At Infoseed Computers, we take pride in developing custom iOS apps for B2B & B2C clients that leverage mobile technology to encourage productivity, brand engagement, and entertainment. In this proposal, I will outline our thoughts on how to best proceed with your app’s design, development, and deployment, and provide several development packages for you to choose from.
MEET YOUR APP DEVELOPER
It’s an exciting time to be alive. The world has been online for decades now, but only recently have we started to do most of our browsing, buying, and connecting with others through our handheld devices like smartphones and tablets. This means it’s more important than ever to not only have a strong online presence, but a kick-ass app to go along with it.
At Infoseed Computer s, we are driven to make your business better. Our team consists of veteran app designers from all walks of life. We have former nonprofits workers, team leaders who came from some of the world’s most significant technology companies, and hungry youngsters ready to show the world the next big idea. We’re a small team and that means we know each other well.
We also know the importance of truly standing out in a world where tens of billions of app purchases are made annually. Let us show you how we can take your company to the next level.
FROM IDEA TO APP
Much goes into the development of any app, and one made specifically for iOS users requires a couple of extra steps. Infoseed Computers wants to make sure you know how every step of the process will unfold, and in which parts you will be most needed or not needed at all. App development is a long process, so let’s get started.
Apple requires app providers to create a Developer Account before they can work within the
App Store. The process is fairly straightforward, but it’s not exactly obvious. From verifying your company’s legal status to obtaining a D-U-N-S Number, we have your back here.
A SINGLE PATH TO COMPLETION
This step in the process is where Infoseed Computers will be intimately involved. Think of it as making a checklist before you go camping. Sure, all you want to do is relax by the lake or roast marshmallows, but unless you’ve thought of all the things that can go wrong, or forgot to pack this or that, you might end up looking for a cheap hotel room instead of sleeping under the stars.
We’re experts at making these checklists, and we will spend significant time learning exactly what you want to accomplish with your new iOS app. This stage also involves audience engagement and research on our part. Whatever your target audience, we need to know what they want out of the app and how best to provide it for them.
FRAMEWORK AND CONTENT
We’ve come to the stage in which the app starts to take on a life of its own. Every website has a sitemap, and the same is true of apps. At this point, we know your audience and your desires for the app, so now it’s time to put it all together in a rough outline. This step shows Infoseed Computers what function’s and types of content will be necessary.
Wireframes are the structural core of your app, in much the same way as a website. They must be created so we know how to achieve your goals for your new app. While the app is far from complete at this stage, you will have a chance to see how it will work before the development phase.
Your company is unique , but you already know that. I t’s your brand, and Info seed wants to make sure your new iOS app does everything possible to promote and grow it. This step is where we glue everything together across all mediums — i.e., mobile, web, print — so we’re creating the most effective product for your intentions. Remember, your app is an icon on someone’s smartphone first. How it looks and what that says about the app’s ultimate functions are important to users. We’ll make sure your app brand is solid and memorable, and integrates seamlessly with your existing company brand.
UI AND UX
One thing that should be clear at this point is the popularity of acronyms. In this case, we’re talking about user interface and user experience, or UI and UX respectively. At this stage, we’ve created your blueprints and sitemap, all the inner workings of your app, so we need to give it a nice outfit. Here we’re going for aesthetics and functionality. You will have multiple outfits to choose from.
At this point in the process, you’re probably exhausted and ready to get back to your actual work. That’s good, because the development stage is when the client is least needed. We’ve done the leg work together, so now it’s time to build your new iOS app. This is time-consuming work, as we need to make sure no surprises arise. It’s better for us, the developers, to find the issues instead of your customers. Don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from us for a while. Once development is completed, your input will be much needed in the testing phases.
WELCOME TO THE APP STORE
This is another Apple-specific process in app development. With Android apps, anyone can build and launch them for download and/or sale. But with Apple, the company requires a review of all apps before they’re offered to the public. Fear not, it’s normal and relatively painless. It might take 7 to 10 days, and we will handle anything Apple has to say about the app. Infoseed Computers will be notified when this step is finished.
READY, SET, LAUNCH!
It’s been months since we started developing your new iOS app. You’ve spent a lot of money and time on this, and you’re ready to see it in action. Trust us, we are too. But before that can happen, we want to make sure we’re going forward on the best foot possible. This means up to a few week s of planning and familiarization with the App S tore. With your input, we will develop a strategy for marketing and promoting the app. We’ll teach you the App Store basics. And then we’ll let the world see something new and exciting!
