In today’s modern world, applications have become a huge part of our daily lives: from social media, games, photo editing tools, to messaging — and all kinds of apps imaginable.
Apps serve different functions and essentially make our lives easier. For businesses, apps are among the most convenient ways to reach customers at the touch of their fingertips, especially now as we slowly adapt to the new normal. Apps can be a mean for customers to:
- learn more about your products/services
- engage with your brand
- easily purchase your products
For dispensaries, having a native app is important — it can hugely improve the customer experience while staying compliant to regulations.
How can you leverage the benefits of apps for your dispensary? Alpine IQ has the answer: our native app service offers an extensive amount of AI-powered features to help dispensaries harness the power of apps for your business.
What is a native app?
An application, or app, is a type of software that allows you to carry out specific tasks that it’s programmed to do. Apps can run on various devices, such as desktop or laptop computers (desktop apps), web browsers (web app), smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices (mobile app).
A native app, in particular, are developed for a specific platform (i.e., Android, iOS, or Windows) and are installed directly onto a mobile device through application stores such as Google Play or Apple’s App Store.
Native apps function as a standalone app (no web browsers are needed), so it typically performs faster and more efficiently than mobile web apps.
Another benefit of native apps is that they can take full advantage of a device’s native features and hardware — thus the term, native. For example, a native app programmed to edit photos can access a device’s phone storage and photo album; a ride-sharing app can have access to a device’s location feature; and so forth.
