Local custom mobile application development.

Dapth is a 100% fully in-house mobile application development company. We never outsource.

The extreme levels of mobile device saturation and distribution of internet connectivity has created a mobile first digital world. Users expect to be able to move, and for their digital experience to move with them. The dilemma in getting a custom mobile app developed is which marketplace and technology is best suited for your mobile application, Apple or Android. The decision can exclude a large portion of your customers building an iOS application excludes Android users, and building for both doubles your cost, so where do you start? Cloud-based digital experiences and services can be catered to via web applications, simply put can the requirements be met through web browser – this removes the boundary of device type – if it has access to the internet they can access your digital tool. We navigate the decision making process by first starting with building a prototype that allows the concept to look and feel real, after that we discuss the best technology to build your mobile application.

“Mobile applications can enable a faster more tailored user experience, being able to work when a user is online and offline. The modern world has now changed the playing field, mobile apps require a user to action updates, but most users now have access to the internet 24/7 and web applications update themselves instantaneously. The best choice then comes down to choosing the path that aligns to your goals, roadmap AND budget.”

Phil Allen – Director at Dapth

The cost of your mobile application depends on how extensive the service you require is, typically the cost of the application should include the preparation required such as prototyping and testing, however the maturity of your idea, business or current application can influence the amount of work required before ‘build’. Equally the cost your concept can changes whether you want your app build using a specific technology platform, offered on a specific marketplace or have other feature specific requirements.

Mobile applications can enable a faster more tailored user experience, being able to work when a user is online and offline. The modern world has now changed the playing field, mobile apps require a user to action updates, but most users now have access to the internet 24/7 and web applications update themselves instantaneously. The best choice then comes down to choosing the path that aligns to your goals, roadmap AND budget. We can achieve a lot with both, but we will never start building a mobile application until the right process has been undertaken to confirm and validate your direction of your mobile app development.

This is the full end-to-end process for creating a mobile application. Mobile software applications are created to offer a digital service via a mobile device, whether that’s a phone, watch, tablet or computer. The term covers concept articulation, feature mapping, user journeys, prototyping, development scope, technology alignment, development, testing, training and launch. Mobile app development often is confused for just the physical coding of the application, which is only a portion of what it covers. Unfortunately, too many development companies are quick to quote and build, and in part fall short of delivering the full mobile application development service required for a meaningful app that achieves maximum market penetration and user uptake. 

Looking for a website developer?

We have proven it with websites of all sizes, a correctly developed website performs[NA1] . The term ‘clean code’ should be discussed more, when you outsource or rely on plugin heavy websites to showcase those ‘features’ you get a confusing and jumbled mix of a website that limps to the finish line. Sure the easy comment is to point to plugins make your website slow, and potentially exposing you to data to breaches[NA2] . But the really issue with outsourcing is the implementation of code, how difficult it is for another developer to take over the project, and the lack of control of who has access to your site, your user data and your intellectual property. We start the conversation at understanding your pain points that lead you to us talking about your website development, then work to clearly articulate your long-term goals, how you would scale up your business, are you looking to do SEO or SEM (or even know what they mean). Then we can clearly advise a direction, plus a cost linked to it. Put simply, anyone who gives you a price for a website without first doing a discovery process is about as helpful as a mechanic who tells you the cost to service a car without first checking what model you have and why you were ringing in the first place. We have worked with sole traders with a limited budget, mining companies, local councils, and not for profits. We challenge you to challenge us with your website development project.
