Plan your app
Planning is everything to us.
The Arctic Edge Discovery Stage is where you share your app concept with us and we break it down into many workable pieces. These steps and pieces of your concept are laid out in an action plan where we add features and various other nerdy notes on how your idea can be executed into a beautiful working app.
Within the Discovery Stage, you will witness your idea come to life as we begin designing the user interface and user experience by building a working prototype of your prospective app. You get to explore your working prototype and during this timeframe make the necessary adjustments before we commence development.
This discovery stage allows us to work through each step of the process with you, covering each scenario and possibility of the end product to ensure your app matches your needs and expectations.
How Does It Work?
The first step of the discovery stage includes the creation of a detailed specification document, or “spec doc” for short. This document will outline all the features and functionalities of your app in easy-to-understand terms. Our UI/UX designers will then start designing and creating wireframes of your app after which the fun part commences, the prototype.
What is included in the discovery phase?
By planning an app or software system correctly, you will be able to build your dream system that you can be proud of before even commiting to a development phase. Here at Arctic we also see this as a trial phase to show you what we are made of.
Looking to give your customers the best possible experience possible? During this stage we will be looking deep into the psychology of your users' interactions, find ways to give your system a market edge and build fans out of your products or services.
This document is to cover all of your project's details in depth. This is critical to the success of your system as you will be documenting the entire Discovery Phase in black and white. If you are unsure of anything, you can reflect back on this doc to bring you back up to speed.
Wireframes allow our app development team to see weaknesses in the flow of the app or software and find viable solutions to strengthen them. This stage will also allow you to see all of your screens from a bird's eye-view so you get a full grasp on your system's specifications.
Blow them away!
We build a hyper realistic clickable prototype of your app to simulate your concept, allowing you to see your idea coming to life for the first time. The prototype allows you to strengthen your flow and experience some of the features playing out in the palm of your hand as they have in your visions and planning.
