How do we deliver custom mobile app development services?

  • 1
    Gather requirements.
    Before diving into custom mobile app development, we determine the requirements and collect information about the client's business. The analyst then creates a breakdown, prioritizes product features, and estimates the time and cost needed to complete the software development project.
  • 2
    Create UI/UX design.
    UI/UX designers create the UI for a custom mobile app, embed the company's brand identity into it, and develop a UI-kit that can be used to scale the design.
  • 3
    Plan 2–3 week sprints.
    In the process of custom mobile app development, we usually work in short sprints. After each of them, the client receives a tangible result, which they can check and evaluate the software development progress. It could be an application version or a site update on the server.
  • 4
    Establish scalable architecture and write clear code.
    Then mobile app developers build the features according to their priority. At this stage, frontend and backend teams work together to implement all the basic mobile apps functionality.
  • 5
    Make sure the software runs stably.
    We run automatic tests and use error-tracking tools in custom mobile apps to fix the bugs.
  • 6
    Release the software to the store.
    We follow iOS and Android guidelines and make sure the software runs smoothly to provide a quick release to the store. We've already helped over 80 clients get their apps released, so we know how to avoid all the common mistakes.
  • 7
    Maintain the mobile app after the release.
    We continue to work with the software even after its first version is released. We may update the mobile apps based on user feedback, add new features, or fix bugs.

What does the app development price depend on?

The cost of developing a custom app depends on several key factors. Here's what can influence the price:

  • 1
    Complexity and feature set
    The more complex your app, with advanced features and custom functionalities, the higher the cost due to the additional development time and resources needed.
  • 2
    Platform choice
    Are you looking for a native app for iOS or Android, or a cross-platform application? Native apps for each platform may cost more due to specialized expertise required, while cross-platform apps can be more cost-effective.
  • 3
    Design requirements
    Custom design work, including unique UI/UX elements, animations, and branding, can impact the price. A more intricate design will take more time to create and implement.
  • 4
    Integration points
    If your app needs to connect with third-party services, APIs, or existing systems, this can add to the complexity and price of the project.
  • 5
    Maintenance plan
    Post-launch services like updates, bug fixes, and support can also factor into the overall cost. We recommend considering a maintenance plan to keep your app up-to-date and running smoothly.
  • 6
    Project timeline
    An accelerated timeline may require a larger team or extended hours, resulting in a higher price for quicker delivery.

We always aim for transparency in our pricing and will work with you to define the scope and provide a detailed quote for your custom mobile application development needs.

FAQ

Who manages the mobile development process?
The custom mobile app development process is usually managed by our project manager, who acts as the contact person between the customer and the team. The manager will answer all questions about the project as well as create presentations and weekly reports that will keep you informed about the results of the sprints and the scope of the upcoming sprints.
Who is on the development team?
The number of members on the project team depends on the complexity of your project. But usually, four people are enough for custom mobile app development. The team usually consists of a mobile developer, a backend developer, a designer, and a project manager who also performs as an analyst.
Do you ensure that my personal data won’t be disclosed?
To ensure that your unique idea is not stolen and personal data is not disclosed, we sign an NDA. We can provide you with our template or we can sign the one that you provide us with.
What are native and cross-platform apps?
Native mobile apps are usually created specifically for iOS or Android operating systems. Each of these platforms needs the code to be written in a specific coding language: Swift or Objective-C for iOS and Java or Kotlin for Android. That’s why you will need to hire two separate development teams to create and maintain such apps.
What are native and cross-platform apps?

Native mobile apps are usually created specifically for iOS or Android operating systems. Each of these platforms needs the code to be written in a specific coding language: Swift or Objective-C for iOS and Java or Kotlin for Android. That’s why you will need to hire two separate development teams to create and maintain such apps.

Cross-platform mobile apps are usually built with the help of React Native framework and JavaScript coding language. Within this approach, both iOS and Android apps are created from one code base. These types of apps are easier to maintain but may perform slower than their native counterparts.

As a part of our custom mobile app development services, we can engineer both types of mobile apps depending on your business goals and target audience.

Native app or React Native app: which one better matches my business?

Native apps better integrate with the device’s operating system, which results in better performance. These mobile apps can also take full advantage of the device’s hardware: microphone, gyroscopic sensor, or Bluetooth. To add, with the help of native development, you can implement advanced features connected to augmented reality or biometrics. Native apps are more expensive to develop than cross-platform ones.

React Native apps can perform as well as native ones. But in case you are planning to build a complex high-load platform, React Native may not be a good choice. React Native makes the development quick and cost-effective as you need only one team to develop and maintain the app. This type of software is especially good for startuppers who want to test their business idea.

In the process of delivering custom mobile app development, our team can analyze your idea and target audience and find out which of these models is a better match.

Do you develop only mobile software, or do you have experience in working with other types of software as well?
Custom mobile app development is not the only service we provide. We specialize in building web and mobile applications for startups and businesses, which means we can create web, mobile, and desktop products. Moreover, we can develop a design for your UI/UX interface, as well as corporate identity elements and illustrations that will make your product recognizable and outstanding.
Can you integrate my existing software or databases into my new mobile app?
Certainly! Our mobile app development service excels at integrating your new custom mobile application with existing systems and databases. We ensure seamless connectivity and data synchronization, providing a unified experience for users and simplifying backend management for your team.
How do you stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in mobile application development?
Technology evolves rapidly, and so do we. Our developers regularly engage in continuing education, workshops, and tech conferences. We also invest in cutting-edge development tools and methodologies to ensure your custom applications leverage the latest innovations in the industry.
What industries do you cater to with your mobile app development services?
Our app development service has extensive experience across a wide range of industries, including healthcare, education, finance, e-commerce, and entertainment. We leverage this diverse expertise to create custom mobile applications that not only fulfill industry-specific needs but also drive innovation.
How do you handle app updates and maintenance post-launch?
Our development service doesn't end with the launch of your custom app. We offer maintenance and update services to keep your application running smoothly. Whether it's scaling up features, refining user experience, or ensuring compatibility with the latest operating system updates, we've got you covered.
What is your approach to custom application development project timelines and budgets?
As a mobile app development company, we believe in transparency and clear communication regarding timelines and budgets. Our project manager will work with you to establish realistic milestones and a budget that reflects the complexity of your custom app. Regular updates ensure that you're well-informed about the project status and any adjustments needed throughout the software development process.
How do you ensure application quality?
Quality is our top priority in application development. Our mobile app developers run automatic tests to catch and fix any issues early on. Our dedicated team makes sure that your custom mobile app meets the highest standards of excellence before it goes live.
Can I be involved in the software development process?
Absolutely! We encourage your involvement at every stage of custom app development. Your feedback is crucial for ensuring the application meets your expectations. Our team is flexible, adapting to your level of engagement desired, whether it's regular check-ins or active participation in decision-making.
