Native App Developers
Red C have a team of expert developers who build the highest quality apps using the phone's native functionality. 'Native build' means that the code is written in the same language as the operating system.
iOS App Developers
Originally, all iOS Native Apps were written in Objective-C. In 2014 Apple released Swift, which was designed to improve performance & address security concerns & is now the recommended development language for iOS apps. Apps can be written in Objective-C, a mixture of Objective-C & Swift, or purely in Swift. Our developers have extensive experience with each of these approaches.
Android App Developers
Java is the primary development language our developers use for Native Android applications. Android has a wide range of screen sizes from small screen phones to large "phablets" such as the Galaxy Note. We carefully design all our apps to ensure they look great on all devices. We follow google's 'Material Design' guidelines so our apps fit every device screen perfectly.
Hybrid / HTML5 App Developers
As we are primarily an app development company, when we speak about HTML5 apps, we are speaking of an app that you would be submitting to the Apple or Android app stores; these are also often referred to as Hybrid apps because they use HTML5 for the interface with a native wrapper.
Red C use ionic framework. Its layout & functionality is coded using this framework & then compiled using Cordova which allows us to turn our Hybrid HTML5 into either an iOS or Android app, ready for submission to stores.
Using ionic & Cordova, we are able to access some native features of the phone e.g. GPS location, camera, flashlight, accelerometer. It is the merging of these native features while using HTML5 as the development language to enable ‘write once, deploy to many’ that give this type of development the name and ‘Hybrid’.
Hybrid apps are ideal in situations where limited phone features are required and there is not a heavy performance load on the phone. As the technology powering this type of app continues to improve & devices get better in general, it is getting harder to tell whether an app is native or hybrid.
