Our app development process


Step 1: Get in touch

Get in touch

You are not just looking for an app development team that does everything you tell them to do. You are looking for a team which you advises based on his experience and says how it has to be done to make it good. In the beginning we do always video calls with you to get to know each other, to answer any questions and already one to be able to give a rough assessment of the project.
  • Clarification of questions and advice on the project
  • getting to know each other
  • 100% free, we advise you because we like to do it
  • Rough estimate of the effort and duration of the development

Step 2: Design & Concept

Design & Concept

In this step we create the final design and concept for your project together. We build from that then a clickable prototype that basically feels like the finished app. That's important with that we can correctly estimate the effort for the project for you and, so that you can already judge whether that concept is conclusive. Doing this during development would waste a lot of time. So we completely rule out this problem.
  • We turn your idea into a real product
  • Clickable prototype for you or potential investors
  • Find out if the concept makes sense, otherwise adapt
  • Final effort estimation based on the finished design

Step 3: Development


After we have discussed our final estimate of the duration and effort with you and everything fits, start we with the development. We always make an onboarding call where we put you in touch with the team for your project introduce and explain everything to you. We work completely independently, which basically means you just have to occasionally answer questions. During development we are basically in permanent contact, even if it is questions or new ideas.
  • We are constantly in touch
  • First testable versions as soon as there is something to test
  • Adjustments and feedback are absolutely possible and desired
  • Video calls for queries or demos of intermediate results

Step 4: Release & Go Live

Release & Go Live

Quality assurance is one of the most important points in app development and the reason why many Teams work with us and not with no name agencies. We have an internal testing team and use Quality assurance tools such as sonar. This gives us a setup that is qualitatively comparable to that of large software houses can keep up. As soon as we decide together that the app is ready to go live, we load it into the App stores up.
  • Internal Testing Team
  • Upload to the stores as soon as the app is ready
  • Bugfixing by ticket system
  • Professional tools for quality assurance

Step 5: Support


We are always there for long-term projects (if desired). Many of our current “customers” are already with us for more than 5 years and build new features into their projects with us or ask us for advice or Support. The apps we build require little maintenance. Therefore, the support mainly consists of the development of new features or advice. However, as a professional app development agency, we can of course also offer 24/7 support if desired.
  • Long term cooperation if desired
  • Support for investor talks
  • Maintenance is not mandatory
  • We are available for long-term advice
