App Development

What is needed for mobile application development? Everything starts with an idea. Whether it’s a next social media platform, a telemedicine solution, an internal application for your team or something completely different – you need to have at least one sentence that can describe what you have in mind. If you can deliver a more detailed plan, that’s great! But if not, don’t worry. We are here for you and we will use our expertise to help you expand all the aspects of your idea into a real, tangible project.

Digital Product Design

What’s so unique about our approach is that we accompany our clients through the whole app development process. After you contact us, we organize UX and UI Workshops which is usually a 2-day meeting where we focus on perfecting your idea, finding key features, determining crucial details and preparing a plan for the next steps. At itCraft, we believe in collaboration between the product owner and development team – so we invite you to be an active participant in the process if you want to.

Throughout the process of mobile app development, our team conducts research, collects feedback, tests modules and components and asks customers for feedback.

All that to determine if the project moves in the right direction. If not, we are flexible to change the plan and pursue new concepts. Ultimately, we want to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction and give your business a beneficial product that will become a part of your long-term strategy.

Why is mobile application development important?

Our world is constantly changing and evolving. The digital environment has become an integral part of our lives and a mobile device is our companion in many situations. Statistics don’t lie – people use smartphones more often because they are convenient and available in every place with an internet connection. Every year the number of users who move their e-commerce purchases, entertainment needs and everyday errands to mobile apps increases. There is an application for almost everything.

Missing an opportunity to join this trend would be a bummer. Why should you give  your users a mobile app for their Android and iOS devices?

  • The awareness of your brand will skyrocket
  • Your customers will love your brand even more
  • Their loyalty will grow if you solve their problems with your app
  • Another source of revenue and multiple monetization options
  • Reaching out to more potential clients
  • Possibility to expand in the future

Depending on the technology you use for your apps’ development, you can quickly enter the market with a product for various devices and operating systems. Afterwards, you will have a chance to introduce updates that can improve it even more. All you need is an experienced custom software application development company that will help you achieve your business goals – that’s us!

Custom app development

There are hundreds of premade software solutions and components that can be used to create a platform for your customers. Still, we recommend custom application development. Why? It might be more costly than using something out-of-the-box, but it provides such capabilities that no ready product ever will.

First of all, customization – which is evident regarding this approach. Having your own dedicated team that leads your app development from scratch, you can add the exact features you need. The aesthetics of your mobile applications can also be designed based on your brand identification and requirements. You also get technical support after the implementation. Everything can be done the way you and your customers are expecting.

Custom App Development

Android and iPhone App Development Services

Everyone knows that there are two competing mobile operating systems – iOS and Android. Which one should you dedicate your app to? The answer is usually both. The times when hitting just one market was enough are over. People want access to your mobile application no matter what their location is and what device they use. 

Is Android and iOS mobile app development complicated and costly? It can be, but we also know ways to optimize it. You can either choose native apps or cross-platform software. It all depends on your budget, project requirements and business goals.

Android Mobile App Development

Kotlin is a programming language used in native Android mobile development. When creating apps for this platform, you need to consider all the various devices from multiple companies. Because of this, the Android system can look and work slightly differently on each of them, which requires thorough testing before release. 

iOS Mobile App Development

Native iOS mobile applications are usually coded in a language called Swift. As you can probably guess, software development for Apple devices doesn’t require testing for miscellaneous hardware. Still, you need to consider factors typical for iOS, as it is an entirely different platform to Android.

Cross-platform Mobile Application Development

Using cross-platform technologies for mobile development is becoming more and more popular. The basics are simple. It allows us to create apps for iOS, Android and sometimes other mobile or web platforms with just one codebase. Languages used in this type of app development are Flutter, React Native or to a lesser extent these days, Xamarin. They use UX components to create a native-like feeling when using a mobile app. Cross-platform development is often used for tight budgets and short time-to-markets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything about Mobile Development

Mobile apps are becoming a core of business for many companies and startups. That’s because their potential clients are interested in mobile solutions and looking for convenient ways to fulfill their daily goals and needs. A great example is the e-commerce sector, where each year traffic moves from web to mobile applications. Some innovative services like telemedicine have moved entirely into the digital environment to offer people what they need no matter where they are.

Having a mobile application can also help your business cut costs of some operations and grow revenue by reaching new markets. If you still don’t have an app, we recommend researching your current pool of clients and finding out how you can solve their problems. Many times, this can be done with a mobile app.

It’s not that easy to answer that question. Everything depends on app requirements, your budget and required release date. Usually, you will need two mobile apps – for Android and iOS. Native apps are the most advanced software products, but then mobile app development takes more time. Also, having two separate teams can cause delays when one encounters more difficulties or takes longer to code a module. Still, native mobile apps deliver exquisite experience and can use hardware modules like GPS or camera to offer better features.

Cross-platform mobile app development, on the other hand, helps to save time and money, although it is not 50% cheaper as some people claim. It requires only one app developer team to create both apps and allows us to introduce changes simultaneously to Android and iOS versions. But it might be limited in some aspects.

The best way to decide which technology should be used in your project is to consult your app development needs and ask us for recommendations. We will be able to give you advice based on their previous experience.

There is no way to estimate the cost of software development without knowing the scope of the project. We can share our opinion on the budget you need to secure based on our finished projects, but we approach each client individually and the price always differs. What are the main factors that shape it? That would be:

  • The number of apps and other products you require
  • The advancement of functionalities you want us to develop
  • What you already have (e.g., is there a back-end or do we need to build everything from scratch?)
  • The technology you pick which can determine the size of the team
  • Do you need a whole dedicated team, or you have someone on your side and looking for a team extension?

And many more. You can find cost estimation examples in our “Pricing” tab, where we analyze a couple of factors that can influence the final cost.

Don’t settle for the first or the cheapest company you stumble upon! Hiring an app developer can be quite expensive, but a higher price usually indicates quality and professionalism. If you want to save some money, we recommend outsourcing one of the offshore development companies.

To find out if a company you want to hire as your app developer can be suitable for your business, you should start with online research. Check out their website and social media, browse portfolio and reviews. This will help you form the first impression and decide if you want to contact this particular software house.

Don’t hesitate to contact a company you are interested in. They will explain their offer and tell you more details about their work. If everything clicks – you have your mobile app development dream team!

We always suggest picking a Time and Materials payment model as it gives the product owner more flexibility and is perfect for Agile Scrum projects. 

In the Time and Materials model, the client only pays for the resources that the team will use to work on the mobile application. It’s the best option when we want to be able to change something mid-project, or we can’t predict how long it will last. Usually, it is based on an hourly rate that is calculated with multiple factors in mind.

Pick one that suits your project best or ask your software development company about both options and their cost.

It merely means hiring a mobile app development team from another location, usually from the country with lower hourly rates. Outsourcing the development of apps means you can save money because you don’t need to hire your own team. 

What’s worth mentioning is that outsourcing to Europe can be highly beneficial as we hire really skilled specialists. Saving money means you can employ a bigger team for faster results or invest in other areas of your business. We definitely recommend outsourcing and most of our clients work with us as their offshore team extension!

That depends. A web app or desktop app can complement your mobile app and allow your customers to access your products or services in many ways. It’s convenient and helps to raise brand awareness. You might also need sets of apps for different client groups – for example, in telemedicine, we often create a mobile app for patients and a separate web app for doctors.

A website, on the other hand, is a great promotional tool. You can use it for search engine optimization, so when people google your brand, they will find it. It is also a great way to conduct content marketing activities, like writing a blog. Your webpage will be perfect for displaying customer reviews and third party articles about your mobile app. If you feel like you need it, ask your software house about it.
