Our App Development Process


Have you been considering integrating a mobile app for your business but aren’t sure where to start? Bluestone Apps can help you determine a game plan and set foot together on the path to your new business venture. We’ll help out with our 6-step process that eliminates room for headache or confusion and sets you the right track for your app’s design, development, launch and marketing.

It all starts with a…

1 On 1 Consultation

The first step is a 1 on 1 consultation, whether by phone, live chat, or face to face to have a clear understanding of your business objectives. We analyze your situation and provide recommendations to improve your current platform while maximizing traffic and revenue to foster sustainable growth for your business.

Next we prepare a…

Digital Proposal

After we get a feel for what you need, we’ll send you a digital proposal to review. The proposal will outline the objectives discussed in our consultation as well as recommendations and strategies custom-tailored to your business. We’ll give you a timeline and cost estimate for the design, development, marketing, and delivery of a finished, professional product. 

You’ve approved your proposal, now let’s get you into…


Once both parties approve and sign the digital proposal it’s time to get to work! We like to use Basecamp to maintain a centralized space for everyone involved in a project to share ideas, files, milestones, and to-do lists. Basecamp is a powerful tool to streamline projects efficiently and most importantly maintain a clear channel for communication without chasing multiple email threads.

Design Mockups

Our design team will create mockups of how your mobile app can look. By providing us feedback we’ll find a design that matches your vision, values, and addresses your business objectives. Once we have your approval on a design, we start bringing it to life. Every step of the way we’ll be providing updates via Basecamp and will always be available via live chat, phone, or email.

If all is good, we’ll begin…

Project Development

Once we’ve found a design that you like, we begin coding and bringing that vision to life. During this process, you’ll receive regular progress updates, and easily be able to reach us with questions even if you just want to brainstorm. The internal coding will be search engine optimized so Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines can easily find SEO important elements such as structured data, titles, keywords, descriptions, alternative text, and tags.

Last, but certainly not least…

Final Review

Following coding and testing, we’ll present the development product to you for the final evaluation. We’ll provide you with training so you understand the way your mobile app works, whether it’s content management based or a custom coded app. Upon completion, sitemaps for your mobile app will be submitted to the major search engines, social media integrated, and Webmaster & Analytic accounts will be created so you can monitor the growth and success soon to be yours.
