Native Mobile Apps

Maybe your app idea is something that needs to be built completely from the ground up. Our Custom App process is perfect for you and your needs. Based upon your prototype/wireframe, our design team will develop visual mockups and a workflow document detailing integrations, content collected, and the handling of information for every page.

We will keep you informed every step of the way, creating the app of your dreams in a transparent and effective way. When it’s time to launch, you can rest easy knowing the development has been just the way you wanted and the app is even better than you envisioned.

The App Development Process

Mobile App Consultation

Every Mobile App starts off with a consultation to verify that your idea for an app creates value for consumers, that your idea is possible to be made into an app, that your app will provide continued value so people will keep using it over and over, and most importantly, that your app can generate revenue or cut costs. We want to ensure that customers getting apps thoroughly understand who they are developing it for, what the main purpose of the app is, how the app will accomplish fulfilling the need for the main purpose, and that you have a plan to generate a Return On Investment from the app.

Prototype & Wireframe

A prototype is essentially like the blueprints for a house. We have to know everything about the design, capabilities, integrations, and functionality of the app. We go through a four-hour design session meeting with you to gather all of this information. We then mock up a digital prototype that shows you exactly what the app is going to look like. Accompanying the prototype is a workflow document, that goes page by page through the prototype, documenting every single detail of the functionality of the app. Once we have an approved app prototype we quote for the development of the app. If you don’t already have a prototype, this is where the app process starts for you.

App Development

Now that we have an App Prototype done, we begin coding the app. The development of most native apps is a three-to-six-month process, depending on the size and complexity of the app. We do a review when the design is coded to verify it matches the prototype and another review when the app is finished. After the initial build of the app and a private internal review with you, we begin testing.

Alpha & Beta testing are each 2-week periods, where you will choose up to 5-20 people to go through and test every feature of the app. We’re trying to break the app or find functionality that doesn’t work so that we can ensure your app is without flaws when we release it in the Apple & Android stores.

Mobile App Case Studies

Getting a mobile app built by Stingray Branding can revolutionize your organization. Check out these examples!

TRIDENT TECH - AUTOMATING APPRENTICESHIPS

Partnering with Trident Technical College, we launched the My Apprentice app. This app is a pinnacle piece of the apprenticeship program from Trident Tech. Prior to the app, employers, apprentices, and administrators had to log all of their notes, hours, and training manually using an honor system to verify it. With the My Apprentice app, all of the information that they need to successfully run the program is now collected automatically. 

WINGIVE- COMBINING LOVE OF SPORTS AND FUNDRAISING

WinGive is a new concept that combines the passion for sports with the love of charities. We helped Scott build the entire concept into an app with a management system, automation, notifications, and more. After launching his app and brand, we helped him to promote the app, develop influencer marketing, and grow app usage. 

KERSHAW COUNTY- TAKING GOVERNMENT ONLINE

Some apps are simple, but they can provide a large impact. This is the case for Kershaw County. We built a new app for their leadership and council meetings to allow them to easily access their meeting minutes, to do’s, and to communicate. 

NORTH CHARLESTON CHAMBER - PUTTING MEMBERSHIP IN YOUR HANDS

Membership-based organizations often have a lot of events, programs, and information that their members and followers need to quickly access. Our membership app for the North Charleston Chamber helps followers to see upcoming events, helps members to connect with each other, and keeps members plugged into changes and information about the organization.

Mobile App Maintenance

 

Every native app should have ongoing maintenance. Apps are very complex, with numerous integrations, connections, and thousands of lines of code. That code evolves every day as well as the operating systems that the apps work on.

At a minimum, EVERY app should be rebuilt and re-submitted at least once a year to allow the coding to update and to check for coding glitches when the new operating systems are released from Apple and Android. We offer this service to anyone that has a native app. Many times, having this annual update will resolve many glitches, bugs, and crashes if your app is experiencing that.

We also offer ongoing monthly maintenance plans and recommend for anyone with a native mobile app to purchase it. Apps often have random bugs that develop, have new features that you want to add, or just need basic upkeep on the database and code for the app. We offer a 5 hour and a 10 hour a month package to help cover these different situations. Custom plans are also advanced for apps that have a lot of usage and demands.

Mobile App Financing

 

Mobile App Development is expensive. We know it. Unfortunately, we already charge the lowest rates we can to our clients, but with most apps taking 300-600 hours to build, the rates can only be adjusted so much.

However, we are happy to offer our clients that want to get an app built in-house financing to help you.
We finance apps on a:

  • 6-month payment plan
  • 12-month payment plan
  • or a 24-month payment plan.

If you are interested in learning more about financing your new mobile app, let us know during the discovery process and we can answer your questions about it and ensure it is included in your development proposal.
