At Codewing, we develop both android and iOS Apps using both native and cross platform. We believe that a strong and clear plan makes the entire app development process much easier and less complex. It is important for our clients to understand our App development process to actively participate in the process by providing their feedback. The following app development process applies to the Android, iOS and cross-platfrom Apps.
A Good Chat and discovery
It is very important for us to know and understand the app idea, the purpose, the end user and the market well before we. We believe, we can give the best results if only if we could fully understand your idea. A good chat will help us understand your idea and concept to ensure that the app being corresponds to a common vision. We do our intensive homework to understand you, your business model and your users, so we can offer you with the best services. Our team evaluates the project scope, feasibility, delivery time frame and cost. We also make suggestions for improving project parameters so that the app becomes more effective and you are able to get the most out of your investment.
Wire frame design
This is the stage where the ideas start taking its shape. Once we understand what we are developing, we will create a wire frame which will be like a blueprint of the app that we will be developing. Wire frame enables us to explore the problem and define the solution at the same time. It frames our current understanding of the problem, while also helping us to figure out possible solutions. This is the stage where the changes can easily be incorporated according to your feedback on the wire frame.
User interface design
At this stage we will develop the photoshop design for the application based on the wire frame developed. This graphical concept will be based on approved wire frame and will be very close to what the final product will aesthetically look like. End user and user experience are given the utmost priority at the stage. The design, the color and the placement of each item are carefully executed with the end user on the mind. Your feedback on the stage is very important and we are ready to make changes until you are 100% satisfied with it. After you are satisfied with the design, we slice the design to complete the front end development of the App.
We will use the native or cross platform programming as per your requirements. At this stage, the front end design is translated into code as per pre-defined functionality. We follow a process of iterative and incremental development as it ensures excellent quality. Our developer will have to set up server, databases, APIs, and storage solutions for the App according to the plan. All the required functionality of the app will be developed at this stage. You will constantly be updated about the progress during the stage.
Quality is given importance at every stage of the development. But, this is the stage where we make sure that every aspect of the app is working as you desired. We follow standard testing methodologies to test the app at every stage of the development process and also take it through a comprehensive round of testing upon completion. We test the app under various environments and conditions to make sure that the app isn’t released with major bugs or crashes, and that real users are comfortable with using the app.
The Grand Launch
The day has finally come! Your app is finished, tested and ready to launch. The final step is submitting the mobile app to the app store so that it is available for download. The process of publishing your app to the app store can sometimes take a couple of weeks. Both Apple Store and Google Play Store have exact policies regarding what needs to happen marketing-wise, so that the product reaches the end-users. Our developers are well aware of the submissions cycle and guidelines of all app stores, which ensures the apps smoothly sail through the review process. On iOS, Apple manually reviews each app submission and may ask for changes before publishing it.
Maintenance and Support
Your product needs nurturing and we provide continuous support for your success. After launching your app, it is important to get feedback from the end users so that you can make future updates to the app and incorporate feedback on the changes.
