MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

Platform-specific native mobile apps offer high performance, better customer experience and have higher reliability. Our expert mobile app development team has developed native apps across all platforms including iOS, Android and Windows. And for all popular devices like iPhone, iPad and various Android run devices. From ideation, engineering to user acquisition- we provide end-to-end services in building enterprise grade mobile solutions and consumer apps.



From your app idea to MVP definition

All successful apps start with great ideas. But not all great ideas lead to successful apps. The path to success begins with a sound mobile app strategy. At Artician, the mobile app strategy phase begins with our teams and clients researching the market, need, and potential user base — and then culminates when all stakeholders gather together in a multi-day discovery session.

We will deconstruct your idea, marry it with user needs, then align it with your business goals. Key members of our team collaborate with your stakeholders during a series of exercises to analyze the opportunity from every angle. And once we get to the very core of the idea — the place where the user’s value proposition and your business needs intersect — we’ll define the initial version and your app’s minimum viable product (MVP). And if during discovery, we find the idea doesn’t solve key user problems or satisfy a business goal, then we’ll help you redirect and take a different approach, rather than waste your time and money.

Either way, at the end of our app strategy phase, all stakeholders are aligned on the project goals and the MVP. And only then does the project move into the app design phase.

Mobile app strategy: High level goals

Our mobile app strategy phase is based upon the following high-level goals:

  • Determine what to build, and for whom
  • Identify and reduce unknowns
  • Assess costs and timing
  • Optimize budget, schedule, and goals
  • Gain alignment from all stakeholders

Mobile app strategy: Discovery exercises

We’ll take you through the following exercises during your discovery workshop:

  • Business strategy and product review
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPI) definition
  • User personas, use-cases, and primary user journeys
  • Feature ideation, definition, and prioritization
  • Product positioning review
  • Technical and system review
  • Design review
  • Monetization review
  • Launch and post-launch review

Mobile app strategy: Deliverables

After we finish our mobile app strategy phase, you’ll have the following deliverables in hand:

  • MVP (“minimum viable product”) feature list
  • Recommended roadmap
  • Product positioning statement
  • User personas and user task flow diagrams
  • Technical architecture/system overview diagrams
  • Design phase (UX/UI) itemized estimate and schedule
  • Engineering phase (UX/UI) itemized estimate and schedule
  • Recommended next steps

Great mobile app design starts with the user

We often get asked what separates a good mobile app design from a great one. It’s pretty simple, really: the user.

Designing a great mobile app is much more than just pretty screens. It’s about the customer journey — the path your users take starting the moment they download your app, and includes all the critical steps they take in the process of reaching the goals you defined as part of your mobile app strategy. Depending on the nature of your app,  this user experience (UX) design could include app store discovery, first launch/onboarding, social/sharing, checkout/purchase, re-engagement, and much more.

Once we’ve nailed the UX design, then we can focus on the visual refinements of the user interface (UI). This is where thoughtful details create the lasting nature of an app’s experience. It’s the little things like subtle animations, interesting backgrounds, surprising bursts of color that can transform an effective mobile app design into something delightful and memorable. It’s what turns users into loyal users, who become your most effective evangelists to encourage more usage.

Mobile app design | User experience (UX)

During the UX design, Artician creates design concepts that show how to meet the business goals defined during our Strategy phase. This phase includes the following activities and deliverables.

UX activities

  • Develop interaction design concepts
  • Develop wireframes
  • Define content strategy
  • Create app prototypes
  • Conduct user testing

UX deliverables

  • Content schema
  • App wireframes
  • App copy document
  • Testing insight and results
  • Back-end / API requirements

Mobile app design | User interface (UI)

During this part of the mobile app design phase, Artician will create the visual design system for the app’s user interface and then design the individual screens that comprise the app’s UI. We’ll take your company’s existing brand or product guidelines (if they exist) and weave these thoughtfully through the app’s UI to reinforce your image in a consistent and professional manner.

UI activities

  • Create screen-level nomenclature
  • Create multiple design concepts
  • Extend the brand look and feel
  • Create app prototypes
  • Conduct user testing
  • Refine and extend final design concept

UI deliverables

  • Unified visual design direction
  • Custom iconography
  • Design layouts in Photoshop or Sketch
  • Production ready assets
  • Mobile style guide

Tackling the toughest mobile app engineering problems one app at a time.

One of the benefits of experience is encountering problems you’ve seen before. We’ve been engineering mobile apps since the dawn of the App Store. There isn’t a problem our app development team hasn’t solved – even breaking through even the trickiest of technological barriers.

But we do more than just code.

Our mobile app engineers always look for better ways to build something and to innovate by finding new ways to deliver business value for our clients. Our app development team can handle the whole project, or one or more of our experts can join your existing team to help accelerate your product delivery plans or break through any technical roadblocks.

Application lifecycle management

Just because you published your app, it doesn’t mean you’re done. The world around your app is constantly changing, and your app will need to evolve. With our Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) service, we provide analysis, technical support, maintenance and peace of mind that your app will continue to function the way it was designed.

Artician offers ALM to clients for free for 15 days after the launch of an app. After those 15 days are over, you can choose to renew it for a period of time ranging from three months to two years.

Analysis

Artician will use a combination of analytics tools and crash monitoring to make sure your app is performing as expected. If we find issues, we’ll let you know what’s happening and make recommendations on how to address them.

Technical support

With ALM, Articians’s product leaders will respond promptly to any questions you may have about the functionality of your app or the way it is designed or implemented. And should any problems arise, we’ll diagnose the issue and identify how to resolve it.

Maintenance

Stuff happens. Issues arise. Changes to your app will need to be made to keep it current over time. Some examples of things that could happen that might require updates to your app:

  • New versions of a mobile OS (e.g. iOS, Androids, Windows) are introduced.
  • 3rd party plug-ins or other services your app uses (e.g. a social sharing feature) might be updated.
  • As your user base grows, unintended use cases expose new issues.

Don’t let your app get out of date. Talk to Artician today to learn more about our ALM service.
