Each day so many apps are launched on App store. All of these apps, if professionally built, will follow a similar mobile app development process. At Getmyappz, we have built many apps and we outlined the strategy, design, and development processes we follow for your success.
Our methodologies are always evolving and we use different methodologies for each app. But when developing a mobile app we follow standard process which includes idea, strategy, design, development, deployment, and post launch phases.
Everything strikes with an Idea !
All great apps are built began as ideas. If you don’t have an idea; no worries, we are there to help you in ideation & growth strategies. We immerse ourselves in the problem phase in order to analyse and suggest the best solutions. After grasping the problem our next step is to generate ideas to solve those roadblocks. We are frequently asked by our clients that it's possible “ the answer is always Yes” Now it's time to challenge the Idea’s validity and viability.
Once the idea is finalized we spend more time in planning for your Apps’s Success. We are going to analyze if any apps serve similar purpose and we look for the following :
(1) No.of installs - we look into the no. of installs happened/ how many of them are using these apps
(2) No. of ratings - see if people likes these kind of apps
(3) Company History - How many times they have changed and what kind of challenges they have faced. And we also analyze on what they did to grow their business.
With these inputs we will be able to solve two goals. First one is we get a free lesson on which mistakes should’nt be repeated & second is on how hard it will be to compete in the marketplace and what innovation makes us to rise ahead the competitors. We understand the gaps and offer tailormade solutions.
The goal of the roadmap is to understand what problems your app will be solving and what its going to be in the nearing future.This day one version is often called your Minimum Viable Product (MVP). During this process,we write on a whiteboard all of the things that your app to do. Then we begin ranking these items by priority. These priorities are set by collaboratively analyzing app's core functionality ,what is needed to gain users, and what can be added later.
By attending our brainstorm sessions with our mobi dudes you become expert in technology and suggest us some features you think users might want, they are likely great potent for later versions. As we gain users with your MVP, we gain solicit feedback on what additional features are desired.
All great apps are built began as ideas. If you don’t have an idea; no worries, we are there to help you in ideation & growth strategies.
Typically, UI & UX process begins by writing down a list of features we want the app to perform and a list of what needs to be displayed somewhere in the app. These are the basic building blocks with which we will build the wireframes. In wireframing phase we begin creating screens and assigning each functions and data. Tools we use: Whiteboards and Pencil & paper
After investing lot of effort into the form and function of your app, we are keen about your vision We are the skilled team offering both design and development services and we handle these complex processes easily.
We break up all development work into smaller milestones and build your app in a series of phases. Each of the Mobile App Development cycle includes planning, development, testing, and review
After these extended reviews stages, we will have a final development sprint to address any newly discovered issues. We continue beta testing during this process and ensure that your crash and issue reports are declining. Once we have the all-clear signal from our testers, we start preparing for deployment.
We perform most of the testings by non-developers or at least people who are not your app’s primary developer. This will help in ensuring a genuine testing environment. We follow lot of testing processes named below:
Performance Testing - - Your app might work perfectly, but if it may take 20 seconds to display a simple lists, where the drop offs may increase.
User Acceptance Testing - - we perform this testing by either the app owner or future app users. We take a feedback from app users in every step now and then to offer the best of our services to the users.
Functionality Testing - We perform Functionality Testing to ensure the feature works as described in the requirements. Usually, our Quality Analyst team will have a test plan with a list of actions and the desired app behavior.
Usability Testing - We test to ensure the features are user-friendly & offers rich user experiences and is as ease as possible. Often we bring in new testers for a “first-use” experience during this testing.
Regression Testing - Our QA team will have a list of tests to perform at the end of each sprint, which include tests from previous sprints as well.
Device-Specific Testing -There are lot of tools that can help us to automate this testing process, such as Google’s Firebase, but we always test the app on at least a handful of physical devices
We constantly monitor performance and tweak to offer hassle free operations. No process is complete without measuring & improvements. We constantly monitor & Improvise the strategies
