Disruptive mobile apps

iOS mobile app development or Android app development?

We build innovative applications for both platforms using native app development or cross-platform development. Our app developers are not afraid to take on a challenge and create demanding mobile applications for various industries. Choosing the right mobile app development company in London or anywhere else in the UK or Europe is key to your app's success. Not sure whether your mobile app should be built in React Native, Swift or Flutter? Don't worry; Empire Elements is here to help you decide what is most beneficial for your users while keeping the solution cost-effective for your business. We are passionate about building productive long term partnerships with our clients and being a part of their growth and success.

Native app development

Very fast and responsive apps because they are built for that specific platform. Offer the ultimate experience to your users. Choose native development for a high-performance commercial software product. A social networking mobile app, Do a Wilson, offering Snapchat like face masks and filters is a native app developed exclusively for iOS using Swift.

Hybrid app development

The development of hybrid applications is cost effective and faster. With a single code base, we can develop apps for both iOS and Android platforms. We love using hot new frameworks like React Native,β€ŠIonic and Flutter to build fast and user centred mobile apps. My Hippo Space is our latest hybrid mobile app aiming to shake up the UK's growing sharing economy mobile app market.

UI/UX designs

Focusing on your user with consistent UI using great tools like Sketch or Adobe XD. Our team of UI and UX designers and information architects will create user flows and wireframes to give you a blueprint of how your mobile app will work and its layout. We will also create a clickable prototype of your mobile app that you can use on your phone.

App support

You can rely on our experience to support your app from the beginning. Helping you create Google and Apple developer accounts and setting up beta testing. You will be able to test each app build and see the progress. We will create screenshots for the App store, write the description and keywords. Then submit the app for review and take care of any issues that may arise during the review process.

Analytics

Gathering business metrics is essential for your app growth and business success. Our developers integrate crash report analytics into your app to monitor any app crashes so these can be looked at before even being reported by users. We also monitor how fast the app is and if there are any load balancing improvements to be made. Your app needs to be fast and able to support thousands of users at the same time.

MVPs for startups

When you have a solid idea about your mobile app and secured funding, then it's time to decide what features to build first. With Minimum Viable Product (MVP) you can launch your mobile app to the market much faster, having just core features. After gathering user feedback you can decide on what additional features to build next and how to improve your end product even further.

Not just here to build MVP or a mobile app for you, we care about your business and your success
Our active, hands-on CEOs take the time to understand your business and come up with ideas on how your mobile app could differentiate itself from others in the market.

We understand that you may have concerns about sharing your startup idea with a mobile application development company without NDA signed.

Integration tools to grow, engage and monitor

API integrations for faster innovation

Third-party API integrations are vital for businesses that want to grow fast and innovate. Instead of building your own mapping, payment or communication services, our app developers can integrate third-party APIs, saving you money and time. Money you could spend growing your business or adding new features and value to your users. Time you could spend launching new products and expanding your business.

Integrating APIs in your web or mobile app could transform your business rather than using time-consuming, outdated and expensive measures to run your business. By building applications using API integrations, you can reduce costs and time spent on development.

APIs give your business the opportunity to be flexible, plan for scale, innovate faster and reach wider user audience.

...

Payments

Handling all aspects of payments for forward-thinking businesses. Accept debit and credit card payments, Apple Pay and other payment methods on your website or mobile app. Whether your app is a subscription service, on-demand mobile app or a crowdfunding platform.

Zest Group, Russia

Empire Elements were excited to work with us on developing our idea, connecting locums, hospitals and agencies.

The whole process was transparent and communication was superb throughout.

In addition to formatting the app’s layout, Empire Elements contributed to the graphical designs of those features. There’s also a chat feature that allows users to communicate with each other. Empire Elements conceptualized and programmed a trending section within the platform’s home page.

Don't be afraid to ask

Not sure how to start mobile application development and want to ask us some questions first?

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

You can talk to us 24/7 and we provide signed NDA in 5 minutes.

Call +442078460326 email
We offer both options. There are perfectly valid business benefits for each development route. Every project is different we can explore together which choice of app development would be better for you.

To find out more:
This is a usually tricky question to answer. Price of an app really depends on your app and how complex it is. We would first need to discuss your app in a bit more detail to get a practical understanding of how everything works. We usually build apps from Β£20,0000 to Β£200,000. The average cost for an average complexity mobile app is around Β£40,000.

The complexity of your app usually dictates the amount of work to build app features. It can be anything from 3 to 12 months. Average time to build medium complexity app is about 4 months.
You don't need to give us any technical specifications documents! First let's discuss your project casually, over a coffee, and we make notes. Just tell us in your own words about your app idea.
A minimum viable product (MVP) is a concept that stresses the impact of learning in new product development. It is a version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort. Usually, that's a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers and to provide feedback for future product development.
Once your app is launched our job is done, but we are not going anywhere! We will be here ready to offer support services as you need. That can be updates, upgrades, architecture management or anything else you might need. We like to be there and available to our clients.
Adaptive maintenance practices are changes made to the applications to keep the system updated. Typical examples would be app updates for new operating system versions, fault correction, performance updates and stability enhancements. If you are interested in such a service, let's have a chat.
Absolutely yes. Any work we do is yours, and you will get to keep your assets, branding, code and anything that we create. You are appointing us to create something for you, so we think it's fair that work is yours. There is no licensing, no leasing. All the work is yours.
Yes, we do! And we will help you to create assets for the app store, write text and even promote your app. And the hidden bonus is that you'll also get an app landing page with us! Take a look at Do A Wilson landing page as an example.
