About Mobile App Development
With the boom in popularity of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, mobile applications came. People are veering away from their desktop PCs and laptops to spend more time on their mobile gadgets. I use my phone as a watch, notebook, alarm clock, and calendar.
As a result, businesses and organizations felt the need to develop apps to effectively reach their target markets. This is where mobile app development comes in. App development companies create software for mobile devices that satisfies the requirements of organizations that requested them.
Among the factors considered for successful app development are a good user interface and adaptability. Since mobile apps are practically created for end-users, ease of use is a big factor when using them.
I wouldn’t use an app I find confusing and visually cluttered, and those that I use should still be usable even if my phone updates its system software.
Types Of App Development Companies
App developers can generally be categorized into four main types: enterprise-inhouse, enterprise-outsource, boutiques, and freelancers. Enterprise app developers refer to large companies that provide everything from building and testing to publishing the app.
In-house enterprise developers use mostly their own employees, which require bigger project budgets, while some enterprise developers outsource parts of the process to freelancers, essentially pulling costs down.
Boutique developers are those that are comprised of small teams, usually two-person teams, that cater to fewer clients and specialize in certain apps or industries but are very detail-oriented. Lastly, freelancers are independent app developers who are willing to do the whole development process independently but may take time and are associated with a bit of uncertainty.
This software development company was founded in 2008 and is currently considered among the leading companies in mobile app development and cloud consulting for high-end technology solutions. Intuz began developing apps in 2008 when Apple first launched the App Store.
The company has created over 1,500 apps for different industries in more than 40 countries globally, showcasing its diverse industry experience and technical expertise. It boasts of a unique app development process which Intuz claims are a hybrid of Waterfall, Scrum, & Kanban.
The company’s app development process involves designing a project plan, defining user interaction, creating a sensible app design and finalizing its scope, and then implementing, reviewing, and launching the final output.
Last Minute Tours & Adventure Activities With Bubba Booking
One of the apps developed by Intuz is the Bubba Booking mobile app, which serves as a virtual concierge and last-minute vacation planner. The app offers access to third-party business owners who offer activities, tours, and rentals.
If I’m looking to plan a last-minute vacation and don’t have time to examine all options, all I have to do is use the Bubba Booking app and input my preferred location, budget, travel date, and the number of days I’ll spend there.
The app gives me information on available tours around my chosen location, the availability of these tours, and the deals offered for them. Because Bubba Booking already works with the business owners, I can immediately book and receive the e-tickets via the app. It will also send me an SMS of my daily agenda once I start my vacation.

Taiwan’s Reliable Taxi Finder App FindTaxi
When I was on vacation in Taiwan with my family, there was an instance where we couldn’t find the bus that would take us to the Maokong Gondola. This is because bus markings in Taiwan are written in Taiwanese, and the numbers in front distinguish their routes.
If you are in a hurry and become confused about which buses to take, you’re most likely going to take a taxi, which could sometimes be very difficult because of the language barrier. Thankfully, RV Technologies developed an app for Sleepnova Inc. called FindTaxi.
Using the FindTaxi app, you only need to type in your destination, and it will automatically assign a taxi driver near you. You can also input additional criteria for your booking, such as Tourist Guide, Driver Gender, and No Smoking, to filter the results.
