Technology has this interesting trait of changing itself every fortnight and with the launch of new apps and new processes, there is no doubt to the fact that this trend will be a natural factor in the virtually driven world. Smartphones have become so integrated part of our lives that many feel uncomfortable without a cell phone. An enterprise application or popular mobile games, no matter what kind of apps running/operating on smartphones. Without a doubt, the users have accepted the fact that apps are the way to get the most of the smartphones. So exactly how do they develop these mobile applications?
Innovation is one of the driving factors that has contributed to this change. And this has led to the launch of many new apps that we are using today. Thousands of mobile applications are submitted to Apple and Google on daily basis. And if being in the finest group of apps is your goal, then here are a few tips we have gathered after delivering more than 25 apps for OS platforms.
Have an idea or an issue: As everyone knows every elite app starts out with an idea. And successful entrepreneurs solve problems in a way that we could not have imagined. So, additionally, look for the problems and create an idea of how the problems can be solved with your app. Think about the options that your app can outdo. You can validate the need for your app (idea) by using the Google Keyword Planner tool to look for the number of people seeking out what you’re trying to do. The next thing on your plate should be how your app can solve the problem itself, and how better you can solve it in comparison to other available options that are out there.
Prerequisites: If you want to create a basic android app, you should have basic knowledge in coding languages like JAVA, C, Kotlin. Once you have received the validation on concept/idea to showcase or implement your app, you can start your journey with the wireframing to make an Android app.
Layout the flow & Wireframing: In this step, you detail your product into a document. When putting your ideas down on paper, remember to be as detailed as possible. Structure the app from end-to-end. There should be proper attention on the graphical elements, navigation, features and the functionality of the app. When the flow and wireframing are structured properly then your developer will clearly understand your expectations and this will also make sure that your app development company is in sync with your business strategy.
Remove extra features: From the flow, layout and features document you prepared, start sorting out the features that are extra and can be removed. Keep only the core value of your app idea. Skip the features in the first version that are extra or nice to have and can always be added later as an update. This will not only keep your initial development cost low but also help you get to market quicker.
App Design: Design is the element that attracts people. Design is more than just looks of your app, it’s about how a user will experience the app. While designing make sure that all the specifications based on wireframing are covered.
Development & Deployment phase: Once you are done with the wireframe and then added the images and the designs of the app, now it is time to start the coding as per the requirements. Concentrate on the user interface aspect of the app, where several techniques are deployed simultaneously to code the usability and overall experience of the app. Integrate analytics as it helps you to track down user engagement, downloads for your app. You can use free tools such as flurry, Localytics. As the app is done and tested, submit the app to the Google Play Store for approval.
Post-Deployment: Once your app goes live on the app store, the first set of customers' usage and behaviour will give you insight into how to improvise your app. In this first version of your app, you offered only the limited core features. Now you can evaluate and update the remaining features after considering the feedback from the analytics.
These tips are not rules to build an app but more like a guideline to create your app in the most efficient way with a smooth process. Building and submitting the app is just 90% of the app development process. Getting customers is where the challenge lies.
