Windows Phone
Development

Softeq has been a long-term Microsoft certified partner with a verified Mobility competence among others. Within the Microsoft technologies domain we've been specifically focusing on Windows Phone, Windows RT, as well as Windows Embedded Compact. We know how to implement easy-to-use, efficient, and reliable mobile solutions both on the application and low-level component tier.

Anticipating the Next Windows Boom – Windows 10 in the Spotlight

With the Windows Phone platform holding a tight grip on our list of core mobile app development competencies, we consider the arrival of Windows 10, installable both on PCs and mobile phones, a major industry highlight. Softeq’s team has set its hands to testing the possibilities of the revamped platform. The Universal Windows Platform targeting a wide variety of devices with different form factors and input modalities, adaptive UI controls along with new layout panels, API contracts, to name a few — Windows 10 has these and tons of other capabilities in store. We at Softeq are already looking forward to putting into action dozens of app ideas geared to users of Windows-powered devices, encompassing solutions primarily focused on desktop users and system-level software such as drivers.

Hand in Hand with Microsoft’s Innovative Tech

Having close ties with Microsoft, Softeq was among the first few technology firms to obtain access and investigate Microsoft’s high-speed video APIs on Windows Phone. Unlike iOS, a rival mobile platform that was among the pioneers to allow implementing slow motion video capturing, Windows Phone is not quite up to the capability. In similar situations, when a vital technical element is missing or is beyond reach, we go all in to explore the possibilities. Alternatively, we just build the absent component from scratch.

That’s how we approached the task of creating a mobile Windows Phone sports app that was to enable precise video recording of an athlete’s activity with the purpose to assess their professional performance through a slowmo playback.

We feel quite in our elements to be engaged in projects drawing on technologies yet unavailable for broad market use. Whether your next big thing requires some non-released technology or the target device is still a product in the making, Softeq’s background in electrical engineering and hardware design and development, as well as years of practical experience, provide a strong leverage for bringing all the missing elements together.

C# for Mobile Business Apps

C# demonstrates a steady growth in popularity among developers building enterprise mobility solutions. Designed to support cross-platform capabilities, this language has proved invaluable for building sophisticated applications across desktop, web, and mobile on all major operating systems — Windows, iOS, Android, Mac, and more. Key component of Xamarin, C# enables a highly productive and easy-to-use coding environment catering for custom development needs on each target platform with a single, shared C# codebase. Softeq offers a professional Xamarin-skilled team with a host of special tools and building facilitators helping achieve a significantly shorter turnaround time.

Leveraging the Microsoft Technology Unattainable for Common Development Use to Extend the Cross-platform Capabilities of a Sports App POC

Softeq extended the capabilities of a mobile sports POC app built for a global sports giant by recreating it on Windows Phone. In order to replicate the complete app’s functionality, the team had to address several issues. The hardware-driven slow motion video capturing could be realized through a high-speed video API available exclusively to Microsoft and its select vendors.
