App Crafters for Entrepreneurs and Brands

How we work

The development process and progress should always be clear and transparent for clients. How can this be achieved if a client is not familiar with the intricacies of programming? For this reason, we divide the whole project into parts of the same length, which we call iterations. At the end of each iteration we draw our conclusions and deploy a test build. We constantly assess our development pace by summing up the number of completed tasks within each iteration and then compose a list of tasks for the next iteration.
 

Typically, we get a working app prototype within the first few weeks of development. We show clients each improved prototype as each iteration is successfully completed.

We provide consultancy, world-class design and full-cycle development.

We develop apps for all platforms and devices, native or cross-platform.

We have a team of world class software engineers who write clean, robust code.

Our Process

We take an idea and try to see the vision through your eyes. We prototype, we design, we develop, and we release. Simple.

 

Prototyping

Without creating a prototype, it’s difficult to visualise and understand your app. To enable visualisation we employ wireframes, they give us a clear understanding of how the app is going to look and work.

 

Development

We approach programming in sprints or iterations. Each sprint sets the pace for the subsequent iteration while helping us to more carefully plan further work. This simple process organization is a key to successful results.

 

UI Design

During this phase we refine the appearance of the storyboard elements until we eventually have a design that you are happy with. When we have added any final touches, we are ready for development.

 

Release

The final part is the uploading to the respective app stores and going live. For iOS, the Apple Review Team receives a brand new app, checks it and approves it. Rejected apps can be uploaded again once any issues have been fixed. For Android, its a lot simpler and quicker.
