Mobile development approach

DTL have adopted the “Don’t Make Me Think” methodology first inspired by Steve Krug in his guide to web development. The book’s premise is that a good software program or web site should let users accomplish their intended tasks as easily and directly as possible. 

The same principles apply to developing Mobile applications where productivity gains come through a smart prototyping process adopting a fail-fast approach to development and gathering good user insights in the testing process.

One of our most successful applications to date was to build an LPG bottle ordering application trying to navigate the least number of clicks to fulfil and order with repeatability enabling the process to take less than 20 seconds for reordering.
