We use an Agile development approach and build apps primarily in Swift and Objective-C when necessary

When it comes to shipping successful Android apps, our team is our greatest asset, but we also use our expertise in languages like Java, Kotlin

When it comes to hybrid mobile apps, we utilize technologies such as React Native, Flutter, Ionic and Angular JS

Most modern people would find it difficult to imagine their day using a smartphone «just for calls». Mobile devices jumped far beyond the primary goal behind them — making phone calls and sending simple instant messages. Today, even a basic phone presents a platform to house various applications for everyday use and turns thousands of people into grateful users of more and more apps.

Our Mobile App Development Process

01. Research

All apps start with an idea. We help you refine that idea into a sold basis for an application. Our initial analysis includes actual demographics, motivations, behavior patterns and goals of your buyer persona. During each stage of the process, we keep the end user in mind. Another important part of this phase is analyzing the competition. A detailed study of your competitor’s app will help you figure out what features are absent in their app so that you could include it in yours and make it stand out.

02. Wireframes & Prototype

The next step is to document and wireframe the app, to understand future functionalities. We draw detailed sketches of the envisioned app, which helps us uncover any usability issues. Sketching does a lot more than merely tracing steps, it can be a powerful communication and collaboration tool. When we’re done sketching, wireframing will help refine the ideas and arrange all components of the design in the right way. Next, we will create a roadmap or a storyboard, to demonstrate the relationship between each screen and how users will navigate through the app.

We also build a rapid prototype. You can’t truly comprehend the touch experience unless you can use the app yourself and see how it works and flows. To allow you to do this, we build a prototype that gets the app concept into a user’s hands as quickly as possible to see how it works for the most common use case. We use rough and not exhaustive wireframes for this phase. This will help us see if things are moving in the right direction.  The prototype will also give different stakeholders the first look at the app.

03. Design

During the design phase, our UX designer plans the interaction between design elements, while the UI designer builds the look and feel of your app. This is a multi-step process with many review stages. Depending on your project scope and app budget, this design phase can be completed in a single afternoon or it can take a team multiple hours.

04. Develop

The development phase generally starts early on. As the development progresses, the app goes through a set of stages. In the initial stage, the core functionality is not tested. In the second phase (beta), most of the proposed functionality is incorporated. The app will have also gone through light testing and bug fixing. At this stage, the app can be released to a select group of external users for more testing.  After the bugs in the beta stage are fixed, the app will move to the deployment phase where it’s ready for release.

05. Testing

In mobile app development, it’s a good idea to test early and often. We will refer to the original design and planning documents while building the various test cases. The first test is always user acceptance testing, where we discover whether your mobile app works for your intended users or not. Once your application passes the users acceptance test, you know your solution “works”. You should also make your application available for a beta trial, either through the enrollment of previously identified groups or an open solicitation for participants. The feedback you receive from beta users will help you find out whether the app’s functions are operating well in a real-world situation.

06. Deployment

Now your app is ready to submit. Choose a day and key up a formal launch and our team will handle the deployment. For different application stores, the policies of launching an application are different. Keep in mind, this is not the end. App development doesn’t end at launch. As your application gets in the hands of users, feedback will pour in, and you will need to incorporate that feedback into future versions of the app. Every app will need updates and new features. Typically, as soon as the first version of the app is released, the development cycle begins anew.

07. Maintenance

Providing frequent and free updates is an important part to gaining customer loyalty.  Evolving technologies promote the need of incorporating newly developed features in the existing apps. Regular updates help keep an app at par with the latest technology and convince users that the developers are constantly trying to provide them a better user experience. Updates can be deployed easily, which makes delivering new features to the app effortless.

Mobile app maintenance is a crucial factor for the success of an app and highly recommended after the app launch. This is done to ensure smooth and improved functioning of the mobile app. App maintenance, for the most part, is about keeping your app up-to-date and bug-free. As you acquire users and get feedback, you will need to incorporate that into the bug fixes and feature ads.
