Process Of Mobile App Development
Both Android app development and iOS app development are similar processes that start with a great idea. The first step is to define your goals, from the overall purpose of the app to figuring out who the app appeals to in the marketplace. Next, you want to start working on what you app will look like, this can be done with just simple sketches or outlines. Finally, before you actually start developing the application you must conduct research. This is the important step, as it will let you know if the app already exists, if there is a market, and it will let you know what the technical requirements are for your app!
Programming for an app can be a little more difficult, but do not get discussed. The part of the job can be outsourced, if you are unsure how to program. It is important to treat you app development like any other freelance project, have a timeline, monitor progress, and establish a contract. However, it's not that hard to figure out how to make your app a reality. There are many prototype tools online, where you can see what your app will look like with graphics. This is the time when you can test the overall functionality of your app prototype to determine if it works. This prototype will contain all the information on your APIs, servers, and data diagrams, which will all be useful to the developer.
Now, that you have properly defined your app, a developer can get a work on the databases and storage solutions for it to run. During this phase, it is important to start up signing up for an account at the app marketplace you are developing you app for, whether it's Android or iOS.
Now for the run part, the design process is where you app comes to life. Take your sketches and turn them into app "skins", which are all the individual screens need to make the app. After the development and design phases are finished, it is now time to test your real app. It is now time to incorporate any improvements or revisions from your test drive. Refine all the important details, to make sure it works correctly on the appropriate platform.
When it comes to releasing your new app, each marketplaces has different policies when it comes to publishing. Android will allow your app into the Google Play marketplace but will wait awhile before reviewing it. Apple is completely different they have the right to review and approve your app before it is on the marked.
