1. Why is a native app more expensive than a progressive web app?
A native mobile app is more expensive because we are publishing it on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. This takes more time and effort in order to design the app for both platforms and follow more strict guidelines.
2. What is the major difference between the two?
Native apps are published on the app stores requiring users to download the app. PWA’s live on the web so no downloading is required. Currently, push notifications can’t be sent for PWA’s on iOS (iPhones).
3. Can I connect the app with my online store?
Yes. We can create a “Shop” tab that will redirect to your online store. However, it will cause the user to leave the app and be redirected to your online store.
4. What features automatically come with an app?
Our apps are completely customizable in terms of which features you would like to include. None of the features are required.
5. Can I add custom features?
Currently, the only features available are the ones listed on the home page. Please get in touch with us to discuss any custom features that you would like to add.
6. What are the steps involved in purchasing an app?
Once you decide whether you want a PWA or native mobile app, click get started under the respective option. You will be directed to a page where you can add it to your cart and checkout. Directly after checkout, you will be sent an intake form to provide us with your information and app specifications. You will also be sent a link to book a meeting with us for a 15 minute consultation call to go over next steps. As always, if you’d like to speak with a member of our team prior to checkout, please give us a call!
7. What is the turnaround time?
For PWA’s, we can have your app up in as little as 2-3 week. Native mobile apps typically take 4-6 weeks because you will have to set up a developer account which usually takes 14 business days for Apple to approve. We will go over all of this in the 15 minute consultation call.
8. What do I have to do to get my app published on the Apple App Store?
First, you will need to register your legal entity with Dun and Bradstreet to get a DUNS number. This typically takes around 5 business days. Next, you will need to register your organization for an Apple Developer Account. This typically takes around 14 business days for Apple to approve. We can provide you with step-by-step instructions and support on getting this all set up, but due to Apple’s strict guidelines, this is not something we can do on your behalf. Once, you get the Apple Developer Account established, we will be able to publish your app into your developer account.
9. What is the monthly fee for?
The monthly fee is for hosting your PWA or mobile app on the web or app stores, respectively. It is also for access to our intuitive dashboard that will allow you to send out unlimited push notifications, view analytics, customer profiles, and much more. Lastly, we are here to provide you with unlimited support to make your app as successful as possible.
10. What is the upfront fee for?
The upfront fee is for the design and development of your PWA or native mobile app. It is also for initial training and onboarding.
