A PROTOTYPE IS CRITICAL
Unique to Mobilezapp is our Mobile Prototype Program. We believe it is absolutely critical to the success of your organization’s mobile strategy. The mobile prototype empowers your organization with a large number of advantages.
The mobile app prototype we will create for you is delivered in a clickable PDF or HTML web page format. It will allow your team to see almost exactly how the app will function, what it will look like, how many screens are going to be needed and much more. The clickable mobile prototype allows you to gain a much better understanding of the capabilities of your app on a wide variety of devices.
SMARTPHONE AND TABLET PROTOTYPES
The screen sizes of the iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Symbian and BlackBerry devices are much smaller than the iPad, iPad mini and Android tablet devices. We can create two different mobile prototypes for your organization - one for the smartphone devices and another for tablet devices.
The creation of smartphone and tablet prototypes is the only way you can receive a realistic bid and time frame for the delivery of your mobile solution.

KICK OFF MEETING
The first step toward delivering a superior mobile app is a “kick off” meeting. Attending the meeting from the Mobilezapp team will be your customer service manager, project development manager, lead developer and your account executive. Attending the meeting from your organization should be all of the stakeholders, especially those from the product management and marketing team, someone from the sales team, individuals from your IT/IS team responsible for backend functions and a marketing/graphic design manager.
In our several hour meeting we will review the mobile profile/questionnaire you have provided. We will discover needed information from your IT/IS team such as how your API works. We will need to understand what sort of back-end databases we will need to access - whether they be Oracle, Sybase, MS-SQL and MYSQL. We will discuss with your product marketing managers our findings regarding the competitive landscape. For example - which of your competitors have mobile apps, how many do they have, and what are the feature sets provided with their apps. We will receive guidelines for logo usage, RGB color values and best practice requirements from your marketing/graphic design manager.
The “kick off” meeting will be recorded and distributed to your organization for review. It serves as the starting point for your mobile application strategy with Mobilezapp.
INFORMATION FLOWCHART & WIREFRAMES
We will provide your organization with a detailed flowchart of information. This document will detail everything from the registration, password selection and password verification process to the delivery of information from your back-end databases. The delivery of the
information from your servers including banking information such as a bank balances, money transfers, pending deposits and previous transactions. It can include accessing a reservation system stored on a mainframe computer, accessing a claim with an insurance company . . . all of the functions currently provided on PCs.
YOUR GUI IS DEVELOPED
Another very important aspect of our Mobile Prototype Program is the design of your GUI. We painstakingly design each and every screen - maximizing the smaller screen size of the smartphones as well as the larger screen size of tablet devices. The GUI design is a multi-step, iterative process. We start off by creating storyboards. Once your team approves our initial artwork, we use these toward the creation of your mobile app GUI.
