As there are so many competitors available in the market to overcome your business, you need to do something special each day. It is predicted that in the year 2020, mobile apps are going to generate billions of revenue via google play stores, and through in-app advertising. This is one of the reasons why many business organizations are launching the user-friendly app for android and IOS users. As every online buyer uses the mobile app for the fast and easy purchase, these apps will bring greate success for a company in a quick time. Appslure knows the importance of launching a pocket-friendly mobile application for the business units, and that is why we are assigning a separate team to handle each business Mobile App Development Process smoothly. Here in this blog, we are going to see the Mobile App Development Process followed in Appslure for a Successful Mobile App Development.
The very first step of our Mobile App Development Process starts with strategy. As you know there are so many competitive products and services available in the market, you need to launch the mobile app with unique features. We arrange our development team to talk with you to know more about your business products and services. Our app developers collect the data from you and find which strategy suits the best for mobile application development.
In this phase, we will do the following:
Do multiple types of research with your data, and finds the right targeted audience. Based on the targeted audience, we plan the strategy.
Our development team works along with the research team and finds your business competitors available in the market.
With the help of our development unit, we establish the mobile application objectives during the Mobile App Development Process.
Finally, we will select the right mobile platform to build your business app.
Analysis and Planning
In the second step of the Mobile App Development Process, we plan the functional requirements with the clients. Our team of developers analyzes and find what type of app features fits the best for your mobile apps. We also take your ideas for app making and turns into an actual mobile application project. After identifying the actual requirements, we prepare the road map for the Mobile App Development Process. In this planning stage, we identify which developer in our panel will do the planned development works well, and assign him/her for the development. For example, android and IOS are two different platforms. So we assign the android app developer to make the android apps, and ios app developer to develop the IOS applications. The client can share the name of the app during the planning time. If they cannot find one catchy name for the mobile application, we help the clients to get the apt name for their business apps.
UI / UX Design
In the third step of the Mobile App Development Process, our team invites the UI/UX designers into the project. In this phase, the UI/UX designers prepare the plan to deliver the apps with seamless user experience. We assign only the experienced designers to handle the operation as well know mobile app users will like to use the apps again and again only if they found the application is easy to use.
Architecture & Workflows
The first step of our application UI/UX design process is to collect the data from the business clients to know what type of data they are going to display to the users in the mobile app. We also gather information about the journey of the user inside the application to prepare the workflows during the Mobile App Development Process. If business owners need the enterprise model business applications, then they need to set the roles for the users. In such cases, we need to incorporate these rules during the Mobile App Development Process. We decide on the design for the architecture after consulting with the clients. Wireframes
In our Mobile App Development Process, we use the wireframe technology to sketch the app designs in the digital form. We prepare the conceptual layouts with the help of wireframe technology and gives the visual structure for the business application. We arrange a meeting with the client, and show the prepared design. If the client agrees to the design, we will start the real work. Or else, we will again design the app layouts using the wireframe and waits for the approval of the client. Mockups
Mockup means doing the final renderings on the visually designed mobile application. Here, we combine the wireframe technology with the style guide design technology standards. We use popular tools like Adobe Photoshop to make high-fidelity mockups. Prototype
In our Mobile App Development Process, our team does mockups to display the application functionality in the form of static design. But our prototypes are time-consuming process as it involves using powerful tools like Invision for the product making. With the help of prototypes, we help our clients to do early-stage testing.
Before planning the App Development Process, we never fail to define the architecture with the technical aspects. Also, we arrange an app developer to pick the right technology stack. Also, we set the milestones for the mobile application development for every project.
Works on Server Side
When it comes to App Development Process, working on the server-side is important. We are having the experienced developers to handle the database and other servers during the development phase. We ensure our mobile application works well in the integrated server and database. In case if any of our customers use the existing back-end platform, we do the modifications with the help of our android and IOS developers to assist them to get the desired mobile functionality. API
We use the API for the integration needs. To make the application and database communicate with each other, the Application Programming Interface is important, and we use that during our App Development Process. Application Front-End
As application users access the front-end to view the data, we use the API and database to manage the data. If business clients ask us to add support for the users to view/edit records without internet support, we utilize the local storage.
As our main aim is to give a stable application for the business owners, we arrange a separate team for the application testing during the App Development Process. Our Quality Assurance team ensures each and every application delivered to the customers is stable and secure for long-term use. Our quality assurance experts prepare the test cases first and then prepare the bug-reports accordingly.
Our mobile application development team starts the testing works from the beta works. After completing the product works, we again do the next-level testing with our team to find the major and minor flaws. As these development works are not automated, we know human errors can cause the app to function with problems. But we never make our customers testers, so before delivering the app to the customers, different types of mobile app testing will be conducted in our panel for the error-free application delivery.
User Experience Testing
If the developed business application looks interactive and user-friendly, each and every potential lead starts to purchase and hire the services through the mobile application. With this mind, we follow the unique strategy in our App Development Process. Our team will do plenty of researches with the help of the back-end team, and find who your actual customers are, what their needs are, and what type of workflows and architecture they love to view in the mobile app. After collecting this information, our app design team ensures the development app matches the requirement of the targeted audience. Our user experience testing approach will create a big impact on user adoption! Functional Testing
In our App Development Process our testing team does functional testing on all possible aspects of the developed business application. This functional testing will be done by different app testers for ios and android apps. We check the accuracy of the functionality because we know only the app with zero bugs brings success to the business. We ask our local developers and testers to install the application on our local device and ensure the functionality works fine on all devices. In case of any issues notes, our testers will re-assign the work and get it sorted out before the delivery. Performance Testing
When our testing team tests the development android and IOS mobile application, they check the app based on the following criteria.
How well the developed android and ios mobile application responds to the user request?
How fast the pages in the mobile application are loading?
Is development mobile app is draining down the battery of the android and ios devices?
Are mobile apps causing memory leaks?
Is the app size is bigger than the normal size?
Our App Development Process involves bulk data testing, so we upload the high number of data to check the real-time performance of the developed mobile app. In case of any issue noted, our developers will be notified to fix the problem by the testing panel. Device&Platform Testing
Apple has a controlled environment because they control the operating system as well as hardware. But when you take the android, it is open source, and so many mobile device manufacturers are available in the market. With this mind, we do the device and platform testing operation with plenty of mobile devices. We used the test the developed apps on devices like Samsung, Motorola, Honor, Redmi, Realme, LG, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, and more. The Mobile App Development Process is extremely different from web app testing. Unlike the web application, mobile apps have to test on different platforms to ensure smooth working for every user. Even if customers request us to find the bugs available in the existing mobile app developed by the third party development company, we accept the task and share the complete report about the issues on-time. If our business clients request us to fix those bugs noted on the different platforms, we prioritize the task to the app development panel and gets it done before the mentioned deadline.
Before deploying the application on the Android and IOS store, we used to have a quick call or chat with the client to know about the availability of their development account in the android and IOS store. If business client do not have the developer account, we request them to create the account for both ios and android stores to upload the application for business purposes. After creating the developer account in the Google Play Store, and the Apple Application store, our development team will launch the mobile app.
During the Mobile App Development Process, we help the business clients to prepare the following application meta-information which is mandatory for the app releases in the android and ios app store.
Mobile Application title for IOS and Android App. Meta-Description for the application.
Keywords based on business products and services.
App icon based on the business model
Screenshots of the app pages.
Normally, when a developer uploads the product in the ios app store, it will go for the review process to check the quality of the application in all possible ways. We are a specialized team for the IOS mobile application development, so our development process and app delivery will never fail. So far we have developed more than 1000 apps for the iOS platform, and none of them got rejected by the app store. Although there are no review procedures in the Google play store, we follow the Android app store guidelines during the App Development Process.
After the app becomes available for the users to download from the Android and IOS store, we closely monitor the reviews shared by the users. Also, we use mobile analytics platforms to track application success for your industry. When a business owner launches new products and services on their business website page, we arrange meeting through Skype or plan to schedule the call with them to get the requirements to add the new features on the existing app. We also offer the support services based on the feedback of the users to ensure each and every business clients get the updated app for brand new mobiles.
App Development Process will never stop because as long as platforms like IOS and Android keep updating their systems, business owners need to make modifications continuously on the existing business based mobile application. That is why we follow the unique application development process with the expert team for quality product delivery. We follow the above-mentioned procedure in our development panel for app development. Hire us today to ensure hassle-free app launch on the IOS and Android platform for every update.
