Stages of app development process
SmartWatch app development undergoes a complete production circle: from the project idea to its startup. We use several methodologies which help to produce desirable applications.
We analyse demands and behaviour of the audience: we present details of entry requirements and business processes, we interview potential users and study competitors and the market.
Preparation of the use cases
We create mind-map of the app, write use cases and make prototypes. At the design stage we test product hypotheses by conducting customer survey. We estimate the product perception, find errors in the procession logic for the screen layouts and improve the content presentation.
When a SmartWatch app design is being created, we focus on the conditions under which SmartWatches are used. The apple iwatch and android wear offers unique functional capacities such as rapid access to the customers and inbuilt sensors. The watch is a small screen used when on the move. No matter if a user is in a taxi, at work or is jogging, he gets a simple interface which doesn’t require long concentration.
Flexible development based on SCRUM
The work is performed on the basis of the Agile framework SCRUM. The iteration development allows you to control the work of the team getting results after each sprint.
Using manual testing, we do auto tests and conduct load testing. Every element of the system is verified: from the interface to the server app. Everything should work fast and withstand high loads.
Startup and publishing
Having passed testing, the app for SmartWatch is published on the application store.
The result of this stage is a developed watch application which works for your business.
