What Is App Development?
This is the process of creating a mobile application, which starts from the initial concept and goes all the way to launch. We begin with your idea. Your idea should create a solution to a user’s problem. You’ll need to ask questions such as why the solution doesn’t already exist. In addition, you’ll need to consider if your idea will truly solve a problem in a way that’s user friendly. Once you’ve analysed your idea, and understand if it’s a feasible project, then you can move on to the next stage.
Developing an app strategy is the next important step. At this stage, it’s helpful to ask others about your app idea, to see whether they provide useful feedback on how it will work, look and feel. When you have a rough plan based on how your app will be used, then you can plan on how to market and launch the app. At this point, you’re ready for a trusted partner to realise your vision. This is where we come in.
What Makes a Good App Developer?
We’re happy you asked that question! We’ve put together some tips on what to look for in a good app developer:
An app developer needs to be creative in a way that doesn’t compromise the usability of the app. They should be able to engage the end user and effectively bring your concept to reality.
An app developer should be able to develop apps across multiple platforms.
You want an app developer that is able to work with you as part of a larger team. As a client, you need to be included in the app development process in order for the app to be a success.
An app developer needs to have excellent communication skills. This is crucial at each state of the development process. Poor communication only leads to delays, bugs and other nasty things.
How Long Does It Take to Develop an App and How Much?
These are important questions to ask and we’ve got the answers for you. Normally, the first thing we’re asked when it comes to York app development.
The time needed to develop a mobile app can be different, depending on a few variables. To give you an accurate idea of the time and cost of a project, we’ll want to discuss the purpose of the app with you. What kind of functionality are you looking for? 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 projects generally take anywhere from a minimum of 3-4 months from the sign off of the design and creative elements. As for cost, you can expect this to cost thousands of pounds. However, we’ll ensure you receive an excellent return on your investment. Plus, we’re here to support you at each step of the way.
Hybrid or Native?
You’ll be asked this question quite often when talking with potential app developers, but what does it mean?
Native apps are built with a specific platform in mind (e.g., they will not work on any other platform). For example, you can’t have a native iOS app work on an Android device.
Hybrid apps, on the other hand, are quicker to develop and 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 for the App Store, the Play Store, or even made to work on Windows devices.
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? It means you’ll only need to pay for half the number of developers than 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.
