The increasing number of smart phone owners across the UK has created a huge opportunity in terms of a new way for businesses to communicate with their customers. Those who are not able to respond to this change in customer behaviour risk being left behind.
Businesses are able to provide information and process financial transactions using a mobile app. Apps can be simple or highly sophisticated, whatever functionality you require. With more and more people using their smart phone and tablet devices, and in most cases instead of computers, a mobile app could prove indispensable for you and your business and enable you to harness this massive potential market.
The internet changed everything, and now mobile internet access is changing everything once again – but much faster. According to Morgan Stanley Internet analyst Mary Meeker, we are now entering the fifth age of computing – and we are doing so faster than we entered the previous four. Meeker’s research team compared the adoption rates of Apple portable devices such as the iPhone and iPad to the take-up of AOL services in the early 1990s. Apple devices are being adopted 11 times faster than consumers connected to AOL and in turn downloading millions of apps every day.
LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS
Here at Hooper Design Gloucester we have a wealth of experience in mobile app design and this is evident in the work we produce.

We pride ourselves on producing bespoke mobile apps for our clients and ensuring that every app experience is a unique one. Hooper Design Gloucester creates professional, immersive and interactive mobile apps that open up engaging opportunities for people to interact with your brand. This increases the perceived value of your brand, and shows that you are at the cutting edge of your industry.
BESPOKE DOES NOT ALWAYS MEAN EXPENSIVE

If you are looking for a new mobile app then Hooper Design Gloucester offers everything you need to get the job done.
MOBILE APP DESIGN
Creating an app works in two main stages and these stages can be compared to the process of building a house. Before any building work can begin the house first needs to be designed, only then can the cost of the build be determined, it works much the same way when building mobile apps.
Firstly we need to fully understand the end user experience and how the app will be navigated, we achieve this by designing wireframes which illustrate the user interface, structure and navigation of the app. Once the wireframes are finalised we then begin to design the look of the app, incorporating branding and all the visual elements outlined in your brief.
Once the mobile app has been fully designed and wireframed we can then use these designs to establish the development level and time it will take to build the app which in turn will dictate the mobile app build cost.
MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT
Once the mobile app design process is complete we are then able to quote for the development (build) of the app.
Our wireframes and layered designs are totally transferable and universal, so feel free to shop around and if you can find mobile app developers more competitively priced than us (which is unlikely) ;-) you are welcome to take the wireframes and layered designs which any mobile app developer will be able to work from.
As with all our creative work you will be involved throughout the development process from start to finish. You are able to see the project progress as well as review and sign off at each stage using simple and intuitive online prototyping software.
