we are passionate software professionals put on this earth to make better mobile software

PROCESS

We like to think of ourselves as a product management team for hire. We can take a recently hatched idea, run through a requirements gathering phase, UX development and rapidly design and develop a full-fledged application. We bring our deep product management experience to every project.

We believe that application development should be fast and iterative. We put a prototype in your hands as soon as possible and iterate based on your feedback.

AUDIENCE

We start with the audience... the users. Who is going to comprise the primary user base for your application? We create several user personas that represent the range of typical users.
User Stories

STORIES

Once we know who the users are, we create stories around the common use scenarios - what the user needs to be able to do with the app and why. Each story helps elucidate the bigger picture of what the application does.

EXPERIENCE

Once we know who the users are and what they want to do, we sketch the flow of the application. We do this using wireframes - simple sketches of each screen and its primary functions. What you get is a clear, visual representation of how the application works prior to any code being written.

DESIGN

Then we design custom graphics and user interfaces based on your preferences to give the app pop. Now, its starting to really take shape and we are ready for implementation.

DEVELOPMENT

After the requirements and design phases, we get down to business and start cranking out beautiful code. By knowing most of the requirements up front, we can quickly develop a prototype that you can start playing with. After a few cycles of feedback and product iteration you have what you want... and what your users need.
