At Two Toasters, we strategize, design, and develop native iOS and Android mobile applications that are engaging, user-centric, and robust extensions of your brand. We take a holistic approach to creating new apps, combining thoughtful product strategy, smart design, and solid technical architecture. Craftsmanship is our source of pride throughout.
Developing a mobile application is a serious, long-term commitment. Too many apps in the market today have emerged in a vacuum and are built without empathy for users and an understanding of how to generate value. During Discovery, our design and development teams will conduct research into your existing products, customers, and the competitive landscape. We interview your users and various stakeholders to gain insight into user motivations and deepen our understanding of your product strategies. During an onsite session with your stakeholders, we engage in collaborative ideation sessions to clarify goals for your app and uncover opportunities for your mobile apps to engage and delight users. After our discovery sessions, we map out the user experience of the app and define a detailed scope for getting to market.

Taking what is generated from discovery, our seasoned team of designers will produce a comprehensive set of designs that are aesthetically stunning and functionally sensible. In conjunction with our development team, we plan out design in two-week sprints to efficiently organize output and set clear expectations for deliverables. We collaborate closely with the development team to create experiences that are mindful of best practices for common design problems and considerate of platform idioms. By walking through designs and animation prototypes as they are created we ensure that you are part of the design process and that the app is not only part of your brand, but also builds on it.
