Have you got the next billion dollar app idea - maybe the next Uber or WhatsApp? With protection though our mutual NDA we'll help you validate the feasibility of your app idea and help structure a roadmap to bring it to life. We'll help you to be the next big apptrepeneur in this booming industry!
All apps start with an idea, whether it be for a disruptive new start-up or a process improvement in a global enterprise. We help you develop that idea into a viable solution. Then our Discovery process starts which is all about thinking big but starting small, by focusing on a MVP. By creating wireframes, Hifi prototypes and PoC‘s we can continually test the opportunity.
The yeast to the bread, the sail to the boat, the John to The Beatles: The Idea. You should have a good grasp of what the app will do and the goals that will be accomplished. Nothing will give you more headaches, unnecessary invoices and wasted time than shifting the idea in the middle of the project.
Here are a couple basic questions that will help you make sure that you know your product and where you want to go with it.
There will be a lot of other choices to be made, but don't worry if you don't know all the details yet. We can consult you on the best course of action to things like: what platform to release on (Android, iOS, web-based), naming of the app, etc.
First we start with wireframing. We ask our User Experience geeks to put their heads together to create the most intuitive and logical blueprint for the app. Wireframing is so crucial to the success of the app because it allows for mapping out the flow and fixing potential issues. We put extra time to make sure that the wireframe is solid to avoid flow changes in the coding stage.
Based on the wireframe, our designers and coders are doing their magic to create a beautiful and efficient MVP (Minimum Viable Product). The goal here is to focus on the basic features to release the app as soon as possible. This allows you to start gaining user and internal feedback.
Let it grow and make it rain! Release updates with new features, while staying flexible and responsive to your users. In the end, they will shape the app and will show you which direction to go. Remember to keep your favorite team close to help you along the way.
The timeline is relative to the scope of the project, but we aim to release MVPs within 3 months. You should also give yourself 3 additional months to test the MVP, prepare marketing materials, and release v.1.0 to the public.
Design and development of a compact MVP – one platform, standard features, 3 month timeline – starts at €10,000. Budgets will be based on required parameters such as platform(s), size, features, and capabilities.
