How to Start?
Simply complete our contact form, and we'll arrange a call. Here's our step-by-step service process for custom mobile application development:
We engage with the customer to understand:
- App concept
- Target audience
- Business objectives
- Resource availability
Exploration and Proposal
We evaluate available tech options, assess their financial feasibility, and prepare a proposal that outlines:
- How the app will appear in its initial release
- Team composition
- First release timelines and costs
Requirements Specification and UI/UX Design
Our business analysts and UI/UX designer collaborate to create a detailed outline of features to be included in the first release, and a visual interface design, focusing on:
- Customer's desires
- Probable users expectations
- Competitors' proposals
- Customer feedback
Strategic and Tactical Planning
Under the guidance of the customer and following their priorities, we:
- Map out strategic plan - milestones and their deadlines
- Schedule tasks for the next week
Afterward, the customer will use a project management system to assign tasks and monitor progress.
Incremental Development and Mobile App Release
We develop app features in small increments while:
- Constantly tracking resources spent and schedule adherence
- Collecting feedback post each increment
- Adjusting plan as needed
After completion, the app is launched on the App Store and Google Play, beginning to gather users.
Mobile App Improvement and Maintenance
After launch, the customer evaluates user feedback to decide the app's future direction. Based on this, the team develops the plan for the next release and works on:
- Expanding functionality
- Monitoring and optimizing performance
- Improving user experience
Once the app achieves the desired state, the team is downsized to 1-2 people for routine support.
What's a native app?
A native app is a mobile application developed for a specific device platform, either iOS or Android, with separate code written for each one, ensuring optimal performance and integration with the device's hardware.
What's a cross-platform app?
A cross-platform app is developed using a single codebase, allowing it to operate natively on both Android and iOS platforms. This approach speeds up development and reduces costs.
What's a hybrid app?
A hybrid app is developed with a single codebase, allowing it to run on both Android and iOS through a native shell. It may use plugins for limited hardware function access, but with slower performance compared to native apps.
Who builds mobile apps?
Mobile apps are built by a team of specialists: designers create the app's look and user experience; frontend developers handle the interface and functionality; backend developers manage the server-side operations; and testers ensure the app works correctly.
How to make a custom mobile app?
To create a custom mobile app, consult developers. Together, you will discuss and finalize the app's concept and agree on a plan. Afterwards, you will control its realization by testing the ready features and giving feedback to the developers.
What makes a bad mobile app?
A business deems an app bad if it fails to attract users, has low engagement, receives negative feedback, misses revenue goals, offers poor ROI, or harms the brand's reputation through poor performance or security issues.
What is the highest risk of application development?
From a business perspective, the highest risk in mobile application development is failing to meet user needs, leading to low adoption and revenue loss. Other risks include budget overruns, missed deadlines, and wrong technical decisions.
Do people prefer mobile apps or websites?
People's preferences vary depending on context, convenience, and functionality needs. Mobile apps often offer better user experiences, personalized content, and offline access. Websites are more versatile and easily accessible without installation.
Is a website or an app better for business?
Websites are universally accessible and easier to update, suitable for broad reach and content sharing. Apps are ideal for regular interaction and tailored services, offering personalized experiences and enhancing customer loyalty and engagement.
