1. App concept & ideation

Business objectives are so important when it comes to your iPhone mobile development. Defining your business objectives will help you build customized apps that tie up to achieving your company’s objectives in the long run.

At Softway, we start by asking you the right questions. Ideas can be all over the place and that’s why in understanding your business objectives, we can take those ideas, brainstorm and take what fits for a workable app solution. We additionally understand how sensitive an app idea or concept can be to you as a client. Since we are all about making dreams a reality, you can trust your idea to not just be developed by the iPhone app developers in Houston but also optimized for search, user experience and ROI.

2. Prototyping for app element visualization

This is a phase where wireframes are drawn to offer a visual of the app prior to development. These are built to convey the visual appeal on iPhone mobile screens, that will help you as clients, see a blueprint of your concept and a preview of the product before it moves on to app graphic design and development.

At Softway, professional business analysts come into play. Their expertise working on cross-platform mobile apps and exposure to various industries, besides the technical know-how of the iPhone environment and process, equip them to effectively perceive your ideas. This way, ideas don’t get lost in communication. Ideas are transferred onto wireframes to benefit from app visualization prior to development. The benefits include: saving you from development rework costs, offering scope to improve on the design and experience and an on-time app delivery.

3. Graphic design for creative appeal

In this phase we focus on visual appeal. This can include the right colors, contrasts, fonts, image vs. text, videos, and other creative elements. This offers a more visual representation of your app concept. Here graphic designers take into account the responsive environment of iOS, be it iPad apps or the various iPhone screen resolutions, and design images or elements that offer the best user experience of your app.

At Softway, our app designers are experts in UX graphics and understand development ranges and limitations. They don’t just offer well-designed iPhone apps but provide effective custom apps that offer a seamless user experience in terms of design. Our graphic designers work with our development team to infuse a balanced perspective and user experience that delivers on the business goals.

4. App development & programming

This phase is where your programming and development approaches come into play. A business for various reasons could choose to build their iPhone app in a native environment, browser or opt for the hybrid approach. An approach may be chosen based on multiple factors but the main thing to refer back to are your business goals. The most ideal app approach, known for its support of robust applications, is the native approach. Since this can be very complex and demanding in terms of expertise, it’s important to find professional iPhone application developers in Houston.

At Softway, iPhone programmers are expert developers when it comes to all 3 approaches. Knowing the in-outs of the iPhone technology, we recommend building iPhone mobile apps in a native environment for the best experience. At the same time our versatility takes into account your business’s objectives and constraints and offers custom mobile app development solutions. Softway’s developers in Houston are well-versed in JavaScript and HTML and cater to businesses that need customized iPhone development services for quick deliveries, compatible for an iOS 7 to an iOS 9 device.

5. iPhone application testing

Like any product, an iPhone app requires testing before launch. Companies often need their applications to reach the market faster to earn their awaited ROI. To qualify for a market release via the App Store, the Apple team reviews the app as a final test of your app development.

Our iPhone apps development services in Houston ensure functional testing, usability testing, security testing, and load testing. All your mobile app development needs are found in a one-stop shop experience in Houston and where mobile testing experts and developers work cross-functionally to get the final nod.

6. iPhone app release & maintenance

This phase is where your iPhone mobile application is put to its final test. After several rounds of internal testing, an app must be submitted to the App Store. At Softway, we aim for the App Store approval in the very first go. This is one of the many benefits of investing with the expertise of an iPhone mobile application development company. Apple reviews the app for credibility, filtering out low-performance or quality apps and rendering flawless iPhone mobile apps available for user download.

More often than not, app owners tend to think of app releases as the final phase of an app development cycle. Softway’s project managers keep you informed of the maintenance costs that no one talks about. We keep you prepared of the various maintenance costs an iPhone app owner will have to incur. These costs range from investing in frequent updates, bug-free version upgrades, help desk for app malfunctions, back-ups, load and scalability testing. You can read more on mobile app maintenance on our blog.

iPhone enterprise applications

Custom mobile applications are important to provide users with real-time services. With the market being so dynamic these days, it no longer remains a luxury to empower employees and customers on the go. Competition demands it. Being able to provide that key information at the fingertips of your employees and customers is a sure shot to be able to stay at par with the competition, if not, ahead. Innumerable success stories quoted by a large number of corporations is proof that the distribution to reach your market is no doubt the preferred option. We can identify that distinct solution to solve your enterprise mobility needs. For example, a business may want to develop a GPS based application that helps their employees track their positions with respect to delivery points or be able to access a centrally located database repository to update information.

iPhone data security

Keeping your data in one system either at your desk or on the go will help keep your information secure. It is critical to ensure your custom iPhone app is developed in partnership with an experienced and reputed company that not only guarantees to address your security concerns but also provides functionality and a seamless user experience. For the healthcare industry, an advancement could be sending medical reports to patients, protecting unauthorized access by encrypting them, and providing passcodes for guaranteed security.
