"High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation." ―Charles Kettering

The Ongoing Popularity of the HTML 5 Framework

With all the latest advancements in mobile app development over the last few years, the task of creating compelling mobile applications is easier than ever. 

These creative frameworks have identified the issues of the past and now make it easy for the developer to focus on building robust and user friendly applications that function with less glitches. 

The popularity of the HTML 5 framework can not be understated, it has grown to the point that developers expect only great things when they make use of the platform.
 

A Smoother Process + Better Result

The HTML 5 framework is designed to add enhancements to an existing interface while helping to further boost the usability of the apps. 

In short, the right HTML 5 framework will help to ensure a smoother app development process for all involved.


As the push continues each year to stay ahead of the curve, a number of HTML 5 frameworks for mobile app development have risen to the top in this industry. The UI framework is nothing more than a set of concepts and codes that help to simplify common issues. 

In laymen terms, the UI framework are a set of unique libraries that will allow the mobile app developers to build more efficient applications for their customers. These libraries are comprised of JavaScript and CSS files, used in collaboration with the HTML files. As far as the mobile app development, this framework is described to be a package of standardized codes that include CSS, JavaScript, and HTML.

So without further ado, these are the top HTML 5 frameworks that are efficient for mobile app development.

1. The Ionic Framework

The Ionic framework is considered to be a hybrid mobile app development tool that has a large dependency on the HTML 5 technology. 

This is an open source, complete with a front end SDK that can be extremely powerful and will enable the developers to design unique applications that do not comprise any of the quality of the app. 

The Ionic library is literally packed with web components, gestures, and tons of resourceful tools that will help to make the design process easier. The Ionic framework is also efficient at producing both intriguing and interactive apps. In addition to this being a very popular framework for mobile app development, it can be especially helpful for the developers who want to make use of the app testing process.

2. The Sencha Touch Framework

The Sencha Touch framework is a very popular HTML 5 mobile app development system because it utilizes the MVC (Model View Controller) to help the developer to be able to create unique hybrid applications. 

The framework takes all the guesswork out of this complicated process, allowing the team to function on functionality. When developers make use of the Sencha Touch framework, there will be an ease in coding on various mobile OS systems without having to alter the feel or the look of the app. 

This framework can easily build any replica of an existing app when it is collaborated with phone gap. This is a commercial venture that comes with dense technical support, tools, and documentation

3. The Adobe Top Coat Framework

The Adobe Top Coat framework stands on reputation alone as one of the top mobile app developer tools. 

When you hear the name Adobe, you know that extensive work behind the scenes has gone into the development. The Adobe Top Coat framework is an incredible HTML UI platform that has many enriching features that allow the developer to create mobile apps for free. 

This framework does rely on the CSS more so than the JavaScript, allowing it to provide more control for the developers. 

The Adobe Top Coat framework does have a substantial edge over many of the other frameworks as far as appearance and speed for desktop browsers that make use of style sheets or touch target controls. Mobile app developers are able to create creative applications that have a certain flair unlike any others.  

4. The Kendo UI Framework

Another very popular framework that utilizes the HTML 5 is Kendo UI. This is the perfect mobile app developers tool for creating some really stunning out-of-the-box designs that have their own unique functionality. 

Basically you can get working quickly and have a stunning design in half the time with this framwork. The Kendo UI is dependent on the jQuery powered UI widgets, but that makes the end result so compelling. 

This particular framework has a large number of built-in themes that the developer can make use of when creating applications. 

The Kendo UI has a theme builder that allows the developer to alter the look of any mobile app on the go. This framework does integrate well with AngularJs and Bootstrap Loader.

5. jQuery Mobile

When it comes to jQuery Mobile, it is by far the most commonly used of all the HTML 5 frameworks. 

The reason for the popularity with developers is because the jQuery Mobile is considered to be a minimalist framework. One of the reasons for the attraction to this framework is because it does provide the developer a variety of mobile user interfaces. 

These interfaces are key in helping to replicate the usability and the appeal of a true desktop site. The jQuery Mobile framework is programmed with the HTML 5 elements like CSS and JavaScript.
 
Part of the overall appeal of the jQuery Mobile is that this framework helps to build touch-optimized apps that are responsive and run smoothly across a number of platforms on a variety of devices.

The Next Step

Now you should have a better idea of the top HTML 5 frameworks and how they are helping mobile app developers to create stunning applications that end-users are loving.
 
All of these frameworks have their own unique benefits, so you need to carefully choose one that better suits your developing needs the most. By looking at the benefits of each there should be no trouble finding one that perfectly aligns with your needs when it comes to developing mobile apps.

        App Monetization: iPhone Apps Vs Android Apps

        by Saul Edmonds

        Are iPhone Apps or Android Apps Best for Monetization?

        sept17-blog_App Monetization- iPhone Apps Vs Android Apps.png

        The key thing is, always put the right content on the right network, on the right platform, make it great, and then figure out how to monetize it. ―Jon Feltheimer

        It doesn't matter if you are working with iPhone or Android apps, there are plenty of ways to monetize each platform so that you can make some nice residual income for the long-term.

        While there may be similar ways to monetize in the apps, they are definitely not one in the same. if you are still in the early development phase and looking to choose one over the other, the following information should be helpful.

        If you already have the app in the later stages of development and you simply want to see what options there are for you to make money, then this information should give you a good jumping off point. 

        When it comes to app monetisation, knowing your end game in advance will make the process much easier.

        Here are a few of the things to consider when it comes to app monetisation for iPhone apps vs Android apps.

        Now before we can get into the different ways to monetize each application, we need to take a close look at what separates one from the other. If you want to start with the most popular, it might come as a surprise to some that the iOS apps are generating a staggering 35% more revenue than those on the Android platform. 

        Why is iOS outperforming Android? 

        The answer is really clear. The Apple App Store currently has over 400 million users that have registered for their one-click payment system. To get a better understanding of that what means, if you have an app in the Apple Store, 400 million potential buyers already have the money in their hand and only need to click a button for you to get paid. That is a huge selling pint for app developers who have to choose one over the other. 

        The reason those using the iOS system benefit is because Apple makes sure anyone who downloads any apps, whether free or premium, has already registered in their system and has a credit card on file. The other reason is that the majority of Apple Store users have at one point downloaded movies or music from iTunes, so that existing payment relationship is already in place as you hit the App Store.

        Compare this to Android that makes use of Google Play. 

        Users on the Android system are not required to have credit card information on file, in fact, users who want to download free apps only need be logged in with any G-mail address. Even though Google is making efforts to try and get users to enter their credit cards to download apps, it is not a full requirement yet like with Apple.

        That being said, both platforms offer ways to monetize the apps and provide you a steady stream of income for the foreseeable future. Creating a few different versions of the same app allow you to sell it with premium features once you get the user invested in the free version first. 

        App Monetization with iPhone Apps

        When you have a free app in the Apple App Store, you have a better chance of making money offering other features that you would if you simply offered the premium app as a standalone. Here are some 3 ways to monetize iPhone Apps:

        1. In-App Items - Once your free app has grown in popularity, you simply monetize and get users already comfortable with the app to buy in-app items. This is a great way to entertain the users too as they get to be teased with bonuses and features that could enhance the app experience.
        2. Premium Version - Although you will get some sales if you offer a premium app, selling it from within the free app is the way to go. When the free app provides valuable content to all users, you can then create a premium version. Users wanting to use this newer version must pay to access it. Simply find out what your users like, then all you have to do is monetize it.
        3. CPI Ad Network - You really don’t have to put much work into earning money with the free app. All you need to do is upload your app and integrate with a CPI add network to generate a steady income.

        App Monetization with Android Apps

        Having a free app in the Google Play Store means you are going to get a ton of downloads if you hit that sweet spot, making money is something altogether different. Ways to monetize Android Apps include:

        1. Paid Downloads - This is the least effective way to make any money with your apps in the Google Play Store. It is estimated that on 6% of all the apps downloaded are actually paid for.
        2. Ad Revenue - Android Authority reports that 49% of the Android apps in the Google Play Store contain ads.
        3. In-App Purchases - Perhaps the best way to make money with your app at the Google Play site is with in-app purchases. More people are making in-app purchases than they are buying premium apps, and this number is only expected to rise in the next year. Users download the app for free, then must pay in order to unlock in-app content or special bonus features. 
        4. E-commerce - There are over 37,000 apps in the Google Play store that are monetized through e-commerce. This number is expected to steadily grow as the shift to e-commerce explodes in popularity year to year. This is a great way to provide customers an easy way to shop for products across a number of different mobile devices.
        5. Affiliate Partnership - Those apps which have a tremendous amount of content monetize by way of affiliate partnerships. There are a number of affiliate networks that are recording record numbers this year, and users who want to get in the game and grab some of that app cash now have another resource available to them.

        There you have it, whether you are going iPhone or Android, you have plenty of app monetisation methods to consider. The best part is that once you get the ball rolling downhill and start making some money, you simply rinse and repeat the process until you hit your goals

              Why Better Web Design Means Higher Conversion Rates

              by Saul Edmonds

              Discover How Quality Web Design Increases Your Bottom Line

              Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.
              Charles Eames

              Why Better Website Design Leads To More Sales

              The single biggest metric used on a website to determine overall success or failure is your conversion rates.

              • The higher the conversion rate, the more sales your company will enjoy.

              In order to convert those visitors into loyal customers, you need be working on areas like SEO, relevant content, advertising, social media, and of course your web design.

              Focus on web design and you can see those conversion rates take an upturn very quickly. Then you can focus on those others areas at a steady pace.

              Here are a few principles of good web design that will help improve your conversion rates.

              The Power of Usability

              • Take a good look at your website from the eyes of your potential customers.

              Is the website user friendly or is it intuitive?

              In order to increase conversions on your website you have to be working on both of those key elements. The easier a person can perform tasks on your website, the easier they can get to the business of buying. When a person arrives on your website for the very first time, they will be able to determine within seconds whether or not to continue or tho click the back button.

              • During the design of your website, take some tips from your competition.

              Place some items in the cart at those websites and see which features you loved and which only slowed down the process. Incorporate those features into your website, using the best of the best.

              Improved Design Features

              There are certain features you can implement into the design that will have a direct impact on the conversion rates.

              These features will nudge the visitor along so that they wind up on the product page and load the cart with the items they need more efficiently.

              • Large headings and verb oriented call to action buttons guide your visitors to take action.

              People simply need to be told what to do in many cases, so by giving them action words on the website, it helps them to easily make a decision to move along. The key here is not cluttering up the pages - the more content on a page, the harder it is for the reader to find the information to get the process rolling.

              • Find ways to improve the load speed on your website.

              Users today are used to getting information at break neck speed. if they have to wait for your pages to load, they will abandon that cart quickly and shop elsewhere.

              A Rewarding Shopping Experience

              • If the colours and visuals on your website engage your visitor, the more likely they are to stay.
              • The longer they stay on your website, the better chance you have to convert them from a visitor into a customer.

              Choose the right images, buttons, text, arrows - all of which should lead the buyer to those important call to action buttons.

              If the design is poor, and the buyer is clicking around your website and not getting anywhere, you risk your website becoming a poor buying experience. Make the checkout process smooth, ensure the website is visually pleasing to the eyes, and eliminate all that clutter.

              • Continue testing and tweaking all the features and functions on your website.

              Stay informed as to what your competition is doing to improve their buyers' experience, and use those features to help improve areas where your website is lacking too.

              Stop leaving money on the table by sending your customers out the door within the first few seconds of arriving on your website. If you can focus your attention on making your buyer experience a rewarding one, they will not only will love you for it, they will also tell their inner circle about you.

              In a world where advertising costs a fortune, getting customers to refer you to their inner circle is the least expensive and most effective advertising there is.

              Top 10 Ecommerce Questions For Startups

              by Saul Edmonds
              Top 10 Ecommerce Questions For Startups.png

              10 Key Ecommerce Questions to Ask Before Launching an Online Store

              "If there’s one reason we have done better than of our peers in the Internet space over the last six years, it is because we have focused like a laser on customer experience, and that really does matter, I think, in any business. It certainly matters online, where word of mouth is so very, very powerful." 
              - Founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos

              Are you considering joining the ecommerce revolution?

              Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent online each year. This represents huge opportunity for anyone looking to create an online store.

              Selling products and services online is completely different from selling via a traditional storefront. Starting an ecommerce business doesn't have to be an overwhelming when you understand how to navigate the waters confidently.

              Read on for the top ten ecommerce questions for startups.

              1. How Do I Build a Online Store?

              Firstly, there are plenty of online resources that can help. Many companies that provide ecommerce hosting will also walk you through the steps of setting up your store. Alternatively, you can work with a professional web designer to get your ecommerce business online for you.

              2. Should I Customise My Website?

              Your website is an extension of your offline business and brand. Ensure that your color scheme, logos, fonts, and images maintain your brand identity online. Aim to create a point of difference with your competitors – so that you stand out amongst others in your niche.

              3. How Do I Collect Money?

              Do your homework when it comes to choosing a card processing company. While they all basically do the same thing, they all charge different rates for each transaction they process in your store shopping cart. Research merchant accounts and read reviews before you make this important decision.

              4. How Do I Handle Customer Service?

              This is one aspect of your website you can not overlook. Making the customer happy is all about interacting with them when they have a question or concern - and delivering a consistent positive experience. Invest in a customer relationship management system so you have a finger on the pulse of everything going on with your visitors.

              5. How Much Do I Charge For Shipping?

              The best way to address shipping is to choose from one of the top shipping companies and create an account with them. That way you can incorporate their shipping calculator into your shopping cart, allowing customers to get real time shipping quotes directly from the carrier. Many online retailers inbuild shipping costs into their product pricing and are able to offer 'free shipping' to customers as a result.

              6. How Do I Create Professional Images?

              The only way you can sell your products - is by giving your buyers an opportunity to view your items as clearly as possible.

              A professional photographer will ensure a quality result. If you opt to take your own images, be certain that you place each item in plenty of light so that your images will clearly show all details. Take multiple pictures to give your buyers the opportunity to see your items from all sides.

              7. Should I Add Reviews and Social Share Buttons?

              This is an absolute must if you want to grow your brand. Give your customers the opportunity to tell others about their experience with your company. When they share your information you are basically receiving a trusted endorsement to all their friends and colleagues.

              8. How Do I Attract Visitors?

              Promoting your new website today is all about being social.

              Place your ecommerce website link prominently on all your social media profile pages, and post messages to these platforms daily to attract interest. Take the time to interact and be social with your fans. Give people a reason to follow you with quality content, updated daily.

              9. Do I Accept Returns?

              If a customer knows you have a return policy, it will give them the confidence they need to know you stand behind your products. Where appropriate, accepting returns is recommended.

              10. How Do I Monitor My Success?

              Of all the ecommerce tips, this is the most important.

              You need to be able to monitor your success in order to improve an build your business. Install Google Analytics for free on your website, and you track everything from where your customers arrived from, keywords they used and how long they stayed on your pages.

              Many ecommerce platforms offer a significant range of tools to measure and improve engagement and conversion. Ecommerce success results from testing and improving and refining the customer experience.

              Good luck with your online store!

              ​Digital Branding

              How to achieve digital branding success 

              The goal of branding is to create a meaningful dialogue between company and consumer. 

              Digital branding refers exclusively to online brand messages. Audience engagement is the key to establishing a relevant brand in the digital world.

              What is Digital Branding?

              In an increasingly 'online world', brands must adapt their marketing tactics to the digital space.

              Digital branding seeks to establish communication channels online in which both the brand and the target audience share and engage proactively via the internet.

              Customer loyalty is strengthened when brands participate in the conversation.

              Today, direct communication is paramount. Companies are increasingly acknowledging the many benefits to building a strong brand online. Customers appreciate brands that provide relevant feedback, respect people as individuals and provide up to date information. 

              Actively building customer relations online is fundamental to digital branding success.

              What are channels for digital branding?

              Digital branding channels include blogs, forums, networking and bookmarking sites. Social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Youtube and Flickr should be strategically integrated into every business digital branding strategy.

              Branding across these online platforms must be visually consistent. Companies should ensure logo and brand style elements are well represented.

              Brand engagement via relevant information and interaction is the key. Consumers prefer to communicate with 'real people' behind the brand. Brand representatives must present a consistent brand message - as every communication is part of the whole.

              Digital Branding and Audience Engagement

              Digital branding is about observation, participation and contribution.

              Brands must strive to actively serve their audience. Social media is a powerful tool that can be utilised to service clients better than ever before. 

              Companies should carefully reflect on ways to ensure their brand is increasingly relevant and useful.  Information should be offered free of charge. This will further increase audience engagement and boost profitability long term.

              Digital branding is a long term strategy that must be maintained on a daily basis. 

              Brand Monitoring and Feedback

              Digital branding gives brands many opportunities to gain feedback directly from consumers. This is an affordable way for brands to monitor the success and relevancy of products and services. This is a great way for brands to continue to improve.

              Brand Community

              The ultimate goal of digital branding is to build a loyal community of engaged followers. Brands must seek to encourage interaction and reward loyalty.

              At the core of digital branding is the drive to better understand and communicate with the consumer. Brands should integrate creative ways to stimulate dialogue.

              Negative comments and feedback are best addressed by direct and open means. A genuinely unsatisfied customer will always appreciate a fair response and offer of compensation. 

              Digital Branding for Your Business

              Opportunities to grow branding online continue to expand. Brands should embrace the new paradigm and seek to serve their audience. A commitment to building a strong digital brand will return a positive result.

                How to Choose A Web Developer

                by Saul Edmonds

                How to choose the right web developer for your business.

                What is web development?

                The term 'web development' relates to the technical and structural aspects of a website's functionality. It is the 'web developer' that makes a 'web design' work in practical terms.

                Web Development includes such elements as domain management, sitemap architecture, programming, specialist coding and security procedures. 

                Web development is a highly specialised field that includes several disciplines such as web programming, information systems and architecture, internet application as well as an understanding of usability and online marketing.

                A successful and highly converting website needs to 'look good' (with a visually appealing web design) and 'work well' (with integrated web development systems).

                Your Business and Web Development

                Every successful website needs to be 'found online'.

                Professional web development boosts search performance. A well developed website is built to be search engine friendly. SEO (or search engine optimisation) refers to the techniques designed to achieve search rankings for targeted keywords.

                It is estimated that more than 76% of all purchase decisions are made online.

                A well developed website that is highly optimised for keywords is essential for businesses today. To remain competitive, every business should identify their target market. Today that target market is found increasingly online. A well branded, user friendly and professionally developed website will boost profitability.

                Audiences are increasingly sophisticated and well informed. 

                Every website should be designed to meet the requirements of your target market. A professional web development company will take time to understand the specific needs of your prospects and clients. Features and functionalities best suited to conversion and service will be carefully implemented into your website. Every website should be designed and developed for success.

                Choosing the Right Web Developer

                Quality web development is always in demand. Web development is a high growth industry. 

                A customised website should deliver significant ROI. Online marketing and increased online visibility is a must for every business. A marketing plan that includes internet promotion, a social media strategy, eCommerce, email newsletters and SEO will drive traffic and increase profitability.

                A quality website is the foundation of a successful internet marketing campaign. 

                Take care to ensure your web developer is experienced and professionally qualified. 'Cheap' or 'Budget' websites can be false economy. Take time to choose a web developer with an extensive portfolio and client list who can demonstrate proven results. Ask for testimonials. Getting the right website is the best investment your business can make.
