How companies can create apps that look just as good on phones as desktops

Creating professional looking apps for multiple devices is a major challenge for developers. While app development tools have accelerated app building, developers are often forced to use a template or structure.

Unfortunately the end result can be that apps don’t look right on different devices and end up looking like the Toolset, not the polished and professionally branded apps they wanted.

While the look and feel of a business app is often the most important part of the business model for many companies, it’s one of hardest things to get right. With so many devices and different operating systems available, it’s also a complex problem to overcome.

There is a solution. Last year we launched Evoke, our rapid app development platform, which allows users to develop and deploy high quality, professional business apps on any device in a fraction of the time of traditional development methods.

Using Evoke, developers can view how the apps will look on any device in real time as a WISIWYG rendition, giving an exact representation of how the app will look. This display dynamically adapts if developers change their design space, surface area or select a different operating system such as iOS, Android or Windows.

Additional viewing modes allow non-adapting visualization, block view and list views to help users of all levels of expertise and experience to build business apps with their desired look and feel.

Evoke’s single design structure also enables users to quickly build user interfaces, define and manage data from different databases, and at every step there is guidance available. It also offers UI widgets and dynamic screen adaptations to support the deployment of apps across all major platforms and devices, from a single design and code set.

Every device including the iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows phones and tablets, smart watches plus Windows, Linux and Apple desktop are supported, and the user interface design can be adapted for multiple screen sizes and operating systems.

Using this tool means developers are no longer forced down a “template” route that doesn’t allow for creativity and can build the professional apps their customers want.
