App Development Technologies

iOS App Development

Appstudio delivers native iOS app development. iOS is Apple's app platform. We develop for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and universal apps. Universal apps are applications that work on multiple types of devices. This can be especially effective when the app is relevant on multiple types of devices or when the context of use is difficult to predict. Because you can publish an iPhone or iPad app yourself in the portal, you immediately have a worldwide reach: the newest way of publishing. Ideal for the distribution of (print) books and games, where a good idea and a smooth technical development can quickly lead to a sought-after product. If the app is available in multiple languages, you can easily address the entire world. There is a separate App Store for each country, where you can serve the public in a customized way. Which apps have the greatest success? These are often the simplest, with a clear concept. Invest, network, stream, photograph, work efficiently, send messages - if you hear these keywords, you can probably immediately come up with a well-known app. But less well-known apps can also be true gems. We are especially a fan of the lovingly made children's apps, which provide hours of fun with colorful illustrations and original interactions. Our own educational apps and kids games are a nice addition to that offer in the App Store.

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.

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.

Android Application Development

Android is an operating system that is primarily developed for use with smartphones and tablets. It is even the most popular operating system for smartphones. The software is now also being used for televisions, smart watches, cameras, game computers and even cars. It is an open source platform. The meaning of this is that the underlying code can in theory be adapted and used by everyone. Nevertheless, it is actually seen as a Google operating system, due to the many changes and updates that the company releases for it. The high degree of adaptability ensures that Android is very popular and used on a large number of devices. Do you want to develop an Android app? This is probably a good idea. Android is the most used operating system. This means that the app immediately has a large range. At Appstudio we specialize in app development, which means that we have extensive experience in app development. Our multidisciplinary team knows how to develop the best Android apps with the latest tools and techniques. We can develop Android apps for all devices, such as Android smartphones, tablets, Google Home (Nest Hub Max), Android TV or smart watches.

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.

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 android developers can concentrate on the purest design of a native application.


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.

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.

Mobile Backend Engineering

The backend in a mobile application system is that centerpiece, which we also call the web server engine, which centralizes all requests made from mobile devices that need to write, collect data from a database, records, shipments, etc. The backend can be developed in several very diverse and different technologies. There are large mobile application development systems that are developed in different languages. For example, we have facebook that its backend is developed mainly with PHP; we have linkedin or paypal, that your backend system is implemented with the powerful and versatile node.js, etc. In AppStudio, we prefer to use the powerful node.js as a preference when implementing robust backend systems and for app development. Its versatility, efficiency and unlimited resources in the market, make it an optimal choice today for any mobile application system that wants to scale and have a long journey. Experience indicates that this language exceeds its objective. Either for mobile app development systems or for complex web page systems, which can scale in the future, removing the processing limitation. In addition, backend systems can be easily deployed in the cloud. From AppStudio, we use both large projects and small software projects such as Heroku or Amazon WebService to host these centralized systems.

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

Testing is the process of correctness of the quality of the (business) software program or a mobile app. The aim is to check whether the app meets the specific requirements, needs and expectations of the customer. In other words, testing applies the implementation of a system to find app errors, defects or glitches. The task of our team of testers is to find out the reasons for the failure of the application or product, which can then be corrected according to requirements. There are many reasons for defects in the software, for example the developer can make a mistake in the source code of the software or overlook a security leak. Any error in the app will produce incorrect results. When an error or defect occurs in the software application, there is a defect. This must be traced to remove the bug. If a bug develops in a part of the app, this must also be corrected. That rectified part is retested to confirm that it is compatible with the rest of the program.
