Anatomy of a Powerful Mobile App

The Dentistry Today mobile app is developed to provide fast and reliable information to all dentists, wherever they may be. What makes a powerful mobile app is the infrastructure and intelligence behind it.

Utilizing the full capabilities of technology, The Dentistry Today mobile app was created by a top rated application developer in New York City, Hubspire. A trailblazer in the mobile application development sphere, Hubspire has been instrumental in building people-centered tech solutions for world class innovations.

Internal Parts

As a mobile app development company, Hubspire’s innovative team of engineers, developers and technology experts developed the Dentistry Today mobile app in React Native programming language. This allows Hubspire to use the same source code to develop for both IOS and Android. React Native is a framework developed by Facebook for creating native-style apps for iOS & Android under one common language, JavaScript. With the mobile app built on this framework, it runs more efficiently and is more agile. It runs smoother and loads faster with less memory required.

Its backend is powered by AWS Elastic Beanstalk. AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides scalability for an application to handle peaks in workload or traffic while minimizing costs. This seamless infrastructure helps Hubspire to automatically handle the deployment details of the mobile app’s capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. Within minutes, the application will be ready to use without any infrastructure or resource configuration work needed. AWS Elastic Beanstalk allows Hubspire to focus on writing code rather than spending time managing and configuring servers, databases, load balancers, firewalls, and networks.

Hubspire also puts great value on scalability and security. The mobile app was built with extensive privacy protocols and security assurances and housed in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). As the main storage, Amazon S3 helps Hubspire store and protect any amount of data for a range of use cases, such as mobile applications. It has easy-to-use management features to organize data and configure finely-tuned access controls to meet business, organizational, and compliance requirements. By its industry-leading performance, scalability, availability, and durability, Hubspire is able to scale its storage resources up and down to meet fluctuating demands.

In conjunction, Hubspire uses Bitbucket – a Git repository management solution to have a central place to manage git repositories and collaborate on the source code for an efficient development flow.

The Dentistry Today mobile app runs on Node.js server – a platform that’s built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime for easily building Server Side Language /API. Node. js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, which is ideal for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

While not all mobile apps require a database, it is essential to have one for a mobile app like Dentistry Today’s for it to handle a lot of information such as users and frequent news updates. Known for its flexibility and scalability, The app uses a NoSQL database, providing it a mechanism for storage and retrieval of data that is modeled in means other than the tabular relations used in relational databases. As storage costs rapidly decreased, the amount of data applications needed to store and query increased. This data came in all shapes and sizes—structured, semistructured, and polymorphic—and defining the schema in advance became nearly impossible. NoSQL databases allow Hubspire to store huge amounts of unstructured data.


External Parts

As a community fixture, The Dentistry Today is all about connecting dentists with the right information, and the right support. As its main messaging solution, their mobile app uses Twilio. Twilio uses a secure Multi Factor Authentication – which allows it to send SMS to the user via a code and can be used to login to the mobile app. Twilio’s SMS functionality allows sending and receiving text messages globally, while providing a well-built API for programmable SMS that can scale to production quickly.

The success behind any mobile app development is its highly skilled and talented team. Hubspire’s innovative team of management consultants, engineers, developers, designers and technology experts deliver digital transformation and technology services to translate robust ideas into effective solutions and enable clients to outperform their competition.

Hubspire takes an agile, consultative and collaborative approach to creating customized solutions across the digital value chain. By employing an agile software development methodology, working with small businesses, startups, government agencies and large corporations makes Hubspire understand business goals better and can devise customized solutions, maximize application availability, agility, and predictability.

The team has numerous areas of expertise – digital transformation, enterprise mobility, data analytics, IoT integration, cybersecurity advisory services and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. With Agile scrum methodology, Hubspire can put focus on each area of expertise through a project management system that relies on incremental development.

Agile Scrum methodology follows an iteration that consists of two- to four-week sprints, where each sprint’s goal is to build the most important features first and come out with a minimum viable and deliverable product. More features are built into the product in subsequent sprints and are adjusted based on stakeholder and customer feedback between sprints. This approach provides stakeholders with the highest business value in the least amount of time.

Agile scrum methodology also requires frequent testing, planning and goal setting, which helps the scrum team focus on the current sprint’s objectives and increase productivity. For testing, Hubspire uses Testflight and Google Play. With Testflight, Hubspire can conduct beta testing on app versions of iOS, tvOS, and watchOS apps and gather valuable feedback for developers before it gets released on the App Store. Beta testing is also done for Android devices via Google Play, which lets users try a new app before it’s officially released and gather user feedback on its features.
