A life-long partnership
We're here for you, from idea to version 1.0 and beyond.
At the beginning of our engagement, we'll have discussions with you to clarify the problem that's being solved, and to nail down the goals of your business. We can then help you prioritise which features should be included in the first version of the software.
Once our team has a good understanding of your requirements, a designer and engineer will work collaboratively to craft the ‘look and feel’ and the user experience for your app. A wireframe will be produced for you to review, to make sure we're on the same page.
While we're designing what your users will see, we'll also be considering the technical implications and developing a data model. The data model maps out the types of information the app will need to store or display, and the relationships between these data elements.
Although a lot of design work occurs at the beginning of a project, we consider design every step of the way.
Often, building your software actually means developing multiple pieces of software, which might include:
- An iOS app, for delivery to Apple iPhones or iPads
- An Android app, for delivery to phones and tablets that use Google's Android operating system
- A web app that you can access and use from any web browser
- A cloud service or backend, which allows the other components to communicate, store and synchronise data
The code we write is always stored in a source control repository, which allows us to track down bugs, carefully merge changes by multiple engineers, and version each release of your app.
Testing of your app happens on many levels. We perform internal testing throughout development by:
- testing individual features to make sure they perform correctly, even in unlikely situations.
- looking for potential security vulnerabilities and privacy issues.
- pre-emptively screening for anything that might cause Apple or Google to reject the app.
- using profiling tools to analyse code and track down performance problems.
When your app starts to take shape, we will help you register your devices to receive test builds. Once registered, you can automatically receive new beta versions of the app every time we make one available. During this testing, any crashes you experience are reported to us automatically. You will also be able to request design tweaks and report any bugs that you want us to address.
If you've commissioned a mobile app, in most cases you'll want to distribute it through the Apple App Store (for iOS users) and the Google Play Store (for Android users). We assist with this by:
- Helping you or your company register as an app publisher.
- Entering metadata.
- Producing essential marketing material such as screenshots.
- Compiling and submitting the finished app to each store.
When the app is ready to go live, we can help you to:
- Deploy your web app or backend to reliable cloud hosting.
- Publish support resources.
- Set up smart marketing URLs, that redirect to the correct store based on the type of device being used.
- Create QR codes and download buttons.
- Publish Smart App Banners to your website.
Our commitment to your app continues long after the first version goes live.
Trust the company that built your applications to deploy, monitor and scale them in the cloud.
With managed application hosting, Codeacious takes charge of provisioning server capacity, configuring domain names, load balancing, redundancy and backups.
We manage your application using our own custom-built container management tools and operate server infrastructure on top of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform.
We also fix any bugs that your users may uncover and we release any updates that are required for compatibility with the latest devices and operating systems.
