What is Mobile Application Development?
Mobile application development is the creation of software that’s designed to run on mobile devices. Colloquially, many of our clients use the phrase ‘mobile application development’ to describe both standalone mobile apps and mobile versions of websites and web applications.
At Impekable, we design and build high-quality mobile applications that heavily focus on interaction to enrich the user experience. Because we’re an iPhone app development company and an Android app development company, we support several native mobile programming languages and frameworks, including:
- React Native
- React Android
- Native iOS
Why is Mobile Application Development Important?
It’s simple: users love mobile experiences.
In Q3 2022, users downloaded 27.1 billion apps from Google Play, according to Statista. In that same period, Apple’s App Store drove $21.2 billion U.S. dollars in consumer spending on apps.*
With consumers spending more and more time on their mobile devices each year, failing to meet them where they are with your own app can cause you to lose market share to more mobile-savvy competitors.
Our Mobile Application Development Process
To provide you with a great digital product, we utilize top-producing tools when building mobile apps. We collaborate with and incorporate the best existing resources when developing your mobile app to optimize your time and investment.
Our strong existing partnerships with Twilio, AWS, and others allow us to implement their products within your mobile app.
Identify Critical Requirements
Our work begins with initial conversations that identify who your users are and how your mobile app will support their needs. We’ll also explore your business model, existing tech stack, competitive landscape, and more.
Define the User Journey
Following this initial analysis, we’ll craft user experiences and user journeys that ensure your customers’ needs are met in a modern, intuitive way -- all while incorporating your feedback along the way.
Evaluate Build vs Buy
Based on how your users will interact with your app, whether you need to own the project’s IP, and other factors, we’ll advise you on which app features should be built vs which can be bought from existing leaders.
Create & Execute a Project Plan
All of this preliminary work culminates in the creation of a project roadmap that identifies key milestones, deliverables, and timelines that our leading mobile app developers follow to bring your app to life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
This question might catch you off guard. After all, doesn’t everyone need a mobile app these days?
What we’ve found -- and what we tell prospective clients -- is that bespoke mobile applications aren’t the right choice for every business. Take the difference between businesses like GreatClips and Uber.
Because Uber passengers might use the company’s services on a weekly basis -- even a daily basis -- developing a standalone app that can deliver an exceptionally streamlined user journey makes sense. On the other hand, with GreatClips, customers might only be booking haircuts once every six months. In that case, introducing a separate app may create unnecessary friction for users, compared to simply developing a mobile-optimized version of the company’s website.
Before entrusting your mobile application idea to just anyone, take the time to ensure you’ve chosen the right partner for your needs. One thing to evaluate is the technology used by prospective partners. Are they up-to-date on the most current languages used in mobile application development? For example, at Impekable, although we still work on React Native and Native iOS projects, we generally steer clients towards Flutter, which is more widely used right now.
It’s also important to get to know providers’ approach to mobile app project planning -- specifically, how they address the question of building vs buying. For instance, when clients come to Impekable with a mobile app idea that involves a customer database, we aren’t going to recommend building one from scratch when we can easily integrate solutions offered by providers like Hubspot to provide the same functionality at a much lower cost.
In addition to evaluating a company’s development approach, look for a partner that fits into your company’s culture and preferred workflows. Remember, building a new mobile application can be a major undertaking. Make sure you feel comfortable with the team members you’ll be working with and that you have confidence in their ability to deliver the promised output.
When hiring from today’s top app development companies, it’s best to schedule discovery sessions with at least three potential providers.
During these sessions, each provider should ask you questions and give concrete guidance on how they’d approach your specific project. Ask any provider you’re thinking of moving forward with for a full proposal -- this will help you compare apples to apples when evaluating providers’ approach, working terms, and more.
