Our iOS App Development Process

Foundation Sprint

Our comprehensive Discovery process turns business objectives, user profiles, and commercial models into functional specifications and prototypes. We use this information to define success metrics and target users, alongside guiding both technical and product decisions. This ensures your iOS app is built on solid foundations.

Solution Sprint

The Solution Sprint is where we work out the details of the product: What does it look like, how does it make your users’ lives easier, and who are the stakeholders that should be involved in working on this solution. Once we have mapped out your users, their problems and the high-level concept for your product, we will use this sprint to build process maps, clickable wireframes and refine your product backlog.

Delivery Sprint

Building products users love is an iterative process. Delivery is where we move onto the ongoing delivery of the product, working in 2-week sprints to deliver against the agreed initial priority items within the backlog. Following dual-track Agile principles, the product team will continue to refine the product and backlog as the delivery of the solution begins. This allows us to consistently incorporate user and stakeholder feedback to continuously evolve your product for the better.

Deployment Sprint

Stable. Seamless. Secure. These three things are essential when it comes to deploying software and applications. The Deployment Sprint is where we coordinate a release across several teams and systems and ensure that it is successful. The goal of the deployment sprint is to ensure that we can run the correct processes across development, staging and production environments with an agreed handover process. This ensures that we’re deploying secure code and have a tightly controlled rollout.
