Developing an app begins with a truckload of excitement. New ideas, amazing designs, fascinating features and functionalities, there are so many stimulating things that make app development an amazing project to take on. Like all things however, there comes a middle phase where matters slow down, designs need to be reviewed, features need to be rethought, code needs to be tested and a bevy of other technicalities that are crucial, yet less than thrilling.
This plateau often leads to a dampening of spirits among teams trying out app development for the first time. Knowing the journey of an app’s development cycle and all the steps it entails can facilitate a better understanding of the process, helping clients set the right expectations from their development teams.
The first thing a successful app needs is a problem. Yes, that’s right. Where there’s a problem, there’s an app with a solution. So before you delve into app development, find a real problem your target audience is dealing with, that no one has an effective solution to yet.
Not always requiring a reinventing of the wheel, this could be as simple as doing the same old thing like the morning news, but making it infinitely better than anyone else in at least one area – like offline reading, reading out text, or curated to individual interests. The idea is, either bring in an unprecedented service, or provide a simple service, but with a difference.
