FAQ

  • What is your app development process?

    During any of our mobile app development or web application development processes, we tend to keep to the following structure:

    1. Collection of requirements and creating an initial concept
      We begin with collecting necessary information and the desired requirements. And to build a clear vision of the required functionality and visual aesthetic, we build a high-level concept. You can imagine it as a prototype for a car; it’s far from driveable, but the model helps engineers to visualize and analyze all of its parts.

    2. Define an MVP and its roadmap
      Once we have a solid product future vision, we begin to define a business roadmap of how to reach a proof-of-concept design. Including only the core features into an MVP, while creating a plan for secondary features.

    3. Design a data structure and API
      Most modern apps offer a simple interface for back-end functionality. Whether it's a mobile or a web app, it directly interacts with the end-user with various data via its server. Therefore, the success factor of an app depends on the quality of the back-end. Thus, when building a new system, we usually start with the back-end. But if you have your back-end prototype, we will try our best to work with it.

    4. Proof of concept
      Next, we create a proof of concept prototypes, allowing our team to verify assumptions to avoid potential pitfalls or failures.

    5. Laying a foundation
      Once we confirmed the approach to building the intended features, we start creating a software foundation. That includes a design system, UI/UX design, interactions, widgets, along other tools and utilities.

    6. App development
      During this step, we build each app functionality iteratively, ensuring we are moving fast while maintaining a solid architecture.

  • What technologies do you use for mobile app development?

    We develop mobile apps using native programming languages such as Swift for iOS, and Kotlin for Android. However, we don't use ReactNative, Flutter, or any hybrid app approaches. We believe that a sufficient quality, desirable performance, and good user experience design can only be achieved using native languages.

  • What other services your app development agency offers?
  • What technologies do you use for web app development?

    Mostly, we work as a part of clients' front-end teams, so we use whatever technologies they require. However, our sweet spot lies in ReactJS and Vanilla JS. We are big fans of functional programming, so we have some of our front-end projects written in PureScript and Elm. But, we are open to using TypeScript, Lodash, and other technologies if necessary.

  • Do you have back-end engineers or only front-end?

    We do have a solid back-end team capable of designing, developing, and maintaining complex back-end systems with micro-services. We develop APIs for financial organizations, social networks, health platforms, and cryptocurrencies.

    Our main tools are PostgreSQL, Redis, Neo4J, and MongoDB. We have substantial experience working with AWS, DigitalOcean, and Google Cloud. Depending on platform requirements, we can work in diverse languages such as Java, Go, Haskell, and Python.

  • How long does it take to create a simple app?

    Our main goal is not to develop an app fast and hand it back to the client. Instead, our focus is to build a strong relationship so our team can produce long-term value to the client's business over the years. Mostly, we tend to work on complex applications where we need about 9 months of design and development to release its first version. And exactly with these clients, we can develop small apps to test their ideas within 3-4 months.
