Dear [Client.Company],

If you think that mobile apps are only for large companies, you are mistaken! More and more smaller businesses are hopping onto the mobile trend, and realizing that companies need a mobile app more than just a mobile friendly website. These days you’ll notice that most businesses you interact with have a mobile app to help you better access their features, be it your corner coffee shop or the gym you visit.

With average American adults spending up to three (3) hours or more on their phone, a mobile application is the best place to reach a consumer. It puts you right in front of a consumer's eyes — literally — as an app icon, which means that on some subconscious level a mobile user will think about your company.

Having a mobile app also enables you to create a direct marketing channel to send notifications and offers straight to your customer's phone rather than through an email or web notification.

And it increases your brand recognition and value with customers, as it makes them perceive your brand as bigger than it is. This improves customer engagement — people will open your app just to check on new products or services, since it will become so much easier to do.

Hence, seeing a need for your company to enter into the mobile app segment, we at [Sender.Company] come to you with this mobile application development proposal in order to discuss the terms of developing a mobile app for your business.

At [Sender.Company], we believe that mobile apps are the best way to bring your brand into the digital age. Since our company’s beginnings, we have been heavily focused on building and beautifying mobile applications. Our team is made up of the best and brightest mobile app developers that have time and again proven their deep intelligence in executing mobile app solutions.

If you have any questions or inquiries, please feel free to reach out to me personally at [Sender.Email] or [Sender.Phone].



[Sender.Title], [Sender.Company]

This mobile application development agreement shall be deemed effective as of (Insert Date) by and between the following parties:

  1. [Sender.FirstName][Sender.LastName] (Developer) and

  2. [Client.Company] (Company).


The Company has requested the development of an application meeting the standards contained within this agreement.

The Developer is engaged in the making of such applications and holds all the necessary tools to deliver the needed results of this agreement.


The Company wishes to engage the Developer for services as an independent contractor for the sole purpose of designing the software contained within this mobile application development agreement.

The Developer is, for the sake of this mobile application development agreement, an independent contractor and under no condition shall be considered an employee of the Company.


The Company has appointed the Developer to perform the services pertaining to the development of this mobile application as described below.

[Sender.Company]’s Process

We normally estimate a time period of 16-20 weeks to successfully create an app. Throughout our entire process, we will stay in touch with you and ensure that you are updated on the timeline and progress of your new mobile app.

Our process is as follows:

1. Proposing The App

This is step 1. We provide you with an overview of our services and the timeline. We also give you an estimated price along with a cost breakdown for each section of the app.

2. Research And Analysis

Once we have an idea of what you are looking for in your app, we do a thorough research of your references and the industry you work in so we can create an app that will fit your needs. We analyze your requests and form a template and mockup of what the app would look like.

3. Approving The First Mockup

Once the first mockup is approved we will begin the process of coding the app. We do this by starting with a wireframe design and filling in with details to give it a more comprehensive, more thought-out approach.

4. Front End Technology

Next we build the front end technology of the app. This will be the UI/UX elements that the end user would see and interact with. This helps to give us a better overview of the app so that we understand what might need changing or further revisions, more work, etc.

5. Back End Technology

After this we build the back end technology of the app. This includes any specific integrations tied to the needs of your app, such as payment software or mapping technology. This step brings the app together and gets all the links up and running.

6. Testing

Before the app can be rolled out to customers we conduct a round of testing. This is usually done with the client to ensure that you have everything you require in the app before its debut. Any changes at this stage, however, would be minimal and only as needed, as massive changes would drastically increase the timeframe of the project.

7. App Launch

This is a stage where you feel like the app has been fully developed. Once all changes necessary have been completed we will assist you with rolling out the app to both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store and ensure it’s paired with a good description and title so that your customers can easily find you.

The Developer agrees to conduct weekly meetings with the Company to regularly review and establish the project’s current status.
