Crafting optimal work plan

With a clear goal and within your budget, the Solution Architects Team crafts a realistic plan to deliver a product meeting the goal.

The team starts with defining the world-class agile product team setup - roles, competencies, and the number of experts required to build the right product.

Then, the Solution Architects Team builds an initial 1 Product Roadmap explaining what specific value the Solution Architects Team will work on in a given timeframe to reach the product goal.

Based on that 1 Product Roadmap, you are provided with the cost simulation of delivering an end-to-end solution ready to launch. You also get informed upfront about all the essential assumptions and potential risks you might encounter.

👉 Results: Product Roadmap, Cost-simulation, Risks list

A Product Roadmap is a tool to simply and clearly visualize how development is going vs the goal, deadline and budget.

What advantages a Product Roadmap offers:

  • Gives a clear vision of the product development plan focused around the product goal
  • Provides a visualization of the current progress (work, time, and budget)
    • a reliable budget control tool
    • allows to easily check if we are on track
    • informs what's ahead before launching the actual product
    • takes into consideration the available capacity of the development team
  • Provides clear communication within the team and with stakeholders
  • Helps in setting sprint goals

Customers are delighted with the value Product Roadmaps offer:

  • "We were able to better estimate launch dates and plan better for each sprint and also think more critically when it comes to the features for the mvp"
  • "We were able to see what is coming next, and everyone was aligned"

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most important phases in mobile app development you should know before jumping on the mobile bandwagon.

Phase 1: Discovery

During this phase, you must strategize and define the experience your mobile app will deliver to its users. Who is the target audience? What problem will the mobile app solve? An important deliverable of this phase is a solid product roadmap and a detailed technical requirements document. A 3-day Product Design Workshop can help you to go through this phase successfully.

Phase 2: Mobile app development

The development team writes the code and realizes your mobile app idea. The duration of this phase will depend on the number of features and the overall complexity. Note that testing will take place during the development phase as well.

Once your mobile app has been developed and approved by the app store, it’s time for the launch!

Phase 3: Maintenance, support, and further development

Once your mobile app is downloaded and used by real users, it’s worth listening closely to their feedback. This will help you determine which features should be built next or what to change in your product to deliver an even better experience.

Read about how to build a mobile app step by step to understand the process deeply.

There are 7 crucial stages of the mobile app development process from a business point of view:

  1. Clarifying the vision
  2. Choosing a partner
  3. Wireframes & Design
  4. Project Kick-off & Setup
  5. App development
  6. Release Preparation
  7. App Maintenance

Read more about every stage in our guide through the mobile app development process.

In our experience, the best way to talk about the cost of mobile app development is by thinking about it in terms of complexity. And so:

  • Basic applications cost around $29,500. Such apps take the development team from 71 to 100 man days of work (development + QA).
  • Medium-complexity applications cost around $29,500-$50,500. This kind of app includes more sophisticated features like customer-facing server applications. Building such a mobile application will take the team around 100 to 170 man days.
  • Complex mobile applications cost more than $50,500. They require building a complicated architecture, and multiple integrations or meeting high-security demands cost even more. They take more than 1,200 hours to complete. This rough estimate can serve as your starting point in understanding how much it really costs to develop a mobile app.

Yes, you are the owner of Intellectual Property rights at all times.

We are usually ready to start development within 3-6 weeks. Contact us to find out when we can start working on your mobile app.

Yes, we always sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning before we discuss your project’s details or at another stage of the process – it’s up to you.

Yes, we also do maintenance. Mobile app development is just a start. During the app maintenance, the development team implements app monitoring tools (e.g. HockeyApp, Crashlytics, Google Analytics, Firebase) to every product we have created. Thanks to these tools, we can detect any crashes, follow the app’s statistics, and plan product enhancement.

We have experience working with clients worldwide, and we can cooperate effectively across multiple time zones.

  • During the kick-off meeting, we set the rules for our cooperation.
  • We agree upon meeting times that are comfortable for both sides.
  • We put our working hours to have a video call with you.
  • We communicate with you on Slack through a project-dedicated channel, where you can always see all the meaningful discussions about your product.

You work with us on a Time & Materials basis. The total cost of a T&M project depends on the actual effort made towards the development.

In this model, you pay for the time the team spends on developing specific tasks. You are in charge of the project’s scope and set priorities for the development team.

Why do we use the Time & Materials model? It ensures flexibility, and a shorter time-to-market, allowing for the Continuous Delivery of a software product. This approach provides a high-quality product – your mobile app will be tested at every stage of development.

Furthermore, you can flexibly set the direction of app development depending on the users’ feedback, market situation, or opportunities that arise during the development. Read more about Time & Materials vs Fixed Price.

We are a company of 70+ talented professionals: iOS developers, Android developers, Flutter developers, Backend developers, and Web developers.

However, our development team also consists of certified Scrum Masters, UX/UI designers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and Business Analyst.

With these experts on board, we are able to take the whole app development process off your shoulders, so you can focus on the business.

Yes. The code we create is very readable and well -documented, which makes it easy to transfer the project to another team if needed.

A standard team consists of a Product Owner (on your side), Scrum Master, Quality Assurance specialists, UX/UI Designers, and Developers. The size of the team depends on your deadlines and the complexity of your project.

Yes, of course. Every week you get:

  • An app demo build (so you can check if the created app fits your expectations)
  • A detailed review of what’s been done
  • Information about eventual difficulties or additional work that has been done
  • Information about how many hours the team worked on the project during the Sprint

According to your preferences, you can participate in the Review meeting or just get the information mentioned above with an E-mail.

What’s more, we use these good practices to ensure 100% transparency:

  • You have direct contact with every team member – through Slack, e-mail, video call, during Scrum meetings, or even live.
  • PO Guidance – as a Product Owner, you will be supported in your role. We will introduce you to the necessary tools to help you to monitor the budget and maximize the value delivered by the development team.
  • Jira Dashboard – the team will provide you with a presentation of the most critical data about the project on transparent charts.
  • Tempo Timesheet – it is a Jira tracking tool. At any moment, you can check what the team is spending time on.
  • Forecast & Change Management – we forecast the project budget, support you in monitoring, and predict potential risks, so they can be prevented.
  • Dropbox / Google – You can access all materials collected in one place.

Yes, of course. We will upload your Android application to the Google Play Store and your iOS app to Apple Store. It is also a part of our app development process. We will also guide you through the app setup on the stores regarding the marketing materials, description, and legacy issues.

We invite you to cooperate with us in the form of app maintenance. This option gives you confidence that the team is always available when your project needs us.

If you do not decide on maintenance, you can contact us with a specific need, but whether we can help at the moment depends on the current booking of the team.

Yes. When we finish mobile app development, we will support you in publishing your mobile app on the Google Play Store and Apple Store. Then, we offer you app maintenance services.

Multi-platform app development is the process of creating software applications that can run on multiple platforms, such as desktop computers, smartphones, tablets, or web browsers, using a single codebase. The goal of multi-platform app development is to reduce development costs, save time, and increase the reach of the application by allowing it to run on various devices and platforms.

There are several approaches to multi-platform app development, including:

  1. Cross-platform development: This approach involves creating a single codebase that can run on multiple platforms using tools and frameworks such as React Native, Xamarin, or Flutter. The code is written once, and then compiled or interpreted for each platform.
  2. Hybrid development: This approach involves using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to develop an app that runs on multiple platforms by embedding it in a native container. Tools such as Apache Cordova, PhoneGap, or Ionic can be used to facilitate this approach.
  3. Progressive Web Apps (PWAs): PWAs are web applications that use modern web technologies to provide a native-like experience to users. PWAs can be accessed through a web browser on any device, but they can also be installed on a device’s home screen and run like a native app.

Multi-platform app development has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people use multiple devices and platforms. It allows developers to reach a broader audience with their applications while also reducing development costs and time.

Such apps are built for a single mobile Operating System – mainly for Android or iOS.

They are downloaded and installed via an app store and have access to the system resources, such as GPS and the camera function. Native mobile apps live and run on the device itself. Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Instagram and Google Maps are examples of popular mobile apps.

Yes, those two phrases share the same meaning. A software house/app development agency is a company that develops software products. Software house has specialists, know-how and proven processes allowing them to develop software faster than internal teams.

80% of our staff are full-time employees. In addition, to best meet the needs of our customers, we hand-pick 20% of our developers from our partners.

Yes, our headquarters and most experts are from Wroclaw, Poland. Poland is a part of the European Union and a member of NATO. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we all worked from one office. The changes caused by the pandemic made us open to hiring people from all over Poland.
Wroclaw is one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world. Its location enables fast and convenient access from any city in the world.
