Consulting

Enterprise Solutions

The Post-PC era is upon us. As Microsoft’s newly inducted CEO, Satya Nadella states, “We’re in a Mobile First, Cloud First world.”

With over a million apps on Apple’s App Store and an equal amount on Google Play, an organization must determine whether a Native App solution which takes advantage of smart phone features such as Location, Camera, Email and Push Notifications is a value to their enterprise and customers.

Our team has designed, developed and released well over a dozen native iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android apps and games combined. We’re here to consult to the Enterprise Client to design and develop the mobile technology necessary for their transition into Mobile.

If your target audience is large, we build for the most popular platforms that allow you to reach these customers with a native app or game. When building an internal mobile solution for an Enterprise, we will evaluate  and advise which platform best suits the needs of our client.

Featured: Internal Enterprise App for the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Emergency Operations Center.

The technologies we focus on are Objective-C for exclusive iOS, Java for native Android or Unity 3D for cross platform deployment.

App Support

App Support

The easiest way to solve any issues with an app is to try one or all of the following:

1. Take the App out of Memory and start it again. Double Click your iPhone’s Home Button, and remove it from this menu by swiping up on the app.

2. Delete the App from your iPhone and try to reinstall it from iTunes.

3. Remove all other apps from Memory by doing Step 1 for all other apps.

4. Try powering down your device by holding the home button and power button at the same time and hold it for about 10-15 seconds.

If  none of the above steps work and an app isn’t loading properly or is crashing, you can help us detect the problem by downloading the Console App for free. A screen shot of the Console App’s warnings can be taken following a crash by pressing the home screen and lock button at the same time.

Ensure the screen shot includes warnings specific to the App in question and email it to our technical support with a description of the issue to: john (at)vectorbloom (dot) com.

Mac Support

We haven’t had any reported issues for our Mac or Chrome Desktop version of Big Top Ballet. If you experience any crashes or issues playing Big Top Ballet please email: game (at) bigtopballet (dot ) com, Tweet mention or comment on our game’s Facebook Page.
