App development can become complex, but it should always start simple. Face to face, on the phone or on Skype; with a short, informal conversation you tell us what you want, and we'll discuss how we can help. Whether you're ready to build an app or still at an earlier stage, we're always happy to talk.
Once we've had a chat (and maybe an email or two) we'll create an uncomplicated, jargon-free proposal for you. Clear descriptions and prices only. We do have two non-negotiables; we won't subcontract any work, and we won't compromise on quality*.
*We know it sounds corny, but it's important to us.
So it begins! Time to test our technical and design thinking skills. Your mobile app will benefit from generous planning and design iteration, with your input integrated throughout. Exploring the scope and potential of your app will give us a framework for future development, with a consistent user experience and visual styling to match.
You're loving the design of your app and want to play with it on your phone - time to write code! Apps are complex enough to design, but under the hood they're even more so. Our experience has proved that small, dedicated teams are the most effective when it comes to building apps quickly and efficiently.
We don't throw people at the problem. We don't parcel out work to other organisations either. We do get it built as efficiently as possible.
Outsource the testing? Not us! And we don't advise anybody else to either, which is why we do all ours in-house. Testing is not as easy as it may seem, and proves unreliable when done ad-hoc by a third-party. It requires attention to detail and a knack for finding every possible issue. A perverse delight in finding ways to break the app helps too.
Our motto? Don't mess with test.
Once you're happy with your product, it's time to organise a release schedule. But app store submissions and distribution environments can be a headache to navigate and manage. We look after the entire process on your behalf, ensuring that everything is in place where and when it needs to be. If you prefer, we can create a setup so that you can efficiently submit updates yourself.
So that's it, your app is in the wild! That's where our work ends isn't it? Not quite…
We don't walk away at the end of the project. It's inevitable that your newly spawned app will have a few minor bugs that will need addressing with an update, or you might think of a brilliant new feature you want to add. As vendors update their operating systems and release new devices, we can test and update your app so your customers don't get any nasty surprises. We can handle day-to-day support for your app's customers too.
Whatever is needed for your app to survive once it's out in the world, we'll continue to maintain your product for as long as you need us to.
