From Idea to Reality

Do you have a great idea for an app, but just not sure where to start or how to get things going?  Whether you’re a start-up or an enterprise, Red Foundry can help you evolve, shape, structure, and define your idea through a Discovery and Design phase project.   So you can get your idea out of the idea phase and into reality.

Let's Collaborate

Mobile-Optimized Methodology


It all starts with Discovery…  Defining the app’s purpose, features, differentiators, monetization, and release plan to get things rolling.


Written specifications of how the solution will work.  This includes UI/UX, data design, and technical architecture.  A very collaborative phase.


Coding and configuring the apps and backend based on the design specifications.  Integrating with APIs and other third-party services.


Rigorous testing to ensure that the solution performs as expected.  Including QA, device testing, regression, and user acceptance.


It’s now time to get the app out of the lab and into the real world.  Compiling the app, bundling with distribution certificates, and app store submission.


Our AppCare Maintenance service proactively keeps your app healthy in a world where everything is changing all the time.
