Mobile Technologies

Our goal at Trailhead Technology Partners is to make your life easier with custom software and apps. Mobile technology is constantly enhancing our ability to do even more for you and your team.

The Technologies Behind Your Mobile Apps

Mobile apps that are most useful and provide end users with the best possible experiences have more going on behind the scenes than people realize. To build your custom apps and software for mobile devices, Trailhead Technology trusts and uses a variety of tools and platforms.

React

Our developers use this open-source, front-end JavaScript library for building user interfaces based on UI components. React can be used as a base in the development of single-page, mobile, or server-rendered applications with frameworks like Next.js. React is particularly useful because it updates and renders components when data changes (as opposed to imperative programming). The selective rendering provides a major performance boost and saves the effort of recalculating the CSS-style, layout for each page and rendering for entire pages.

Android

Between being the world’s most widely installed mobile operating system and its openness to developers and designers, Android offers almost limitless possibilities. Android Studio features a build system that allows our developers to customize builds and generate multiple variants for different devices within a single project. The Android operating system has a well-deserved reputation for enabling development teams to work faster, write better code (in Kotlin, Java, and C/C++ languages), and be more productive.

C#

Mobile app development on native platforms requires native SDK to give complete access to APIs for hardware and OS features, as well as emulator-like tools. Each platform has specific IDE along with development languages and third party supports. Xamarin, for example, is C#-based cross-platform that uses Microsoft technologies and tools. C# is ideal language for cross-platform app development because the interface is flexible and adaptive.

IOS

Apple’s iOS is the second-most widely installed mobile operating system in the world and applications are mainly built using elements of the UIKit programming framework. UIKit offers customization, while also keeping the consistent look and feel of iOS. We write the code for these apps in the iOS Software Development Kit (SDK) with supported programming languages like Objective-C and Swift.

Visual Studio

Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft that we use to develop mobile apps. Visual Studio uses Microsoft software development platforms such as Windows API, Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Store and Microsoft Silverlight, and it can produce both native code and managed code. 

Flutter

Flutter enables our developers to build mobile apps that can deploy to multiple devices from a single codebase. Powered by Dart, Flutter code compiles to JavaScript, ARM, and Intel machine code so apps have fast performance on any device. We can use the platform to update code and see changes almost instantly, without having to worry about losing state.  

Xamarin Studio

This open-source platform is highly flexible and allows our team to build modern and performant applications for iOS, Android, and Windows. Xamarin is an abstraction layer that manages communication of shared code with underlying platform code.  

Building Better Native, Cross-Platform Apps

When our goal is to build native, cross-platform (iOS, Android, Windows for both phones and tablets) mobile apps, we use Xamarin and Windows Universal Applications. Our developers also utilize tools like Visual Studio, C#, and Xamarin Studio. This enables faster development, better maintenance, and applications that have completely native performance and look and feel. And we can always tap into our expertise in offline mobile apps with local storage, GPS tracking, push notifications and dynamic mobile surveys while developing your custom mobile apps. 

Secure Mobile App Development

Mobile app development, as an entire process, consists of creating, designing, and launching software applications capable of running on mobile devices. This involves creating installable software bundles, implementing backend services, and debugging them. Thanks to Agile methodology, our team is able to debug throughout the entire process, which helps to reduce the amount of development time and provides greater assurance that you are delivered a secure, high-quality product.

Montage Portal

Montage Furniture Services provides furniture protection plans and claims processing services to a wide selection of furniture retailers and consumers.

Project Background

Montage was looking to build a new web portal for both Retailers and Consumers, which would integrate with Dynamics CRM and other legacy systems. The portal needed to be multi tenant and support branding and configuration for different Retailers. Trailhead architected the new Montage Platform, including the Portal and all of it’s back end integrations, did the UI/UX and then delivered the new system, along with enhancements to DevOps and processes.
