Potado is a Flutter app development company that works with the most exciting startups and large corporations in Singapore. We develop apps for iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android and web as well as the latest tech such as wearables, IoT, blockchain, and AI. We don't just build apps we build partnerships that come with world class apps that get featured on the app stores.
Whether you want to develop a mobile app for iOS or Android, we can develop a hybrid app for both platforms by using a cross-platform framework such as Flutter. If you want to integrate AI and machine learning we can do it. So let's work together and make something great.
Before developing an app, you will need to decide which platforms you want to build for. iOS, Android or web are the main options we need to consider. Each platform requires a different app, so you will need 1 app for iPhone, 1 for Android and another for web. 3 apps means 3 times the resources and 3 times the cost. That is not something startup founders or large companies like to hear. We call this native app development. Because of this companies had to decide if they wanted to go all in or launch one platform at a time. The good news is that now we have new technology thanks to our smart friends at Google called Flutter. Flutter is a cross-platform tool commonly used in Singapore that allow us to develop apps that work on multiple platforms with one code base.
The first step to a developing an Flutter application in Singapore is defining a sound process. A well planned project makes sure milestones are met on time allowing you to launch sooner and also keeping costs down. So let's take a look at the process we follow at Potado:
Sitting down with our Singapore clients and sharing our thoughts, ideas and insights is the first step of every project. We discuss the technical aspects, design, as as well as the business because a successful project depends on all of the above. We don't just build apps, we build products that scale.
Now that we have an understanding of what is needed, it's time for us to start drawing up some ideas. Our Flutter developers work closely with our clients here to come up with the functionality and layouts needed. Feedback and iteration is key here.
With the planning done it's time to start getting an idea of the look of the project. Our UX design team uses tools such as Figma, Adobe XD, and Sketch are used to draw up well polished user interface designs. We focus on the latest design trends to ensure that the app looks great. We all know a badly designed up is not going to retain users, so design is one of the most important aspects of the app development process.
Now the fun starts. Our flutter developers start bringing the designs to life by writing well thought out, structured and scalable code written in the Dart Language. This part of is the longest part of the app development process but we allow you to be as involved as you want. There is nothing worse than having to wait 4-12 weeks to see the app for the first time. You can opt to see and test the app at any stage of the process from the first week. We love feedback as it helps us add that extra touch of polish.
Once we have built the app, it's time to test it out. We will work with you to simulate using the app as your users would. We will test all functionality and edge cases to ensure no issues arise ofter launch. Testing is essential in app development if you plan to launch your app to the public.
All that's left it to launch the app. We will help you setup the app store listings for the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and the Huawei App Gallery and submit the apps for review. Once the review is complete the apps are now live and ready to use!
Whether you want to develop an app for Android, iOS or web, our global team of designers, app developers, UX specialist and product managers will work with you to develop an innovative digital solution at an affordable cost using Flutter. This is what a few of our clients had to say about working with us:
"We needed to build a mobile app to reach out customers on Android and iOS, but wanted a cost effective solution so we worked with Potado to develop us an app with Flutter. By doing this we were able to save time and money. There is a misconception that because the app isn't native it would be slower and not as performant, but this isn't true at all. We compared our apps to native apps our competitors have and there is no difference at all."
"We currently have apps on the app stores, but they are a bit dated using Objective-C for iOS and Java for Android. Most developers have moved onto Swift and Kotlin respectively for native app development, so we wanted to rebuild out apps and decided that Flutter would be a more future proof solution. We now have apps for both platforms and all in one neat codebase. This makes it easy for us to push updates in the future as we only need one codebase to be updated now."
