From Idea to App in 3 Weeks: How It Works

Home/News/From Idea to App in 3 Weeks: How It Works

Sounds a little too good to be true, doesn’t it? I’m not gonna lie to you, it’s not exactly an easy task we have ahead of ourselves. But we are not insane; we know what we are doing. 3 weeks isn’t just some arbitrary number we threw together because we thought it would make for a cool slogan (that’s just a convenient byproduct). It’s a number our developers (each with over 20 years of experience in software engineering) have determined to be the ‘sweet spot’. A product of all that time honing our skills, streamlining our process, and even making mistakes—from which we’ve gained some invaluable experience. We’ve done it before, and we can do it again for your company; it all starts with 3 weeks.

As for what exactly we would do with those 3 weeks, we begin with the envisioning stage. Probably the single most important part of the whole process. You see, it comes down to proper and careful planning. Making the time to take a long, hard look at your company, business, market—and your existing mobile app, if you have one. This is crucial. No one business is the same, and understanding what makes yours tick allows us to identify the key feature that makes you indispensable to your audience. Building around that keeps the project focused on what matters most, avoiding common development pitfalls (like scope creep).

Once we have envisioned our finish line, with eyes on the prize, it’s time for us to put our expertise to good use. Enter the development stage. As we’ve mentioned before, Xamarin is our specialty. We know the technology from every angle, and prefer it for it’s cross-platform flexibility and complete development ecosystem. With Xamarin on our side—and our team of (certified!) experts behind it—we can guarantee faster time to market, same functionality across all platforms, and lower total development cost.

We could go on about development all day, but there’s no time to waste! At this stage we will have a proof of concept for you to test. We give you a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), a version of your app at it’s earliest stage. It has just enough features for you to start fiddling with it, testing it, and get a feel for its potential. That’s the deployment stage. For you, that means having some fun with the MVP, for us it means entering the post-mortem stage. With the proof of concept in your hands, we can start gathering feedback to plan ahead, and make way for further development.

Now 3 weeks have passed. Up to this point, we have evaluated your business, charted a path to success, delivered a proof of concept, and (based on feedback) elaborated a strategy to make it into a fully featured app. That is phase 1 of getting you the mobile solution your company needs. From this very first step, you can already look ahead at the entire process of getting you from where you are now, to where you want to be. This is what we promise you. We are not at the summit just yet, but we can see it from here. And if you give us the chance, we’ll take you there, guiding your business to new heights.
