Building Mobile Apps with Artificial Intelligence
A 7-Step Process for Success
If you’re reading this, you’re probably interested to know how Nordstone is able to consistently design, build and scale successful mobile apps which use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and that generate significant revenue, have viral growth of users and solve real user problems.
As technology advances, mobile apps are becoming more and more sophisticated, and one of the most powerful tools at our disposal is Artificial Intelligence (AI). At Nordstone, we are a mobile app development company based in London that specialises in creating custom mobile apps that incorporate the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be incredibly powerful when used in mobile apps, enabling features such as natural language processing, image recognition, and machine learning. These capabilities can lead to higher engagement, more efficient user experiences, and even the ability to predict user behaviour.
That’s why we have developed a unique 7-step process for building mobile apps with Artificial Intelligence (AI) that has helped us create 100s of successful and high-quality products for innovators like you. Our process is designed to ensure that we deliver a product that meets your goals and objectives, whether it be increasing revenue, attracting more users, or improving your product or service.
Step 1: Visioning
The first step in our process is visioning, where we work closely with you to first understand the fundamental problem that your product solves. We then zoom out and outline the dream outcome, your goals and objectives that you hope to achieve with the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This step is crucial as it helps us align our focus with your desired outcomes, whether it be revenue, viral growth, product-market-fit, or a combination of goals. We then zoom in, and will ask specific questions to understand your business needs, target audience and their pain points to help us create a clear vision for your app.
Step 2: Scoping
Once the vision has been established, we move on to scoping, where we define the scope of the project and create a detailed plan for its development. This includes identifying the features and functionality that will be included in your app, as well as the complexity and timeline needed to bring it to fruition. We will work together to identify the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) features that are essential for your app, and make sure that the project scope is aligned with your vision.
Step 3: Designing
Designing is the next step in our process, where we bring your app to life through visual and user experience design. We create low-fidelity and high-fidelity designs to give you a clear understanding of how the app will look, feel and function. It’s essential to have a great user experience, so we will work closely with you to create an intuitive and user-friendly design that will engage your target audience whilst ensuring your app solves your user’s problems in the most efficient way (e.g. least number of clicks).
Step 4: Development
After the design phase, we move on to development, where we bring your app to life using the latest coding and programming principles. We build the backend infrastructure, integrate APIs, and create the user interface and user experience for you. We use a 2-week agile sprint methodology (the same method used at some of the most successful app companies e.g. Airbnb, Snapchat, Instagram, Uber etc.) to ensure the code is clean, documented and modular. This will ensure that your product is built using the latest standards and is therefore robust, scalable, and secure for the long run. You will be able to start using the app from the very early stages of development and receive updates directly to your device as the build progresses.
Step 5: Testing
Whilst the app is in development, in parallel we perform thorough testing (QA), where we rigorously test your app to ensure that it meets the highest standards of quality and performance. This includes functional testing, usability testing, and compatibility testing across a range of devices and operating systems. This is to ensure your completed product is highly refined and incorporates early user feedback before launching publicly.
Step 6: Launching
After the app is developed, we move on to launching, where we submit it to the relevant app stores and make it available for download. This is an exciting step for you as it marks the official launch of your app and the beginning of its journey in the market. We will also help you with preparing for launch, such as ensuring your app listing is well-designed on the Apple App Store and/or Google Play Store through effective use of App Store Optimisation (ASO).
Step 7: Iterating
Once launched, we move on to iterating towards Product Market Fit, where we continuously monitor the app’s performance and gather feedback from users to make ongoing improvements and updates. This step is important as it helps us to continuously improve the app and ensure that it stays relevant and useful for you and your users. We will use analytics and other tools to gather data and feedback, and use them to make data-driven decisions for improvements and new features.
