Software development for smartphones and tablets running iOS, Android or Windows Phone is the core of what we do. Our engineers put great efforts in crafting the most robust and well-polished applications. By allowing engineers to work closely with designers we are able to create experiences that often exceed our clients' expectations and delight our users.
The graphical user interface is where first impressions are made and users immediately start forming opinions about your app that turn into word of mouth and online reviews. We approach every interface as users first and designers second. We don’t want to confuse users with excessive flourish and we don’t want to create anything that we wouldn’t want to use ourselves. With these goals in mind, even complex design challenges become easier to solve.
Developing your app in-house? Do like some of the biggest Danish enterprises and have a SHAPE engineer review your code and interaction design before releasing it. App stores are rough environments and your brand will be badly hurt by negative user reviews if you release a mediocre or buggy app.
The first steps are the most important ones when developing mobile apps. Since it is urgently important to get the concept spot on before starting to design things we encourage clients to start with a workshop to get everyone involved up to speed on app development. A custom-fit SHAPE workshop has proven to be an ensuring way to trim an app concept and get the interactions right in the first try.
