Why would someone want to choose WIA for app development?
Are there any key factors that make WIA stand out as an app development agency?
Most mobile app development companies offer off-the-shelf products that are pre-made and simply rebranded for new customers. WIA works directly with clients to create mobile apps from scratch so that clients have full control over the functionality they’d like to offer as well as the key design elements. We understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution, so custom development remains our #1 priority.
Clients who choose to develop websites and mobile apps with WIA may enjoy the benefit of having all of their business processes and data in one place with access across all platforms. Changes to web content will be immediately available to all devices and browsers.
The process of developing a mobile app is very similar to the process of developing a website, and in many ways the two processes are tied directly together. The main difference in the two processes is that with mobile app development, the layout of every screen and function typically happens before these screens are actually designed. Being that mobile apps are mainly used on smaller devices, this sequence ensures that all app features are included in a way that is not bound by design restrictions. This step of the process includes user-activity flowcharts and wireframes that are discussed in detail with clients to maintain confidence that the app will function 100% as expected.
After all screens and functionality are worked out, we begin the design process in which WIA team works directly with the clients to come up with a great looking mockup of how the mobile app will function. Key elements like finger-friendly interfaces and branding consistency are always at the forefront of this process. The initial wireframes are used as guides and all of the main screens will now be reviewed in a visible way.
Once all designs and functional specifications are agreed with, development begins. All mobile apps can either be directly tied to existing or new websites to utilize all functions including user registration, displaying database data, etc.
What phones have we developed for?
We develop for the most current versions of Android phones tablets and iOS, including iPhone and iPad.
Why would a client trust us to develop their mobile app?
Working with WIA is always a personal and confidential experience. Ideas are safeguarded by non-disclosures and we protect every aspect of the development life-cycle. By remaining close with the clients throughout the entire process, all mobile apps are personalized and consistent with existing websites and brands.
