MindSea launched its very first iPhone app in 2009 and we've been creating apps for iOS ever since. From our founding, we’ve had a passion for creating mobile experiences that delight users and working with clients to bring their ideas to life.
Over the last few years, we’ve launched more than 65 iPhone apps for our clients and have launched a few iPhone apps of our own. We’ve had more than half of our apps have been featured in the Apple App Store and are constantly working to create mobile experiences that push the needle.
Here are a few of the projects we’ve brought to life over the years:
These are just a few of the iPhone apps that we’ve helped bring to life! We’ve worked on iOS projects across a number of industries, and our apps have been downloaded and used by millions of people around the globe.
We believe that creating a great iPhone app isn’t just about pretty pixels and animations. It’s about your business goals, your users’ goals and creating an experience that your users will want in their everyday lives.
Building and launching an app is not enough. You have to start with a deep understanding of your audience and develop a roadmap that ensures your technology will scale with your user base.
Our approach to developing mobile apps is determined by your goals and starts with an in-depth planning process. We call it the Mobile App Blueprint, and it allows us to better understand your users, your business and your vision. You bring insights and data about your industry, and we'll bring the mobile experience needed to create something great.
When we begin the Blueprint process for an iPhone app, we start by putting on our Sherlock Holmes deerstalkers and diving deep into data, research and collaboration with clients to gather information.
We recognize that it's quickly becoming harder and harder for brands and startups to gain a competitive advantage from tech alone. We're committed to working with companies who share our passion, vision and drive for creating mobile app experiences that can redefine their industries and help their businesses drive meaningful results.
If you’re interested in launching a new iPhone app or redesigning an existing product, you probably have lots of questions. We’ll be on hand to answer every question you throw at us—before, during and after the development process. But let’s start with the two questions that are always front of mind for our clients:
Building an iPhone app from scratch is a task that requires UX/UI, technical and strategic expertise along with a deep understanding of the users the app is being built for. Our App Blueprint process offers a great starting point to gauge the scope of a project and deliver an accurate estimate of the time required to complete the build.
On average our App Blueprint process takes less than four weeks to complete, and building an app can take anywhere from three months to a year.
Just like buying a house, the cost of a mobile app really depends on what you want. We published a great article highlighting How Much It Costs To Build An App that you might find useful as you gather estimates and quotes.
Our initial planning process helps us gauge the technical requirements for your iPhone app to ensure there’s no sticker shock when you finish your build. We look at the requirements as they relate to third-party data, hosting, in-app purchases, monetization strategy and much more.
