Our Process Of Developing Apps
Since we started Jempoints, we’ve received over 1000 requests to build apps and we’ve discussed with many app
entrepreneurs to help them kickstart their business. Based on our experience of building tens of apps for our clients and of
working on our own products, we've developed a workflow process that increases the chances of having a successful project.
Please check out below how we take your idea from concept to reality, how our services are priced or simply

Strategy & Project Documentation
We work with you to understand your idea and we merge your initial concept with everything our team knows about mobile apps. We establish what features go into the product, how they will work together, and we create a Product Requirements and Specifications Document (See a sample for a simple app and for a complex one). This document is the foundation for all the steps to come. It will be be used by our designers to come up with designs and by our developers as a guideline for coding. It will also allow us to give you the most accurate price quote and you’re free to use this document to request quotes from other companies too.
Price: $350 for simple projects (standalone app with up to 10 screens)
$750 for complex projects (app with over 10 screens, backend, API etc.)
What you pay at this stage serves as a deposit and will be deducted from the total price, when you decide to move on with the project.
Wireframes are the skeleton behind the user interface and they contain all the elements that go into every screen. They do not define the “look and feel”, but rather the layout, hierarchy, and interaction schema that is responsible for a good “user experience”. Wireframing saves time because our development team understands easier what needs to be built and it also reduces the risk of leaving certain things out.
Price: $250 for a simple app (up to 10 screens); Starting from $500 for complex apps.
Identity & UI/UX Design
When it comes to first impressions, it’s all about design. By identifying and understanding the essence and core values of your brand, we create your unique identity. We’ll put our passion for good design to work and based on approved wireframes we’ll design all screens. We'll craft a beautiful, functional design with your specific users in mind.
Price: $500 - Identity (Logo, App Icon)
$1,000 - UI/UX Design for a simple app (up to 10 screens); Starting from $2,000 for complex apps.
Architecture & Development
Development isn’t just about writing code. The very first step in developing an awesome app is figuring out its architecture. Our lead architect and a team of senior developers pick the perfect technologies for your app. The app development process is broken down into sprints based on feature sets and our agile approach will allow you to regularly review and assess what we’re building. Our Quality Assurance team will test the app after each development sprint and once all major functionality is implemented, we’ll prepare a Beta Build.
Price: Depends on the complexity of your app and the number of platforms. We’ll give you a fixed price quote based on the Product Requirements and Specifications Document (created by us at the first step or provided by you).
Launch & Maintenance
After passing the Beta Build through a final round of QA and refinements, we’ll have in our hands a Release Candidate Build. Once we have the build ready, we set up the in-app products (if it’s the case), and we publish your app. If it’s built for iOS devices, we make sure it gets through Apple’s App Store acceptance process.
We provide our clients with a 3 months bug fixing period (after releasing the final version), free of charge, and maintenance packages that cover everything from small updates all the way to whole new versions.
Price: $150/store - Publishing
Maintenance packages are priced as a fixed fee based on agreed scope of work, or alternatively based on hourly rate.
