As consumers increasingly adopt mobile device technologies the demand for smartphones is expected to soar. Therefore it is no surprise that countless mobile phone vendors are getting ready to compete with feature-rich smartphones to capture a share of this up and coming lucrative market.

The soaring demand for smartphones is leading to an explosive need for mobile phone applications to expand the basic functionality of these devices which, when they are downloaded and installed, also creates a huge inventory of potential mobile phone ad space that can be monetized by advertisers through mobile ad networks.

To help businesses and organizations develop and leverage mobile business applications and increase the revenue and brand visibility opportunities that the mobile smartphone platforms can provide, webRulon offers mobile application development services for the iPhone platform. Our strong skills and extensive experience in interaction design, Web usability, C and C++ native-code languages, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, DHTML, Ajax and the native XCode Apple SDK, positions us as a unique partner for developing and delivering scalable and robust applications for the iPhone platform.

iPhone Application Development Services
webRulon can provide customers with a wide range of services for the development of iPhone applications, ranging from a few days of upfront consulting to strategy development, functional requirements gathering, specification writing and development, to final testing and deployment. Our experienced development teams help clients make the most of mobile phone software on the iPhone platform.

Mobile Development Strategy
Due to the rapidly changing mobile smartphone technology making the right platform and implementation decisions can be challenging. Which platform is best suited for the customers’ application and technical requirements? How to design the screen layout and navigation to ensure the highest usability? Do we implement the application as a native app or browser development? What are the tradeoffs between cost, functionality and cool features? Do we offer our application as a free or paid download?

Our application development process begins with gathering the customers’ goals and business objectives and strategy development to ensure the long-term success of the application from concept evaluation to development and maintenance. Our development team has the experience to identify and exploit opportunities that add value to the mobile application and the business.

iPhone Application Development Process
webRulon provides a complete and integrated process for the development of iPhone and iPod Touch native applications using the iPhone SDK. Our development method for the iPhone covers the entire process from design, development to deployment of the application to the Apple AppStore.

Development starts with writing or analyzing the functional requirements, defining the screen layout, user interface design and creating the design comps of the finished product. This provides us with the foundation for further development of an iPhone application that works and is easy to maintain and promote. All mobile application development projects will be developed according to the Apple iPhone development guidelines and are executed to a precise schedule of milestones and deliverables.

Not only has webRulon extensive experience with mobile application testing and deployment, our proven development team also has significant expertise in the areas of user experience design and usability testing.

iPhone Development Platform
The Apple iPhone is a mobile smartphone device developed by Apple Computer that runs an Apple proprietary operating system called the iPhone OS version 3.0. Mobile applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch are developed using XCode software and Apple’s SDK.

Upon completion, an iPhone application is deployed through Apple, which manages all iPhone applications through its App Store located within Apple’s iTunes platform. Before an application is placed on the App Store, Apple must review and approve the application.

Our iPhone application development services include the following:

Native iPhone Application Development
Development of applications that take advantage of many of the iPhone technologies such as multi-touch interface, accelerometer, GPS, proximity sensor, dialer, address book and calendar.

Safari, iPhone and iPod Touch Web Application Development
Development of a web-based Safari optimized iPhone application that connects to a server over Wi-Fi or cellular networks, submits user information to a central database or allows users to download information that relates to a definitive query.

  • Extended functionality – Mobile applications can provide application functionality or utility that is not natively available on the iPhone or is significantly better than what currently exists

  • Web Widgets
    Web widgets are mini-applications or tools written in standard web programming languages that lead to other content or drive traffic back to a website. They are primary built in HTML, JavaScript and Flash and are developed to be embedded in social networks, blogs and other web pages. Most Web widgets are available for free and focus on gaining brand visibility through embedded links, logos or advertising that promote a brand. Web widgets are also increasingly used to generate revenue.

Web widgets are typically distributed virally when there is a compelling reason for Web users to copy and paste the code on their own website or blog. Another way to get exposure for a web widget and distributed around the web is to register the widget with a widget distribution company such as Musestorm, Widgetbox, Snipperoo and Clearspring.

  • Desktop Widgets
    Desktop widgets are small, interactive applications or tools, such as a video game, a calculator, a live sports updater, stock market quotes or a currency conversion calculator that run in tiny windows on the computer desktop to deliver extended desktop functionality or to extend an existing application.

Most desktop widgets are built for a desktop platform and require that users first install the widget before it can be used. Desktop widget platforms include Yahoo! Widgets, MacOS X Widgets and Microsoft Vista Gadgets. Desktop widgets that are developed in HTML/Javascript, Flash and Flex can be installed on Windows and Mac OS X systems through Abobe AIR.

  • Social Network Applications
    Social network applications are web applications of mini-websites that are integrated into the target social network website and offer direct, deeply aligned and integrated brand experiences that get naturally shared with thousands of friends through the viral internal network communication channels of the social network website. Social network applications developed for the Facebook platform can be ported to other social networks supporting OpenSocial with some additional development.

Developing a social network application strategy with clear goals and objectives is just as important as social network application development. A well-defined social network application strategy helps online marketers and businesses understand how Web widgets, gadgets, blogs, wikis, and social networks worked together as part of a comprehensive social media strategy.

Social networks in particular not only provide integrated application promotion opportunities for applications inside the social network sites but are also highly efficient in demographic targeting by age, sex, location, interests, keywords, political persuasion, religious views and more.

Web Widget and Social Networking Application Management

Application Integration

Application integration provides end-to-end and real-time connectivity between internal e-business applications, existing web-based applications and off-the-shelf software products. Application integration allows users to send messages and files back and forth between systems, transforming those messages and automating the business process that make companies work. The true benefit of internal application integration is that it allows businesses to automate and manage end-to-end business processes that involve both human and electronic operations.

B2B Application Integration
B2B application integration connects systems and automates business processes across company boundaries using the Internet. It allows businesses of all sizes to securely and efficiently communicate and transact with partners, customers and vendors. Through B2B application integration businesses can automate the expensive error-prone process of buying and selling of products. As a result businesses can reduce operating cost and focus on supporting customers and selling products. Whether it’s directly between businesses or through intermediaries like marketplaces and exchanges, B2B integration makes the entire supply chain work much more smoothly.

Application Integration Services
To meet e-business requirements today and in the future webRulon provides a number of integration solutions.

For medium size businesses we accomplish application integration through application servers and system integration tools that give each application a single point of contact with the rest of the system, enabling the plug-and play addition and modification of applications.

For small businesses, that do not need a full featured B2B application server, we integrate commercially available off-the-shelf software products with existing web-based applications.
