As of 2019, over 2 million apps are available for download on the Google Play store, while 1.83 million apps are available on the Apple App Store.

The question to ask, does your company benefit from having a mobile application or does it really need a mobile version of its website? If you say mobile application then follow us through the process below.

STEP 1: RESEARCH

The first step in any development is research. This step is crucial in seeing what is already on the market. Does your idea already exist? Is there a copyright or patent that will prohibit you from moving forward? Is the requirement technologically infeasible?

STEP 2: WIREFRAMING & SCHEMATICS

The second step is to start building the wireframe. Here is where we start to understand the objective of the mobile application. What are some of the expectations and desires? Where are the gotchas and what functions might be needed. 

You might be asking what is a wireframe. Think about it as the architectural plans for a home. Wireframes are a visual outline for a mobile user exchange or UX. Its purpose is to present interaction, synchronization, functions, and content between pages. A wireframe is a rough draft of the mobile application; it is the bare bones of the project. Many companies skip this step as many clients are not willing to pay the time to get it done right. When this step is skipped then problems come later that drive unexpected costs. A well thought out plan helps to reduce the burden of unexpectations later. Wireframing can be as simple as doodles on a paper or a the use of a digital software like Mockflow or Invision.

STEP 3: DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT

As we have laid out the plan for the application it is time to start designing the look and begin program development. Due to the variety of mobile systems, we use the Ionic framework for our mobile application development. We design a logo and create a branding guide. We start to takes the wireframes and add colors and fonts. Images start being added and the look of the application is created. At the same time our programmers are taking the schematics and wireframes and coding the functions and starting the form validations and database interactions. This is the longest and most tedious stage. Things that were expected to work are now being relooked at. Newer ways of doing things have been founded and the process is getting closer to completion. We are now getting closer to the testing and debug stage.

OTHER FRAMEWORKS WE MAY USE

Ionic Framework is a free, open source mobile UI toolkit for developing high-quality cross-platform apps for native iOS, Android, and the web—all from a single codebase. By utilizing Ionic we are able to reduce the costs if building from scratch in the codebase for the many operating systems that exist.

STEP 4: TEST AND DEBUG

This is a very crucial step in the development of your mobile application. Like stated in the previous steps, if you skip over any of them you are hurting yourself in the end. Each step plays a crucial role. In order to present a great first impression you must allow us to test your application appropriately. As we test we will debug and fix the issues. This will not only allow a great launch but a better user experience. We use multiple system to test and debug your mobile application.

STEP 5: DEPLOY

After all the hardwork we are ready for launch. This is the completion of the project. Depending on the terms of agreement we provide a 90-day guarantee for any function issues. After the 90-days we highly recommend our monthly support package.
