start programming your iOS app. Our portfolio ranges from the development of specific apps for the iPhone, iPad or the iWatch regardless of the use in the B2B or B2C environment. We love the challenge and develop native iOS apps with passion. Our iOS developers are looking forward to every project, no matter whether large or small, simple or complex!

Android App Development

Android is an operating system that most producers are using. From the wealthy to a commonplace man, thanks to price range phones, everybody has got entry to the internet and smartphones. We ensure our Android apps are available, providing complete usability.

Mobile Backend Engineering

Depending on which method you use to create your app, you should not forget to create clear structures so that your app can work properly in the end. However, if you encounter technical difficulties, take a look at your wireframe again and think about what you could do differently.

QA and Testing

To make sure your app is working properly, you should do more than two tests. There are some great platforms for doing these tests. These platforms will help you optimize the result of your app. Android makes this work easier for you, while iOS takes a more controlled approach. Both have their pros and cons, but ultimately you have to squeeze yourself through this step to get your app to market.

Native Applications

These apps are developed with the help of tools and languages that are supported by appropriate platforms (XCode and Objective C for iOS apps, Eclipse, Android Studio and Java for Android, Visual Studio and C # for Windows). Native apps only run on the target platforms.

Hybrid App Development

As the name suggests, such apps are a combination of the two "pure" forms and an attempt to combine the better of two worlds. Hybrid apps are based on web technologies such as HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, but run in a webview container, are packaged as native apps and can, therefore, access native APIs and functions from the operating system.

Technology Stack


For macOS or iOS, the best option is to do it in Swift. The most used programming languages are over 20 years old. But that which at first sight can be considered a disadvantage is a great advantage. Why? Because it is a language adapted to the needs we currently have.

Objective C

Objective-C is much less compromising with errors, has a complicated syntax and also offers certain concepts that are complex for programmers that come from other languages. However, the main libraries for iOS are written with Objective-C.

React Native

React Native is one of the most fashionable technologies at the moment. When developing an app in React Native, the code we write is the same for the Android and iOS versions. However, if not handled well, it could ruin the whole development process.


The strength of flutter is that it has a single codebase which can be utilized to build apps for mobile, web and even desktop. It’s an open source platform while it’s a primary method to create apps for fuchsia.


Xcode is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) of Apple that can be used to develop applications in several languages. Specifically and among others, it allows the creation of apps for iOS mobile devices, such as iPad, iPhone or iPod, something that we are expert at Appstudio.


Java is an object-oriented programming language created in 1991 and published in 1995 by Sun Microsystem (acquired by Oracle in 2010), with the intention that programmers write the code only once and execute it on any device.

Android Application Development

We, Appstudio, are a web agency with a focus on programming Android apps. We offer our services to customers who are looking for a reliable and competent partner for the development of native Android apps in the North American region, but are also available to companies from all over the world as a professional digital mobile agency for Android development. Our Android app developers are very familiar with the technologies required for native Android development such as Android Software Development Kit (SDK), Java, Android Security Architecture, etc. and can thus guarantee a successful project process. We attach great importance to the care, quality and documentation of your Android app. Our android programmers can draw on many years of experience. When reaching previously defined milestones, you will receive the intermediate status of the Android app development in the form of so-called APK files. These can be loaded and tested in the developer mode of your Android device.

Android Studio

Android Studio is set of tools for the rapid creation of applications in Android. The interesting thing about Android Studio is that it automates some functions so that mobile developers can concentrate on the purest design of a native application.

Material Design

Material Design is an Android-oriented design language created by Google, supporting onscreen touch experiences via cue-rich features and natural motions that mimic real-world objects. Designers optimize users' experience with 3D effects, realistic lighting and animation features in immersive, platform-consistent GUIs.

Android Kit

SDK is the acronym for “Software Development Kit”. The SDK brings together a group of tools that allow the programming of mobile applications.


Java is an object-oriented programming language created in 1991 and published in 1995 by Sun Microsystem (acquired by Oracle in 2010), with the intention that programmers write the code only once and execute it on any device.


Kotlin is a statically typed programming language, that is, it is the virtual machine that infers the type to the variables and, therefore, does not have to be specified. It is a language that runs under the Java Virtual Machine, so it has the same performance as Java, without penalizing this aspect at any time.

Mobile Backend Engineering

When we use a mobile application we ask for information continuously, it does not matter if the app is for information search, a game or a social network. This implies that a part of the app (the Backend), has to be able to find and access the information we request. The process of searching for data is not easy, since these are stored in large databases (in the plural), which are also protected so as not to expose what is called sensitive information in our area. At this point, a well-designed Backend must be able not only to find the precise information that the user requires, but also to access it securely.

Python DJango

It is a highly recommended web system that energizes quick improvement and spotless and sophisticated structure. It is the only framework that “by default” comes with an active management system, ready to be used without any configuration


Powerful empires have been made with PHP, such as Yahoo and Facebook. PHP is a well-known open source language, appropriate for web advancement and that can be installed in HTML. It is popular because a large number of web pages and portals can be created with PHP.

Node JS

NodeJS is an open source JavaScript (which is why the JS flag is included) that is designed to generate highly optimized applications. Taking advantage of the V8 engine allows Node to provide a server-side runtime environment that compiles and executes codes at incredible speeds.

QA and Testing

Quality confirmation and persistent testing are the central focuses that make any application fruitful and prominent among customers. The science behind the QA tests is to precisely recognize the nature of the product so as to guarantee that the product fills in true to form to work consistently. By utilizing quality confirmation tests all through the application improvement process, we set aside time and cash after execution. Blunders in corporate application can cause framework power outages, missing information and correspondence disappointments. Here at Appstudio we guarantee that the application will work precisely as it should work. There's no safety buffer.

Our App Development Approach

Native App Development

Native apps are written specifically for the respective operating system. In the case of Apple smartphones this is iOS, in the case of Android smartphones it is Android. This ensures that all interfaces to the hardware work consistently and without errors. The result is a high-performance, intuitive app specially developed for the respective operating system.

Hybrid App Development

Hybrid apps or also called cross-platform apps run in a kind of container on the respective operating system. The app is developed in just one programming language, mostly Javascript. Theoretically, the one-time programming of the app is sufficient, which then runs on both operating systems without major adaptation? The market for hybrid apps is currently changing rapidly. New approaches are constantly emerging, while other approaches are disappearing from the market.

Mobile App Development

Imagine you run a small agency, run a barber shop, a handicraft business or are even just a "one-man show" - and you have your company app. With this you draw customers, employees or business partners to your attention. Because native, mobile business apps of small companies that are in the Windows Phone, iTunes and Google Playstores are still not widely used - at least in some countries.

Why is that? Especially in times when everything has to be mobile and chic? Few companies fear the cost of development, however, it’s a fact that the implementation of modern technologies fetch more revenue, better brand image, and ease of doing business. Mobile app development is not the investment that caters profits in future but soon after the development and launching app, you will see positive and satisfactory turnovers.

Toronto is the largest city in Canada is most populous one due to its moderate weather and cosmopolitan culture. Great White North has provided every facilities in Toronto to turn it into the hub for technologies which has turned it into a new silicon valley of North America. AppStudio has been providing technology and IT related services here since the inception of new age. We have got what it takes to handle big enterprises as well as new startups.

The right app approach

The first bottom line is: When it comes to business apps, there are two worlds. One of these two worlds revolves around what companies expect when they imagine their app. If you believe the developers, it can be seen from the first customer conversation that customers have a significant need for advice from app specialists. Because the SMEs do not know where the possibilities and limits of apps are, and how many construction sites in the company you open up with the decision for an app.

The developing companies report this at least in agreement, Weptun and the Berlin app development company Creative Workline. Both companies have specialized in offering companies the creation and integration of native business apps for multiple platforms (Weptun: iOS, Android, Blackberry - Creative Workline: iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry).

Why an app at all?

"Of course there is often the hipness factor at the beginning" behind the request for an app, reports Martin Jr, Technical Director of the Toronto Creative Workline. “Many companies find it simply chic to run their app. We see it as our task to work out the concrete added value for your business from the many exciting ideas of the customers and to accompany them from conception, through development, to marketing and support."

Patrick Simons, Head of Business Development at Toronto-based startup, also had this experience. However, he adds: “If we talk to the companies for a longer period, we find that the original idea for the app did not only arise from a nice idea, but always from a concrete business need. Something isn't going as effectively in companies as it can be. The companies want to meet this need in a modern way, even if they don't know exactly what an app can offer. ”The goal can usually only be roughly formulated by customers: buzzwords such as increased productivity, increased flexibility and more focused workflows quickly fall.

A perfect fit on the phone

In addition to the topicality, simple business apps also offer other advantages: While web apps (which are created in HTML5, CSS and Javascript) are used via the browser and always appear different on the screen depending on the device type and display size, they are native apps matched to the respective devices and allow easy, comfortable and often also visually appealing access.

In this context, “native” means that the apps were created based on the official development tools and platform providers. In the case of Windows Phone, this is Visual Studio, for Apple it is the Xcode program, for Android Eclipse. However, developers do not have to go this route: AppStudio, for example, uses its development tool, which makes it possible to use the JavaScript programming language to create native apps (what that will be, more on that later) for various platforms and smartphone / tablet models to create.

No matter which form the programmer chooses: accompanying the tools, the platform providers provide guidelines that provide the developers with guidelines for the optical and technical design of apps. The approval processes, which then make the app officially accessible to everyone in the app shop, differ significantly from one another.

Possibilities of apps

Basically, apps allow data streams from existing and individual company applications to be integrated. There are also standard components for elements such as calendar, card or e-payment functions. The interfaces, services and components are again "developer-friendly" and compatible depending on the platform, as AppStudio and Creative Workline report. It can be said: Android is the most open, Windows Phone, on the other hand, has been the most closed so far, at least as far as third-party systems are concerned, but this should now change with Windows Phone 8.
