Mobile Apps Development
Mobile applications development
Is the process of creating, deploying and maintaining software that runs on a smartphone or tablet.
It has its roots in traditional software development, however there are some differences:
- Needs to be designed for small screens, using fingers rather than a mouse
- Should minimize storage, memory and data usage
- Must be tested on various devices
- It often needs to take advantage of some features that are available on mobile devices. For example: rotation, compass, accelerometer, location, camera, etc.
Most mobile applications use a network connection to obtain and/or store information. In those cases the process involves developing and implementing backend services in a cloud computing infrastructure.
When creating a new app (or major feature), we recommend starting with the development and launch of an MVP (Minimum Viable Product), a first version of the product with just enough features to be usable by early customers who can then provide feedback for future product development. This allows you to validate customer needs and demands prior to investing more time and money on developing a more fully featured product.
Silogik’s Software Development Process
As you will see in the chart below, we divide the project in phases, each with very clear deliverables and their associated costs, and at the end of each phase you decide if we are ready to proceed to the next or we need to make changes first.
