At eSignature, we often follow the agile principle of software development. Ultimately, it depends on the specific needs of the mobile app we are developing for each client. The agile approach to mobile app development focuses on customer involvement, flexible planning, and constant evaluation and of course risks management. As a result, mobile app development projects can be completed effectively and efficiently. We believe in regular communication with our mobile app clients to ensure the final product is exactly what is expected and needed.
Defining Agile Development
Agile development is defined as the ability to move quickly and easily; relating to a method of project management that is characterized by the division of tasks into short phases of work and frequent reassessment and adaptation of plans.
The practices of agile development simplify mobile app development so that the resulting mobile apps are adaptable after release. The theory of agile development is sound, and there are several common characteristics of agile development teams that help put the theory into practice. Simple design, ability of release in short period of time, extensive team cooperation, pair programing, testing, anticipating the needs for change, welcoming change and using it as an advantage are the list of procedures that are essential to agile development.
Moreover, it’s a process that requires a fair amount of planning and provides little room for flexibility. The problem for app developers, though, is that all that strict regulation, combined with the sequential nature of the waterfall method, means that there’s no way of knowing whether or not users will actually be interested in a product until it is complete.
Agile development isn’t about doing away with planning. It isn’t about being unfocused. It’s about making sure your team works in a way that allows it to make those pivots when they need to. Enhanced quality assurance and multiple test cycles of agile development provide all of the necessary ingredients for mobile apps to get there.
