How is Spark different?

There are lots of app development tools

The primary focus of most traditional development tools is to simply switch the programming language from the native platform (Objective-C or Java) to another (Javascript, Ruby, C#). Little attention is given to actually reducing the coding of the app itself.

Another recent trend is building business apps online. These websites provide a simple way to create basic apps. Although easy, they tend to be very minimal, difficult to customize, and often require company data to be stored on their website.

App Development Evolution

Spark is a hybrid framework that goes a step further... it includes pre-built architectural scaffolding for an enterprise-class app that reduces development and the expertise needed to create business apps. It is fully customizable allowing complex workflow processes and connections to any data source or service.

  • Benefits of Spark's Framework

    Just like Excel for spreadsheets and Wordpress for websites

    Reduced development effort
    Instead of developers creating from the ground up, Spark provides a ready-to-use reference architecture that employs best practices and design principles for enterprise mobile apps.
    Greater stability and performance
    Because Spark is the engine used by apps from different companies, errors and performance issues are minimized since those problems are likely to have already been resolved.
    "Living" apps
    Apps live longer by continually improving and supporting future Android enhancements automatically through updated Spark releases that incorporate new features and capabilities.


    • No other app framework has all of these features… most just substitute the native platform APIs with a different programming language… they don’t provide the foundation to actually reduce mobile design and development effort when creating enterprise-class apps.

      Spark lets you develop at a high abstraction level using the native platform to create robust apps very quickly.
