Our Process for Mobile App Development in NYC

We’re a team of New York app developers that look forward to working closely with clients. Our people love taking on challenges and finding innovative solutions. We fold these traits into our process to help our clients create some of the most successful apps on the market.

We kick the app development process off with a 5-day design sprint, held at our Chelsea offices, that helps answer critical business questions through design, prototyping and testing ideas with customers. This helps us validate the business goals and design concepts to ensure that we have the project headed in the right direction. From there, we will move on to product strategy. This will include competitive analysis, user personas, user story maps, brand positioning, and more. 

With a clear picture of what the product is supposed to be and the goals of our client, our team can start designing and building your mobile app. Clients can also work with our app developers in New York to handle user testing and post-launch support.

How does Blue Label Labs help clients reach their goals?

We did not become a leading app development company in New York by taking shortcuts. We begin most projects with an in-depth consulting stage. Our teams take great pride in working side-by-side with clients to help them bring their ideas to reality. We want client input and we want to learn about what makes your business and your ideas unique.



Our experts start the process by consulting with you, performing stakeholder interviews and conducting competitive research. Once we have a product strategy, we can begin to work on the design of the app by using personas, mockups, wireframes, and prototypes. With the design stage completed, our NYC app developers will progress to the development stage. 



During the development stage, our engineers focus on the goal of quickly developing and iterating the product through several releases. The purpose of this stage is to develop a minimum viable product that we can get into the hands of users. With real people using the app, we can validate our assumptions and the decisions we made during the design process. We can then use that data to help us refine the app while also considering new features and capabilities.

What makes Blue Label Labs Different from other mobile app developers in New York?

Being an app development company in New York is really just at the surface of what we do.

With ten years of experience and a long list of innovative apps, we know how to unify design, engineering and strategy into one cohesive process to take great ideas and craft awesome products that position our clients for success. 

How much does it cost to develop the best apps? The complexity of the design and development process is one of the most significant factors that can affect the price of app development. However, we are willing to provide clients with free estimates that require no commitment. We also pledge to transfer all project files and source code to the client upon completion of the project and you will be the sole owner of the app and the IP.
