The challenges in the mobile app development

​Mobile app development for startups has its own challenges to overcome. Here are 3 common examples of how we deal with them.

  • Multi-platform support

    Mobile apps do not have a single environmental target. Most mobile apps target multiple devices, dealing with various technical specs, OS versions, and form factors

  • Implementation of CI/CD

    Because of the strong business motivation to deliver mobile applications to market quickly, mobile app development projects typically have extremely aggressive timelines

  • Launching in app stores

    The app store adds an additional asynchronous step because the development team cannot deploy app updates on demand. Even for critical bug fixes, new app versions go through the submission and review process.

What technologies and tools do we use?


App frameworks Laravel NodeJS Express
Databases MySQL Redis MongoDB
Hosting AWS Vultr
Server Nginx


IOS Swift
Android Kotlin
Cross-platform React

UI/UX Design

Main tool Figma
Animation Principle
Prototyping Balsamiq

What do you get as a result of cooperation?

  • UX design
  • Project documentation
  • Your application

UX design

In applications, the users are primarily retained by design, its appearance, functionality, convenience, and simplicity.

Based on the market research of your app development product, UX design will allow you to develop the most efficient and cutting-edge interface.

Project documentation

Project documentation

Here you can get the document that regulates your business goals, and also:

The project documentation helps to answer the question of "what needs to be done?"
