The process for native app development can vary depending on the specific needs of the client. However, in general, the native app development process follows these steps.

  1. Analysis and Planning: The first step is to analyze the client’s needs and requirements and plan out the app’s features and functionality.
  2. Design: Next, the app’s design is created, taking into account the platform’s user interface guidelines.
  3. Development: The app is then built using the appropriate programming language (Swift for iOS apps, Java for Android apps).
  4. Testing: The app is thoroughly tested to ensure that it meets all of the client’s expectations.
  5. Deployment: Once all of the testing is completed, the app is deployed to the relevant app stores (the Apple App Store and Google Play Store).

What are native mobile apps?

A native mobile app is a smartphone or tablet application that is developed specifically for a particular mobile operating system (in most cases, iOS or Android). A native app has the potential to provide better performance and a more user-friendly experience than a non-native (or "hybrid") app.

Our team of native app developers has extensive experience in building high-quality iOS and Android apps. We can help you take advantage of the latest features of each platform, including integrations with video, wearables, IoT, voice-based interfaces, push notifications, geolocation, payment processing, and more.

"A lot of companies only pay lip service to having an iterative process, but Mission Data delivered on that promise throughout the entire engagement. While working with Mission Data, there were never any surprises or gotchas– just solid results and a great mobile app that is providing value to our customers. Our initial project began in August 2012, with a second project that began in late 2013. Both projects have been big successes and are now maintained with managed services provided by the Mission Data Team."

iOS vs Android?

When it comes to native mobile apps, there are two main platforms: iOS and Android. Each has its own set of pros and cons.

  • Apps tend to be more focused on solid user-experience as Apple has always been a design-led company and they expect the same of apps in their marketplace.
  • Largest market share in North America
  • Perceived more secure due to strict review process and terms on the Apple App Store. 100% of apps on the Apple App store have been screened for known malware.
  • A very small number of devices from only one manufacturer makes for easier testing and ensuring the app can work on most devices in the market.


  • Apple must approve your apps and you're bound by their somewhat strict terms
  • No real ability to tap into the core OS unless Apple allows you to
  • Requires Apple proprietary tools and development language to build fully native apps

  • Has the highest adoption and market share worldwide
  • More flexibility in what apps are capable of doing, tapping into the core OS features.
  • Development in Java means in many cases less steep learning curve to develop.
  • Android OS can run on a variety of devices from a variety of manufacturers allowing more flexibility for consumers
  • Less stringent review process


  • Android OS can run on a very large number of devices making it hard to ensure your app will work effectively on any device capable of running it.
  • Non-Google devices may be running a customized version of the OS that diverges from the original OS opening up security flaws.
  • Android updates are usually staggered as device manufacturers need to test updates to the OS before pushing updates to their customers
