What Offshore iOS Development Services do We Offer
The iOS was originally designed to power Apple's iPhone series. Today, it powers all of Apple's mobile devices, including the iPad and iPod Touch.
The rising popularity of mobile computing has resulted in a boom in iOS app development. There are several native technologies in the iOS ecosystem.
- Objective-C is the main programming language Apple utilizes for iOS.
- Swift is the programming language designed for the Apple API programming frameworks, Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. The offshore swift app development is in high demand right now.
- UIKit is the main development framework for iOS apps. All core components needed by an app are defined by it.
- Internationalization and Localization is a process where the app gets translated to different languages. The first step, internationalization, is a preparation stage that makes the app capable of adapting to any language. Localization is making the translation process.
- Auto Layout allows the developer to optimize complicated GUIs easily.
- Storyboard aids developers in visually representing what their app will look like and how it will flow from one screen to the next.
- Multi-Touch Gestures enable the development of touchscreen gestures into an app through Gesture Recognizers. These may be already widely recognized gestures or novel ones made specifically for the app.
- Multithreading is a way for developers to design execution paths for the app and greatly enhance its speed and efficiency.
Onix can successfully build the best map and geolocation tools into its apps to ensure that smartphone users always receive precise information about their current location and itinerary. Tools that are used to allow iOS programmers to collect and utilize data corresponding to global placement and popularity of venues, which in turn helps them to develop even better applications, include:
- Apple Maps
- Google Maps
- Google Places
- Core Location
- eeGeo-3D mapping
- Foursquare Venues
Onix simplifies a user's interaction within the app interface by utilizing data processing technology tools, and there are several ways developers can facilitate this using these tools:
- Sharing data between apps allows the app to use data from another app or provide needed data to it.
- Contacts (address book) helps the app's users store information on how to reach people important to them.
- Photos can help with user customization and socialization.
- Videos on device is similar to photos but this deals with video generated by the user or acquired by the user. Calendar is particularly important for scheduling events.
- Stocks allows people who are into the stock market to view stock market trends.
- Reminders and Alerts help the user act on critical information.
Onix takes into consideration the need to improve an app's usability, making applications even more enticing to a user. These allow users to interact with their contacts and build connections in programs such as iMessages, Mail, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Google+, Yahoo ID, Tumblr and Foursquare.
Onix guarantees that the technology solutions we apply simplify issues, and eliminate costs associated with the integration of SMS and MMS services. We use communication platforms such as P2P, Sockets, APNS, Push Notifications, StoreKit, RSS and Networking Frameworks (AFNetworking, RestKit, Alamofire, SDWebImage and Parse SDK) to stay up-to-date on their projects and programs. These frameworks allow programmers to develop functions for everything from in-app payments to user notifications.
