Big Human: An iPhone App Development Agency
Let us introduce ourselves: We’re Big Human, a product and brand design agency specializing in iPhone application development. The “Human” in our name comes from our obsession with the end user experience, crafting an enjoyable experience for users at every touch. Made up of a team of developers, designers, strategists, and product managers, we hope to one day share our expertise and love of collaboration with you!
We create iOS applications that bring joy to the App Store. Our application experiences include a diverse spectrum of clients, ranging from a startup founder testing an idea, to established enterprise clients looking for a system upgrade. Our brilliant team of engineers have both front-end and back-end expertise, allowing us to serve the needs of every client we partner with.
iPhone Apps for Startups
As a group of creative thinkers, we thrive when working on iPhone applications for startups. We love taking new concepts, and collaborating with founders to make that vision a real App Store download. We help clients prioritize features for their MVP, test features for usability, and help refine based on what we learn.
iPhone Applications for Enterprise
Whether launching a new application, or redesigning an existing product, our iOS development team can handle any task. We’ve worked with a range of enterprise clients, including financial trading applications and communications platform maintenance, and are pros at adapting to new design challenges.
We make apps of our own
At Big Human, we have proof to show just how much we love creative technology. We’re proud of the applications we’ve built and launched, maybe you’ve heard of them? Vine and HQ are among our most successful labors of love, bringing a lot of user traffic straight from the Apple App Store.
Beyond Apps: Brand & Product Design
We don’t just program iOS applications at Big Human. In fact, we are a full-service agency that specializes in design across all platforms and devices. We often work with clients to help them identify other valuable design opportunities in tandem with their iPhone app development projects. Drop us a line if you need brand and product design along with your development needs.
Every client has unique needs, and we’re able to customize our process for every project. Sometimes we work with clients that are looking to create and launch a new brand, alongside a brand-new iPhone application. Other times, our clients have an existing platform that needs to be re-evaluated and updated based on user needs and new iOS technology. Whatever your needs, we have capabilities to match.
User Research Strategy
Developing an understanding of a client’s users and their needs is essential to building successful App Store applications. We utilize various methods of user research, data analysis, and competitive audits to assess the necessary user-first features and functionalities.
Tailoring a product to unique user journeys helps us create iOS applications that stand out. We are careful about considering how users interact with the application, from the first click through every design update. Our design process enables us to create seamless, easy-to-use applications.
Cross-Platform App Development
In the current technology age, we know it’s important for users to have options when it comes to where and how to access their favorite applications. Because users aren’t tied to a single device, we have design and development capabilities across desktop, mobile, Android, and iOS applications.
QA and A/B Testing
We pride ourselves on being solutions-oriented collaborators. When it comes to finalizing an iPhone project, we don’t stop our work until every pixel is functional and in its final place. Once our applications have been designed, developed, and launched, we work to QA and A/B test any features that need to be ironed out to reach perfection.
While every project is unique, we leverage our tech expertise and collaborate with clients throughout a phased project approach. Our strategy and product management teams uncover insights, our design team creates insights-based design solutions, our development team turns concepts into working prototypes, and our teams polish the final product with an iterative approach.
Strategy & Discovery
Our discovery phase is all about hunting down the known and unknown elements of a project, and putting the pieces together. We work with clients to understand the business needs of a new iPhone application, and we conduct research along with data analysis to align those needs with users’ needs.
Design & Refine
The Big Human design teams work from concept through execution, following an iterative design process: concepting, wireframing, hi-fi prototypes, and final design files. Our designers lend their creative skill sets to many design challenges beyond iOS applications, including: brand design, illustration, web design, and more.
Develop & Test
Our programmers are knowledgeable across many different languages and platforms, building custom solutions for every Apple iPhone application. We develop solutions that enable users to access client’s products across all platforms and operating systems: smartphone, tablet, laptop, iOS or Android.
Launch & Iterate
Our work doesn’t end once an app goes live. Instead, we make sure our new App Store app is functioning seamlessly, easy to use, and that asset handoff is ready to go. By testing and evaluating our iPhone app development services, we’re able to create unique products and test them with real users.
We’ve helped many clients—from startups to established retail leaders—find success online by building custom shops and marketplaces with our leading-edge iPhone application development services. Whether you’re a trailblazing founder looking to break the industry mold by reimagining what it means to shop online or an ecommerce veteran, we’d love to help!
