Websites are passé, welcome to future of online world of mobile apps. Mobile apps are prevalent globally because of fast speed internet and ease of use. Mobile app is modern day tool for our day to day activities like hailing cab, ordering food, ordering items online. We consider mobile app development as the most easiest way to reach to customers. Mobiles are personalized devices where personal information, photos, events are managed by individuals. Mobiles are personal assets and so are the mobile apps. In one of the research, its found that people are more loyal to mobile apps they use and this loyalty is 99% towards the apps they love.

Artificial intelligence, Chatbots, Virtual reality, Augmented reality are some of modern names in mobile app industry. Many of the startups utilize the intelligence to make human life better and earth a better place to live. We help them to make it more effective and efficient as per modern day dialects
How it works?
Mobile app development process can be simplified in four different steps. First step being mobile app designs; User Interface designs carry 60% value of the total app development. Apps having similar business will be only differentiated based on easy to use user interface. User experience is another important factor which deals in navigation inside app, animation elements, steps of completion of activity (for example, in case of booking app, if there are more three clicks, user will be frustrated)
Design gives way to next step of Use Cases. Use case scenarios are various possibilities of user interaction. Use case document, use case scenario mindmap helps software development team to develop software with absolute perfection. Use case document helps Test Driven Development to flourish. It helps testing team to come up with various test cases. This step is iterative and can be converted to Agile development process step easily.
Development of mobile app is next step after Use case. It can be broken down to micro steps like Test -> Develop -> Deliver. Test case writing is developer’s responsibility which includes automated unit and integration tests. Tools like Travis CI helps development team in Continuous Integration with use cases.
Agile development methodology includes process of continuous integration where client expects two weeks of sprint. End of every sprint, we deliver a beta release through TestFlight or Android beta on app store or play store respectively.
Product release is final step where deliverables include documentation, support commitment, apple approval, play store approval. Apple release process sometimes become tedious where development team helps to complete review process. Support documentation and maintenance plan supplied at the end of making the product LIVE.
Post maintenance phase is considered as separate phase where the work is dependent on Time and Material basis.
