Do you own a business and want to build a mobile app. Where to start? Do you have some technical experience? You don’t need to worry as in this article we will list few things that you need to know before developing your mobile app.
Do Your Research
First of all, you have to do your research about the apps that already out there. Apps similar to your idea are a great way to start. Download them and use them for some time. Try to find things that already there and what can be done more. You also need to get help from a professional to know whether your idea is feasible. The time you will consume on research will help you get better results.
Every entrepreneur thinks that they have the best idea in the market. Every day 8000 apps are released on the market, not all of them able to get featured. Most of them fall after some time from the Play and App store. You can see that the person with the idea loses their time and money.
So, it is essential to consider few things before introducing your application. Does your app provide a unique solution? Is it a suitable option for your targeted audience? To find answers, you have to make sure that your app is unique in some way. If it provides value, then it will be able to attract consumers.
Android or iOS
If you have a small budget and want to introduce your app as soon as possible. Then you should choose one platform either iOS or Android. If you are still not sure then do more research. Choosing the right platform is also an important aspect of your mobile app. You need to know what type of device; your targeted audience is using.
Once, you are sure which platform or both will work best for you. You need to choose between hybrid, native, or web apps. You can check this blogpost to learn more.
Time & Resources
Another essential thing is to decide the launch date of your app. It is better to announce the date early and try to create a buzz around. The idea is to get people to wait and be excited about your app.
In such a case, you need to plan the time frame for the design, development, scope, and testing of your app. You need to start a conversation with your technical teams about the launch date. They can give you the exact time frame for the entire project.
While working on the time frame, you also need to set a budget. The budget of an app depends on the complexity, resources, infrastructure, etc. The price of an app can go from $10,000 to $0.6 million. You also need to keep in mind that the final price can vary depending on the size of the project.
You need to keep these few things in mind while developing your app. There are many other factors too such as the maintenance of the app.
