Our Mobile App Design & Development Process



With your mobile app being the most valuable asset, the first step to developing your mobile app is to understand your brand, business needs, and pain points by having collaborative workshops. From there, we'll develop a timeline and project plan to launch your mobile app.



After understanding what your brand and business goals are, we create low to mid fidelity wireframes to visually understand the user flows. This is a crucial step to ensure the user experience is optimal prior to start the mobile app design.



A good mobile app starts with a good user experience and design. Our design team delivers on modern, human-centered design to ensure your mobile app is beautiful yet simple to use.



The app design is ready, everyone is excited to build and ship your mobile app. A kickoff meeting with the development team is scheduled so that we can start our first fortnightly sprint. At the end of each sprint, our team does a "show & tell".



After a thorough User Acceptance Testing phase, we prepare your mobile app for a successful launch. Our team is with you every step of the way to ensure your mobile app is launched smoothly.



Your mobile app is now listed in the Apple & Google stores. Our Melbourne app development team is there to provide support, implement new features and release bug fixes as required.

When it comes to out-sourcing and partnering with a technology vendor, Rocket Lab is top of mind. 
Julien, Jen and the team are incredibly detailed and thorough whenever they’re engaged in a project. And, they do so at velocity. For Superloop, they have delivered some of the biggest, and highest profile projects that we have done in the last 12 months. I look forward to our continued relationship and what we can continue to achieve in the future.

Kim Janson
Superloop - Head of Design, Sydney

We had the pleasure of working with Rocket Lab team for the development and launch of the website and app. With a tight launch timeline to comply with, Julien assigned 4 talented front end engineers with the appropriate skillsets to help us get both the app and website across the finish line on time. The guys worked together very well with our internal resources and blended into our process seamlessly. We were very impressed with the level of skill from each of the engineers, while their teamwork, professionalism and dedication was exceptional.

Mathew Paule - GM, Sydney

Rocket Lab's ability to help define and execute our business through software in a timely fashion, has been a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to work with. They guided us through the launch of our MVP and due to their expertise in developing web & app products, our business has been going from strength to strength!

Julien and his team are a real pleasure to work with. They are well rounded with a solid understanding of design/user experience best practices as well as diving deep under the hood with solid web and app development capabilities. Don't think twice about working with this super responsive crew of forward thinkers :)

We have a long standing partnership with Rocket Lab who provide Webjet with critical strategic and development services for our front-end websites. The partnership has grown over the years and we are delighted with the innovation and output we continue to receive from the team.

David Galt

Rocket Lab has been one of James Hardie’s digital partners for the past 12 years. This tenure is a testament of their customer centric approach, technical nous and all round ‘nothing’s a problem’ attitude. Over the years Rocket Lab have seamlessly integrated with James Hardie in delivering a number of key projects for the business that to this day continue to be critical to the success and functionality of our operations.

Luke Cheng - Customer Marketing Manager, Sydney

Rocket Lab helped digitally transform our business by moving from our initial MVP website/platform built in India to a scalable website and architecture built on the latest JS tech stack. Our business has hundreds of suppliers and thousands of customers so we needed a highly robust structure and that’s exactly what was delivered by Julien, Jen and the RL development team. The bonus was that they were great to work with! We strongly recommend them for your web & app development needs.

How much does it cost to develop an app in Melbourne?
a nice green triangle

The cost of mobile app development in Melbourne will vary based on your requirements.

The average cost to build a mobile app in Melbourne is anywhere from $100,000 to $300,000. The exact cost will vary based on the design, features, integrations and backend capabilities. The location of the app development team will also impact costs. The salaries of Melbourne app developers are at an all time high. This explains why most local companies like ourselves will be more expensive than the competition. Make sure to check where the software development is located as it is not uncommon to see companies charging local rate when the team is actually overseas.

Before getting a quote to build a mobile app, we strongly recommend going through a discovery phase where the wireframes, user stories and overall UX & UI design are defined clearly.
