Let us share the good news: You need not worry about all of this because we at Skeintech have got you covered. We have an experienced and professional team of designers, coders, thinkers that can bring your business idea into the hands of your valuable customers.

Here are a few steps we follow to deliver your mobile app, from our first day of consultation to the lifetime support you’ll get after the delivery of the app:

9 Steps For Your Mobile App Development

Project Prerequisites

Knowing everything about your business and how you want your app to work and look like is the very first step in the journey of developing a successful app.

So, once you get in touch with our consultants, we will strategize:

  • What will your app look like?
  • What features do you want to include?
  • What’s your budget?
  • What mission and vision you're trying to fulfill through your app?
  • What alarming problems will your app solve?

The initial discovery session will help us understand your expectations from the app.

Once we understand the requirements, our team will then proceed to the next step in the journey.

Appraisal & Outsight of Your Project

After the initial brainstorming, we’ll prepare a plan-of-action for your project.

At Skeintech, we believe in first preparing a blueprint which is the best way to proceed with your unique product. Only after you approve the first draft, we’ll structure the legalities.

Paperwork

We’ll sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with you once we finalize all the planning and budget.

The paperwork will cover all the legal formalities so that there are no chances of misunderstanding during the development of your successful mobile app.

Signing an NDA ensures that all your intellectual properties and app ideas are safe with us, and you are the proprietor of your ideas.

After the paperworks are in order, we’ll now work on developing your visual idea as a tangible product!

Wireframes of The App

After we have figured out all the details, we’ll make the project wireframes.

Our developers will make the digital sketches, and these wireframes will give visual structure to your mobile application.

Apart from color schemes and styles, a handy wireframe enhances the user experience. Upon your feedback, we’ll then work on developing the aesthetics of the app.

UI/UX Design

This is one of the important steps while developing an application.

It bases the success of your app - how efficiently your customers are benefiting and adapting to all the app's features.

To make the user experience seamless, our team of professional designers will give a polished look to your app.

They will refine the user interface and user experience of your app so that it's user-friendly, interactive, and intuitive.

To make sure we are on the right track and are in accordance with your requirements, we’ll provide you with all the initial prototypes and the mock-ups of your app.

App Development

In this stage we will work on strategizing the app. We'll use the best suitable technology stack for your mobile application development.

There are three integral stages of a mobile app development:

  • Back-end
  • API's
  • Front-end

Back-end

Server-side objects and databases necessary for proper functioning of your mobile app are included in the back-end/server technology part.

They will form the backbone of your mobile application as without this your app will be nothing.

API's

API's or Application Programming Interface are an important part of mobile app development, as they are used as a communication link between the back-end and the application.

Front-end

This will be the front face of your mobile app which the user will use.

We'll make it interactive and easy to use for the user. All the features will be visible to the user.

After all the development process completes, we'll present you with the first draft of everything we've built for your approval.

After this we'll move a step further towards validation.

After your approval, we’ll work on testing the app.

Rigorous Testing

This is an exciting step in the app development life-cycle as the app is almost ready for the launch. Our testing team will handle this important task for your application.

Our testing team will thoroughly check for those minute flaws to make sure you get a properly functioning app

Our team will go through rigorous testing to find all the bugs or glitches and then resolve them.

Our testing team tests different real-world situations to check the behaviour of the application and to rectify all the technical faults left, if any.

After this step is complete, we are ready for the launch.

Official Release

Once you approve the final product and feel satisfied with it, we will help you launch your app in different app stores.

We’ll try to launch into as many marketplaces as possible so that it is accessible to a wide range of users.

Our team will monitor the terms and conditions of each marketplace so that your app complies with all of those rules set.

It is advisable that your marketing team starts with the process prior to the launch so that your launch can be a blockbuster.

Post-launch Support

Once your app is launched in the market, we will still be there with you if you require any of our assistance.

We’ll regularly update your application with new features from time to time. We will make sure it is compatible with the latest operating system updates rolling out on different devices.

Also, if at any stage you want to change something which your users or you don’t feel right after the official launch, we’ll take the required action.

This wraps up the detailed discussion of each step involved in the mobile app development with Skeintech.
