Have a cutting edge app idea but don't know where to begin?


To ensure high-quality, consistent app creation and delivery, we use a three-step development process.

Great ideas are the foundation of great apps. Our teams can help your company refine and expand your ideas to create a functional framework for your new mobile application — one that will capture user interest and keep users coming back.

Once we’ve got a solid starting point, it’s time to dig into the design. From prototyping to wireframing to coding and testing, we recognize the importance of every step in the app design process. Skip one, and you’ll spend more time fixing the problem after launch than it would take to solve it up-front. By taking a measured and meticulous approach to design, we keep your app development on track, on time and on budget.

Even great apps are often overlooked in oversaturated application marketplaces. Don’t let your app fall by the wayside; instead, leverage our execution services to find the ideal platform(s) for distribution and create a reliable monetization strategy.

What We Do

What does a mobile app developer in San Diego do? At the most basic level, app developers help your company turn ideas into action. But that’s just the beginning.

At Dogtown, we recognize the multi-faceted nature of mobile applications and prioritize the critical components that help them get noticed. This starts with UI/UX design. Why? Because the quickest way to sink your app is to have great content backed by inconsistent UI/UX. Our teams have the experience to consider both programmer and user perspectives to build apps that keep people coming back.

We’re also here to help with the heavy lifting required to code mobile apps. From initial design to testing, testing and more testing, Dogtown Media makes sure your app offers the ideal balance of form and function. Consider iOS coding: Given the strict requirements of the App Store and the expectations of Apple device users, having experienced San Diego iPhone app developers on your side is critical for success.
