What is an iOS App?

iOS is Apple's Smart Phone operating system that runs on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. iOS apps require more traditional software development techniques. iOS apps allow you to put your service in the hands of your customers when they are on the go.

“I have to admit that we love to take credit for New Leaders' work. Every day we hear from our customers how much they love of our product but the truth be told: it is New Leaders that they are commenting on. Our continued successful working relationship is a testament to your philosophy of openness and accountability, you enable Procore to operate at the top of our game. We look forward to the next project with New Leaders.” — Tooey Courtemanche, Founder of Procore

Designing for Retina Displays

Apple’s newest devices are sporting unbelievably high resolution displays that expose every visual detail of your app's interface. New Leaders user interface designers have created a number of high-resolution products and designed unbelievably high-resolution interface components that look incredible on the iPhone screen.

Web-Based Estimate Process

Once we understand your needs, we will create a web-based estimate that outlines the approach we recommend and the amount of time your project will require from our team. This allows us to provide an estimate quickly and allows you to review it online to make sure that it meets your requirements. We will make adjustments based on your feedback to tailor the scope of the project to fit your budget and goals.

Building your iOS App.

Apple's revolutionary mobile devices allow you the opportunity to deliver your service directly to your customers anywhere they are. A great app is something simple, useful and beautifully designed. We've helped create apps for services such as Appfolio, Procore and Lookout that incorporate a cloud-based service.

Product Planning

New Leaders begins the project by working with you to develop a product specification. Project plans include feature requirements, conceptual mock-ups and user stories which help us fully understand what your app will do and who it will serve. Product planning can take anywhere from 7 to 30 days depending on the complexity of the product. If you already have a web service API in place, many of the features can utilize the data your service makes available. We've been able to design products that go well beyond the experience your current web applications may already provide.

App Design

Using the specifications as a guideline, New Leaders will begin the app-design process. The process consists of our talented designers creating a number of conceptual examples of how the product would be experienced by your customers. We produce between two to three concepts that will meet the requirements but with varying emphases. Based on the feedback provided by you and other project stakeholders, New Leaders will design every aspect of the experience that your customers will utilize when accessing your iOS App. The final designs are then handed to our producers and developers to build the app to specification.

Interface Development

Once the app has been designed, our production developers will export all the custom high-resolution images and import them into the development environment. During this process, unforeseen usability issues and additional graphics are incrementally created to make sure the design mock-ups perform well and work as expected to the user. The outcome of this stage is that the entire user interface has been reconstructed within Xcode allowing our developers to connect their application code to it.

Software Development

iOS apps are built using Objective-C language. Objective-C is more complicated than the languages used for web development but the integrated APIs that Apple's software development kit provides includes access to features such as GPS Location, notifications and the accelerometer. Integrated features such as these allow your users to experience your product in a very visceral way. Or software development process will include weekly review where we will discuss progress we've made during the previous week. We incrementally make changes to the product until all stakeholders feel that the product is high enough quality to submit to the App Store. Development usually takes anywhere from 60 days to 1 year depending on the complexity of the product.

Web Service API

iOS apps pair nicely with Web APIs, that means that your company supplies a web service to which the iOS app can connect. This allows the app to access data and publish to and from the server as people use the app on their devices. New Leaders leverages the power of Ruby on Rails to create RESTful Web APIs that your iOS apps can connect to. This is commonly the foundation for a great iOS app. In many cases we need to define and implement the Web API first which can be accomplished using our Thincloud platform.

Combining the power of rich clients with web services

A revolution has occurred and at the very center is iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system that powers over 500,000 mobile applications available for download instantaneously. New Leaders has embraced this movement and can now offer iOS iPhone and iPad application design and development. Following our successful pattern of definition, design and development, we've created a number of high quality iOS apps for clients.

    Objective-C Development

    Objective-C is an object-oriented language that is a more agile than the C programming language. It is the primary language used for Apple's iOS development environment. In order to build iPhone applications, New Leaders leverages the powerful benefits of Apple's SDK and interface-centric code libraries. This allows developers to utilize a wide array of development techniques that produce stunning user experiences for iPhone customers.

    Ruby on Rails for Web Services

    When it comes to creating an iOS app that is connected to a corresponding web service, New Leaders can develop a custom API for your app that allows it to retrieve data, store information or send data through the web server and database. While there are many iPhone applications in the App Store that are amazing, only a small percentage are directly integrated into web services that complete the entire experience between devices.

    Apple iOS SDK & Interface Builder

    Within the Apple iOS SDK we have access to hundreds of APIs that allow our developers to take advantage of the sensory richness the devices provide such as GPS location, microphone and the built-in video and photo cameras. Applications such as calendars and contacts allow you to seamlessly tie your app into these core system-level data stores.

    Thincloud for Administration

    When creating an administration interface for your application’s settings, records, managing users or providing in-app support, we leverage our Thincloud application framework. It's built on top of Ruby on Rails and allows us to provide a user-friendly experience for administration over web services for countless users.

    Much like the SDK, Interface builder allows our front-end designers to craft custom widgets for your mobile application and give you complete control over how your applications can look and work. The end results are nothing less than breathtaking.

    Webkit for HTML5 Integration

    Webkit is the open-source rendering engine within Safari, Google Chrome and other modern browsers. We are able to utilize web-based content and create hybrid applications that are rendered with Webkit from within your iOS app. That means we are able to create an application that is actually a webpage, and it gives us the ability to develop applications that work seamlessly across multiple platforms and devices.
