iPhone and Android App Development Processes

Fruition prides itself on our processes. We’ve been building interactive solutions for a decade. This experience has taught us how to get things done right the first time. Here’s how our process works:

1. You Have an Idea for an App – if you’re reading this you have an idea that is probably keeping you up at night. Maybe it is a way to differentiate your business from your competitors, maybe it’s a novel game, maybe it’s something that no one has done yet. Taking your idea into the second stage or our app development process is where the feasibility of the app works itself out.

2. App Strategy – This is where a traditional business plan meets mobile development. How are you going to make money? Is this a paid app? Is the app going to leverage an existing service or product? These are questions that are often not easy to answer but are critical to fully work through.

3. App Architecture – This is where traditional white boarding comes in. Think wireframe or storyboards. We walk through the app on paper to make sure everyone “gets it” before the serious development gets underway.

4. App Personality / Design / Illustration – Are you designing a kids game app, an app targeted at investors, at collectors, at teachers, who’s the target audience. The questions that are answered in step 2 the business planning stage start to get a look and feel. Fruition’s app designers and illustrators work out the look which is translated into the images for the iphone and droid devices. The resolution on iPhones and Android devices is significantly different thus we ensure that the apps do not look like they were designed for the wrong platform. This is critical for the users first impression of an app!

5. App Development – This is where the heavy hitting takes place. The Apple SDK and Android SDK along with Google Analytics for mobile devices and the various ancillary code sets are what we dream about. We want your app to perform perfectly from the first day of launch and not crash devises! This is easier said than done when you’re dealing with massive code sets, perhaps dozens of APIs, and complex usability issues. Fruition’s mobile Quality Assurance (QA) team works through these issues so that your devices early adopters are not guinea pigs. Our goal is a top notch app from download number 1.

6. Mobile App Website Companion – It’s important to have a companion website for your mobile app. If you already have a traditional website it may include creating a landing page dedicated to displaying the mobile app. If you don’t Fruition can create a new website to showcase your app and field support questions.

7. App Release – It’s go time! Fruition submits the app to the iPhone or Android marketplace(s) respectively. The apps get launched and tracking beings.

8. App Marketing – It’s one thing to launch an app, it’s another thing to get the app ranked high in the marketplaces and on Google’s app search. Fruition’s dedication to search engine marketing carries over to app marketing. We ensure that your app rankings high and is visible for people searching for apps within your niche.
