Web Application Development
What is a Web Application?
- a client-server computer program which the client (including the user interface and client side-logic) runs in a web browser

What are the benefits of Web Applications?
Mobile web app development can be employed to build a web application that operates as if it were a native mobile app. If you’re in the tech industry, you’ve likely heard the term PWA (Progressive Web Application). PWAs are web applications that are able to be saved to individual mobile devices and can interact with the hardware of a device. When speaking in terms of custom application development, PWAs are a means to get the most bang for your buck as they cost less than mobile applications while still providing a similar user experience. PWAs also use less data than mobile apps and are quick to load.

Our Web Application Development Process
Outlining the functionalities and technical requirements for your product, our Architect drafts a specification document that illustrates all functions required for your custom software to work as designed. This document describes user behaviors relating to each feature of your application and will serve as the development team’s point of reference for product functionality and features.
Our team scopes out the entirety of your product architecture based on core functionalities, systems integrations, designs, and user flows. The document produced during this step provides recommendations on the custom web development frameworks, services, and programming languages that will make up the architecture of your entire web application.
Our web app developers build out 60% of your product backlog and leave 40% to be determined after development has begun. By building a sequential yet agile product backlog, our development team is able to plan for building your app function-by-function while also accounting for the unexpected.
Adhering to our checklists of custom web app development best practices, our team engineers your backend and front-end features until each function is ready for testing. While a subset of our developers implements the architecture and frameworks of your application, the rest build out your app's database structure and craft web modules, libraries, and classes. Once complete, the user interface of your web application is developed.
At this stage, your MVP (Minimum Viable Product) has now been built. After launching your MVP to the public, we continue implementing features outside of your MVP scope and regularly produce demonstrable iterations to review with you. This approach keeps you informed throughout the development process and assures your web app is developed to your product vision and goals.
Piecing together your Visual Designs and User Journey Mapping, we create an interactive prototype that is handed off to you and your team to interact with. During this final stage of our UX design services, you’re able to test out your product before it is developed to ensure that it has been drafted as intended and functions to your liking.
