What is the process for building a mobile app?

As experienced mobile app developers in Perth, we have years’ worth of high-level development expertise under our belt. Here’s a walkthrough of a typical app creation process:

1. Research

The first step to building an app is to analyse the target demographics, needs, and behaviour. We also research all the features you want to include in your app, how it fits into the market, and other factors that can help us build an outstanding product.

2. Wireframing

Wireframing an app is crucial because this is when we develop the blueprint of how the app looks and behaves. It creates a clear image of the connections between each screen and how you can navigate between them.

3. Feasibility Assessment

The next step is using the wireframe created as a guide to building the backend structure that will support your app. After building the app structure, we test its technical feasibility to see if it is stable and supported by the desired features.

4. Design

To make an app look like a proper product, we look at its overall design and user interface. We consider your brand’s image and identity to make the app unique and quickly identifiable.

5. Development

The app development phase starts with a working prototype. We’ll repeatedly test the prototype through all the development stages to squash bugs early on and further refine the app.

We test the app for security, usability, performance, compatibility, and other criteria.

6. Launch

After rigorous development and testing, the app is finally ready to be launched. After launching, we continue to monitor user feedback on the application and update it with new fixes and features as needed.

How can building an app benefit my business?

Some of the crucial benefits of mobile app development are:

Better Audience Targeting

You can better customise promotions and offerings for your app users based on their preferences and usage. It’s also easier to send notifications and news directly through the app.

Increased Customer Engagement

With your app being on users’ devices, your services are just one tap away. Customer Loyalty A good app promotes customer loyalty, especially when it adds value to a user’s daily life.

Increased Accessibility and Visibility

Mobile apps provide users with quick and convenient access to the services and information they need.

Better Brand Recognition

Apps that users love help to promote your brand and can increase your brand’s recognition, which is often more effective than conventional advertising.

Effective app development not only makes your services and products easily accessible to your target audience, but it can also help to increase engagement and loyalty amongst your customer base.
