Types of Shopify Application Development

Something for everyone

If you want a solid tech fix or add new feature, searching for the perfect-match app will leave you bewildered. Mainly because there are so many choices and so many apps in almost all categories from merchandise management, content, social media, to customers and more.

Let us help you clear what types of Shopify application development we do.

Distributing apps

Public apps, available for install on Shopify app store and custom app for custom features are amongst distributing apps. Public app clients ask us for development are available for many merchants whereas custom app development is meant for a single merchant. Depending upon client requirements we choose the app type but once selected, can’t go back.

Private & unpublished apps

Private apps are highly specialized and meant for a single store. Such apps are meant for the store in question particularly and may not be reused like public apps. Unpublished app is another type of public app but for one or multiple merchants with the same functionality. Private and unpublished apps are no longer developed as Shopify has deprecated them. So, we do not recommend developing such apps.

Embedded apps

For extending experience of a Shopify store, such apps are of great help. These apps are integrated with the store using Shopify App Bridge and can be seen in the Shopify admin or POS directly. One of the plus points of developing such apps is that already existing user interface elements can be used for a new functionality.

Standalone apps

Unlike embedded apps, such apps don’t integrate into Shopify admin or POS directly. This means you have to take another step in case you want them inside your store. Usually, embedded apps are recommended as they consume less time in development and integration into the retailer’s store.
