What is Our Process of Selecting and Evaluating Top 10 App Design Firms in USA for Our List?

When it comes to determining something it is highly important for one to do extensive research. Therefore, our team goes the extra mile in order to determine what each App Design Company has to offer and where that company stands in the industry.

We have come up with a unique methodology of selecting and evaluating top and best app design companies in order to mention them in our list. Continue reading on to see what our process looks like!

Affordable and Best Mobile Application Design Companies Website

We take a look at the app design firm’s website first. As a website can tell a lot about a company/business, we make sure to take note of how good the website is and see whether the firm has experience of 2 or more years in this field. Even though a new and affordable app design firm may perform really well, we prefer selecting those firms that have more experience in this field. 

Portfolio Checkup  

Once we’ve evaluated the firm’s website, the next step is to evaluate the portfolio. We take a closer look at the work the best and affordable mobile application design firms in the USA has done. This helps us check each and every previous app the agency has created. We keep an eye out to see where the agency is lacking originality and creativity as well. We do this because we only mention app design agencies that are unique, creative, and innovative in their app designing skills.

Of course, evaluating the work itself isn’t sufficient. We must go deeper into each project to determine how creative, innovative, and unique their work is. Therefore, we download the apps the affordable mobile application design firms have created in order to further study their designs and determine the quality of their work.

What Makes An Top 10 App Design Firms in USA Great?

Well, when it comes to determining what makes the best and top app design companies great, it is essential to take a look at the firm’s design process. Therefore, once we download the app design company’s previously created apps, we begin to evaluate its design process. Below, we have mentioned the aspects we look into when evaluating the design process.

Market Research & User Research

Regardless of what industry it may be, for any company that wants to stand out and solve the consumer’s concern by providing an A-grade solution, excellent market research is crucial. Therefore, we aim to only and always select those top and best mobile application design firms that are keen on doing excellent market research in order to come up with an app that actually provides the consumer something valuable. A company that does proper market research always comes up with creative, innovative, and unique app designs.

Other than this, the affordable and best app design companies must focus on user research. This is because with the help of user research an app designing agency can understand what the user not only wants but needs as well. All the app designing agencies we’ve mentioned on our list conduct surveys and workshops in order to clearly determine what the user’s needs are. If we notice any weak points in the market research and user research strategies of an top app design companies, we make sure to cancel them out.


Many of the top 10 mobile app design firms understand the purpose of wireframing. Basically, it is generally used in order to layout the content and functionality on a page that considers the user’s needs and also the user’s journey as well. Experienced and best mobile app design companies use wireframing in the early stages of the app development process in order to establish the standard structure of the page before any visual design or content is included. Wireframing provides an understanding of what user interface elements will be needed in the end/final version of the app. Top mobile app design companies prefer using professional tools such as Adobe XD, Sketch, or Photoshop.


Mobile app design firms on our list understand the purpose of prototyping. With the help of prototyping, affordable mobile application design firms can build an understanding of the app's look and feel. This helps in testing how customers will use and react to the UX design of the product. Prototyping used for usability testing gives the agency a good amount of time to make significant changes to the initial design of the app before the app reaches the development stage.

Style Guides

When it comes to creating the user interface when designing an app, a style guide can be quite useful. Best and top 10  app design firms use style guides as it helps them to outline the standards, principles, and rules that are needed to be followed. A style guide helps an app designing agency to enhance the app’s digital appearance and also makes the design process easier.

User Interface and Perfection

When we seek the top 10 app design companies for our list, we are always looking for those that are able to design apps with perfection. In order for an app design firm to do this, they must be able to make relevant changes according to UI trends, user preferences, and other elements/factors that might influence the app to make a statement in the industry.

Expert at iOS & Android App Design Companies in USA

All the top app design companies mentioned on our list specialize in both iOS and Android app designs. Since iOS and android have precise features that can have an impact on the usability and perception of an app, therefore, an app designing agency should be experts at designing both differently.

Extra Services  

When it comes to determining which affordable app design firms should be on our list, we always make sure the agency has the experience, good market/user research, and provides additional services. When evaluating promising best and affordable app design companies for our list, we ensure to see whether they provide extra services such as app development and app marketing. However, we also take a deeper look into these additional services to ensure that when it comes to providing these services, each top 10 app design firms is an expert at app development and app marketing. Therefore, in order for us to determine how good the app development and app marketing services are, we have designed a research method that is similar to our research design for app designing agencies. 

Affordable Services

The last step for us to determine whether the app design firms are perfect for our list is to ensure the packages they offer are affordable/reasonable. Any affordable app design agency offering app designing, development, or marketing services at prices that aren’t confirmed or not fixed have to be cut loose. We understand that many top 10 mobile app design companies charge by the hour or have fixed pricing according to the package. However, when finalizing the best and affordable mobile app design companies, we make sure they are clear with the pricing strategy and what it includes.
