Why We Love Mobile Apps? A look at mobile app or mobile web.

Between endless debates about mobile app or mobile web, the real benefits are lost. Let’s start with some statistics on mobile usage…Mobile Apps Rule

  • There are over 2.2 billion (with a ‘b”) smartphone users in the world.
  • 48% Buy from Smartphone on Amazon.
  • Majority of emails (above 60%) are opened on smartphones.
  • And, U.S. annual mobile ad spending will reach $72 billion by 2021

That means there is no escaping mobile.

But the big question is why mobile apps?

Mobile apps give you capabilities that take user experience beyond normal. For example – video capture and viewing, proximity, maps & directions, voice controlled “bots”, Health & Fitness, Financial & Payments, and many more. More examples here on Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_content. Native experience is invaluable to users.

So where do mobile apps fail?

Mobile apps fail when the service they offer aren’t properly thought thru, all-in-one complex solution that are not properly conceptualized, over engineered and badly implemented.

How to make mobile apps “Loveable”?

At Sunvera, we have had the opportunity to develop apps for our customers (MedHero, Savezees, Altura Strategies) that are well thought thru and accomplish a great deal with super simplicity. Our goal has always been to make life easier for users and that leads to super simple apps with high degree of task-accomplishment.

By focusing on real user-needs and avoiding fluff, bloat and the itch to be all-in-one solution, one can develop apps that people will love. Combine that with great graphics and you have a winner at hand. Then mobile app or mobile web app becomes an irrelevant discussion.

Finally, no app is going to sell by itself – find a way to market, promote (see promomyapp.com) and sell your app to your target audience.

Go forth and build apps that people love.

 

Telemedicine vs Emergency Rooms


Get started with tele-medicine technology that will enhance your patients experience while improving your bottom line.

Sunvera Software with their “Konsier”™ platform has generated a new type of service for expanding Medical Care through the use of a TELE-MED APP,  MDKonsier™.    
By offering after hour patient consult, your patients can avoid lengthy waits and costly emergency room bills just to be given a prescription.   Doctors can now satisfy many of these urgent need situations through a brief tele-med consult, saving time for their
patients by providing immediate answers and advice.  The conclusion of the after-hours consult is often a prescription, lab test or a scheduled office visit. Importantly, the app has already charged the patients’ credit card for the after regular business hour consult.   


The benefits are many for doctors and their patients:
-After hour consults

-Screen patient request 
-Prescribed Medication
-Mobile Billing Services
-Increased Cash flow
-Custom, Prestigious App creates patient loyaltySyringe

-App facilitates convenient patient follow up

-Flexible interaction with patient

  • after hours
  • from home
  • traveling

-Patient History

-Instant credit card patient billing

-Order scripts and labs via App

Telemedicine App for Urgent Care needs

Telemedicine is a modern, convenient, and cost effective way to access premium medical care through your mobile phone or tablet: 24/7.

The goal is to keep your patients out of the Emergency Departments and Urgent Care clinics if they don’t have an “Emergency Condition”.

The App provides your patients instant access and easy credit card pricing.  It gives access via telemedicine, to board certified physicians and licensed providers offering a variety of medical services for patients in need of medical assistance.  The App provides you, the provider, features found in a  modern HIPAA compliant EMR system.

How It Works(for the patient)

By using the App a patient can input their medical history, their urgent problem then interact directly and confidentially with the medical provider via stehovoice, chat, pictures or video.  The provider in turn offers a diagnosis and may order prescriptions, lab tests, and imaging studies as needed.
Payments are facilitated via Credit Card.  The patient sees the statement immediately at the conclusion of their virtual visit.     It’s that painless!

To Keep Your Job, Know These 3 Things About Mobile App Development

Many times we walk into client meetings and immediately get asked, “What are the three most important things in rolling out a mobile app development project?” Of course, each client is different so we respond accordingly. However, we started to notice a common theme in our responses when we were dealing with decision makers.

So we decided to create a 3-point guide for developing mobile applications.  Mobile apps are typically task-based, life-style, entertainment or game oriented applications that use very specific smart-phone abilities like GPS, Gyro, Bluetooth, Picture, Video, Audio, Camera and human-interactions.

What is really possible with mobile devices?

Mobile Features - GPS, GYRO, Video, Audio

Mobile Features

To create an effective mobile app, we need to be using not only core mobile abilities but also peripherals that interact innocuously with mobile devices. Core abilities include the GPS, Gyroscope, Camera, Audio recorder, Picture, Video and Audio player, Gesture, Touch and Tap interfaces. Peripheral interfaces include iBeacons, iOT, Wireless, Bluetooth, etc. And finally understanding usage of in-app notifications, Text-messaging, VOIP calling is critical to mobile app success.

A clear understanding of which ones to use and when to use them; is very critical to any mobile app.

See categories list at Apple.com

Apple App Store Categories

What are App Types?

There are several categories and sub-categories for App Types. And the list between Apple iTunes and Google Play stores is exhaustive and confusing. To identify correctly, you need to have a thorough understanding of your user personas.

Checkout the Apple list here https://developer.apple.com/app-store/product-page/. This has a profound impact on your app discoverability. Choosing the right category will have a profound effect on your app store performance.

How do we make people download our app?

Drive Downloads

Get more downloads

Making people download your app comes down to grass-roots marketing and promotion. We have seen crappy apps get tons of downloads while great apps languish with very little activity. Here are some of the things to consider – building an email list to run traditional email marketing, Google Adwords, SEO for App web pages, Social-media marketing among others. Which ones to execute will depend on your own marketplace, user interests and domain.

Focusing on these multidimensional aspects of mobile apps will make your app truly great and will lead to success.

Proximity Features via Beacon Technology

Technology and its uses has become advanced especially in the mobile market, and beacons have certainly fueled this advancement. Beacons are Bluetooth transmitters that can be placed around, and an app can be developed to read these transmitters. Service companies can benefit from the proximity features of beacon technology.

When a service company deploys a technician to a job site, on a regular route, there is always a concern with them arriving on time, how long they are at the job site and when they have left the job site. With beacon technology a number of tracking features are available. With beacon transmitters deployed at the job sites once the service technician is on the premises and the beacon is triggered a report is logged for the day/time of arrival. Conversely when the technician leaves the premises another report is logged for the day/time of departure. An added feature of the proximity setting is geo- fencing of the job site out to 5 miles. With this feature a trigger event can be sent to dispatch to inform them of the technicians imminent arrival and to aid in future scheduling.

Beacon Deployments: Hosting Industry

Much of what we our mobile marketing today is fueled by beacons. Beacons are Bluetooth transmitters that can be placed around an event. If someone downloads an app that uses beacon technology, his or her phone will respond with a notification when the phone comes within range of a beacon. The popular use of beacons can be credited to the rise in smart phone usage. Because people are glued to their phones, developers and dreamers have come up with different uses of Beacon Deployment. This week’s topic is the beacon deployment in the Hosting Industry.

Beacon deployment in the convention hosting industry. With this industry a wide variety of offerings and information can be delivered to the vendors and registered participants. Upon registering for the event the user is asked to download an app specifically for the event. With this app pre-visit communications via email and text can be delivered to all. Once onsite for the event the welcome message can be delivered to any app enabled device that enters the geo-fence perimeter established for the event. As the attendee moves through the facility they will trigger unique proximity beacons, which in turn will deliver specific content relevant to the location.
