Application Development

Welcome to Astoria Media Group's Application Development page. We specialize in designing and building innovative and efficient applications that drive growth and success for businesses across various industries.


At Astoria Media Group, we believe in creating applications that are not only functional and reliable but also provide an engaging user experience. Our team combines technical expertise with creativity to deliver applications that meet your business needs and exceed your expectations.

Your Needs

Every successful app begins with a deep dive into the business it's meant to serve.

That's where we start at Astoria Media Group. We spend time getting to know you, your business, and your goals. This helps us create an app that truly meets your needs.

We use interactive workshops, surveys, and face-to-face chats with your team. This helps us get a complete picture of what your business needs from this app. But we don't stop there. We also look at your target audience. What do they like? What do they need? By answering these questions, we can make sure your app hits the mark.

Next, we map out the key features of your app. We focus on what's most valuable to your users and your business. With this clear plan, we can start building an app that’s both useful and effective.

The end result? An app that aligns with your business goals and delights your users.

Our team is committed to delivering an app that not only works but also helps your business grow and succeed.

Designing the
Perfect Solution

Design is where the magic happens.

It's where your app starts to take shape. At Astoria Media Group, we put our creative hats on and start turning your ideas into reality. And we make sure it's not just good to look at, but also easy and fun to use.

We begin by sketching out the user journey. What's the first thing your users see when they open your app? What steps do they need to take to complete a task? By mapping out these journeys, we can create an intuitive design that feels natural to use.

Next, we bring in the visuals. We select colors, typefaces, and images that reflect your brand's identity. This helps to make your app feel like a natural extension of your business.

Then, we test, tweak, and test again. We make sure every button, every swipe, every tap feels right. We want your users to enjoy every moment they spend in your app.

Through all this, our goal is to create a design that not only looks fantastic but also provides a smooth and engaging user experience.

We want your app to be a place where your users love to spend their time.

Developing Your Application

Now, we roll up our sleeves and bring your app to life.

This is where the sketches and plans turn into a real, working application. At Astoria Media Group, we're all about building robust, efficient apps that just work, every time.

We kick things off by writing clean, efficient code. Our developers are experts in the latest technologies and methodologies. They follow best practices to ensure your app is built on a solid foundation.

But we don't just set it and forget it. We test your app, rigorously, at every step of the development process. This helps us catch any glitches or issues early on, so your users always get a smooth, seamless experience.

We also keep you in the loop during this phase. We believe in transparent communication, so you'll always know how your app is coming along. Plus, we're always here to answer any questions you may have.

By the end of this phase, you'll have a functional, reliable app that's ready to go live. But we don't stop there.

We'll continue to support and improve your app, making sure it's always at the top of its game.

Launching and

Launching your app is a big moment, and we make sure it goes off without a hitch.

At Astoria Media Group, we take care of all the technical details so you can focus on celebrating this exciting milestone.

We start by preparing your app for the launch. This includes final testing, bug fixing, and setting up servers if needed. We also help you submit your app to the App Store or Google Play Store, making sure all their guidelines are met.

Once your app is live, we're not done. In fact, we're just getting started. We provide ongoing support and maintenance to keep your app running smoothly. This includes regular updates, performance checks, and quick fixes if any issues arise.

But we don't stop at keeping your app up and running. We also work on keeping it relevant and competitive. We continuously monitor user feedback and industry trends. This helps us make informed decisions about new features or improvements to your app.

Launching an app is not the end of a journey, but the beginning of a new one.

We're here to walk that path with you, ensuring your app continues to grow and succeed long after its launch.

App vs. Website

It seems like everyone is talking about apps and websites, but what exactly is the difference? Apps and websites are two very different components of the internet that we often use interchangeably even though they serve many different purposes.  But first, here are a few stats from the past decade.


Percentage of all web traffic through mobile devices:
The year-over-year growth rate rate from 2012 through 2017 was 46%.


Percentage of all web traffic through mobile devices:
The year-over-year growth rate rate from 2017 through 2022 was 5%.

At Astoria Media Group we offer both application development and website development. Let's look at the key differences.


Apps are designed for touchscreens and optimized for different devices.

Websites are designed to be viewed on any device with a web browser, but they are not tailored to specific devices.


Apps are optimized for specific devices and usually faster and more responsive. 

Websites need to be responsive to users across desktop and mobile; making it much slower.


Apps are architected for encrypted access and transmission of secure data.

Websites are often architected in a shared web space that increases its areas of vulnerability.


Apps require a team of engineers making it a more costly option.

Websites can facilitate a wide array business operations and thus costs vary based on the scope of the project.
