Cost effective apps; fast, bespoke service

The Nuvola App Framework allows us to build bespoke mobile apps really fast. Typically we can create a fully working ‘beta’ version of your branded app, tailored to your needs, within 48 hours.

Unlike ‘build yourself’ frameworks, you never lose the personal touch with us. You get a custom, bespoke build for a predictable and reasonable cost, from a company that has been building cloud apps since before anyone called it The Cloud.

We never charge ‘per user’ costs so rather than an extra employee costing you another £20 or even £100 a month, or having to guess how many people might download your app, your costs are predictable and remain the same.¹

¹ we do not charge per user fees but if your app’s needs exceed our shared server’s capacity we may need to move you to a dedicated server. Starting costs are £30/month for this. You certainly won’t need this until your app is delivering real value.

² For apps not released via the app store (see below), notification services may not work on Apple iOS devices.

³ Integration will depend on availability of an API (application programming interface) that we can connect to.

Do you need the app stores?

We’re all used to installing our apps in the App or Play Store, then updating them when we’re told, but there’s a new way of releasing apps that works across platforms and bypasses the stores. They are called Progressive Web Apps (PWAs for short), and they work by having a web page (e.g. ourdomain.com/app) that behaves just like an app. So it prompts you to add to the home screen, runs in full screen and looks just like any other app. But not having to go through the stores gives us (and therefore you) much more flexibility and means we just code it once and it instantly works across Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, ChromeOS and any other weird and wonderful platform you might find. Google are really pushing PWAs and Apple are slightly behind the curve (so notifications don’t work on iPhones for example), but we really think it, like our framework, is the way forward.

Of course, there may be good reasons why you want your app on the App Store (like iPhone notifications), and luckily it’s possible to build a PWA (so it still works anywhere) and package it up for release on the stores. This is more work for us to release and maintain so we add a charge of £20/month for just Apple or Google or £30/month for both.
