To make your dreams reality, we begin with a consultation, taking your initial idea and breaking it down into a textual plan, outlining what you want. This forms the basis of how we develop your app, so we prepare your quote based on this, letting you make sure that your desired feature set is within your budget.
Apps can get quite expensive – we understand this, so at this stage, we often discuss options around producing a minimum viable product; this lets you trial your idea and if it is successful, you can add features on.
Apps provide the next level of custom functionality up from a website
Wedje is ready to help develop your new app. Drop us your number and we’ll call for a chat about your idea as soon as possible:
Wedje began in the ‘web app’ space – developing custom solutions for our clients that let them accept and manipulate data in advanced ways beyond our standard WordPress offering.
As we’ve brought on additional talent, we have expanded our offering to include mobile apps. We generally use cross platform frameworks like React Native (which works on both Android and iOS) to help keep your costs down; we don’t think there is any reason you should be paying to develop two separate apps for the same functionality!
How we work together:
We’ve adapted our web development process to app development ensuring we continue to provide the client focused approach that’s made us famous. Let us know your idea – we have the expertise to produce a stunning user experience, with a robust back end.
To decide whether we can meet your needs in your budget, we take your initial idea, and flesh it out into a textual plan, outlining just what you want. This plan forms the basis of the rest of the development phase, so we prepare your quote based on this.
Once you accept our quote, our next step is to design a mock up. This ensures that we get your vision for your website correct, so we work closely with you in its design, before we even begin to code your site. If you decide at this stage that we can’t meet your vision, no harm – we will happily refund you in full.
Once we’ve scoped your project and you accept our quote, we then create a mockup of your app, giving you an idea of how it will look and feel. By working through these design elements closely with you before we begin to code your app, we ensure that we don’t waste developer time down the track, ensuring we keep to your project’s budget.
Next, we begin to build your app. This is a highly variable process depending on what it is you want. For most apps, you want more than just static content – you want the user to be able to interact with your application and generate different content based on what they want. To do this, we start by building the backend – login systems, an admin dashboard, custom features, databases and the like. Our team can use the technologies you want, or make recommendations if you are after that.
Once we have the back end functionality developed, we then begin work on the user facing app, based on the mockups we have agreed on. Our goal is to provide you and your users with the best possible experience, so we invest significant time in making sure everything feels snappy, and working through transitions between screens. We collaborate closely with you to make sure that we capture the user experience you are after, and work with you until the original design is completed to your specifications.
Finally, we hand over the app. This involves us providing an hour training session on how the admin dashboard or other custom features work; we can provide written documentation on request too.
Because we build our apps from the ground up, we can continue to build on the app as you have new ideas, or change existing features around as you want. So whatever your idea – rest assured that Wedje can build the scalable platform you need to bring it to life.
