App Development

Ideas2Executables takes your idea for an app from concept to deployed software. We execute the entire app development process for small businesses, individuals, entrepreneurs, and teams within large companies to turn their ideas into reality. We also make improvements to existing software, and can assist you with these projects as well.

Our team creates custom apps from scratch to meet your unique vision, including:

  • Web apps built using PHP, HTML, and JavaScript
  • Mobile apps for both Android and iOS for publication in Google Play and the Apple App Store

Our Process for App Development

Ideas2Executables takes a collaborative approach to your app development to create a finished product that meets your vision and exceeds your expectations. Below is a general description of our process.

  1. We work with you to identify Version 1.0 of your app, often known as a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Customers can immediately begin using this version and provide invaluable feedback to help inform future development.
  2. We analyze your requirements and craft a development plan in order to provide a fixed price quote for the project.
  3. Once the plan is agreed to, we begin development. Our team uses industry-standard tools so your investment in the project goes beyond one developer. Our professionals work closely with you during the app building process using continuous communication and feedback to course-correct as we go. This ensures that the final product exceeds your expectations.  We create all software with scalability and future growth in mind.
  4. When the app is complete, we handle all aspects of deployment including publishing your app to Google Play or the Apple App Store and installing web apps on AWS or the hosting provider of your choice.
  5. Ideas2Executables provides critical post-deployment support by fixing bugs and adding features as requested. Future versions follow the same development cycle incorporating user feedback to fully achieve your ultimate vision.

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom App Development

The vast majority of our customers are working with both time and money constraints. To address these, we’ve found the most efficient way to develop mobile apps is to use a platform that allows us to develop a single mobile app that can be deployed on both iOS and Android. This strategy achieves the goal of producing a high quality mobile app that can be sold in both the Mac and Android app store, at a fraction of the cost of native development.

There are a number of platforms in existence to achieve this strategy. Our preferred is Ionic. Ionic has demonstrated multi-platform success for many years and is backed by a responsive and reputable company.

We do not develop native mobile apps. Using a platform that allows us to build an application once and deploy it on both iOS and Android is such a significant cost and time savings, that we can’t justify building individual native apps.

Our standard UI toolbox consists of Bootstrap and jQuery. These technologies are well proven and have a large following, so finding developers in the future to work on your site won’t be difficult. They also provide a large eco-system of plugins and themes that we can leverage.

Because of our custom development programming experience, we also like that both Bootstrap and jQuery make developing our own custom plugins an easy option.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
