Mobile apps are a great way to reach out and grow your business, but they also have specific benefits. Mobile apps can utilise phone features, such as notifications, camera and location, broadening the scope of what can be achieved.
Why develop a mobile app?
Use of mobile devices is set to overtake desktop for accessing websites .
Think about how often you use your phone, or you see other people using theirs. It's common to use your mobile to browse websites, search for information and make purchases.
A mobile app enhances the user experience further and achieves a greater engagement with your users.
Often a mobile app offers features that a mobile web site (or web app) isn't capable of because it can have greater access to the mobile device's hardwear (such as GPS, camera and microphone).
What's involved in building an app?
Thorough understanding of what you want and ensure we've got all the information that we need to design a solution to meet that.
Design and User Experience:
We will look at who your app needs to appeal to, and be appropriate for, the intended audience. It needs to be consistent with existing branding where applicable.
Creating the working product based on those things using our experience with various technologies to devise and develop a solution.
We make sure that what we've produced is what we set out to produce, and ensure it all works correctly on varied device types.
We like automated and manual testing, making sure that where possible we have automated tests to cover the design functionality, backed up with the manual testing. You can't beat a human set of eyes looking at it.
Support, analysis and Improvement:
We'll work to ensuring that product continues to perform in the way that it's expected long after the product is launched.
Long term support for mobile apps is key to it's success as new devices and device updates often change the underlying systems which could otherwise harm performance of the application.
And as user uptake of your application grows, we'll work with you to collect and analyse information about usage and help to guide design changes and enhancements.
We like to maintain relationships with clients over the years, supporting systems, offering advice, and remaining a part of the project.
