Let’s get started!

Our Process

Discovery

First, we begin with your app idea and work alongside you to define a process that best suits your business. Don’t worry, we will guide you through all available options step-by-step.
The main goal at this stage is to get your idea ready for development. Our app design and development services are tailored to each client, so it’s essential to get things right from the get-go.

Our Process

Design & Wireframe

Next, we address just what the client wants an app to do and who the target audience is. With this in mind, we create wireframes, then break down the wireframe into smaller subsets of screens to work on, called sprints. In each sprint we work solely on the functionality of the app, to determine how an app is intended to be used.

Once we have a well-functioning app journey, we move on to the UI design to make your app and brand design shine.

Our Process

Build & Develop

Often at this stage, a developer disappears down a coding rabbit hole and leaves the client in the dark. However, at Novaflip we guide our clients through our process step-by-step. We report on our progress regularly and remain transparent about changes or blockers throughout.

Ultimately, we like working with the client, not just for the client. We pride ourselves on our transparency, and our clients appreciate this greatly.

Our Process

Pre-launch Support

There’s a lot more than app design and development to be done before an app launches. We work with great beta testers, who offer invaluable feedback from the end user’s point of view. We debug and test, then test some more. 

Moreover, we will help you set up your app on all relevant app stores and assist in creating the listings. We’ll optimise them for search ensuring they contain all the right keywords – and buzzwords – that will attract browsing users and persuade them to download it to their chosen device.

“Daren is the best iOS developer I have worked with by a distance, not just in his ability to produce high-quality code but also in always keeping in mind what the output means for the end-user. This is a rare and valuable quality in a software developer.”

FAQs

What if I only need an Android or IOS App?

We offer app design and development for both Android and iOS native apps. Given that a cross-platform build can take longer, focusing on one platform can be a great strategy in some circumstances, including: 

  • You only require an MVP to show to investors
  • Your target audience only uses one of the platforms
  • You need to use lots of platform-specific features that are only available on one of the platforms
I have an idea but don't know where to start

After working with many founders over the years this is often the case. You can download our free App Planner to get started on your app planning journey. Additionally, we walk our clients through every stage of the app development process and offer advice on all aspects of the build.

Will I be able to give feedback as the app is built?

Of course! We use a system known as continuous integration. In short, this will produce a build (that’s an app on your phone) at the end of every day. In addition to this, we have regular catch-up meetings to check that progress is going to plan and make changes if required.

What is an MVP?

MVP stands, in this case, for Minimum Viable Product.

While founders are often excited as they believe they will be able to get a low-cost app, this isn’t the case. An MVP is about reducing features in an app so that it only solves the problem that founders are addressing.

In the mobile world there is a high expectation of quality, so producing an MVP with a low-quality look and feel won’t cut it with most users.

Can I get an MVP to show to investors?

Yes! This is something that we do as a part of building the full version of the app. It should be noted that the MVP will not be thrown away when the full app is developed. You can just think about it as an early version of the app with the core value proposition met.

Can you turn my website into an app?

We can do a direct conversion of a website. However, we do recommend using a subset of its functionality to begin with and seeing the app as a quick solution for users to perform 80% of what they do on the website.

What other costs are involved?

In addition to the cost of our work, there isn’t much else. The only additional cost we can predict is the Apple Developer program, which is $100 per year if you chose to commission an iOS app.

Can I have in app purchases on my app?

Yes, we can develop an app that supports in-app purchases. For delivering digital products or allowing extra features in an app, in-app purchases are a great way to increase revenue.
