Atomic was really good about getting a deep understanding of our goals—understanding our business and our business case. There’s not an endless supply of money or time, and they helped us figure out what's going to have the best impact.

Our mobile development skillset is both broad and deep. But just as important, we have the expertise to help you make smart tech decisions—creating a mobile app that fits your situation, your business, and your budget.

Ios App Development

iOS App Development

iOS is a great first platform for new mobile products. Apple leads the way in user experience and beautiful design, and the platform is full of early adopters.

Atomic creates beautiful, sophisticated iOS apps, using the latest tools and integrating with Bluetooth LE, iBeacons, geotracking, and other innovations. We’ll help you create a smart first release, so you can launch and refine your product before expanding to other platforms.

Android App Development

⅔ of smartphones in the US run on Android, making it essential for mobile apps that need to reach a broad market. Android is also great for internal business tools because it integrates well with Google services and is available on many different devices.

Atomic will create a polished, secure Android app that works smoothly across the wide variety of Android devices and OS versions.

Cross Platform

Cross-Platform App Development

Cross-platform tools like Xamarin and React Native let you build your app once, then publish it for both iOS and Android. This economical approach is great for apps that should launch on both platforms simultaneously, and those that will be maintained by internal teams.

Atomic can create a rock-solid cross-platform mobile app that will run securely and smoothly on both iOS and Android, allowing you to reach more users for less money.

Responsive Web App

Responsive Web App Development

The most economical way to offer a mobile experience is with a web app that also works in a mobile phone browser. With just one code base, you can offer your product to web, phone, and tablet users. It’s a great solution for content-heavy apps that don’t need phone hardware like GPS or the camera.

Atomic has built many sophisticated web apps, including lots of responsive ones for both tablets and mobile phones.

Web Cloud Backend

Web/Cloud Backend Development

Most mobile and tablet apps also require other software to store and manage data. Atomic can create a web app for managing content and accounts, set up cloud storage with services like AWS, and integrate with ERPs or other enterprise data systems.

We’ll build a mobile app ecosystem that safeguards your information and gives your users a smooth, reliable experience every time.

Device Connectivity / IoT

Mobile apps are a powerful way to interact with physical devices and gather data from them. A smart device+mobile system can empower users to work smarter, make better decisions, and reduce waste.

Atomic can help you strategize, create, and prepare to support a connected product that will bring your service offering to the next level. We’re experienced with embedded software development, Bluetooth LE, SMS, Zigbee, and various IoT software platforms.
