kung fu What We Do. Our List Of Services.

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.

"I was able to see exactly what we were getting for our investment, Groove Development provided a detailed plan. They gave us screen shots of the app and a logical development plan.And the creative app feature ideas they came up with were amazing. Your approach to the design and development process was easy to work with."
-- Ken Brown, Tixie

Pricing A frank discussion of app development cost.
Getting a quote on an iOS app can be tricky. There is a huge price disparity between what an individual offshore developer and a large US based firm can quote you. Sometimes, the difference can be so big that it leaves you asking how any of the two can charge what they charge.

The minimum investment for a high quality iPhone/iPad or Android app is around $15k and it increases from there depending on the feature set.
To the right are some price guidelines for most apps.

High quality, reliable, scalabe apps are not cheap. Our FAQ may help to answer more questions you have.

Pricing guidelines:

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.

Groove Development was a good fit for us because we needed an agency that could do more than just develop an app, given that we were coming to them with little more than just a concept. We relied on their expertise to refine our overall mobile strategy while they patiently worked with us to design the app and user experience. They were a true partner in the process.

FAQ Frequently Asked Questions.
Which device should we support first iOS or Android?

Most of our clients start with iOS, then port to Android.

Do you take over partially completed apps or offer maintenance for existing apps?

Occasionally. Contact us with more details. We will help if our workload permits.

How long does app development typically take?

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.

Which is better a mobile website or native app?

In our opinion, a native app is faster and delivers a better user experience than navigating a mobile site.

We have a tight deadline, why are some apps rejected by the App Store?

The main reasons apps are rejected are not following the Apple HIG (Human Interface Guidelines ), use of private APIs, Crashes from users denying permissions.

You mentioned good UI/UX, can you give me some well known example apps?

Path, Shopkick, Twitter and Instagram come to mind. Their UI/UX are simple, clean and intuitive.
