A quick guide to mobile application development
Many developers are out there, trying to make the next big thing in the world of mobile applications. However, research shows that only one percent of mobile app development startups succeed. Mobile application development is an exciting venture, but it requires a lot of hard work, patience, skills, and knowledge.
Here’s a quick guide to making the challenges of mobile application development a bit easier.
Start by brainstorming
Like with everything else, brainstorming is the first crucial step in mobile application development. Grab a piece of paper and jot down ideas, no matter how crazy they are. Think “solution to a problem”. If the idea solves a problem, that’s a green light.
Some people often have this “the crazier, the better” mindset. But that’s not how it works. For an idea to work, it has to be a provider of a solution. An application is all about making something easier for the people who will use it.
Create a laundry list to polish the idea
Say you have identified an idea that shows a lot of potential. The next step is to establish the essentials. Pinpoint the target market by identifying their demographic and psychographic characteristics. Check if there are certain app features from your idea that the audience is already familiar with.
Knowing your market is important because it will give you the edge to make it through the sea of competitors. So, dig deep until each characteristic of the demographic is ingrained in your head so that you can easily put yourself in their shoes.
Choose the platform
Moving on to the next step involves the technical side of mobile application development. This includes choosing the platform that will make your application stand out as one of the most user-friendly applications out there.
This step is reliant on your knowledge of your target audience. It will determine how well you know them, their preferences, or how many of them are Android and iOS users. At the same time, bear in mind the pros and cons of the two. For instance, Google Play Store has fewer restrictions than Apple’s App Store. But, applications developed for iOS require simpler optimization.
Tap a developer
The most viable solution is to hire professionals who can handle the actual work for you. The creation process is just as fun without that much grueling because someone else will deal with the development challenges and other technical aspects.
