We design and develop an app for the mobile platforms Android and iOS - from smartphones to tablets. Thanks to Facebook's React Native technology, we can develop a cross-platform and remain cost-efficiently up-to-date on the major operating systems. For the app project we accompany you from the initial idea to the publication in the digital stores and beyond that with the continuous further development. We plan together taking into account current trends, established procedures and current market requirements.
From the idea to the App Stores
Analysis & Planning
Step by step, we work with you to develop a plan to define the timeframe, content and financial framework of the app project. We take a look at the mobile market and the space it contains for your ideas.
In workshops and comprehensive consultations you will receive an overview and recommendations based on your ideas.
Concept & Design
Based on market insights and the created plan, we design a strategy for content and user guidance of the app. To ensure that nothing stands in the way of an optimal user experience, we coordinate rough sketches of the app with you in the form of wireframes. With these, we develop an interface with flawless aesthetics. We are then happy to build you a working prototype so that you can test the app before development.
Implementation & Beta tests
After concept and design follows the programming. We implement your wishes in several phases and continuously check the quality of the app. Via Apple's TestFlight and Google's Play Store, we provide alpha and beta versions to you and a group of people defined by you. In this way, the quality of the app is ensured again and again in several steps - All reported bugs are thus eliminated before the release.
At launch, your app will be published in the Google Play Store and iOS App Store, making it available for download on any classic smartphone worldwide.
In order to present your app optimally, we take care of the correct description and the presentation including screenshots and videos.
Quality assurance & maintenance
Of course, we will continue to support your app even after it has been published. We keep the app up to date, adapt the functions and contents together with you again and again. Furthermore, we always keep the app up to date with the latest technology and ensure continuous updates in order to always be compatible with the latest operating systems. Using a feedback system, we analyse user behaviour, the number of installations per operating system, device, country and technical details.
Technology – proven and highly up-to-date
We will implement your app with proven and modern technologies. There are different ways to develop an app, of which we would like to make a clear recommendation in the following. But we also want to mention other possibilities.
Progressive Web App
One option is to develop as a "Progressive Web App". In this case, we develop your app as a website that can be saved on the home screen via the browser. iOS and Android share the program code almost completely.
- Good performance
- Same look on all operating systems
- No installation necessary
- Features and interaction possibilities differ from those of well-known apps
- No publication in the App Stores
We prefer to use Facebook's open source technology React Native for app development. This enables simultaneous development for iOS and Android ("crossplatform"), whereby a large part of the program code can be used for both operating systems.
- High performance
- Release in Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store
- Allows access to many native features
- High customization possibilities for app design
We develop apps separately for Android and iOS. In doing so, we exploit all the possibilities of both operating systems and thus guarantee maximum performance and user experience. This means almost double the effort - in contrast to our recommendation React Native.
- Publication in the App Stores
- Maximum performance
- Use of all possibilities of the terminal device
- Independent app required for each operating system
- Significantly higher development costs than with React Native
For Medion AG in Essen, Germany, we have developed a fitness app that sees itself as a companion to the smart sports equipment of the technology company. Thanks to the technology in the smartphone and sports wristband (including GPS, pedometer and heart rate monitor) - together with our app - all important movement values can be monitored. With a cloud synchronization system designed by us, the data can be synchronized across all devices and is retained even if the device is lost. A community feature allows users to network with each other and compare their sporting achievements.
Since 2019 the cooperation with Medion AG has ended.
The app "My way, my time" for the Catholic German Women's Federation Munich shows editorially led religious impulses, which the user can see in a list or on a Google Maps map view. Furthermore, we have integrated the possibility into the app of sharing one's own intercessions and thank you texts, which are saved on the server side. The administration of user-generated content can be conveniently managed by the KDFB staff in their own backend.
The Emscher Lippe Energie GmbH gives people the opportunity to find regional offers in their area. With the corresponding "ELE Card mobil" app, which we have developed, you can filter the offers in your area via GPS. The registered user also has access to the administration of his ELE Card via a login function. The app also allows users to show digital membership documents instead of a physical card at discount locations.
