Apps for iPhone & iPad
iOS Design & Development
Our 6 step app build process ensures your iPhone App satisfies your requirements and design goals.
Our initial discussions cover what the app will do. We consider any design influences you may have, such as corporate branding, what iOS devices you’d like supported (iPhone 3, iPhone 4, iPhone 5 & iPod Touch, iPad) and what operational variations may be required for each device. We discuss any business rules that may be relevant as well as possible requirements for in app purchases & iAds.
How the app will work
Our next step is to develop a set of steps that describe how the app will work, who will use it and how they will use it.
Using this information we look at the flow of data & how the app screens flow together. This is based on our knowledge of standard iPhone user interface elements and interactions and allows a product design and interaction method that is fit for purpose and will be easy to use and adhere to the iPhone user interface guidelines.
We will design a basic wire frame layout, then once you are happy with the flow and basic on screen elements we turn it into a detailed set of UI layouts that give you early visibility of how the app will look and work. These detailed mock-ups are then used to build the actual app.
Once the app has been built, we take a video capture to show you how it works. Depending on the complexity of the app, we may send you a version of the app that you can run on your own iPhone. Once you’re happy and you’ve given your approval, we can begin the App Store submission process.
As soon as we have your approval we take care of the entire application submission process, from creating App Store icons, screenshots, age ratings, app categories and descriptive text and the subsequent management relating to the App Store submission itself. This process takes about 1-2 weeks and Solvd will manage this process end-to-end.
