The best mobile apps give users access to all the benefits of your product wherever they go.

How UpShift will build your app

Brief

Once you get in touch with us, we’ll work alongside you to deliver a brief that clearly outlines what you’re after from mobile experience, including the functionality it needs to offer and design requirements.

Scope

Following the brief we’re able to scope the project efficiently. We’ll outline the costings, timings and specifications around delivery as part of this project.

Architecture

How your mobile app will hang together is critical to establish prior to any visual design or development. We’ll build out a structure that allows your team to see how the mobile app is going to be structured and interacted with, including the hierarchy of content and on-screen information architecture.

Design

Drawing upon the architecture, our design team will create a mobile app design that applies your brand language to a layout and appearance designed for ease of use within a smartphone or tablet screen size. We build high-fidelity prototypes that provide a clear idea of what the end user will see.

Develop

With structure and appearance confirmed, we can then set about building the mobile app itself, drawing upon our skills and experience in efficient, robust coding practices.

Test

Testing is more than just finding and fixing bugs (although we do that). It’s about getting real people interacting with your product with a fresh set of eyes and no existing biases. Part of our process is to ensure the app works for your target audience, and not just your team or ours.

Deploy

With the mobile app created and approved, we’ll support your team to deploy and host this via the most appropriate server solution. We can also assist you with pushing your new app onto the Google Play store and iOS App Store.

Maintain

As with any digital product, ongoing refinement and support will be required to deliver the best for your users. We engage our clients long after product delivery, upgrading and adding features as needed.
