Mobile App Design and Development Process
Tango Systems starts the process with a clear understanding of your idea, goals, ROI, target market, end-users and budget.
Once you commit to becoming part of our Tango Systems family and we have established the ground work and concept of the project, we start to take your idea and turn it into reality. One of the most critical parts within design and development is creating accurate and detailed wireframes/blueprint of your app.
Setting The Project Scope
The scope refers to what needs to be done, what you want to achieve from the app, and how large/small it has to be. In order to document the scope of the app, it’s crucial to identify some of the following:
– The nature of the app
– IOS/Android/Cross Platform
– Target audience
– Most crucial functions and features of the app
– Visual features,
– Potential technologies to be used
– Consistency with the business strategy
– Specific preferences
– Objectives and goals of the app
– Phases and sub-phases
– Tasks and resources
Based on the scope, the design and flow of the app, a team will be assembled to meet all demands and make sure our client is up to date and in sync, throughout the entire process.
User and Market Research
This is the phase where our UX and UI designers will get to work based on the scope of the app and on the app strategy. It involves market and user research.
Our team of designers will come up with the best UX design that will help your app stand out from the crowd and give the user an experience leaving them wanting more and more. Color, design flow and content are key attributes to continuing the user’s experience which in turn will give them the confidence to recommend or share with others.
How is it Done?
We start by assigning a team to conduct in-depth market research and analyze the existing apps in the industry. If we are going to create an image sharing app, its essential to look at the existing image sharing apps, their color schemes, patterns, flow, etc.
The user research will reveal colors, trends and themes that will help us develop and deliver an emotional connection with the target audience.
What type of colors and styles will the end-users prefer? Tango Systems uses different methods to collect data from the potential users such as surveys, focus groups, design workshops, etc.
Here is a tip – Sometimes users and clients have separate goals in mind such as ROI. It’s important to come to a compromise so our client achieves there goal and the user has a great experience.
The UX research, wire-framing, and prototyping are about how the app works while the UI design is about how the app looks.
Once the UX has been tested, tweaked, and several prototypes have been tested and finalized, we then move to the UI designing phase.
At this stage, we will deal with the visual representation of the concepts, color schemes, fonts, shapes, buttons, font size, images, forms, illustrations, animation, etc.
We will test multiple designs to see what works best for your users. The color schemes, skins, themes, and all the visual elements have to be tweaked several times to find what works.
The visual representation of the user interface is known as UX wireframe. We have to create a structure of the user interface, transitions, and interactions. It must be based on market research, user research, competition, and strategy. We use wire-framing software to create a digital outline or blueprint of your project.
The purpose of UX wire-framing is to define the flow of the app. Such as the number of windows or calls to action, where each action leads the user through the process, the login screen, and everything related to the front-end of your app.
This process is critical to ensure a complete and successful app which is delivered on -time. Picture building a house and wanting 4 bedrooms but the wireframe or blueprints only showed 3 bedrooms. Once development started it would be very costly to reconstruct the building to adjust for the 4th bedroom. The same thing applies when building an app. This is just one example why we take the wire framing extremely serious and walk through every step with our clients until they fully understand and approve the flow.
Creating Client Prototypes
Once we have the UX wireframing, we will complete a low-fidelity prototype. This is the next necessary step for our clients to see and get a firsthand feel for the app on an iOS or Android platform. Are you wondering why a low-fidelity prototype? The answer is simple.
We take great pride in utilizing project cost to ensure we spend resources on more complex aspects of each and every project. High-fidelity prototype consumes resources, time and unecessary costs.
A simple physical prototype will show you how the app looks and feels. The purpose of a prototype, by any means, is not to test or improve the functionality but to give you an overview how the app will flow.
Animation will be applied and tested with the UI design phase to test different styles of animation in real-time. Animation refers to the user interface animation such as how each new screen will pop out and how gestures are defined, and so on.
Interface animation has the power of grabbing user attention.
Motion design can effectively guide the user’s attention in ways that both inform and delight. We use motion to smoothly transport users between navigational contexts, explain changes in the arrangement of elements on a screen, and reinforce element hierarchy.
Animation will be functional instead of a simple design element.
– Visual feedback
– Function change
– Element hierarchy
– Orientation in space
– Condition of the system
– Visual prompt
– Fun animations
Final Steps To Launch
Software Architecture Planning
This is perhaps the most crucial part of the entire design process. The core purpose of software architecture planning is to scale the app, make it better in terms of functionality and design. It takes place as a parallel stage of designing. It involves our entire team including the designers, programmers, and managers. The idea is to improve the frontend an backend processes. by constructively tweaking the software architecture.
This process calls for regular constructive discussions on platforms, frameworks, abstract layers, design platforms, technology, components, etc.
The purpose of architecture planning is to define a structured solution that meets all the technical, operational, business, user, and system requirements. Understanding the end user needs before designing and redesigning.
It is also important in the architecture phase to identify key interfaces, layers, and subsystems, with an interactive approach. The software architecture process and methods are completed in simple form. Where phases are divided into iterations, which are then broken down into activities and then further divided into tasks.
App Development and Testing
Our development phase is where the sophisticated coding begins and our team of developers finalize the creation or our clients app idea into reality.
By the end of this phase our clients mobile app will be ready (i.e., scalable, aligns to the strategy, has all the perks, is well-designed, coded and works smoothly. Testing is the last phase before sign-off and release to launch. The purpose of testing the app is to ensure there aren’t any bugs and our clients app performs as expected.
There are several stages in our app testing process. This type of rigorous testing will ensure our clients app works smoothly. We provide different types of testing giving the best results.
– Functional testing
– Memory testing
– Performance test
– Security test
– Interruption test
– Usability test
Release To Launch
Let us turn you iDEA into a REALITY!
Finally… It’s time to release our clients app once it has passed the tests.
We will complete all documents to be submitted to Apple Store and Google Play per our clients instructions. It will take time, since most of the apps are reviewed before they are published. It can take up to a couple weeks for the app to get an approval, so we can prepare our clients release strategy accordingly.
Partnering with Tango Systems is the right business and best approach. We want our clients experience with Tango Systems to be exceptional and the user experience to match.
After a successful launch, Tango Systems journey doesn’t end there. We will continue to support and service our clients app project per our agreement. Once we have met all our obligations, Tango Systems will offer an extended warranty program. We have multiple pricing structures depending on the project or clients needs.
We can provide you with a NDA, Confidentiality Agreement, so you can feel free so you can introduce your idea us. .
