What to expect during the project?
Step 1: Pre-kickoff email
When starting a new project, we send a message to our clients that include all the crucial information and guidelines. This helps us to start the project faster and put it on the right track from day one.
Step 2: Weekly status calls
You will receive weekly status calls with the entire team or just team leaders. The idea behind these calls is checking the project’s progress and setting the goals and priorities for the following sprint.
Step 3: Documentation and resources
We store all of the project resources in Confluence, a tool that makes documents easy to edit and share in collaboration with clients. You will get access to all the project documentation and other relevant information stored in one place.
Step 4: Transparent project management platform
Our team uses Jira to organize work, categorize tasks by sprints, and prioritize them. This is where the magic happens – and you will gain access to Jira as well. You’ll be able to find out more about the current project workflow, backlog, and all the task-related information without having to get in touch with us.
Step 5: Thorough reporting
We deliver technical and business reports once per sprint or once a month, depending on the specificity of the project. We do this to keep help you understand where your project is going and how it’s progressing from the technical and organizational standpoint.
Key technologies for iOS app development
Any questions about iOS app development?
Let’s check our FAQ or feel free to contact us!
1. What is iOS app development?
If your business targets customers (or employees) who are using Apple devices, building an app dedicated to them is a smart move. This is what iOS app development is all about. Despite potentially higher barriers to entry, building an iOS app can be just as smooth and easy as developing an app for the Android operating system. All it takes is proper planning and the right resources. By teaming up with an experienced development team, you can have your iOS app ready for publication in no time.
2. Which programming language is the best choice for building an iOS app?
Objective-C has been traditionally used for building applications that work on Apple devices. It has been a standard in iOS app development for many years. However, the language offers a complicated and verbose syntax. This poses a relatively high barrier to entry for developers.
That’s why so many companies are now choosing Swift as the primary technology for building their iOS app. Swift is a relatively new framework that became open source in 2015. The core benefit of Swift is that it offers all the features of a modern programming language like higher-order functions. It’s much easier to learn Swift, so you can be sure that the number of developers on the market proficient in this technology will be higher, and experts will be easier to find.
3. What's the difference between Android and iOS?
The mobile world is dominated by two operating systems: Android and iOS. However, before you make a choice for your application, here are a few things you should know about them.
The Android operating system is programmed in Java, a popular programming language used to day to build a wide range of applications. While Android apps run Java and newer technologies like Kotlin, iOS apps rely on Objective-C or the newer framework called Swift.
Quality Assurance forms an essential part of the mobile app development process. That’s why it’s essential that the app can be easily tested. The iOS simulator and the Android emulator are good approaches here, but the iOS simulator is much faster than its Android counterpart. However, the Android emulator is an effective virtual machine that includes areas such as CPU. This makes testing much more realistic, as sometimes the iOS simulator may fail to render an accurate and realistic representation of Apple devices. That’s what is essential to carry out testing on real mobile devices and check how the app’s interaction flow works to identify potential bugs.
There’s no denying that the quality of iOS animations is much higher than the ones in Android. Google has been busy trying to fix this with the preview of Android L and developing a design trend called Material Design. But Apple has been focusing on powerful and complex animations for many years. The company also takes extra care of its aesthetics and user experience.
Most of the time, the iOS development process is slightly more expensive than building an app for Android. That’s because the demand for iOS app is lower than for Android apps. Many different reasons account for that, but the most powerful one is the fact that Android runs on many different devices, while iOS can only be found in devices manufactured by Apple. In addition to this, the requirements for launching an iOS application in the Apple App Store are much higher than in the Google Play Store.
The app’s design is always closely related to its development process. Each of the operating systems comes with its own interaction and styles, which are strongly influenced by the company that backs them up. That’s why it’s essential to have an expert designer onboard who specializes in either iOS or Android (or both) operating systems to advise you on the project. This allows creating genuinely native apps that work well with the operating system.
App Store Optimization (ASO)
The question of App Store Optimization is another key factor you should consider before picking your platform. The truth is that App Store Optimization differs for an Android app and iOS app. When optimizing the app to perform in the store, you need to pay special attention to differences in titles and descriptions.
App monetization strategy
In general, the Return on Investment you get from an Android app isn’t as high as the ROI from an iOS app. Why is that? iOS apps are more likely to charge users for downloading them. They also often include in-app purchases. Android applications, on the other hand, are usually free to download and get monetized through in-app ads. That’s why your business strategy is another key factor that will influence the choice of the operating system.
Before choosing between Android or iOS, you should know what the current market situation is and understand whether your customer base is more likely to use devices with Android or iOS operating systems. That said, in December 2019, Android ranked first with a market share of 74%.
