Building a successful iOS app (iPhone or iPad) requires more than just an understanding of Objective-C or Swift programming languages. It requires knowledge of best practices to keep the app running smoothly, experienced project management to make sure requirements are planned and prioritized correctly, and systems to allow for code management as well as continuous integration.
Apple users expect a certain type of user experience. Apple created a closed ecosystem that requires all apps to pass Apple’s quality control before going live on the app store. As shown in the pie chart below, the average income of apple users is higher than most other platforms.

We work with early-stage startups to established organizations to develop custom, data-driven iOS apps. Whether you are creating a product to take to market or just trying to create additional efficiency in an already well-established organization. We have a proven process to make your app successful:
An experienced developer needs to understand what the capabilities of iOS are. From iCloud to GPS to access to various sensors or the camera. A deep understanding of Objective-C and Swift are a given. It’s important to have a deep understanding of Xcode and the iOS SDK because they provide the frameworks, tools, and compilers needed to develop iOS apps.
Experience is what allows us to see future obstacles before they become an issue. It’s what allows us to understand UI/UX needs and what allows us to help you understand the pros and cons of any decisions. It’s what allows us to help you build something that has the best chance of succeeding. If expertise is the science, experience is the art.
Solid processes are paramount. Without a proven process to discover, document, and organize feature requirements in a way that is understandable to you and usable by the development team, you may as well open your wallet, turn off the lights, and grab some duct tape to fix what comes out the other end.
Our processes are renowned for keeping budgets in line, scopes intact, and helping you make the best decisions about your project.
One of the ways we develop so quickly is that we can utilize code modules that we have pre-developed. Need credit card processing or maps integration? We already have code we can integrate and then customize. We work with repositories to check code in and out so that multiple developers can work on the same code base at the same time. We utilize continuous integration development practices. Essentially, our development team integrates code into a shared repository several times a day. Each check-in is then verified by an automated build system which allows us to detect problems early.
All of this helps create efficiencies we can pass on to you.
