Mobile Application Development for Startups

Desarrollo de aplicaciones móviles para startups

Mobile applications have become a fundamental tool for startups looking to improve their online presence and reach new customers. However, creating a successful solution is not an easy task and requires a careful process that takes into account resource optimization, time management, and project scalability.

At The App Master, we specialize in developing applications for startups and adopting a working methodology that prioritizes the needs of the client. We understand that time and resources are valuable in these types of projects, so we focus on providing fast but scalable solutions.

For this reason, in this article, we will share the key steps to make the process of ideation, design, and development as efficient as possible:

Step 1: Identify the purpose of the tool

The first step is to identify the need that the application will fulfill. It is important to guide the teams that come to us to shape and give meaning to their ideas. Therefore, they must have clear answers to these questions: What problem does their application solve? What competitive advantage do they have compared to others? This way, we start thinking about the functionalities that the application will have.

Step 2: Map and design

Functional design is a process that must be carefully planned. The most important thing is to work together with the design and development team to define the main characteristics of the application, the functions it will offer, the user experience that is desired, the interface design, and the information architecture. At this point, the first Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and its scope are also defined.

Step 3: Define the operating system

Once the application’s functions have been defined, it is time to choose the appropriate platform for its development. At TAM, we work with the main mobile application operating systems, such as iOS and Android, to offer startups the solution that best suits their needs and budget.

Step 4: Design and develop the application

Before starting development, it is important to carefully review the prototypes that the design team has built to verify that the functions, flows, and interface align with the business objectives. This process should be iterative, meaning that tests and adjustments must be made until the final version is achieved. The goal is to reach the next stage with the least possible margin of error.

Once the final prototype is approved, the development of the application begins. This is a complex stage, so it is necessary to have a team with the skills to faithfully comply with what was approved in the layout and design phase.

Step 5: Continuous improvement

The deployment of a mobile application is not the end of the process but the beginning of a new stage in which updates and continuous improvements must be made. Therefore, it is crucial for the application to be scalable and easy to update so that improvements can be ongoing.

The development process must ensure that the company obtains a high-quality application that is user-friendly, fast, secure, and up-to-date. For this reason, it is essential to choose a software factory that works in an organized and agile manner, prioritizing the needs and resources of the company for whom the project is intended.

Currently, there are different working modalities that can be adapted according to the project requirements. In this sense, startups can choose to work through staff augmentation, hiring temporary staff with specific skills to carry out the project, or opt for team augmentation by subcontracting an entire team to develop the tool.
