Mobile App Design and Development

Mobile app design process

For mobile applications, user experience is key, and UX is our primary focus in the app development process. However, for a new-to-market application, there are several steps that come before this.

Chief among this is finding product-market fit – and working with you to determine the right product specifications to take to market and the business strategy that adjoins this is a key part of our process. Our app design agency has experience across a wide range of industries and understand your need for a truly custom solution – but we aren’t afraid to tell you if your idea needs work before it’s market-ready. We employ a full-cycle DevOps strategy from analysis and design to development and launch. Once launched, we then work with you on ASO, CRO, and ongoing development and optimisation.

How much does it cost to develop an app?

As an app design agency, we develop tailor-made apps to your specifications. This means that the cost of mobile app development is dependent on what features you want to see in the finished product.

New-to-market applications require a number of steps before making it just right for your needs. So you’ll need to consider the app’s compatibility, complexity, and whether it will need support for future updates and extensions.

Where should you start with mobile app design?

With a seemingly endless amount of apps available to download, successful mobile app design depends on creating an app that sets you apart from the competition. Market research is therefore a crucial first step for any app development. Following that, you can focus on creating an app with easy navigation, intuitive simplicity, and attractive interfaces.

The easiest way to design a mobile app is to use a mobile app design agency like Crucible. With our expertise, we’ll help with every step of the app development process.

Digital Products

Digital Products can vary dramatically in their complexity, but it’s their functionality that typically sets them apart from websites: the use of them isn’t just a means to an end, it’s the experience the user is buying into. With years of experience designing complex platforms, we apply a product mindset to the designing of beautiful, bespoke digital products and platforms.
