Ever wondered what it takes to bring a mobile app to life? In this video, we’ll explain the process our customers go through when they hire us to build their mobile app and take it to market. The first step is that flash of insight, the idea. Once a client has an idea, we recommend they compile details by answering some of the following questions.
What platform should this be on – iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone? Will it be static or will it have new content added on a regular basis? What features will it use? The camera, GPS, accelerometer, or other hardware? Will it link to Twitter, Facebook, and other social media assets? Does it require 3D animations or connections to back-end databases? One of the most important questions to ask is what is the budget? As you might suspect, the more complex an app is the more it will cost to build. But apps offering more functionality also have the potential to offer higher returns. In 2011, We built apps for as much as a million dollars and as little as five thousand dollars.
It’s important to have realistic budget goals when heading into product development. When a new client reaches out to us, we introduce them to an account manager. The first step after initial contact is to exchange a non-disclosure agreement, which protects the client’s idea. We understand how important intellectual property is. A formal estimate is then put together and presented to the client, who can either accept the costs or make adjustments to the functionality, in order to better fit the budget they had in mind.
Upon reaching an agreement everything gets spelled out in a detailed statement of work. The cost for each portion of development are laid out, so a client can see where resources are being allocated. The actual programming is assigned to expert coders in the client’s choice of Operating Systems. Our Project Managers and Account Managers keep in touch with the clients and give them updates at certain milestones like UI design and initial builds. When the app is complete, the project managers work with the client to submit the app to the appropriate app stores. And once it’s live, if the client would like our help in marketing the app, we would like to step in there too. We can create demo videos for the applications or press releases to announce the launch. That’s one of the things that set us apart.
We’re one-stop for all your digital needs. We can be there with you throughout the entire development and marketing process. Since we’re developers for hire, the client owns all the rights to any app we build. If it’s a paid app supported by ads or there are in-app purchases all that profit goes to the client.
