The Middle East region holds great potential as far as the mobile market is concerned. This is a huge market which is normally neglected by businesses and needs to be tapped into. This is justified by the fact that from the year 2000 to 2012, Arabic mobile users have increased by a staggering 30-fold!
Therefore, it is quite shocking to know that although more than 41% of the Saudi internet users are on Twitter, less than 1% of the total web pages and even lesser apps are available in Arabic. This imbalance should be addressed by using the latest technologies and developing useful apps to cater to all the needs of this Middle East mobile market, which can in turn help you expand your market share.
Flatworld Solutions has worked with various companies based in the Middle East and has developed excellent applications including some government-licensed mobile apps. Our team understands the fact that it is not only important to develop a great app with excellent aesthetics but also understand the different culture and language well while doing so.
Some of the Arabic app development services we provide include:
Arabic mobile application development can be very different as compared to regular app development in English. It is very important to understand the language, its usage, and the culture followed in these regions. There are certain things which need to be taken care of while developing apps for such a culturally different audience and our team of highly experienced mobile app developers understands that very well. Some of the few things we take care of while developing Arabic apps include -
It is well known that Arabic language follows a right-to-left reading convention. The same needs to be incorporated in the app as well. This ensures that the Arabic users are comfortable with the app layout, the sliders etc. Our team is trained to work with suitable APIs and RTL frameworks in order to provide the app with the required navigation scheme
The Arabic font is very different from other languages and we have to ensure its compatibility during the development of Arabic apps. Some of the fonts available online are free but are not so well-designed. At Flatworld, we work with high-quality purchased Arabic fonts which are approved by our client for in-app use
We, at Flatworld, understand the importance of using appropriate images in the Arabic apps being developed. We do not use the same image for the English and Arabic versions of the app. Just flipping the image horizontally is not the solution for this problem, and therefore we use highly specific images for the same. Incorrectly used images can lead to consumer misunderstanding and may lead to other severe problems
When creating a bilingual app both the language typefaces need to match with each other aesthetically so the pages look similar to each other. Arabic font is wider and shorter as compared to Latin alphabets hence the typefaces need to be considered while developing the layouts. We ensure that the app users are comfortable with the Arabic layout and typesetting in case the app needs to be in multiple languages
Arabic apps are one of the toughest types of applications to code and to make it multilingual it becomes even tougher. Our team of Arabic app developers is skilled in developing high-quality Arabic apps which feature smooth transitions from one language to another
All apps developed by Flatworld undergo strict and rigorous quality checks before being published. Apart from in-house testing, our apps are also checked by the client to evaluate its working and to see if all the requirements are incorporated or not
We, at Flatworld Solutions, respect all the cultural aspects of the Arabic community and look to incorporate them in the app. There is a lot of difference between Western culture and Arabic culture, and therefore care needs to be taken in order to ensure regional sentiments are not hurt. Also, we follow strict procedures to ensure that we follow and adhere to all the local laws and regulations, while providing a great user experience to the customers at the same time
