Mobile Development


Clients come to us with their great ideas.

Whether it’s a start-up company or an internationally known brand, the KPDI team partners with clients to help bring ideas to life. If an idea isn’t fully cooked, we're happy to help with the ideation. We are well placed to do this as we’ve built apps of all kinds – to support campaigns, operational improvements or integrat3 with wearable devices. We have extensive experience developing localized apps and deploying in multiple countries and languages.

iOS & Android

We design and build both iOS and Android. We understand the nuances of each and the differences each platform brings to design and development decisions.

Hybrid or Native App? Whichever is Best.

There are two popular approaches to building a mobile app, with pros and cons for each. KPDI builds both hybrid mobile apps and native apps. We take a long-term view of how the app fits into a client’s strategy and will advise when it makes sense to use one approach over the other.

Hybrid apps are built using web technologies and then wrapped in a native mobile shell that makes it work on mobile devices. Because of this, hybrid apps can be developed faster and more affordably but with some limitations. It makes perfect sense to build certain apps this way – depending on the features and functionality needed.

Native apps use the native mobile language for the entire app. This means that one app must be built for iOS using its native language and a second app for Android using its native language – even though they may look like the same app. Since we’re building two apps, this takes longer and is more expensive. However, if features such as Bluetooth, maps, social media integration or cloud backup look likely for the app (immediately or in the near future), building two native apps will save time and money in the short and long run to build in any of these features. KPDI can help you build a mobile hybrid app as well. Using PhoneGap (Codova), Ionic, or Titanium.
