8 Important Mobile App Development Process Steps We Follow for a Successful App Development
# 1 Let's Have a Call
To begin with, we will have a typical phone call, random, brief, just to identify if we can help you if we can continue this project.
As per your information in the " contact us " form, our sales representative study will study your requirements. The team understands your business and requirements in detail and communicates with you through a skype call or telephone call. At Space-O Technologies, we believe that " healthy conversations lead to reliable relationships for future businesses ." In short, the better the description and depth of the client, the better we can understand at first glance.
And one, the first impression is the last impression. Our experienced and knowledgeable team comes prepared for almost every question. Our sales rep team offers a 30-minute free consultation where you can ask questions related to your app idea. Then our team will prepare a proposal for you along with WBS (Work-breakdown Structure). Our goal is to check the feasibility of your app idea and suggest the best technical ahead.
# 2 Agreement makes it official
If you are willing to move forward with us for your custom mobile app development, we will make it official by signing the agreement, NDA. By doing this, we ensure that your app is safe with us. In fact, it avoids misunderstandings or miscommunication between us.
As a professional in the app world, we offer paper app development services specified on paper. Our real work starts after we sign an agreement that consists of understanding project requirements, defining communication methods, scheduling scrum meetings, file sharing and expected delivery phases in fixed milestones.
For your app development, we are doing a kick-off meeting with our company. This meeting defines app developers and other team members to work on your project.
# 3 Wireframing the app
After the project requirements are understood and communication methods (Slack, Skype, Basecamp) are set, the question of how much time it will take to design an app awakens. The design part is the most intricate development of mobile app processes.
Then our business analyst analyzes your app idea to create a wireframe of required features using Balsamiq 3.5.17 and AdobeXD wireframe design tools. We call it as the Software Requirement Specification (SRS) document. The thread frame determines the timeline for an app to create. It also helps in requirement analysis by a project manager who manages your app.
An app has many features, for example you want to have a chat feature in your app. But there are a number of integrations available such as real-time chat, or normal messaging, EPIs or XNPs. The special requirement is selected from a structured wireframe.
# 4 App Design by Drawing
Before we started preparing the first app designs, we sent you a questionnaire to help us know your preferences. It consists of questions that.
- What color would you prefer for your app
- Basic color and font preferences
- What apps do you like
This helps us to know your preferences. To your taste, we create sample screens using tools for designing apps like photoshop and illustrator. The example includes app icon, splash screen (first screen), login or registration form, website. We make two UI / UX choices for you. After submitting the samples, we will wait for your feedback and make any changes to your preferences.
After final design approval, we create a systematic app development flow to begin the app development process to make it a user-centric product using Flinto or Invision.
We prepare a pre-design of your entire app without writing a single line of code.
# 5 Design Implemented for Development
After coming together with app design, mobile app developers come down to bring everything to action. The project manager defines tasks for the developers and a systematic development plan for mobile apps is created to achieve the specified milestones.
We value time and money, and therefore a discussion of any thought, suggestion or decision is made with you. The development of the mobile app development steps is developed for you by a "review of the developed app screens" via project management tools such as Basecamp and Trello.
# 6 Testing makes your app quality
When deciding to create a new app, it is inevitable to continue testing the app. It helps keep costs low and build a quality app. The longer you go into the mobile app development cycle, the more expensive it will be to fix the error.
The application has been tested for ease of use, compatibility, security, interface controls and performance. We have around 50 iOS and Android devices to check, locate and fix issues that occur due to the user interface. The units have different dimensions, screen sizes, OS versions. Thus, this type of testing assures us that there are no functionalities that cause the problem to the application when it is live and used by the users.
First, we perform the unit test, QA testing, using a black box test method that is often performed for functional and regression testing.
After completing the testing and making your application 100% flawless and smooth on our part, we will send it to you and we will call it UTA (User Acceptance Testing) testing.
# 7 Launching the app
Finally, you have reached the final step of developing the mobile app. This is where your app is sent for approval. But it's not just about submitting an app, it's considered the first marketing step for your business.
For different application stores, launch policies vary. Our Space-O team distributes the app to your server and launches it on both the Google Play Store and App Store platforms. We know the right way to submit the processes; such as screenshots, video entry and app title and description for the app.
# 8 Post Launch Services
When your application remains in the hands of users, it will receive feedback and for future versions of the app, must integrate it as an app update. Each app will need new features and technological updates. As soon as the first version of your app is released, the development cycle begins again.
We, at Space-O Technologies, provide you with a "post-launch service program" that is 3-month support. We upgrade your app systems, fix bugs on a timely basis, analyze your growth in app stores and suggest you with some other engaging features as well.
We hope that sharing this information about our app development process will give you a better idea while choosing the best app development company for your project. Every human being tends to make some mistakes, and thus we also have the same origin. But our degree of escalation is very small, about 5-6% of the projects are hardly undergoing escalation.
Our team members are committed to providing YOU with the best experience possible. We have received many testimonials from our clients and it is precisely this that defines us, our power, our clients – the happiness and success of our clients.
