Our Android App Development Process
Mobile app development process typically includes analysis, design, development, deployment, and post-launch phases
02 User-Experience Design
We begin this process by writing down a list of features we want the app to perform and a list of what needs to be displayed somewhere in the app. These are the basic building blocks with which we will build the wireframes.
Tools :Whiteboards, Pencil & paper
In this process, we create screens and assigning each functions and data.
Tools : Whiteboards, Pencil & paper, Balsamiq
We create pathways how users can travel within app.
Tools :Whiteboards, Pencil & paper, Invision
It helps us to test wireframes and workflows. This is way to experience wireframes on a phone for more realistic testing. Although the app has no functionality at this point, but we can click on each page in the app and begin testing the app’s navigation. We can make changes with our wireframes and iterate if we find issues in this step.
03 User-Interface Design
Style guides are basically the building blocks app’s design. Having a sound style guide will help tremendously with our app’s usability. There is a lot that goes into determining an app’s style guide so we need to know who our customers will be.

04 High-level Technical Design
Front-end (the mobile app)
For front-end development, there are basically 3 approaches. They are platform-specific native, cross-platform native, and hybrids. We will go with following approach
Platform-specific Native – Apps built with this approach are written separately for each mobile platform. Code can’t be reused between Android and iOS, but these apps can be fully optimized for each platform. The UI can look entirely native (so it will fit in with the OS) and the app should work fluidly. The apps have the higher visibility in the respective stores.This is very much tried and tested.
Technology Stack : Java, XML, Android Studio, Android Sdk, Objective C, Xcode
Front-end (web app)
Back-end (Web API & Server)
Mobile app need to communicate to remote server and DB lying on it, so REST base API will be used to establish communication between mobile and web client and server and same backend solution will be used for both web and mobile client. The server is responsible for much of our app’s performance and scalability.
Technology Stack : PHP, Laravel, Mysql, Nginx, Composer
05 Development & Iteration
At Ahex Technologies, we have a very well defined software development process, which has helped us in delivering high quality and reliable end products to our clients within the specified budget and timelines.
At Ahex, we follow agile approach towards developing a software product. With this approach we have a greater control over the quality of the end product, reduces risks of missing scope and also gives client opportunity to update / modify the requirements.
Component Architecture – For Agile with Discipline development, our key practice is to define a web/mobile application functional architecture into a number of collaborating components; analyze the major technical concerns that affect the solution; and prioritize architecture decisions. We focus on how the solution will be built to ensure resilience and maintainability by creating a set of pluggable components that can be enhanced or even replaced individually as technology evolves.
Iterative Development – Our practice is to create any web application in increments. Each increment is completed in a fixed period of time, commonly known as a sprint in the agile world. A completed sprint will produce a tested application available to integrate and run from a cloud environment. Sprints are reviewed, and lessons learned are applied to future sprints planning. Depending on the business objectives, sometimes we complete multiple sprints, perform end-to-end regression testing and then go live to production.
Continuous Development – Our practice in an Agile with Discipline approach is to use our cloud and DevOps solutions to rapidly provision development and test environments and to establish automated build and deployment processes. When team members integrate their work frequently (at least daily), it reduces the occurrence of regression and integration problems.
Continuous Communication – We believe that communication is the most important aspect of the product development process. The project manager assigned to your project is not only responsible for planning, executing and keeping the project development in accordance with the requirement but is also responsible to communicate the client with day to day progress of the work.
Repository Management – We maintain the code repository of your project using git based tools, which keeps your project change history in a secure way and provide fail safe options to recover the work done in case of failures. It also keep you updated with the work done on your codebase on daily basis.
Functional Testing – We will make test plan with a list of actions and the desired app behavior.
Usability Testing – We will perform this testing to ensure the feature is user-friendly and is as intuitive as possible.
Performance Testing – We will do this testing to check if app takes a lot of time for some features. Performance testing is typically more important in later sprints, but we keep an eye on the app’s responsiveness as you move along.
Regression Testing – We will have a list of tests to perform at the end of each sprint, which will include tests from previous sprints.
Device-Specific Testing – We make sure to try out your app on numerous screen sizes and OS versions. There are tools that can help automate this, such as Google’s Firebase, but we always test the app on at least a handful of physical devices.
User Acceptance Testing – This is testing performed by app owner or future app users.
Web API (Server)
As our mobile app require a server back-end to function so web servers will be responsible for transferring data to and from the app. We will be using AWS services like EC2, S3, Route53 and RDS 53, etc to deploy our backend solution.
Server configuration will be dependent on number of concurrency, traffic, computing, storage. Please refer below link to know more details
Submitting your apps to the app stores is a moderately involved process. We will make sure our apps are properly configured for release, help you fill out several forms for each store, submit screenshots. . Additionally, Apple manually reviews all apps submitted to their app store. It is possible they will request you make changes to your app to better comply with their regulations. We will help you to discuss these changes with Apple and get them to accept your app as-is. Once your app is submitted, it will be live in Google later that day and in Apple within a few days, assuming everything goes smoothly.
Even After going, this requires updates include fixes, performance improvements, changes, and new features. Thorough monitoring is essential to best understand what sort of updates are needed. Here are a few things should be monitored
There are numerous libraries that can be used to reliably track app crashes. We use crashlytics libraries include information about what the user was doing, what device they were on, and plenty of technical info that is crucial for your development team in resolving the problem. Apps can be configured to send an email/text/alert when crashes occur.
Modern app analytics systems gives us plenty of information. We can integrate such tools can help you understand who is using your apps (age, gender, location, language, etc.) and how they are using it (time of day, time spent in app, screens viewed in app, etc.). You can use this information to best understand where to invest future efforts.
Tools: Google Analytics
After deployment we need to have extensive performance monitoring in place to know how many times an action occurred and how long that action took. We also put alerts in place to let us know if a particular action is slower than expected, so we can quickly look to see if there are any issues. These performance tools typically have dash-boarding, reporting, and alerting functionality included.
