Delivering ready to launch mobile apps

  • Consultation and research

    Let's discuss your idea first. A causal consultation, free of charge, without technical jargon. We are happy to sign NDA before we start getting excited about your app. Then we research in detail all available options and discuss the project with the rest of our team.

    Next step is to create a detailed plan of how we are going to deliver your app and a list of everything we are going to need to build. The discovery phase usually takes 2-3 months, and you will get wireframes, UI designs and prototype. But then, of course, we will provide you with a cloud computing architecture plan.

Don't be afraid to ask

Not sure how to start iOS mobile application development?

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we hear from our appreciated customers

Schedule a call email
We need to find out which development route to take and decide between Hybrid vs Native development. Price of an app depends on the complexity of features. We wrote a guide on How much does it cost to build an app? A simple MVP Startup app can cost around £40,000. And a very complex app can go to several hundreds of thousands.
The app development time depends on the features and complexity. App development process is split into several stages. First, we create user stories, and user flows, then wireframes and designs. This stage is called Discovery. After that, we can start with the actual app development and cloud computing platform architecture. Usually, it takes two months to create a prototype. And further 2-3 months to develop a basic startup MVP app.
Yes. We absolutely can. We specialise in helping startup businesses build better products and grow faster. If you would like to discuss your idea with us, we are happy to sign NDA. And you can book a 30-minute call with us to discuss your app.
Full IP and any assets we create belong to you. There is no fee to pay, no licenses or release fees. Anything we create is yours. Empire Elements is a client-focused and full solution agency with no surprise costs!
Anything that would help us understand your app in detail. In any format. A whiteboard screenshot or an idea on a napkin. We are not picky. Some of the best ideas started on a piece of paper. We could arrange a 30-minute phone call to discuss your plan in detail.
A rule of thumb is about 10-20% of your total app cost. You need a reasonable budget for annual maintenance cost. Maintaining an app is critical to its overall success. Regular updates and upgrades could be routine maintenance. Don’t forget the marketing budget!
Apple’s iOS App Store is the place for your app. Your app will have to go through the app review process. Apple will test all aspects of your app. That can take some time. 50% of apps are reviewed in 24 hours. Over 90% are reviewed in 48 hours. On average, over 40% of app rejections are for Guideline 2.1 – Performance: App Completeness. Please don’t underestimate the time it takes to release your app!
Apple releases new iOS in autumn every year. It takes just a couple of months for the adoption rate to reach 80% or more. We want to say always focus on the current version and test new features of the upcoming OS. It could be what separates you from the competition.
Yes, there is. An obvious difference is the screen size of each device. The announcement of iPadOS offers new opportunities. iPad is now becoming the prime focus of fortune 500 companies. Increasing iPad sales mean already valuable digital real estate is rising.

Long-term business partners, industry knowledge, fast communication.
