Enterprise Mobile App Development
Enterprise Mobile Application Development is the creation of mobile apps in order to solve a specific business problem.
Typically an Enterprise is a large business and an enterprise application or Enterprise solution involves several mobile apps and web applications, which may be integrated together or into other business systems and databases as part of a larger software platform.
Glow has delivered countless enterprise level mobile apps and web apps for clients including NHS, National Rail & Multinational Pharmaceutical Companies.
Mobile App Distributed Architecture
Most serious apps involve many separate pieces of software, all tied together in some way. For example, enterprise transport apps often rely on four mobile apps (iOS:Passenger, iOS:Staff, Android:Passenger, Android:Staff), AND middleware, ASP.NET web system, plus integrations to third party systems such as Voice Telephony, Train / Vehicle Positioning, FinTech or proprietary Internet of Things (IoT) Booking hardware.
Bringing these elements together in the best way is what we mean by mobile app architecture.
Choosing Glow as your enterprise mobile app developer brings you a team experienced in planning and delivering architecture at this level, bringing interoperability and confidence that it will continue to work at scale.
iPad App Design & Development

The larger screen, particularly newer models with retina display beg to have iPad specific content. Would you like to discuss ipad app development? We've successfully delivered ipad and mobile apps for clients in London, Liverpool and around the UK.
Mobile Web vs. Mobile App
Sometimes, a well crafted, mobile responsive website might be more appropriate than a mobile app. We’ll help you understand that decision. Occasionally, a system might include both. Glow offer expert mobile app development and web design.
Native / HTML Mobile Apps
There’s two ways of developing mobile apps. The simplest is to create the mobile app in a similar way to a website, then wrap it up as an app and deploy it into the various App stores, which is cost effective, limited and best suited to simpler mobile app development.
Where time and budget allow, fully “native” mobile apps will always be more powerful, robust and generally more usable. They’re quicker, more stable and more powerful. Bear in mind that this approach means developing a totally separate app for each platform eg. Android App, iPhone App, Blackberry App. There’s more information about Mobile App Development in our infographic.
