What Is App Development?

App development is the process of creating a mobile application starting from initial conception right through to launch. It first starts with an idea. Your idea should create a solution to a user’s problem – you’ll want to ask why the solution doesn’t exist already to understand whether your idea will truly solve or a problem in a way that is user friendly. Once you’ve analysed your new idea and understand whether it is feasible you can then move on to the next stage.

Developing an app strategy is the important next step. It will be interesting to ask others about your app idea at this point to see whether useful feedback can be gathered about how it will look, work and feel. Once you can set a rough plan around things like how your app will be used, how you plan to market as well as launch, then you’re ready to find a trusted partner to realise your vision. That’s where we come in!

What Makes a Good App Developer?

That’s a good question and we’ve put these tips together on what to look for in a good app developer:



Your app developer needs to have a creative flair that doesn’t compromise on usability. Their work should engage the end user and effectively bring your concept to reality.

Cross Platform

They should be able to develop apps across multiple platforms



Good app developers are those that are able to work effectively as part of a larger team (whether these are internal or external parties). As a client you need to be included in the process for your app to be successful.


Great communication is important in all walks of life and app development is no different. It’s crucial at every stage as poor communication leads to delays, bugs and other nasty stuff.

How Long Does It Take to Develop an App and How Much?

Normally the first thing we’re asked when it comes to Bradford app development, we can answers these questions (although it’s a little more complicated than that).

The time that is takes to develop a mobile app can different depending on a few different variables. To give you an accurate idea of the time and cost of a project we’ll want to talk to you more about the purpose of the app, what kind of functionality you’re looking for, and what types of systems will need to be integrated, such as MySQL, PayPal, or a CRM. This all happens even before we give you a rough quote on the project, or let you know how long the project will take.

Just to give you a baseline, simple app development project generally takes a minimum of 3-4 months from the sign off of the design and creative elements. You can expect this will cost thousands of pounds. However, we’ll make sure you receive an excellent return on your investment. Plus, we’re here to support you each step of the way.

Hybrid or Native?

You’ll be asked this question alot when talking with potential app developers but what does it mean?

Hybrid apps tend to be quicker to develop and are a little simpler to create. This is because they are typically built using the same technology as web apps and websites. The final app can be made available on the Play Store, the App Store and can even be made to work on Windows devices.

Native apps however are built for a specific platform (e.g they will not work on any other platform). For example you can’t have a native Android app that works on an iPhone device. 

Benefits of Hybrid Apps

When it comes to hybrid apps, they can work on more than one platform and it only takes one codebase, rather than two. What does this mean for you? You’ll only have to pay half the number of developers that it would take to develop two native apps. In addition, your project will be completed twice as fast, making this a cost-effective process with a shorter time to market.

Hybrid apps are also easier to update in the future if needed.
