Using These Techniques
01
/ Strategy

Discovery & Strategy

Initially we carry out multiple discovery meetings and workshops with you and your team and once we feel we have delved deep enough, we create the application strategy document. This document is central to how we work on the project and the solutions that we create.

02
/ User Journey

User Journey

Every user on your app will follow a user journey. So, the clearer we map this journey out, the easier your users will find using the application. This ease of use will lead to an excellent user experience and thus, a higher conversion ratio for your intended goals.

03
/ Design System

Design System

We’ll plan & create a branded design system that covers all the elements needed to build an app. In the design system we detail colour palettes, font choices, button styles, input styles and hone in on the detail.

04
/ Prototyping

Prototyping & Motion

We’ll invite you to experience these UI motions by prototyping them in app simulator software so you can experience the app as it would be used once live before it’s launched.

05
/ UI/UX

UI/UX Design

Using the design system created, our specialist designers will start to create a modern app user interface (UI) using all the brand system elements. The KIJO UI team is highly experienced in curating a premium user experience (UX) to ensure the best possible app interaction for your users.

06
/ Development

Development

KIJO’s app development team turn the design into a fully functioning application. Development is planned across a number of milestones including weekly meetings to discuss progress, priorities and testing feedback.

07
/ Q&A

Quality Assurance

Throughout the Agile development process, each individual element and feature of the app will be tested and signed off, ensuring absolute quality assurance. Once all the features of the app have been signed off we’ll host an internal & external testing process that allows for 3rd party user testing.

Through These Features
React
React

We build advanced, easy-to-use apps using React. This framework allows faster rendering and a stable code structure. Apps built with React respond to data changes without requiring reloads, so your unique web software feels native.

React Native
React Native

We use React Native to create cross-platform native applications. The same codebase can be used to develop apps for both iOS and Android which reduces both time and cost when releasing apps for the two major app platforms.

02 / 09
Laravel
Laravel

At KIJO, we use Laravel; an intuitive programme that helps speed up your time to market. It’s fast, cost-effective, scalable and the most secure framework available.

03 / 09
iOS and Android
iOS and Android

We can create native iOS as well as Android apps from app ideation all the way to product launch on the Apple Store and Google play store. We’ll make your applications usable across the full range of Apple and Google products, opening up your business to a wider, global audience.

Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality

We can bring your product to life with Augmented Reality. If your product is clothing, we can curate a virtual try on service. Sell rugs?

You can alert your users via push notifications about updates and offers on products. These are visual prompts that appear on their phone’s home screen directly from your app which help increase conversions – KIJO can build these into your app design.

07 / 09
Booking Systems & eCommerce
Booking Systems & eCommerce

Do your users need to book appointments? We can integrate that service into your app by developing an intelligent booking service. Or perhaps you want your users to buy products through your app? We can build a seamless system for in-app purchases or subscriptions that sync up to your website’s eCommerce platform.

08 / 09
App
3D Builders

If your product has multiple variations, then we can build your app a 3D builder so user’s can experience the product in their preferred variation instantly and then zoom, spin and change the product according to their taste. Then, using augmented reality, they can get a taste for your product in their space – all before purchase!

“I was really impressed with how well things ran on this project. The KIJO team was able to translate our ask into a reality with very little intervention from us, and it was basically perfect on the first round. I also appreciated how various members of the team offered us additional help/feedback outside of the scope of the project!”

Frequently Asked Questions

01
How much does it cost to build an app?

The cost of building an app can vary hugely depending on your project aims and ambitions. However, due to the development process of applications, a budget of less than £20,000 would be unrealistic.

02
How long does it take to develop an app?

This really depends on the feature set of the app solution we are creating. The more complex the app, the longer development will take. We will be able to give you an estimated project length in the project proposal we create after carrying out a consultation with you.

03
Will you release the app in the app stores?

Yes. Our app package includes managing the release of the app in the app stores and we will guide you through this process. Once the app has been released, we can transfer the app over to a different app store account if required. Alternatively, we can also guide you through an app release through your own app store accounts.

04
Can you advise me on how to gain users for our app?

Here at KIJO, we don’t offer app marketing services in-house. However, we can refer you to a 3rd party agency who will offer you preferential rates because of our referral, should you use them for app marketing services.

05
Is the app’s IP ours once it’s built?

This is all handled in the project contract. We’ll transfer all new IP created on the project, if requested, over to you. We will also discuss any existing KIJO IP we wish to use on the project (if any) and the licensing terms associated with that IP.

06
Do you have examples of apps you’ve previously built?

Yes, we have lots of examples of apps we’ve built. The best way to check out our recent app portfolio is via the following link: View the KIJO app case studies.
