Mobile app architecture

by deborasumopayroll In reply to Mobile App Architecture

Business enterprises from all over the world are focusing on building the apps to reach their target audiences more simply and proactively, solving their problems, and collaborating with a shared purpose.

First of all, having the right architecture means that your mobile application is independent of external resources. All successful projects that are now running on iOS and Android were created by the manual labor of developers and were not subjected to the use of frameworks or similar means. Architecture should not rely on the existence of any library. So you can use frameworks as tools, and not try to drive your system into their limitations. Your mobile application architecture diagram should not be exposed to other operating systems and databases so that it can function regardless of the status of other programs.

The standard iOS mobile app architecture can be divided into four blocks:

Kernel level (Core OS) — works with the file system, controls the validity of various certificates belonging to the applications. Also responsible for the security of the entire system. Contains low-level access to the elements of the device.
Core Services (Core Service) — provides access to databases and file controls.
Media level (Media) — contains tools that allow for processing most media data formats.
Interface level (Cocoa Touch) — has many elements for creating mobile interfaces, and also provides the remaining layers with information coming from the user.
An MVC (Massive View Controller) and its prototypes are used to create a high-quality iOS mobile application architecture. Cocoa MVC encourages you to write Massive View Controller because the controller is so involved in the View life cycle that it is difficult to say that it is a separate entity.

Mobile app architecture types

by naveenjoshi In reply to Mobile App Architecture

There are two types of mobile app architecture - monolithic and microservice. Both the mobile app architecture have their own advantages and disadvantages while developing an application.

Out of my experience, I can suggest microservice architecture is more accurate for your application as it allows you to develop independent moving parts so, changes and feature additions affect the service only and not the entire code-base spanned across several services.
