CHITIN SOFTWARE: HOW YOUR APP IDEAS BECOME REALITY

Most of us use apps: whether Google Maps for navigation, Netflix for entertainment or Facebook for communication - every app serves its purpose. It is often more convenient for users to access the relevant service via an app. When it is worthwhile for companies to have an app programmed and what makes a strong partner.

While most of us only know apps from a consumer perspective, for companies like Chitin, their technical details are a language they speak fluently. Christian Weiss and Wolfgang Wiedemann founded the company in 2015 out of passion. The founders are interested in good software and love being creative. Both are essential for good app development. Over the years, the team has grown and now consists of a good mix of permanent employees and freelancers. Chitin is the number 1 for app programming in Augsburg, but has long been known for its app development beyond the city limits.

What's special: Customers can approach the company founders directly with their app ideas and get an honest opinion on the chances of success and the technical implementation. The experienced professionals then give an assessment and create a plan to bring the app idea to life. The company offers a complete service - from app programming to marketing.

WHY INVEST IN APP PROGRAMMING?

Do you think a homepage is enough? Not necessarily! It all depends on what you want to achieve. An app is basically a type of additional program that users can install on their smartphone, for example. But there is also app programming for computers. Apps allow users to personalize their smartphone and adapt it to their personal needs. Loading times are minimized and less data is used overall than on mobile websites, for example. Operation is generally much simpler and more convenient.

HOW IMPORTANT ARE APPS FOR USERS?

A mobile-optimized website is standard these days. After all, this is an important ranking criterion for search engines. A good mobile website is enough for many companies, so when is the additional app worthwhile?
Eight out of ten people over the age of 14 in Germany own a smartphone, according to a Bitkom study. These 57 million people are buying more and more online: A study by PwC, for example, showed that in 2019, for the first time, more people are using smartphones than PCs to shop online. This makes it clear that the importance of cell phones and thus also of apps is growing. It is no coincidence that industry giants such as Amazon and Zalando have been offering their customers apps for years. In 2018, for example, around 152 million users in the USA used Amazon's mobile website and 112 million used the app. This was shown by a Comscore study. What is interesting for companies is that buyers' engagement with the Amazon app was significantly higher: customers spent 85 percent of their time in the app, compared to just 15 percent on the mobile website. The more time customers invest, the more likely they are to make a purchase. Under certain circumstances, it can be worthwhile for companies to invest in app programming.

WHEN IS APP DEVELOPMENT WORTHWHILE FOR COMPANIES?

Whether it is worth having your own app depends largely on the business model of the company in question. Once installed, the app can become a permanent fixture on the mobile phone, the company can send push notifications, make content available offline and enable users to navigate more easily. The direct accessibility of the target group through push notifications or other messages is a big plus. New products can be shared promptly and often reach the audience faster and more reliably than in conventional channels such as newsletters or social media.

TIME IS MONEY: MORE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION THROUGH APP USAGE

Completing a purchase via an app is often more intuitive and faster than via a mobile website. Time is money - especially on the Internet. Even the shortest waiting or loading times will cause many potential buyers to abandon the offer. The entire ordering process is easier with an app: customer data is saved and the customer is automatically logged into their profile. There are often only a few clicks between researching a new product and the time of purchase.

There are many reasons why a purchase is abandoned on websites, but technical problems play just as much of a role as an overly complicated process in the online shop. An app usually eliminates these factors. The bottom line is that an app can therefore ensure greater customer satisfaction, more sales, a better brand image and greater customer loyalty.

HOW TO FIND OUT IF YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS AN APP

If you are not sure whether an app is really worth it, ask someone who should know: your customers! You can easily find out with a short survey on your homepage or on social media. However, it is often enough to analyze metadata. For example, do your customers often search for a newsletter or do many of them sign up for it? Then the need for information seems to be high. Do customers report problems with the online shop in reviews? This can also be a good indication that there are problems that an app could solve.

Some companies or business ideas are even based almost exclusively on an app. These include community ideas such as the Barrio app, which Chitin Software programmed. It has already been downloaded over 10,000 times on Android devices and about the same number on Apple devices. Parents use the app to arrange playdates with their children. Users can use a chat function and create profiles and friend lists. The app programming agency from Augsburg created this app natively, i.e. with an individual backend for iOS and Android users.

IOS PROGRAMMING VS. ANDROID PROGRAMMING: APP DEVELOPMENT FOR DIFFERENT PLATFORMS

Chitin's service includes apps for smart homes and smart cars, company-specific app solutions, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), IoT (Internet of Things), porting and much more. Don't worry if some of the terms are not immediately clear to you. The experts are ultimately responsible for the technical details and advice. In principle, the professionals can program an app natively or hybrid. Native programming is done in the company's own programming language, i.e. with Java or Kotlin for apps in Android systems, for iOS they use Swift, for example. The IT experts program hybrid apps so that they work in both operating systems. The desired performance and necessary computing power of the app and numerous other factors decide which type of programming makes more sense. When choosing between iOS programming and Android programming, it is worth taking a look at the user numbers. Around 75 percent of users have an Android smartphone and only around a quarter have an Apple device.

REASONS FOR A HYBRID OR NATIVE APP AT A GLANCE

REASONS FOR A HYBRID APP

– Lower programming costs
– Lower maintenance costs
– Sufficient for apps with low computing power
– Access to the phone’s hardware (camera, GPS)

REASONS FOR A NATIVE APP

– Technically the current non-plus-ultra
– Best performance
– Perfectly adapted to every platform
– Offline function
– Can access the camera, GPS or other hardware of the smartphone

APP DEVELOPMENT AUGSBURG: HONEST ADVICE IS THE BE-ALL AND END-ALL WHEN IT COMES TO COST CALCULATION

Apps, like websites, always need to be maintained. New security standards, changed algorithms or other factors can mean that a change is necessary. This should be taken into account when calculating costs. Chitin Software provides honest and realistic advice on which app design is ideal for your idea and what costs will be incurred. The company then develops a clickable dummy that makes the app, its appearance and its function tangible for the customer. After the customer has approved the design, the coding experts get to work and convert the template into a functional app. Chitin is known for app development in Augsburg, but is happy to serve customers nationwide.

CHITIN SOFTWARE: SUPPORT FROM THE START

Chitin Software is the name for app programming in Augsburg. The IT experts either develop the app completely from scratch or offer a special service for existing apps. Not all developers on the market have a lot of experience and know-how. Sometimes this means that the app does not perform as desired, that maintenance costs become too high or that maintenance is not carried out properly. Chitin can help in such cases too. Together with the experts, customers then plan a relaunch, further development or update of their existing app. Porting to another platform is also possible.

APP DEVELOPMENT AUGSBURG: EVERYTHING FROM ONE SOURCE

What's the point of an app if nobody knows about it? This is precisely why Chitin Software offers a complete service from app programming to subsequent marketing in combination with search engine optimization. The app programming agency thus ensures that your offer does not get lost in the sea of ​​apps on the market. It is worth not outsourcing the marketing part, because Chitin already has a deep insight into your product right from the start, which is crucial for marketing. Right at the start of app development, Chitin, the app development Augsburg, creates user stories, personas and wireframes. Thanks to the user stories, the company knows the target group and their problems and wishes very well. The user story clearly summarizes the benefits of the app in one sentence. The development of personas not only helps to develop the perfect app for the end user, but also puts the target group more in the foreground. The behavior, goals, challenges, motivation, wishes, interests and demographic background of the customers are therefore already known before the app is created.

The developers of the Augsburg app development not only know your product inside out, but also know what problem it solves for the customer. They understand the customer and can therefore tailor marketing and search engine optimization to the needs of the target group. For this reason, it is not worth outsourcing advertising to another company. Chitin's Augsburg app development is located just outside Munich and is therefore easily accessible for customers. On the way to your own application, a strong partner like Chitin is worth its weight in gold. The Augsburg app programming agency looks forward to hearing from you and your app idea soon!
