Mobile Application Development

You have a great mobile application idea; we have the team to develop and launch it. Application Development is big and so are the challenges that come with it. Our priority is to make sure that your app looks beautiful and works smoothly across all devices, regardless of screen size, OS version, and processors. Our team consists of experienced mobile app developers, UI and UX designers and content producers dedicated to creating technological solutions that improve lives and businesses through different methodologies that suit client requirements.

Our Development Process

 

1. Ideating /Research

It all starts with an idea, nonetheless if yours is just to have a mobile application presence. Intellinov Digital helps you convert that idea into a solid basis for an application. We  include actual demographics, motivations, behavior patterns and goals of your buyer persona in the research phase. 

This is an essential Phase  because, during this phase, we lay down the necessary groundwork for what follows next. We also engage in a detailed study of our client’s competitor’s app to determine what features are absent in their app so that they can be included in the application we want to develop .

 

2. Wireframing

Now comes wireframing , drawing detailed sketches of the envisioned product helps us uncover usability issues. We understand that Sketching does a lot more than merely tracing our steps, It’s also a powerful communication and collaboration tool. After sketching, wireframing will get us refining the ideas and arranging all components of the design in the right way. Here we develop a clear understanding of how our proposed features and ideas will fuse together into a functional mobile application. We also create a user journey, to demonstrate the relationship between each screen and how the users will navigate through the application. It’s during this process when we figure out how to incorporate your brand, while focusing on user experience and keeping in mind the differences in the way people use a mobile app versus a mobile website.

 

3. Technical Feasibility Assessment

Despite having a clear understanding of the visuals by now, we then start considering if the back-end systems will be able to support the app’s functionality. To know whether the idea of our application is feasible technically there’s need to get access to public data by sourcing public APIs. An app, depending on its format (smartphone, tablet, wearables, etc.) as well as the platform (iOS, Android, etc.), will have different requirements. By the end of this exercise, that’s when different ideas for the app pop up among the team and also decide which of the initial functionality isn’t feasible. we then brainstorm a little, ask questions and review the status.

 

4. Prototype

To be able to truly comprehend the touch experience of an application we need to touch the App and see how it works and flows. So, building a prototype  gets the app’s concept into a user’s hands to see how it works for the most common use case. We Use rough and not exhaustive wireframes for this phase. This will help us see if we are taking things in the right direction. We also Include the stakeholders in this process, allowing them to touch the prototype will give us their feedback and implement it into our work. And moreover, the prototype will give different stakeholders the first look at our app and will help us validate the information we’ve gathered.

 

5. Design

This is the final lap before diving into coding. Our UX Designers architects the interaction between design elements, while the our UI designers builds the look and feel of the app. This is a multistep process with its many review stages. We come up blueprints and visual direction, informing our engineers of the envisioned final product and about how interaction should move, feel and flow. we also create multiple variations of a screen by playing around with the layout of navigation, buttons and other visual elements. The more our product varies, the higher the chances of our UX being original. This always proves to be a multi-step process, and we strive to have results with clear visual directions providing an abstraction of the final product.

 

6. Develop

In development , the app goes through a set of stages. In the initial stage, the core functionality although present is not tested. See the app is very buggy, and non-core functionality doesn’t exist at this point. In the second stage, much of the functionality proposed is incorporated. The app has ideally gone through light testing and bug fixing, though some issues could still be present. In this phase, the app is released to a certain group of external users for more testing. After the bugs in the second stage are fixed, the app will move to the deployment phase where it’s ready for release.

 

7. Testing

We make sure our team covers all the necessary facets of application testing i.e usability, compatibility, security, interface checks, stress, and performance. We also conduct user acceptance testing to discover whether our mobile app works for our intended users or not. To test this we give the  app to a few people in your target audience and ask pertinent questions. Once the application passes the user acceptance test, we further make the application available for a beta trial, either through the enrollment of previously identified groups or an open solicitation for participants. The feedback we receive from beta users will help us find out whether the app’s functions are operating well in a real-world situation.

 

8. Deployment

Our app is ready to submit 🙂  We bear  in mind, this is not the end. App development doesn’t end at launch. As our application gets in the hands of users, feedback will pour in, and there will be need to incorporate that feedback into future versions of the app. Every app will need updates and new features that is why we always like to remind our clients that apart from the money invested in building a digital product, they should always remember that its a long-term commitment.
