FAQ

  • What is your app development process?
    1. Gathering requirements and creating a concept Likewise to any other process, ours starts with information and requirement gathering. In order to gain 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 the parts.
    2. Define MVP and roadmap Once we have a solid vision of the ideal end product, we begin strategizing and defining our roadmap for how to reach a proof-of-concept design. We prioritize the main features into the MVP and create a plan for secondary features.
    3. Design 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 essentially gets data from a server, shows it to the user, and sends input back as new data. As such, the success of an app depends on how good the back-end is. Consequently, when building systems, we usually start by developing the back-end. If you have an existing back-end, we will try our best to work with it.
    4. Proof of concept Next comes the very important step of building proof of concept prototypes, which allows us to verify our assumptions to avoid potential pitfalls.
    5. Building a foundation Once we know it’s possible to build all of the intended features, we start creating a foundation that includes a design system, UI/UX design, interactions, widgets and other tools and utilities.
    6. Develop the app On this foundation, we build app functionality iteratively, ensuring we are moving fast while maintaining a solid architecture throughout.
  • 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. You can find examples of our code on http:// github.com/ramotion/. We don't use ReactNative, Flutter, or the hybrid app approach in our work since we believe that sufficient quality, desirable performance, and good user experience design can only be achieved using native languages.

  • What technologies do you use for web app development?

    Most of the time, we work as a part of clients' front-end teams, so we use whatever technologies they require. However, our sweet spot is 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. Of course, we are open to using TypeScript, Lodash, and so on.

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

    Yes, we have a solid back-end team capable of designing, developing, and maintaining complex, distributed 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 needs, 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 quickly and hand it off to the client's team. Instead, our focus is to build a strong relationship with the client so our team can produce long-term value to the client's business over the years. Most of the time, we work on complex applications where we need about 9 months of design and development to release v1. However, with clients we have come a long way with, we can develop small apps to test ideas within 3-4 months.
