You may have an idea about an app and you’re just starting to examine what developing a mobile app would require. Or, you might be on the verge of spending in a native mobile app and are currently on the lookout for the best mobile App Development Companies.
It’s been three years since iTspell Technologies went into the business of developing native mobile apps. And we thought it’s about time we let the world know just how we do it.
Here is how the standard Android App Development method works in your case.
1. Non-Disclosure Agreement
Trust is an essential factor for us. We think that open communication is the key to effective work. This way, both we and the client can rest assured that the info and ideas we replace are protected. And we can reach the project details.
Which begins us to our next question.
2. Product Specs & Design
The specifications of the app, as well as its design, should be the result of research about the market the client’s going into and the target audience they’re seeming to interact with. The features of the product must come as a solution or complement to an existing situation.
If the app specs are missing or lacking specific areas, we normally work together with the client to explain all the features of the product.
Within these workshops, we’ve got the client team, if it’s a startup, or product manager & other product people in case of more well-established businesses and a few senior mobile professionals on our side: a Product Strategist, a Tech Lead and, when needed, a UX designer. In this team setup we work collectively to determine the business model from one end to the other and the user sections, then move on to the features, flows, technology assumptions and final screens of the app.
The deliverables one can require from our product discovery workshop are a full list of product specs and patterns for all the major flows, aggregated in an Interactive Model.
Having an Interactive Prototype of the mobile app is the closest you can get to know if it’s what you needed, without actually spending on developing the whole thing. We suggest that, as far as possible, changes to the product should be made in the app prototyping phase. A prototype is a lot more affordable, easier and faster to work with, as the actual mobile app would be.
3. Project Development Estimate
Once we’ve got a definite definition of the product – fully documented product specs and a prototype we can play with, it’s the turn of the assigned development team to take a close look at the project.
In our practice, working with user stories has proved itself most efficient.
As we concentrate on having analyzed user stories, to mix up, the product’s specs, things are pretty mild in the evaluation phase. Every mobile developer can determine the time it would take them to develop a distinct functionality, making for a clear development plan.
The final assessment is the result of including all the hours required and multiplying that by our rate card. We use seniority-based pricing in our rate card.
4. Signing the contract
Holding a definitive budget both we and the client agree upon, we can go for signing the contract. Besides being an official contract, this agreement is very helpful documentation of the project we’re embarking on, particularly for the client.
The contract includes a development plan and a schedule. Possessing these at hand, the client knows what to expect from us at all times.
In our case, Ios App Development appears under the stringent rules of application development. We work in 2-week races and have a demo for the client at the end of every race.
The advantages of our Mobile App Development have been declared loud and clear in the past years. As per our experience, iTspell Technologies always practice in developing mobile apps has made agreements for both us and our partners. It allows us to better understand the client’s requirements, this work in a use that has a positive impact on their business. We can develop each app feature with the accurate customer portrait in mind, because every step of the way, the client shares their knowledge and penetration with us.
6. Testing & QA
The process of Mobile Application Development applies to our testing phase as well. By managing the project into manageable units, we twist the testing phase with the development phase for the best results. Conducting the required tests and reviews for every development unit, we never fall behind with any bug fixes and can prognosticate future changes that might be necessary early on.
7. App release
Finally, we help the client by submitting the app into the selected app store(s). If necessary, our in-house marketing team can write the required copy and prepare the appropriate visuals for the product’s app store page.
We tried to better personally and come up with solutions for the requirements of the people we work with. All of the experiences we had and all the feedback we got has played a part in deciding on the work method presented earlier.
