Our objective is to create a valuable, intuitive and amazing mobile experience for your users. Creating a great experience means understanding your objectives, defining a balanced feature set, laying-out a good user flow, and putting it all together with a great user interface design. We allocate enough time to get the user experience right before transitioning into the coding phase.
We create native iPhone and Android apps.
If you can describe it, we can build it. We use a three step approach to app development that allows us to be fast and on time.
We listen to you.
Before beginning a project we create a spec, wire-frames and sample screens. This process defines the project so that it starts and ends on time.
Develop, test & document. Our code is always structured, well documented and throughly tested.
Apps connect with backend servers to retrieve/process data. A scalable/reliable backend, means a fast/reliable app.
Apple iOS & Android OS dominate the market, we focus exclusively on these platforms in order to bring high quality, reliable apps to market.
We can design your app from start to finish, from storyboards, wireframes and sample screens or work with your UI/UX designers.
We understand meeting your completion date as well as milestones are a top priority.
To put the cost of app development into perspective, iOS/Android corporate developers earn approximately $100k/yr, that’s more like $120/yr fully loaded (payroll tax, health insurance, misc.). Therefore, internal development would cost a company $10k/month per developer, assuming you wanted to bring the development in-house and already had the expertise to develop and manage the project.
Most of our clients start with iOS, then port to Android.
Occasionally. Contact us with more details. We will help if our workload permits.
Every project is different, but generally it takes roughly 2 months: 3 weeks to spec and wireframe, 2-4 weeks for UI/UX graphic design and 1-2 months of development. Graphic assets and development are generally done in parallel.
In our opinion, a native app is faster and delivers a better user experience than navigating a mobile site.
The main reasons apps are rejected are not following the Apple HIG (Human Interface Guidelines ), use of private APIs, Crashes from users denying permissions.Click here for more reasons...
Path, Shopkick, Twitter and Instagram come to mind. Their UI/UX are simple, clean and intuitive.
