Number of screens

The bigger functionality you want to have in the app, the more screens you will need to develop and design.

Design complexity

The volume and complexity of work determine the design cost. Depending on the style you prefer, we can make a minimalistic design or create custom illustrations and animations to make your app stand out.

Third-party services integration

Integrating third-party APIs enables you to embed maps, payment systems, social networks and many other services in your application without the need to develop them from scratch.

Chat

You can expand your chat functionality and adjust it to your needs by adding various features: online/offline mode, audio/video message recording, deleting/editing messages, etc.

Streaming

Streaming is on-demand live delivering of audio and video information, which can be used for different purposes from live video chats to educational webinars. It is a complex feature that needs specific server preparation.

High load server

A high load server ensures stable work of the system with a large number of users simultaneously using the application.

Ratings

An interactive feature that allows users to give and receive rates and leave comments.

Advanced administration panel

It is an admin board with extended functionality, which includes analytics, reporting, payment control and other options.

Low-level programming

It is applied to allow the app to interact with the hardware part of a smartphone (accelerometers, GPS, sensors, etc.). For example, an app that counts the steps of the user.

Adjustable system

A system of modules and elements, which the end user can customize according to their needs.

Research

iOS mobile app development starts with analyzing competitors and understanding the end users and their needs. We also define the main app functionality, as well as the time and cost of the project.

Wireframing

At this stage we make sketches outlining the key features and components of the app and specify its characteristics. We will create a prototype with the main screens so that you will be able to see how the app works before the development phase.

Design

The app development can begin only when you have the design ready. We develop a concept defining the visual direction of the future app (color palette, styles of graphical elements, fonts, etc.) and create navigation layout.

Development

After the scope of work was determined and design is ready developers can dive into the code. We incorporate validated features and carry out ongoing testing to deliver a quality product.

Testing

Our QA team tests the application for performance, usability, security, stress loads, etc. to ensure the system works efficiently and does not have any bugs.

Support

The code is changing with the infrastructure and systems where it exists. We offer support services after the app release and keep it up-to-date with the latest requirements.

Our principles

The end user is our priority

We analyze our customers’ business and the market needs and make the apps focusing on the end users.

Thought-out app usability

We pay specific attention to creating attractive and intuitive user interfaces, which will enable the user to navigate through the app easily and will leave a positive first impression.

Plan to create your own educational or entertainment platform

FAQ

Developing mobile software products is a gradual, complicated process. We prepared the most frequently asked questions to make it easier for you to understand how mobile app development works. If you have any further questions or would like to tell us about your project, сall us: +1 833 933 0204

?

I am afraid of sharing my idea – what if it gets stolen?

We guarantee that your ideas are safe with us by signing a Non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with each client.

?

Do you work with individuals?

Yes, we work both with individuals and legal entities.

?

Can I pay for your services by installments?

Yes. The client makes an advance payment for the first stage of work and then pays at the end of each step.

?

Can you make an app if I have a prototype and/or design ready?

Sure, we will analyze your materials and offer you possible options. If you have a development team, we can make only the design for you.

?

Are your developers in-house employees or remote workers (subcontracted freelancers)?

All our 100+ employees are working in our office and are employed according to the labor legislation. You can visit us, meet the developers in person and see our work in real time.

?

Can you explain in detail the development process in your company?

First of all, we create a detailed interactive prototype which serves as a basis for further development. We can prepare all accompanying materials at this stage if required.
To provide effective project management, we use flexible development approaches (Agile, SCRUM, Kanban).
We write the user part of an application in Swift or Objective-C, and the server side in Python, Node.js and Go. Besides, we use IaaS and PaaS cloud services. Throughout the development process, we write Unit-tests, and our QA team controls that the product works well on every device.

?

How can I control the development process from my side?

You can control the quality and timing of the project remotely. We will provide you an online-access to the project management system, where you will be able to see the progress on the ongoing tasks. You will also have an opportunity to check the developers’ work through the time-tracker – a system which automatically takes a screenshot of the desktop every 10 minutes.

?

I don’t know anything about SCRUM, how can I track the progress on my project and communicate with you?

If you find it necessary, we will explain how SCRUM works, and in case you do not have enough time to control the development, our Project Management team will take the full control over the process and report on the results.
Before every sprint (a short stage) we discuss the features and functionality of the app, approve the tasks list, and warn you about possible risks, e.g., in the change of timing. Therefore, you will always be able to manage your time and budget in advance.

?

Do you support projects after their release?

Yes, we provide technical support after the app release on a commercial basis. We will fix all bugs and errors and adapt the product to the infrastructure and system changes. As a result, we will deliver a stable and productive application.
