Many apps start with iOS development for iPhone and iPad, however, we are experienced in Android development as well.
Mobile apps require an incredible attention to detail. From the initial planning stages to the development of subtle animations, every aspect must be considered and executed properly. At Websauce, we have a meticulous design and development process that makes us uniquely adept at designing and building mobile apps.
WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
After we perform a through discovery into the business’s goals, the end users, and the brand strategy, we start formulating what needs to be done.
If the application is more complex (anything more than a Notes app), we begin with low fidelity wireframing. This is a quick iterative phase that allows us to focus on the functionality without spending time on high fidelity designs yet.
Afterwards, we create a prototype using the wireframes in order to test the user experience. If we determine a better solution, it’s much quicker to pivot and adjust during this phase versus later down in the design or development process. You can think of this phase like creating the blueprint or 3D model of a home before actually building it. Changes are much more feasible. Once all stakeholders and target users test the prototype, and our design team feels confident with the planned experience, we then move into the high fidelity phase of the design. This is where we create all the fine details such as typography choices, color palettes, proper spacing, hover states, and more. Here we can see exactly how the final product will appear after development. This is where branding comes into play. Not only does the UI need to provide an intuitive user experience, the visuals should to capture the brand attributes that were discovered during the discovery page.
This is where the app comes to life. It should feel like an extension of the brand and the value it provides. During the apps development phase, thorough testing is an integral part of our approach. We document and test all possible user and admin scenarios. Each of these different test areas enable us to ensure that the systems we develop are bug-free, meet your expectations and fulfill end users’ functional and aesthetic needs.
