The sooner your FirstNet App or IoT solution gets in the hands of first responders, the sooner your innovation will modernize the high-stakes work of public safety. Created for first responders’ needs, device usage and rigorous industry expectations, your products will make their communications safer, easier and more direct in case of disasters and emergencies.
We recommend you select an Application Lifecycle Management Platform to track requirements, manage projects, release and support different versions of your app. An industry-leading platform is JIRA Software from Atlassian. You may learn more about this product and license it at Atlassian Jira.
You may develop the apps using any programming language on the Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP) of your choice. We encourage you to decide early the mobile platform you wish to deploy your app on. If your app is going to be launched either only on an Android platform or an iOS platform, you may choose to use development platforms available specifically for those platforms. If your app is going to be used on both Android and iOS, select a cross-platform development environment where you can develop your app once for use on both platforms. For your convenience, here are quick links to key development resources available in the market:
