Mobile & Internet of Things
In an age when everyone’s rushing to take advantage of the proliferation of mobile and Internet-Enabled devices on the market, you need a team adept enough to create mobile applications with a consistent user interface and experience. But creating for mobile and Internet-Enabled devices requires more than just creating a pretty user interface.
With a keen awareness of the intricacies of mobile hardware and software, sensors and algorithms, we create sophisticated code that goes beyond basic UI and UX. Since the 1990s, our senior programmers have developed code for mobile and Internet-Enabled devices and have programmed for the prototypes of the smart phones we know now. When it comes to mobile, we know our stuff, and we love to build.
We’ve worked and have experience within the most important development environments and know the constraints and limitations of each platform. From battery consumption to gesture UI, our team has the experience and know-how to handle every aspect of the software side of mobile and Internet-Enabled devices. We’re not afraid to write low-level code, work with hardware, or create kernel drivers, taking every minute detail into consideration. Need mobile quality assurance? At Codeminders, our engineers are experienced in testing mobile apps and can ensure that your product will be ready for the market, well ahead of its launch date. When it comes time for optimization, Codeminders can do device-specific low-level optimization (for example using OpenGL or NEON).
We can also handle the submission of your app to the app stores (iOS, Android, etc.) and every step of the registration process across multiple platforms. We leverage our own registration and certifications, should you not have them, which can speed the process along. We know our way around the submission process, can build for a faster approval, and have experience testing with independent authorities.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Our knowledge goes far beyond standard mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones. We’ve built code across a host of Internet-Enabled devices including Google Glass, Pebble watch, Fitbit, NEST Thermostat, 3M Smart Thermostat, AR.Drone, USB/Bluetooth Game Controllers, payment terminals, HID devices, Wireless Sensors, Wireless/USB Security and Web cameras, fitness equipment and touch sensors. We’ve worked with Arduino, XBee/Zigbee, AVR, embedded Linux, D-Link, and Cisco DD-WRT, and we have programmed a variety of sensors and actuators for robotics projects.
Got a product that needs to be supported across multiple devices? Every aspect of the experience, from the ergonomics and screen dimensions to the specific controls and navigation of the device, needs to be taken into consideration from the very beginning. Despite the fact that the IoT industry is pretty new, we already have an range of experience that we can couple with our history in the mobile space. We know what works and what doesn’t, and we can advise on features that haven’t even been considered.
Writing complex code is a blend of art and science, and transitioning from a desktop to mobile UI can be a challenge, as it requires a redesign of the device’s navigation flow. Everything from the type of navigation to the size of the buttons needs to be taken into consideration to allow the user to move freely and comfortably within the app.
From accelerometers and barometers to GPS and proximity sensors, mobile and Internet-Enabled devices have enormous potential. We’ll let you know how to take advantage of these, how to incorporate them into the application, and how to create an amazing user experience.
