iOS is a mobile operating system that was developed by Apple to control its proprietary hardware. The spectrum of devices under the control of iOS includes the iPhone smartphone, the iPad, and the iPod touch. Though Apple has always conceived and proffered unique, even bizarre, programming and user interface paradigms—always “zagging while the rest of the world zigs”—iOS has managed to take the world by storm and become the second most popular mobile operating system, just behind Google Android in total deployment volume. The iOS platform provides a brilliant, intuitive user interface that uses touch-screen technology and unique, gestural paradigms with such standard controls as buttons, menus, and sliders.
iOS provides rich and facile support for the development of mobile applications, or “apps.” Buy Now Depot’s software engineers are expert in the use of the functions and mechanisms of iOS to interface with a variety of content providers in order to construct apps that are semantically rich, visually attractive, and easy to interact with. Drawing upon our extensive experience across a multitude of platforms, we are able to provide you and your discriminating clients with mobile applications that are so user-friendly and powerful that they appear to be seamless, natural extensions to the core capabilities of the smartphone, which include such run-of-the-mill tools as calendars, mapping, and reading and writing e-mails on the go.
iOS mobile applications are different from standard software applications because they present altogether distinct user experiences. Users who have become accustomed to heavy use of the keyboard and mouse are all of a sudden empowered to complete tasks by performing manual movements known as “gestures” that are so intuitive that they are already second nature. The familiar mouse-based drag and drop movements are replaced by their digital (as in fingers) analogues. Moreover, users can spread and pinch in order to drill down into details or zoom out to a more global level. Taking advantage of its years’ worth of expertise with the creation and optimization of user interfaces—including thorough consideration of the psychological and ergonomic considerations that they entail—Buy Now Depot engineers can successfully exploit the gestural paradigm to deliver mobile applications that your clients will find an absolute pleasure to use, inducing them to spend ever more time at your e-store and give you ever more e-dollars.
Mobile applications are often thought of as repositories of vulnerabilities that are easily exploited by malefactors, ranging from the neighborhood punk to the foreign agent. However, iOS offers a rich set of tools that can be used precisely to control the security parameters of the app, ranging from defining authorized users and their assigned roles to read and write protection of specific files and databases, whether they reside on the smartphone or on the cloud. Buy Now Depot’s software engineers possess world-class experience in the definition of security standards, mechanisms, and protocols and are able to bring this expertise to bear for you so that the resultant e-commerce platforms are highly resistant to loss of income or compromise of your trusting customers’ private accounts and credentials.
