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.
Backed by years of experience, we build high-quality hybrid apps that work seamlessly across platforms to ensure your product is in the best position for a faster launch, and save you money in the long run!
This means that the app is run via the smartphone’s embedded browser, however, it is downloaded and installed onto the device from either the App Store for iOS or the Google Play-store for Android, similar to native apps. Hybrid applications also are built with single codebases that are compatible with a broader range of operating systems, making them more cost-effective and faster to develop than an exclusive native app. As a result, hybrid apps are becoming more popular to invest in and develop.
At App Boxer, our experienced team provides end-to-end hybrid mobile app development solutions tailored for your individual tech requirements. During the Discovery Phase, our team will discuss the benefits and risks of using hybrid app development for your project and outline a strategy to design, build and launch your product into the market. We take the time to thoroughly map out a 1 – 2 year development plan, including time for rigorous testing, that ensures your app is in the best possible position for launch.
Our team at App Boxer has spent many years refining our native app development process to ensure that we deliver high-functioning apps that operate seamlessly across multiple platforms. We take the necessary steps in order to create products that are designed beautifully and developed using the appropriate technology.
We have outlined the process below!!
All great apps start with a single great idea. Once you have a concept in mind, the next step is to ask yourself, “What problem does my app solve?”. It is important to understand what your app does differently and how it can stand out from the competition. This is the first step towards launching a successful product. It can take some time to consolidate your ideas on your own, so our team is always ready to jump in and give you a hand to get this process started.
It is important to identify the competition, understand your target audience, and research the current market. By identifying how your project sits within this landscape, we are able to start creating a plan for hybrid app development. We provide you with a strategy for developing the product and can offer a marketing playbook that will help outline your product’s promotion.
Our UX/UI designers create black and white wireframes that visually map out the features and functionality of your app. This process ensures that we have captured the best UX for your product’s requirements. At this stage in the process, we begin identifying the specifications for development.
Our team of brand specialists works with you to create a brand that meets the needs of your business while ensuring it will translate well to a digital platform. We set up a collaborative mood board to gauge the requirements and visual direction for your brand. The team offers a variety of strong concepts that align with your brand and work to ensure the logo meets your expectations. Finally, you will be provided with the brand guidelines to ensure your brand is in the best position moving forward for development and promotion.
Our UX/UI specialists begin applying your branding elements, such as colour and typography, to the wireframes. As part of the creative process, our designers work to produce an intuitive interface that results in a seamless and enjoyable user experience. Finally, the team delivers a high-fidelity prototype that can be used to promote your app to investors if required.
Next, we begin outlining each feature and interaction that the user has with the app in a document called the user stories. This highly detailed document is essentially a guide to the functionality and technical requirements for your app and will be used for back-end development. This document provides the cost estimation and dictates plans for future development.
At App Boxer, we ensure that your product is produced and functioning at the highest standard before launch. We provide a number of quality assurance testing services during the development process to see that the app functions correctly. Our testing processes include:
After we have completed our necessary testing procedures, we will confirm the final submission to the App Store and Google Play Store. Each of these providers has its own testing requirements that apps must pass before they are published. Once they have ensured that your product complies with their standards, they will confirm the final launch. This process may take up to a week.
Post-launch, our team will monitor the app performance to ensure any functional and security bugs that may appear are resolved promptly. This service is provided as part of App Boxer’s 3-month warranty for all our products.
This depends on your business priorities and the features of your future app. A native and hybrid app each has their own advantages and disadvantages so it’s important to familiarise yourself with both and weigh up what will work best for you.
