Should a Native iOS app & Android App, a Hybrid App or perhaps something completely third such as a Progressive Web App be developed?

When the first Smartphone was released in 1994, it had about 10 built-in apps. However, over 10 years later, in 2007/2008, Apple opened up iOS Apps to be developed by third-party companies. Google followed suit a few years later, and since then the market has exploded. In 2017, 41% percent of all Danish smartphone owners had installed more than 20 apps in addition to the pre-installed ones, and over 2/3 had more than 10 third-party apps installed.

Today there is a sea of ​​technological possibilities, and it can be difficult to navigate for the inexperienced. The app market is huge and growing, but at the same time users are critical and impatient with bad user experiences. It is therefore essential that the right technologies are chosen for the project and that both technology, code and design are of the highest quality. Therefore, our consultants spend a lot of time initially sparring with you about the project, as well as advising on the technologies that best suit your specific needs. We do this completely free of charge and without obligation, as we have learned that successful cooperation is predicated on us jointly choosing the right digital solutions. Both for today's and tomorrow's challenges.

UX DESIGN AND USER TESTING

The starting point when creating apps is very different from customer to customer, but always starts with a good idea or a problem that needs to be solved. Whether an app needs to be created for the market, a work tool for the company, or some form of contact surface between the public employee and the citizen, there are endless possibilities for how it can be done. Therefore, we spend a lot of time, both initially and continuously, challenging and analyzing the concept, while at the same time developing visual prototypes based on what are called 'wireframes', i.e. sketches and flow charts of the app's pages and user flow. This is also called UX design, which is short for User Experience. For some projects, it also makes good sense to do UX tests with real users, so that you can get valuable feedback for the concept development.

When we agree on the user flow and functions, the work passes to our graphics department, which in sparring with you develops the visual brand and design of the app. Companies often have a brand book/design book as a starting point, but other times a complete visual concept must be created from scratch with logo, design style, color theme and font types. This is also called UI design, which is short for User Interface. When creating an app, it is also important to create a detailed plan of the concept, development tasks as well as time horizon, milestones and budget. Both for the first version, but also for later additions.

When programming, the project manager controls the battle and ensures that the deadlines are met and the concept is developed into exactly the app we have in mind, and tests are carried out continuously. Making apps can be more complicated than you first expect, as one app for iOS, one for Android and a web-based back-end / app server must often be made. In addition, there may be special skills within hardware integrations (IoT), machine learning and AI, database construction, etc. That's why we put together a team of IT experts with experience in exactly the technologies that need to be used.

The project manager follows you through the project and, together with the customer consultant, will be the ongoing point of contact. You will be able to follow the development closely through our project management tools, and you will have the opportunity to continuously test alpha/beta versions on your own smartphones. Changes, questions and the like can be quickly reported and handled by your project manager.

We continuously test during development, and when the last beta version is ready with full functionality, our dedicated testers will ensure that the app works exactly as intended, and is optimized for different screen types and smart phones. Before the app is launched, we will also go through a beta test period with the customer, where you will also have the opportunity to test. Subsequently, we help create a developer account with Google and Apple, and launch the app in the appstore and Google Play under your name. We continuously advise on meeting their requirements, and ensure that we do not develop an app that cannot be approved.

Once the app is launched, we offer to be responsible for the continued operation, maintenance and further development of the app. We can monitor how the app is performing, set up security systems, handle security reporting and make sure it's always online.
