Mobile App Development Program

  • Plan–Build a mobile strategy, see what other agencies have done, use new acquisitions tools to find top mobile developers.
  • Develop–Create great mobile apps and sites using mobile user experience guidelines. Jump start development by leveraging pre-existing code.
  • Test–Make sure your app works on all devices by leveraging automated and in the wild testing support. Test for security & accessibility.
  • Launch–Let people know yours is an official government app by registering it. Get your app in the app stores and leverage API’s for promoting your apps.

Plan

Test

Develop

  • Create mobile-enabled websites with responsive design and full multimedia capabilities with Sites.USA.gov.

  • Get your mobile products designed right, from the beginning, using the  Mobile Gov user experience tools.

Launch

  • Use the federal friendly Terms of Service agreements and get your app in the app stores
