Windows Mobile is the 3rd most widely used platform for developing mobile applications.
Unlike iOS or Android applications, Windows Mobile 8 applications run on mobile phones and tablets (surfaces) but also on desktops with the Windows 8 operating system. This consistent user experience between mobile devices, desktop computers, and game consoles is a unique advantage for the Microsoft system.
In Europe, sales for Windows 8 Phones have recently skyrocketed and exceed Apple’s OS in some European markets such as Italy.
Another major asset of Windows 8 applications is their strong interaction with the operating system itself. Thus, a cinema ticket search application will be directly linked to the search engine which, by using the services of this application, will include the relevant results of the application in the list of results. The same goes for social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), which link their publishing services to the operating system, thus avoiding the necessity of a dedicated social network application to publish an article or a picture.
Working with Pentalog helped us significantly, they responded really well to the urgency of the situation. After just one week we had found a qualified freelancer to undertake our mission. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the selection and administration process, so that the mission could run as smoothly as possible.
We were convinced by Pentalog’s approach: advice from a CTO to help us architect our solution, 2 freelancers and support to find funding. In addition, we were seduced by the price of courses but especially by the implementation time: 2 months instead of 5 or 6 months if we were on a development from scratch.
Working with Pentalog is very reassuring. As their CTO had worked with us on prior improvements to the app, I didn’t think twice about calling on them again when I found out that the first developer was unavailable. Four days later they had found someone equally competent and we didn’t have to worry about the admin side of things. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the mission from start to finish, to make sure it ran as smoothly as possible.
