Key Questions to Consider Before Starting Mobile App Development
1. What is the purpose of the app, and why make it?
2. Who is the target audience, and who will use it?
3. Why will people use your mobile application and consider it a unique user experience?
4. What are the competitive products: native apps, hybrid apps or maybe a cross platform app?
5. How much time and money do you have available for development?
6. In addition to developing the mobile application, will you also need support?
In our experience, discussing and agreeing on the above questions is essential for successful app development.
We can help you think it through!
Why Choose Cross Platform App Development?
According to Statista, there are 3.48 million apps on the Google Play Store and 2.22 million on the Apple App Store. Today, both target groups need the new mobile app. This is supported by cross-platform solutions.
Low development costs
Cross-platform development means your app is built for both iOS and the Android mobile platform at the same time, on a common code base. There is no need for two separate teams, so the cost of mobile development can be kept significantly lower.
Easy to upgrade
If you were to build your mobile app separately for iOS and Android, you would have to maintain the code separately after the launch. In the case of cross-platform, a single code needs to be managed, so further software engineering is easy.
Nowadays, the basic expectation is that the corporate image and branding should be the same on different devices, as we use multiple devices within a day. Support for branding is a given for cross platform app development.

The App Development Process
1. Request for offer
Request a quote from us by email or by using the request form above! Enter your contact details and we will contact you ASAP to arrange an appointment! The more information you share with us about what mobile app you need, the better! You can also send us design and functionality ideas, images, descriptions. Whatever you think is necessary to understand exactly what you want.
2. Needs assessment, requirements analysis
Following your request for a quote, we will arrange an online Zoom/Teams meeting with you for a few hours. Discussion of your functional and design requirements will follow, as well as the project schedule and development process. Together with our team and project manager, you will define the purpose of the app development: who will use the app, how it will be unique, who are the competitors, what makes your mobile app better than what is available on the market. Following this, we will define the MVP (Minimum Viable Product), i.e. the minimum product development needed to be sufficient to enter the market. At this stage, let's discuss your medium and long-term plans, look at mobile apps that you think are good and also at designs that can guide us.
Within a few days after the needs assessment, we will prepare an offer for you, which will include the technical content of the mobile application to be developed and the price of the application. Together we will refine the offer until it fully covers the technical content you want to be implemented and the price at which this is possible.
4. Conclusion of the contract
Once the proposal has been negotiated and accepted, we will prepare the contract for the mobile application development, including the accepted proposal and a project schedule defining what we will be ready to deliver by when. We are ready to work with either agile, scrum, kanban, or waterfall methodology.
5. Preparing a UX sketch
We will prepare a sketch of the mobile application you have requested. This is literally a sketch that visually represents what your app looks like in a rough sketch, what screens it has, what it looks like, what features your mobile app has.
We believe that the more thoroughly we discuss and think about the sketch together, the better your mobile app will be and the faster we can get it done.
6. Assembling the wireframe
The next step in mobile app development is to build the wireframe of your mobile app based on the UX sketch. The wireframe will be much more detailed and will definitely include all the screens and features you'll need.
7. Design planning
Based on the wireframe and your previous input, we will create the design of your mobile app. As part of the design, we'll create font sizes, buttons, colors, and motion effects. Our goal is to give your app a consistent, unique and professional look and feel. This is what our colleagues will work on and we expect as many thoughts and drafts from you as possible throughout the whole process to come up with the best app idea.
8. Mobile app development
The first goal is to build your mobile app with the functionality of the MVP defined earlier. To do this, we will use the technologies described above, as well as all the designs created in the previous phases. Our mobile app development team will build your app with the utmost care, you can be sure of that!
For mobile application development projects to be successful, it is essential that both functional, UI, and performance testing are carried out to a high standard. Our assigned mobile app developer will perform compatibility testing and security testing.
10. Launch your app in AppStore and Play Store
After testing, your app is ready to be made available to users. Your app is registered in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Your submitted app will go through a review process. Each platform has a different review process, so it may take a few days or more to publish your app.
11. Further development and support
Once the application is live, medium and long-term development plans can be discussed. Whether or not we continue to develop your mobile app, you can count on our support, because our goal from the very beginning has been to create the mobile app you envisioned, and to do it in a way that you and we can be proud of!
