Functional Mobile Applications in Less Time

App Aplyca

Aplyca, a leading technology company, has a complete stack for cross-platform mobile development that includes design, search, content management and push notifications components, which allows the development of high quality mobile apps in a very short time.

Development Description

With a combination of React Native and Contentful, the app offers a toolkit that includes content, messaging, search and chat components, all in a cross-platform, multi-channel stack.

React Native technology allows the development of apps for multiple devices, (iPhone and Android), with a single code base. In addition, it can also be developed for web, which makes it even more accessible.

The toolkit includes reusable components that allow adding or removing functionalities according to the needs of each type of business. It is also compatible with various data sources and CMS systems, which allows customers who already use Contentful or other headless CMSs to have their application ready in a very short time.

Functional Characteristics

Among the application's features are the following:

  • Ability to integrate with push notification systems such as Firebase, AWS Pinpoint, AWS SNS and OneSignal, among others.

Each of these services offers an API to integrate with applications and online services, allowing push notifications to be sent to users on their mobile devices and web browsers.

Firebase is a mobile application backend service developed by Google. It offers a variety of features including user authentication, cloud storage and push notification integration, which allows messages to be sent to users on Android, iOS and web devices.

AWS Pinpoint allows you to send messages through multiple channels, including email, SMS and push notifications to multiple subscribers, including mobile devices and other channels.

OneSignal is a standalone service that provides an easy-to-use API to integrate with mobile applications and websites. The service supports push notifications for mobile devices, web browsers and email, and also offers features such as audience segmentation and audience analytics.

  •  Integration of push notifications with gRPC content sources, enabling a personalized user experience.

gRPC is a remote communication framework developed by Google. It is used to build distributed applications and enables communication between clients and servers across multiple programming languages and platforms. One of the main advantages of gRPC is its efficiency and speed, as it uses the HTTP/2 protocol for data transmission.

When push notifications are integrated with gRPC content feeds, developers can send real-time updates to users in a more efficient and personalized way.

This is made possible by their ability to efficiently transmit real-time data between server and client, enabling a highly personalized user experience. In addition, push notifications allow users to receive real-time updates even when they are not actively using the application.

  • Accurate searches through the integrated search tool.

Accurate searches return relevant and useful results for users. To achieve this, the integrated search tool must use advanced search and information retrieval algorithms, as well as accurate indexing of the application or service content.

For example, in an e-commerce application, an accurate integrated search tool would enable users to quickly find the products they are looking for, even if they only remember partial details about them.

  • User management management.

The ability of an application or service to manage and control user access. This includes creating and deleting user accounts, assigning roles and permissions, authenticating and authorizing users, and managing user profile information.

User management is essential to ensure information security and privacy, allowing developers and administrators to set security policies and control access to different parts of the application or service. This can help prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive user information.

  • Mobile component system-based design, which allows for rapid prototyping and proof-of-concept testing.

It is a design technique that involves creating a library of reusable components that can be used to build user interfaces more efficiently and consistently. Instead of designing each screen or function from scratch, designers and developers can use existing components to quickly build prototypes and proofs of concept.

This technique is based on the idea that many mobile applications have common elements, such as buttons, navigation bars, content cards, forms and other UI components. By creating a library of reusable components, designers and developers can save time and effort by not having to design each component from scratch.

In addition, it also allows for greater consistency in the application's user interface, which improves the user experience. By using standardized components throughout the application, users can quickly learn how to interact with and navigate the application efficiently.

  • Fully functional and optimized light and dark mode, allowing users to customize the visual experience.

This is a feature that allows users to choose between a light or dark color scheme for a mobile app's user interface. This can be beneficial for users who prefer a specific color scheme, as well as those who need to adjust the brightness of their device's screen to improve readability in low-light environments.

To implement light and dark mode in a mobile app, developers must create two different themes: one for light mode and one for dark mode. Each theme will include a set of colors and fonts to be used for user interface elements such as buttons, menus and backgrounds.

It is important that the light and dark mode are fully functional and optimized so that users can customize their visual experience seamlessly. This means that themes should be consistent throughout the application and the transition between modes should be smooth and seamless.

In addition, developers must consider the impact of light and dark mode on device performance and battery life. To minimize any negative impact, dark colors should be used in dark mode to reduce power consumption and animations and transitions should be optimized for efficiency.

  • Consistent brand image and improved user experience thanks to the implementation of Design System.

Implementing a Design System in a mobile application can significantly improve the user experience and a company's brand image. By using a consistent set of design guidelines, components and visual styles throughout the application, users can quickly become familiar with the user interface and learn how to interact with it effectively.

In addition, a Design System can improve the efficiency of mobile application design and development. Designers and developers can use predefined components and styles instead of creating them from scratch, which saves time and effort. It can also improve collaboration between design and development teams, as everyone works with the same guidelines and elements.

In terms of branding, a Design System helps maintain visual and brand consistency across a company's applications and platforms. Users can quickly identify brand colors, typography and visual styles in the mobile app, which helps improve brand perception and user confidence.

  • Speed in development times

The development time of the application is its most relevant feature. Thanks to its productive stack prototype, Aplyca is able to have a fully functional app for any organization quickly.
