It is the process of understanding your whole vision and gathering requirements for your app before heading into app development.
Think of it like hiring a building architect to design a house before you hire the builder.
End-to-end Development: We design, develop, test, and maintain a variety of Android applications; from the initial consultation to launching your app and beyond.
Code Writing & Audit: Our team offers full code-writing services to every client. Based on years of experience, our development team will provide you with your own codebase that can be altered to suit the requirements of your app. Where necessary our team is able to write new code to meet the specific needs of each project and improve the overall performance and user experience. We prioritise the speed, stability and seamless functionality of every app we work on.
Rescue Missions: Our team have worked on many rescue projects for Android apps whereby we assess the old code from another developer, and take the necessary steps to deliver a new and fully functional codebase that meets the needs of your project. We can fix issues with bugs, architectural problems, and scalability issues. Our team work with you to create a revival plan that is guaranteed to provide you with the best results.
Our team at App Boxer has spent years refining our Android app development process to produce the highest quality products on the market. The process includes stages of concept refinement, design implementation, backend development, initial launch, and post-deployment.
We’ve broken down the steps for you:
Refine the concept or idea
Every great app starts with a great concept. Once you have your idea in mind, the next step is to ask yourself, “what problem does my app solve?” This will help to define your unique proposition and make you stand out from the competition. If you’re struggling to refine your idea, our experienced team is always ready to chat and take your idea to the next level.
Android App Strategy
With the range of apps already in the market, it can be daunting to visualise your goals, therefore you need to create a blueprint to give your app idea some structure. Our team can offer ongoing support and a marketing playbook to your app the best chance once it hits the market.
Android App Wireframing
The wireframing process for Android apps involves creating a black and white prototype of the app, focusing on mapping out the integral features and functions. Specific focus is placed on identifying the tools needed for integration and outlining the specifications needed for end-to-end development.
Our in-house brand specialists work with you to collaboratively build the right brand to fit the needs of your business while taking the right steps to ensure it translates seamlessly into the digital world. We create an initial mood board to understand the requirements and visual direction of the brand and deliver multiple concept variations and refinement to ensure the brand aligns with your values and expectations. Our team provides you with a final brand guidelines document and assets to ensure your brand is in the best position moving forward.
Android App Design – UI and UX Strategy
The next focus is on developing the front-end of your Android app development. This is where our design team will apply the visual branding elements to the wireframes and create a high-fidelity prototype of your app. The UI and UX design team will ensure that your users are given an intuitive and high-quality experience.
User Stories for Android App Development
User stories are a complete step-by-step guide of the functionality and technical requirements for your app’s back-end development. This document also entails the cost estimation for your final product and outlines a plan for future developments.
Android App Development
We focus on ensuring the user interface is at an optimal standard and deploy techniques to code the functionality and usability of the app. During this stage of the app development process, we can rely on Android native features to improve the quality of the end product, this includes navigation, list views, and collating data silos to perform as a single unit. We combine the Native front-end development on Android with the backend to give you a seamless app experience, and collects the data it needs to be able to make sure your app runs smoothly
We perform regular quality assurance testing at every stage, checking to see that the app functions correctly and there are no bugs detected in the software. Other types of testing include:
Deployment and Market Submission
Once we are in agreement that the app is functioning at the highest quality we will give the green light for the final app submission to the Google Play Store. This can generally take 24 – 48hrs to assess whether your app follows the security guidelines provided by Google.
Using analytical tools, we monitor the app to fix any functional and security bugs that may appear. The team will maintain any updates to the app’s features or customer feedback as part of a 12-month warranty that guarantees quality assurance.
