Groove Development Mobile App Development Year in Review 2016






PORTLAND, OR - December 31, 2016 - by Portland, Oregon based Groove Development, LLC.

Custom Mobile App Development in Portland, Oregon mirrors much of the country. With our high quality engineering community and Universities, coupled with our lower cost of living, relative to the bay area to our south and Seattle to the North, Portland still offers the best option for native mobile development in the country.

2016 for Groove Development has been a great year, we’ve built apps for Nike, Motorola, SmartRG, VOBO, Vivify, Courier Buddy, Chew, JHKelly and several other brands. As mobile app clients have become more experienced and understand the benefits of apps and building mobile based businesses, mobile applications really took off in 2016. Most apps and server systems have been in the branded utility and on-demand space, for both platforms Apple iPhone(iOS) and Google’s Android devices.

Seems like the trend is less toward paid apps and more toward apps that extend a business model or on-demand services like Uber or other delivery services.

The constant discussions regarding Hybrid vs Native or Native vs web apps has largely been settled. Native apps are clearly winning as customers choose the more polished and customized features a native app can provide.

In conclusion, 2017 is shaping up to be an even better year for mobile with all the innovative app business models emerging, looks like a rewarding year.
