Q:What is a native app?
A:Have you ever had used an app that was slow and just kept crashing? It may have originally been in another language. A native app is an app that is programmed in the preferred language for the device. For Apple iPads and iPhones, objective-C is the programming language. Androids use Java programming language. By using the preferred language for the device, the apps can take advantage of all of the phone features, and screens load faster than other programming methods.
Q:Does our organization really need a mobile app?

Q:What is a push notification?
A:Push notifications are text messages that display on a users device, whether they have your app open or not. Think of it as an instant text message that you can send to users. People always have their phones with them, this provides direct, immediate access to them.
Q:If we sign up, how do we get people to download the app?
A:Your assigned app specialist will provide you with a marketing strategy package which will help you promote your app on your website, social media and print campaigns. When we submit your app we will integrate app store optimization features so your app will get found in searches. Also we will feature your organization and app on our search engine optimized website.
Q:What the heck is gamification?
A:It’s a real thing, we didn’t make it up. Gamification techniques leverage people’s natural desires for competition and achievement. A core strategy for gamifying is to provide rewards for users for accomplishing desired tasks. Types of rewards include points, achievement badges or levels and the filling of a progress bar. The goal is to improve user engagement in your app.
