Agile software development means working in short and repetitive cycles. «Agile» signifies the ability of moving quickly and efficiently, which, in software development means dividing a large task into a number of short phases of work. While going through these phases, analysis, adjustments and reassessments are made.
To dive deeper into the question of Agile software development, you are welcome to read our detailed article on making your agile team work.
Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is most often the first version of the product which has just enough core features to make the product work. The author of the « Lean Startup » Eric Ries defines the MVP as « that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort.
On how to make sure you are in the right direction with your MVP, we invite you to read our detailed article about MVP development.
One of the first questions which comes to mind when it comes to developing a new product is the cost. The very rough answer would be «around $15K». The more exact answer will depend on what exactly you want your application to do and what is the final goal you want to accomplish.
For a thorough breakdown of the app development cost, you can estimate the possible price tag on your future application based on our article about potential expenses.
The short answer is: If you work with us, then yes, you will. Even though in many countries, Netherlands included, according to the law the code belongs to those who wrote it, we make sure in our contracts that all the Intellectual Property belongs to the client.

First of all, we highly recommend you go with a company which has extensive experience in nearshoring and remote work.

We encourage and we are extremely happy when our clients work with to get on the same page of the final vision of the product. First of all, we are avid believers in Agile software development process which exists exactly for implementing ideas and changes along the way.
To make sure all the parties are in agreement about the end product, we use Story Mapping — a tool which allows all the parties to participate in the organization and brainstorming of the ideas.
Story Mapping is a tool developed by Jeff Patton which allows to analyze potential user behavior, implying that there are several types of user personas who can use the product differently. It is a very flexible and simple practice where each member of the team our client can predict a user journey by using simple tools (such as a whiteboard with stickers or a user-friendly online program) and plan out every possible action which may take place while a certain type of user opens the application. We have developed the idea of Story Mapping in details in our article, and we highly recommend you join us in it.
Yes, and yes. Actually, this is the best way to proceed if you want to save resources, compared to native development. Cross-platform development is getting more and more popular these days for a few reasons. Using one coding language for different platforms is very efficient in terms of costs and time, and it also implies consistent behavior, same tools and a single codebase. For an in-depth exploration of cross-platform development using Flutter or React Native, please check our detailed article on the subject.

Yes, and no. Very often you are not your ideal client and the final result you have in mind may differ from what your customer needs.

The road you have mapped out in your mind might go in a completely different direction for your customer. What we can make happen is make sure that the final product corresponds to your client’s needs.
A clickable prototype is an interactive mock-up of your application. You need one if you want to test all the assumptions before actually writing the code. The more you test the prototype, the less modifications will be done during the development hours.
