So, how does this iOS app builder work?
We make it really simple to create an iOS app. The first step in the app development process is toTT pick an app that’s most like your idea, maybe you’re creating Snapchat for dog walkers? Tap the Snapchat icon and you’ll see all the features it uses.
Drag & drop features your idea needs from our library of over 500 (our research shows these make up 60% of the code used on all apps). Or give us a call and an expert will talk you through what’s worked well for other clients. Our team of mobile app development specialists around the world will customise your designs for you. You pick their location and how fast you want your app. And they can create any new features you like.
Can I create an iOS app prototype in 10 mins?
Yes. And even better, Builder Now is free. So you get to click through all the screens your iOS app needs in the time it takes to make a coffee. Then you’ve something amazing to wow investors, you can test user experience on your customers, iron out any bugs before committing any time or money. It’s a no brainer. We created Builder Now to remove the barriers that stand in the way of you creating your idea. Try it now.
iOS vs Android app – which is better?
Neither is better but each one has its own benefits. iOS has a closed ecosystem, which means you have to do things Apple’s way. You get security baked-in but things are a little more rigid for developers. Apple’s famous for their quality and user friendliness. Also most iOS users are running the latest operating system so their user experience will all be the same, this isn’t the case for Android.
However, there are more Android devices. We obviously build Android apps too and if you’d like your idea to work across platforms that’s simple (at Builder, you can add everything from web apps to wearables). Each platform has its own benefits. Chat through your options with our app design experts, for free.
Do I need a native iOS app (and what does native app mean)?
A native iOS app just means one built in a coding language native to the platform (at Builder, we use Swift for projects). It means your mobile app will work faster, load quicker and be available offline. It will feel more familiar to your users too. It’s best practice. And the only reason not to build a native iOS app is that if you’re not working with Builder, you probably have to have two teams starting from scratch.
We can build yours so it works perfectly on iOS and Android much faster and at the very highest quality thanks to our human-assisted AI (see below).
Why should I create my iOS app with Builder?
How do we create iOS apps that cost less than an agency, that are also higher quality? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Because we use an assembly line development process. The cost of common code is shared across our clients. And then your app is customised by a network of capacity partners around the world. These mobile app development specialists and our algorithm picks the best developer for your job (it’s tested them all first). We call this human-assisted AI.
Building an iOS app doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. No techie skills needed. We guarantee your price upfront. And you pay monthly so if we get it done quicker, you pay less.
Does it cost money to put an app on the App Store?
Yes, f you want to publish apps on the Apple App Store you’ll need a developer account which costs $99 a year. You can use Apple's App Store Connect to manage your apps on the Apps Store. This services is provided free by Apple.
