Our process

Not sure how to turn your idea into reality? That’s where we come in. As your development partner, we’ll take you from concept to completion and make sure all your goals are met along the way. Let’s step you through it.


1. Discovery

  • We start the process with the signing of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to ensure you fully own your intellectual property.
  • In our initial consultation, we will discuss your project in-depth and evaluate the feasibility and market potential of your app idea.
  • Once we’ve all agreed that your project is viable, we’ll supply you with a detailed free proposal
  • We’ll also check if you are eligible for any government grants or funding.

2. Strategy + User experience

  • We’ll start by understanding your target audience, competitors and project goals.
  • Next, we will analyse all the features in the app and produce a wireframe and user flow diagram. This will help you visualise how the app will function screen by screen from start to finish.
  • We’ll help you develop a monetisation strategy and establish your marketing strategy.
  • We will undertake software architecture analysis and design. And take into account factors such as target platforms, third party software etc.
  • We’ll also provide you with a project specification document, so you know the ins and outs of the project in detail.
UI Design

3. User interface design

  • Our highly experienced design team will create the first few screens of the app to define the ‘design direction’.
  • Once the design direction has been signed off the remaining pages will be designed.
  • Next, we will create a fully interactive prototype and perform user engagement testing to ensure our app flow is perfect.
  • We will then create a UI style guide for developers to use as a guide for the implementation of the app.

4. Development + Quality assurance

  • To keep us on track and you up-to-date, we use the world-renowned agile SCRUM™ methodology.
  • The project is divided into smaller versions. During each version, we will show you the features we have completed so far and gather your feedback.
  • Our team will also work with you to take care of all the app store submissions, hosting set up, subscription to third-party tools and any other technological requirements.

    • Functional testing
    • Load-testing testing

How much will it cost to create a mobile app?

The cost of the mobile app will depend on many factors. Firstly, how many features you have, how technically challenging the app is, and if you want you app to be available for both Android/iOS. In our experience, mobile apps can range from $30K – $500K. Click here to find out the cost of your app.

How long does it take to build an app?

The time taken to build an app varies and contingent on the complexity of the project and if you would like to build for Android/iOS concurrently or just one. Based on past projects, mobile apps are usually turned over between 2 – 8 months.

I have an app idea, how do I protect it from being stolen?

We hold our clients’ privacy with utmost importance. To prevent your app idea from being stolen, you should prepare a non-disclosure agreement for parties to sign if you you disclose the idea to them. Before we ask you about your app idea, we always ask if you have a non-disclosure agreement or provide our own, if you do not. There are more ways to protect your idea, and you can download our eBook to find out more.

Will my app idea work?

We provide you honest feedback when you introduce your idea to us. However, the best way to test if your app idea will work is by talking to real people who will use your app. Idea validation and market research can be an intimidating feat, but lucky for you, we have a free eBook that takes you through everything you need to know.

Should I build for iOS and/or Android?

iOS and Android are the two biggest mobile platforms out there. The iOS dominates Australian, US and UK markets, while Android is one over 1 billion devices. It is probably the right move to eventually build for both platforms, but for many startups, this is not viable. You should take a look at the markets you are wanting to target initially and make a decision based on the demographics of your primary markets.

What does native and hybrid mobile apps mean?

Native mobile apps are built on the proprietary iOS and Android technologies (and will need two separate builds), whereas hybrid apps are built on web technologies, with compatibility on both platforms. EB Pearls favours building mobile apps on native platforms for a multitude of reasons. Primarily, the reliability and stability is significantly better than that for hybrid technologies. Additionally, native development allows you to take advantage of functionalities like location services, photo/camera access and push notifications, among many others.

How do I make money from my mobile app?

  1. There are many ways you can make money from your application. Some of the most popular methods, alongside some examples are listed below:
    • In-app purchases for premium features (e.g. Candy Crush Level-ups)
    • Monthly subscription for continual service after a free trial (e.g. Netflix)
    • Advertisements alongside content (e.g. Facebook Ads)

What should I have ready before I bring on board EB Pearls?

In order to give you the most accurate feedback and quote, it would be very helpful to have a detailed brief with a description of your idea, features wishlist, market research and initial sketches. We’ve written a free eBook that will help you prepare all of this with details as to what you should prepare exactly.

Will you help us raise money or market our app?

We do not offer investment or marketing services. However, we are more than happy to help you fill the gaps for the technical details of your pitch. We also have great partners who we can introduce you to who can help you raise capital and kickstart your marketing campaigns.

How much experience do you have in mobile app development?
