Here’s how our process works:

1. Discovery & Design

We understand the necessity of making an impression on customers and differentiating one’s application from the thousands already in the market. In order to produce a truly unique mobile app, we begin by studying your business and brand. We learn your current needs and short-term and long-term goals and consider all of these when designing the appearance and structure of the app. We also study your target audience, their expectations, and what irks them when using your competitors’ apps. 


Our team will help you capture a wider following by building a mobile app that outpaces the competition in form and function. More importantly, we’ll help you craft a satisfying user experience that will earn you repeat buyers and long-term, loyal customers.

2. Development

After Design & Discovery is complete, our expert developers build the mobile application. The development phase will vary for each project depending on whether we build an iOS app, an Android app, two native apps for both iOS and Android, or two apps for iOS and Android with a single code base in a cross-platform language such as Flutter or React Native.


However, most will include creating backend systems for processing and hosting data and developing the front end of the application (where users interact). As we develop the app, our team will conduct regular meetings with you where we report on our progress and make necessary decisions as issues arise or adjustments are needed.


We develop the following apps:

Native Applications

Native Applications (iOS and/or Android)

Native Applications are mobile apps that are developed in the native languages for iOS (Swift) and/or Android (Java/Kotlin). Native languages have been developed by the teams behind the native operating systems, therefore they fully adhere to the requirements and guidelines for those operating systems.

Any application that requires high performance (e.g. animation heavy) or interacts with hardware specific features (bluetooth, gps, camera, etc.) will perform better with a native code base.

Also, it can be assumed that a native code base will always be supported by its respective operating system since those systems and code bases will continue to be maintained and consistently updated.

Cross-Platform Apps

Cross-Platform Applications

Another increasingly popular option for mobile application development is cross-platform development. For this, we use frameworks such as Google Flutter or React Native. By using a cross-platform framework, one code base is built to support both an iOS and Android application.

With one code base, it can be more cost-effective to build and maintain an application over time.

For many products, a cross-platform codebase is more than adequate to support the feature sets with little to no performance loss. However, some feature sets such as hardware integrations or animations may be limited because cross-platform frameworks cannot access all device functionalities. Nevertheless, this is a suitable choice if you want uniformity across platforms.

Progressive Web Applications

Progressive Web Applications

Progressive web apps offer native-like capabilities on desktops. These apps are accessible and functional on a web browser, so people don’t have to download and install them on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to use them. 

Why invest in progressive web apps? Because they can make for a more seamless user experience. An app offers an incredible opportunity to focus a person’s attention on your brand, products, and services. Sometimes, customers just want a smooth, hassle-free experience. If the convenience of completing a call to action in a few clicks will pay off in higher sales, consider using progressive web apps.    

Wearable Applications

Wearable Applications

Jackrabbit Mobile also designs and builds applications for wearable devices like smartwatches and biosensors that connect to your mobile phone. 

Integrating companion apps for wearable devices enhances their functionality. In the case of health monitoring devices, these apps can even save lives.

Our skilled team utilizes the latest technologies to develop apps for smart devices and wearable gadgets. Together, we’ll strategize solutions that will satisfy your target market. 

3. Testing

Once the mobile app is built, our team begins testing using a strategy unique to each platform:

  • iOS - TestFlight is an Apple-developed platform where we can distribute and you can use an app before it’s distributed to the App Store.  Every app is different, but typically we can begin to deploy builds of an app via TestFlight when the application is 50-60% complete.  This allows our clients to start testing and give feedback on usability and catch bugs etc.

  • Android - Install software directly onto the device by sharing a .apk file so that it can be installed, used, and tested before sending it to the Google Play Store.

4. Deploy To App and/or Google Play Store

When we are done and satisfied with the outcomes of beta testing, we can then proceed with publishing. However, getting an app on Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store is not as easy as pressing a button. 

The app must meet each platform’s security, quality, and performance criteria. They have different qualifications but require apps to offer a good user experience. Apps should function reliably, not be prone to crashing or bugging, provide a privacy policy if they collect user information, observe security coding best practices if they process payments, have the necessary licenses for any patented content they use, and comply with all applicable legal guidelines within their industry. 

We have plenty of experience building apps that pass the criteria for publishing on the App Store and Google Play Store. Jackrabbit Mobile will ensure your app is up to design and functionality standards. 

5. App Support

Our work doesn’t end with publishing your app on your chosen marketplaces. We also provide ongoing support to monitor the app’s performance after publishing. We fix bugs, review comments, and collect information about the app’s performance. Feedback from the first users provides insights that we use to improve the app further and make it more satisfying for newer users.
