As 2016 gears up we have been busy with mobile app development. Having released the Falmouth University Open Days app into the app stores before xmas we’ve also been delivering an event management app that integrates with label printers and bar code scanners to allow app based management of events (yes, we did suggest Eventbrite and their excellent offering but it wasn’t suitable).
As lines between apps and websites blur we are finding that the choice of platform for app development becomes an early critical choice in the development lifecycle. With the Falmouth University Open Days app the content and messaging is driven from an administrative console on the website, whereas the event app is native content, with an uploaded CSV file providing the delegate information. Very different app types in content and structure.
