A luncheon presentation featuring Chet Slump, iNet Solutions, brought MoKan members together on July 18 at 2000 Grand, in Kansas City. Chet, who actively designs and develops mobile and web applications for leading agriculture companies, shared his expertise about mobile apps.
He noted that apps, like web sites, are seldom a finished work. Instead, they are ever-evolving. Depending on the complexity of an app, it can easily take from two weeks to several months to design a new app. And the cost, of course, varies accordingly.
As he explained, a single app design will not work on all platforms. Apple and Android are two very different markets, as are phones vs. tablets for running a mobile application. Attendees found it interesting to learn about the approval steps that must be undertaken for Apple or Android to actually launch a new app. Chet finished his presentation walking through a few apps that are popular within the agriculture industry today.
