We work with the client to chart our way through the new app. What every button and selection will do is completely mapped out.
This makes sure the app will do exactly what the client wants it to do before a single line of code is written.
Each design is then storyboarded so we can discuss the layout and general feel of the app with the client.
Here it is decided whether to go with portrait, landscape or allow for both depending on the requirements of the app itself.
Next, the app is laid out within XCode or Android Studio so we can see what it will look like the respective devices.
This stage is for preview purposes only and there is very little functionality. But it gives everyone an excellent idea as to what the final article will look like.
Here is where the code is written. We make sure our App programs are up to date so we’re always working with the latest features. Regular builds are made and uploaded to a secure location so our clients can install the latest build and see how the app is coming along.
Once built the app is sent to either the Apple App Store or Google Play for approval.
Icons are created, descriptions are written and screenshots are taken.
Once all that is done then the app is up, live and ready for anyone to download it!
