Our mission is to enable everyone to be able to create beautiful apps. If you are a developer, you don’t need to waste time on UI. Just pick your app starter from Enappd and jump-start your development.
A collective experience of several app development agencies says that the majority of the app development is a repeat process. This is especially relevant in today’s age where startups are often found building an ‘Uber for something’, or an ‘Instagram of something’. Even the apps which are not exactly clones are actually using similar components in them. With the growing rise in app-based startups, it is imperative for developers to use a modular way of app development which costs least time and money. That is where app templates/starters come in.
An app template is simply the UI of the app made in a particular language. This can be Android, iOS or hybrid technology. A starter, on the other hand, includes features more than UI, e.g. A Taxi booking app which allows you to create a booking and accept booking on the Driver side, is not just a template, it is a starter.
Following are the major advantages of using an app template from Enappd Store:
- Cheaper — You save thousands of dollars spent in UI development. This is a crucial phase where a majority of startups end up spending most of their time and money. Designing a feature from scratch is not worth if you can just pick the feature off the shelf in a fraction of the price
- Faster — You save weeks (if not months) of time which you would otherwise spend on designing and developing your app’s UI. Faster time to market is often the deal maker for an app startup.
- Keep your team smaller — If you are an early-stage startup, and the co-founders are not developers, it is not wise to hire separate developers for UI designing, and then UI development on different devices. Using a hybrid app (same technology for both iOS and Android) halves your problem, but you would still love to have an off-the-shelf template. This way you can jump to feature integration directly and keep your team smaller
- Standard and Bug-free — One of the biggest advantages of using Enappd’s app template is the standard feature and code structure. It is often found that the founding team develops the app with whatever they know. This results in a badly written (although working) code. Instead, you can purchase an off-the-shelf code written with proper standards, and mostly bug-free. You cut costs, save time and get better quality code.
- Standard features — Other than great code standards, you get standard features already working and device tested in Enappd templates. For example, tinder card format has been a popular layout for the past many years. Creating the layout on your own from scratch is not worth if you can just pick it up from an app template, such as Ionic 4 Full App.
Imagine you are set out to build an ‘Uber for something’, and you get the full app UI off the shelf. You can then plug in your logic, your product, and your back-end into the app and get it ready for the app store. This way you save a ton on your development cost.
At Enappd we build app templates using ❤, also there is a lot more to find out about Enappd. So, let’s dive right in:
The process followed at Enappd is SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). It consists of the following activities:
- Planning: The most important parts of software development, requirement gathering or requirement analysis is usually done by the most skilled and experienced software engineers in the organization. After the requirements are gathered as per the market research, a scope document is created in which the scope of the project is determined and documented.
- Implementation: The software engineers start writing the code according to the requirements documented.
- Testing: This is the process of finding defects or bugs in the created Template.
- Documentation: Extensive setup and usage documentation for major starters is provided along with the product.
- Deployment: The app template is made available on Enappd store after it gets approved in review for release by another senior developer from a different team.
All these frameworks are best at their own. While choosing a framework for your cross-platform app development, you need to analyze many factors like budget, time, application size, platforms, and so on.
Hybrid apps have been the sensation in recent years and for a good reason. With their ease of development, powerful performance and versatile usage possibility, Hybrid apps beat Native apps at many frontiers.
Since we are dealing with app starter that uses lots of ever-changing technologies like ionic, react native, etc. and their dependencies, it becomes imperative for us to ensure that the starters remain bug-free for a long time. Changing dependencies have always caused issues to developers, and it is almost impossible to keep track of every changing dependencies, even with npm or yarn. To make sure we keep the starters bug free, we have implemented an Automated Test Routine using Jenkins Server and Continuous Integration (CI) methodology. In simple words, our server will test the products Every Day, yes, every day. And it will report to us and all website users in real-time if the starter is passing the test. Amazing, right? Following image displays the process in a nut-shell
We have implemented this to assure our users that our products are built with the highest quality standards, and changing technology effects are being tested regularly.
How can I believe it is a valid test ?
We display a build passing image in the PRODUCT STATUS widget, right next to product description. It looks something like this
This is the same notation every major code repository on Github uses to show their build status. E.g. REACT NATIVE uses the same process to display the status of their Github repository.
Automated build testing ensures:
- The code clears all linting criteria
- The starter code is bug-free
- The starter code is able to create a Store Deployable Android APK
- Users and Enappd developers get real-time information of the product status so that a bug-free product can be maintained
iOS 6, X tested
However, all our products are also tested for Android M, N, O, P version as well as iOS 6, 10.
