Working in short iterations, we’ll quickly deliver working software you can test and refine, giving you constant visibility of progress and risk.
We’ll guide you through each step along the way, making sure we deliver the solution that is right for you and your customers, creating a digital relationship that delivers value for years to come.
Once you start digging into the world of mobile app development, it’s clear there are lots of options. We can help you pick the right approach.
Native mobile apps are built for a specific mobile device operating system. That means iOS for Apple devices or Android for the rest. Hybrid apps are built to work on both Apple and Android devices, using cross-platform frameworks like Ionic or Flutter.
Native apps used to have a performance edge but Flutter has closed that gap.
It’s much cheaper and faster to develop one hybrid app than it is to develop two separate Android and iOS apps. As a result, hybrid apps are the best way to go in most situations.
Where mobile apps are installed on the device, progressive web applications run in the browser.
A progressive web application works well if you want people to be able to use your app on both mobile and desktop. Maybe some of your customers prefer desktop to mobile, or maybe you want an admin tool so your team can update content in the app themselves.
Progressive web applications are also quicker to get up and running because there’s no waiting for app store approval; users can just download the app from your website.
On the other hand, mobile apps offer:
Maybe you don’t even need a mobile app. If your customers are going to be viewing content more than completing tasks, then a responsive website optimised for mobile might be a better bet.
You may also need an API to integrate your app with the rest of your digital services, so you can keep the data and experience consistent, or to give you access to a separate admin interface.
Boost are globally-recognised experts in Agile development. We’ve spent 14 years testing and improving our Agile tools and processes, applying what we learned in our projects and our popular resources.
We kick off your project with a free discovery workshop. This creates a clear understanding of the outcomes needed to create a lasting connection with your customers.
Customised to your specific project, this workshop lets you:
Working with Boost, you become part of the development team. Together you deliver the project in prioritised stages. This lets you check and make changes to working software, ensuring you get just what you need.
Because you’re part of the team, you always have a clear view of progress. You have continuous visibility on work completed and remaining, budget spent and left, bugs found and fixed, and obstacles identified and resolved. And, importantly, you get to check how well your app is meeting customer needs through user testing and reviews. This makes it easy to identify and mitigate any risk that your project will miss the mark.
Our mobile app design process cuts the cost of getting it right.
Our designers and developers work closely with you to build lo-fi working wireframes. These are regularly user tested. Once the bulk of the features are in place we complete a whole-of-app UX review. Together, the UX review and user testing guide our graphic design phase. Here we create a compelling user experience that enhances your customers’ connection with your brand.
By not reworking hi-fi designs while we’re refining usability, we save you time and money.
Your project will be supported by a dedicated Agile coach and we’ll give you free Agile training. As the only Wellington mobile app development company offering ICAgile and PMI-certified Agile training, we’re able to ensure you get the most from the process.
Boost’s award-winning culture means you work with a team who love helping clients have a bigger impact.
We won the Team Gold Award for the way we’ve built a top-performing team aligned behind a common purpose: Supporting others to create a positive and lasting impact. We’re also the only Wellington mobile application development company certified as a freedom-centred workplace.
This means the Boost team only chooses projects that achieve our purpose. As a result, you’re working with mobile app designers and developers who are passionate about your project, pro-actively working to give you the best possible outcomes.
