A Mobile application is an application that is native to a particular mobile device or its platform. It could be deployed on a smart phone, tablet or any other device in context of usage. It is essentially similar to desktop applications of the past, which needed to be installed on the device to access and run various web services.
However, there are possibilities that a mobile app completely uses device’s memory to run regardless of whether that device is connected to Internet. In this case, web services may not be used at all, while running the application
On the other hand, Mobile applications could also be completely running on the web but provide native framework and certain functionalities. In such cases, they are called hybrid applications.
Think Design has designed mobile applications in multiple domains such as Enterprise, E commerce, Entertainment, Education, Platform/ OS just to mention a few. Further, we have experience designing applications for Android, IOS platforms and for devices ranging from Tablets, Handhelds, Smartphones to Feature phones.
