How we build your MVP

Building an minimum viable product does not have to be a headache. Here are the steps to getting started and an in-depth look at our project lifecycle.

How do you get started?

The process begins with an idea. Your idea. We can only help you if you have a good grasp of what the app will do and the goals that will be accomplished. This way we can avoid any headaches, unnecessary invoices and wasted time than shifting the idea in the middle of the project.

Here are a couple basic questions that will help you make sure that you know your product and where you want to go with it.

  • What is the app's purpose?
  • Who's the main audience?
  • Are there similar apps on the marketplace?

Don't worry if you haven't gotten it all figured out yet. We can consult you on the best course of action to things like: what App Store to release on (Android or iOS), naming your app, and more.

How do we get started?

Once you pass the baton to us, we will be more than excited to get started implementing your idea. We'll discuss the most essential features to include in the MVP and our UI/UX designers will then craft up prototypes of your app. Wireframes allow us to plan out every detail of your app once you approve of them, we move on to development.

It is much easier to quickly build something simple first and then add to it. Our goal will be to create the most basic version of your app. The goal here is to release the app as soon as possible to allow you to start getting user feedback.

From there, we can always release updates to add more features to your app based on what your users want. We want this process to be simple and effortless, and we'll keep you informed every step of the way.

Time & Money

The timeline depends on each project, but our goal is to have a working copy of your app on the App Store within 3 months.

We can charge per project, per feature, or per hour depending on the project and the client's preference. We base the cost on the types of features you require and the amount of hours it will take to complete. Use our app cost calculator for a free quote.

Project Lifecycle


The whole process starts with you. When you bring your brilliant idea to Nova Pursuits, it doesn't have to be perfect. We'll help you formulate the best strategy to implement your idea with a smart and appropriate solution. Along with that, we'll walk you through our process and assure you that we believe in 100% transparency with everything that we do.

This is the fun part. Once the concept has been clearly defined, it is time for us to create detailed wireframes to bring your idea to life. Here at Nova, we pride ourselves on creating products that feature beautiful designs that are easy to use. Our designers focus on the end-user, making sure that your customers have a seamless experience using every aspect of the application.

Once our designs are approved by you, our developers will get to work on development. Our frontend engineers and backend engineers will work hand-in-hand to create a secure, reliable product for your users.

Many agencies overlook this phase of the process, leading to frequent bugs and crashing. But not Nova Pursuits. We view the testing of a product to be the most important aspect of the whole timeline. For this reason, we have engineers performing quality assurance tests at every stage of development. Your application will be bulletproof once we're done with it.
