At this stage, the prototype of the future application is assembled, the functionality is prescribed and the paths of user transition are built between the screens.

- Application development. We impose all elements of the application — i.e. We make a good application from good pictures. We also combine the server and client parts of the application so that it fully works.
- Testing application performance. We take a few days to test the finished application, create a correction table and fix all the errors found. If the client wants, we send him a test version of the application on approval.
- Debugging the application. When you design an application on the screen of a regular monitor, it is impossible to fully understand all the features of its live use. All applications are unique, and errors are possible with the first use. Normally, debugging takes about half the time from initial development.
- Application icon. We develop the application icon, because depending on how it is done, your application will be visible or not in the App Store and Google Play.
- The publication of the application. We check for compliance with all standards, technical requirements and publish.
