iOS Application Design And Development

Transform your next-generation iOS apps into astonishing realities with us

Your new iOS app is going to compete with over 2 million others for the attention of your target audience. That said, you can safely assume that your app will run you six figures.

As we have seen businesses all around the world migrating from the physical world to Mobile World. Being a business owner, you obviously want your business to grow and since then you have decided that you want to have a mobile app but still unsure that the iOS app is the one that can take your business to a new height. This is the right place for you...

You know how smartphone penetration is growing and in this growing world, Apple is ruling the world and is the first company with a market capitalization of more than a 2 Trillion dollar. And so as iOS has a special place in the market where people are willing to make in-app purchases more comfortably.

A huge amount of the market is preferring iOS. With that, there are many success stories of even small businesses that are generating millions of dollars in revenue.

So, it doesn’t really matter that your business is small or big. The only thing that matters is planning—planning includes idea validation, the team who will build it even where your money is secure, and a great UX/UI Design and Development process. So, you really need to make sure that when bringing your idea into reality, you follow this plan.

No matter what you need from your iOS experience, we'll guide you towards the most appropriate solution. Unlike redesign, when building a new iOS app, you don't have a starting point of reference. Since there are no existing layout, content, or visuals to improve upon, there's more upfront work required to reach the same outcome.

We'll put additional time and effort into the upfront strategy phase to make sure we have a solid execution plan in place depending on your exact needs.

We'll guide you towards the most appropriate solution and masterfully apply our 5-STEP UX/UI DESIGN PROCESS and 4-STEP DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.

Here are some clients we've worked with on iOS:

We connect deeply with the idea that the user, not the app, should be in control of the experience – the iOS concept of a “human interface. Therefore, we’re dedicated to designing interfaces that not only offer clarity, and crispness but also visual depth.

We have launched a handful of iPhone apps for our clients and more than half of our iPhone apps have been featured in the Apple App Store – our commitment to designing them for the user has helped them stand out.

How We Design Stunning iOS Experiences & iPhone Apps

Designing a new iOS experience for the iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch isn’t just about attractive pixels and cool animations. For us, it’s about defining your business goals, understanding your users’ needs and creating a meaningful experience that your users will comprehend. Thus, we create iPhone experiences that are built on data, research, years of expertise and most importantly our users.

Bringing life to our iOS app design all starts with an in-depth planning process. This process allows us to better understand your target audience, your business situation, and your vision for this mobile app experience — we call this our 5-STEP UX/UI DESIGN PROCESS

01 Step: Understand & Discover

For designing a new iOS Mobile app, we start the project with following a business-first approach to understand your business needs, goals, and missions through Stakeholder interviews, Business model canvas, and Competitive analysis. This results in creating a shared understanding inside and outside the team while ensuring that the needs of the business receive just as much attention as the needs of the user for creating the iOS Mobile app.

02 Step: Research & Explore

After we know that the project is in line with your Business’s core mission and goal, we jump into researching your targeted users focusing on your iOS mobile app to validate plans and uncover hidden opportunities by conducting user interviews, focus groups, and surveys. This step is the Life Blood of your app because the insights that are discovered and unearth while researching lays the foundation for the successful user experience (UX) design and development of your App.

03 Step: Analyze & Define

The insights taken from user Interviews, Focus groups, and Surveys become our north star for analyzing and distilling the most important elements in your app. So, we walk into the user’s shoes by creating Empathy Map to gather data like what the user Says, Thinks, Does, and Feels. Then to develop a shared understanding of their needs, we create the profiles of targeted user persona and proceed towards creating a customer journey map for the understanding of what they are experiencing when they will interact with your Mobile App.

04 Step: Design and Craft

Once we’ve gathered data and formed a digital strategy for you, we start to design the iOS app where we create the user flow and plan an experience that converts with action-driven solutions which include the building of information Architecture, Wireframe, and UI design resulting in pixel-perfect UI screens, organized into a carefully crafted design. We make sure to design human-centered iOS apps by keeping the end-users goal in mind.

05 Step: Usability Testing

If you wait until launch to get important insights from your users, you'll miss the opportunity to amaze them. So, we endorse testing to reduce assumptions and validate early on in the project to save money and time before writing any code.

Thus, we perform Usability Testing where we observe your target audience using your iOS App or the program, and the deliverable i.e., Tested Clickable Prototype is passed to the development team for coding.

This is a great opportunity to see how happy your user is with the app and if it adequately addresses their needs.

How we Develop Next Generation iOS Apps

To ensure that your app scales with you user base, building and launching an app is not enough, instead you have to deeply understand your audience and develop a roadmap.

Thus, our approach to developing an iOS Mobile app is determined by your goals and an in-depth planning process called the 5-STEP UX/UI DESIGN PROCESS while allowing us to better understand your users, your business and your vision.

So, the 4-STEP DEVELOPMENT PROCESS starts, once the deliverable of the 5-STEP UX/UI DESIGN PROCESS is passed to the development team where it will be coded.

01 Step: Pure Code & Development

We take care of the app development stage right from the start to make your iOS app better than millions. Hundreds of hours go into coding that comes out clean and perfect resulting in a delightful experience. Our developers’ who are skilled in Objective-C, Swift, and Xcode make the attributes stand out by turning the usability of your iOS App at its max.

02 Step: Testing and Assurance

Once our developers deliver the iOS App, there are several ways we can go about making sure that the UX design and development of your App is perfect (or close to it) i.e., From internal testing when our own team tests to Beta launch when we release the limited version of your iOS App along with unit testing, manual testing, regression testing, security testing, and automation testing - we do it all to ensure the outcome is bug-free prior to the app launch.

03 Step: Deployment & Launch

After the Testing & QA phase is over and no bugs or errors are left, the time has come when we deliver the iOS App to you. As you give us the green light to go ahead with the final app for submission, we register you for the Apple developer program account, configure your app for distribution with the appropriate information and submit your version for approval. Once App Store approves your App, we Launch it to the world and distribute it to your potential users.

04 Step: Maintenance & Support

To say, the Maintenance phase is the last phase but actually, it is just “the end of the beginning.” Because your iOS app is released and real customers are already using it. Our goal of Maintenance is to support those customers and to ensure that your app is working as expected in the long run.

Any necessary enhancements, corrections, and changes required are made to make sure the app continues to work, and stay updated to meet the business goals.

Questions Frequently asked by our clients, The clients we work with, have the best experiences. And We take pride in making our clients' lives as easy as possible during the project.

Which is better, a mobile website or native mobile app?

If your goal is to offer mobile-friendly content to a wide range of people, then a mobile website is probably the way to go. However, if you want to better engage, interact with, and communicate with your customers to drive customer loyalty, a mobile app is an excellent choice.

Can you code a mobile website or mobile web application?

Yes! We excel at designing and coding websites. Since a mobile web app is just a smaller, mobile-optimized version of a desktop website, we’ll have no trouble coding our designs.

Do you also design Android apps?

Yes! iPhone and Android apps share extremely similar interface elements. There are also developing methods that allow us to build it once and publish it to the iOS and Google Play stores with relative ease.

What is a style guide?

A style guide is a visual rulebook of graphic standards that will help keep your interface looking great, even as you add new features in the future. We’ll put the power in your hands to help you update and extend the look and feel of your app as your business grows.

What is a development consulting?

All too often, your beautifully designed screens will end up looking sloppy and unrefined after being coded by the development team. Development consulting means that we’ll communicate intelligently with your development team to make sure our designs are implemented perfectly both in form and function.

Do you offer ongoing support or maintenance?

We offer a short period of support from the day your app launches to fix errors, bugs, site crashes, etc. However, any additional features, updates, or revisions outside our agreement will be treated as a new project subject to new pricing and timeline.
