You want to create or redesign a professional mobile application, and you're wondering which approach to choose? Is it better to develop a hybrid application or a native application? Here are a few keys to help you see things more clearly.
A digital transformation carried out by the right people and the right methods is a successful digital transformation. MobileThinking accompanies its clients efficiently thanks to its team of experts and uses proven methods.
As we often say, it's not a question of revolutionizing everything at once, but of getting the machine up and running. So, when your company decides to take the plunge into digital transformation, it must keep in mind the final goal and first determine the easiest way to reach it.
Once a concrete project has been identified, it is necessary to think about how best to design it. Indeed, to succeed in a digital transformation implies establishing a strategy that understands the stakes of the organization, that takes into account the culture of the company and the working environment of its employees.
Digital transformation is vital! It is important to note that it is not necessarily a question of revolutionizing your entire SME/business in one year. You need to identify the sector that will benefit most from the digital transition, and which will have the most positive impact on the whole company.
This was the summary of these series of articles about growth hacker marketing. We hope that these series of articles helped you to grasp the complexity, but also the fascinating world of growth hacking.
At this point, the question we should carefully answer is: “do the users actually stick?”. This is one of the most important metrics. When you look for investors they will surely ask how many users did you acquire and how many of them are actually active and returning to your service over time
We now know that we must create the applications that fit our end users needs and that we need to find our own way to reach the first thousand of loyal and passionate users. In fact by now, it should be clear that the classic assumption “build it and they will come” does not work. You must acquire your users (your customers). Each of them has a cost and of course lower this cost is for you better it is. ‘Going viral’ is a natural step to achieve growth with measurable costs. In the ‘Finding your growth hack’ step you bootstrap your community of loyal users. With the ‘Going viral’ step you try to acquire as many users you can. How do you spread your product with the help of you core loyal and passionate users? To answer this question we give the floor to the ‘The old way’ and ‘The new way’!
Today we are discussing about ‘Finding your growth hack’ which is the most creative step of all. If in the ‘Product market fit’ step you need to be very factual (listen to your users more than your heart), in ‘Finding your growth hack’ you should be very creative and use the unique features of your product.
The result of a sprint can vary according to the challenge, but also according to the results of the interviews.

The Sprint started with a big challenge, a motivated team of experts and … not much more. On Friday, the team has already achieved a great deal of work creating promising solutions, choosing the best one and building it’s prototype, and all this in a collaborative way.

Thanks to the Storyboard we created on Wednesday, it is now possible to design the prototype of the service we design in the first 3 Sprint days. It is important to adopt the “Fake it” philosophy to turn your idea into a testable prototype. No need to think about the data structure at this point. […]
On the first two days of Sprint the team spends a lot of time understanding and creating! It is now time to make decisions, because it is impossible to create and test all the ideas. Fortunately, we have a series of exercises that will allow you to select the most compelling ideas with constructive criticism […]
Tuesday is dedicated to creation. Each participant must do a market study in order to collect as much information as possible and then let their imagination go wild. Create, sketch, draw multiple solutions, choose the best and then start again. You will see, it’s very fun.
During the first day of Sprint, the team will create a common knowledge base among all participants. Through various activities enabled by the facilitator, participants take ownership of Sprint’s long-term goal and reformulate it into hypotheses, obstacles and questions in order to map the project. In a few words, here is the list of Monday’s […]
The Design Sprint terminology is spreading rapidly over the past few months. Some use it as a marketing Buzzword, others as a business philosophy.

In this step the developers define the technology stack, the data model (database and co.), the interactions between server and client, and how to integrate the […]
Once you have the wireframes and a tested, validated, and refined prototype you should create the unique identity of your app. This is the job of app designers. They should create the app logo, decide upon the colors, fonts, and the overall look and feel of your app. To continue the analogy with your new […]
This step build upon four important concept: defining the user journey, wireframing, prototyping, and testing. The user journey is the scenario, the flow your users follow to achieve their goal by using your app. We like to call it: the golden path. It must be the core functionality of your app and have as little […]

The first version of your app should focus on doing one thing […]
