Today, the world has gone mobile. Every business out there is adopting Mobile Apps not only to bring forth their solutions & services but to increase their sales also. You will find foolproof stats to back this up where hundreds of apps are launched in the app market every single day.
This upsurge in the app development domain is due to the customers’ increasing demand of finding something innovative to simplify their day to day operations. Hence, as an entrepreneur, you need to be there where your audience is i.e. their mobile screens through mobile apps and if you are considering to develop an app soon you need to consider few things before you jump into the process of development.
Today, almost every business out there has adopted mobile apps for not just only showcasing their products and services but also to add to their ever-expanding audience base. Well, you can get more concrete proofs by regarding the current figures of the app market which sort of speaks for themselves where every single day hundreds of mobile apps are released on both Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
And if you too want to join the bandwagon of developing apps (as that’s where your most audience is) you have to follow a dedicated mobile app development process to develop a mobile app that gets your business running well in your respective niche’s market. But first let’s see what you should be considered before developing a mobile app:
Defining the App Idea
Well, it might seem like a trivial point to mention but you need to have a solid app idea for developing an app as well as to stay in the market in the long run.
You should be able to define your app goals i.e. able to answer questions such as: What’s the overall goal of the app? , What the app is intended to do? What solutions does the app give? Know whether you are looking to expand your customer base or looking to generate new revenue streams.
Once you know what you want out of your app, prioritize it and work on it accordingly.
Defining target users
The next and one of the important step in an app development process is to identify the target users i.e. who will be using your app. Not only this, you also need to understand what they generally expect out of apps like yours, their requirements and the technology they use.
You need to explore the platforms they use and accordingly understand their user experiences.
Building a user base
How would you know what your users really want? Well, you need to communicate with your target users so that you can really understand what they look for in a mobile application. You never know while you are out there discussing issues that users generally face you might come across a breakthrough solution for their problems.
In order to survive in the market today and that too for a longer time period, you need to adopt MVP (minimum viable product) i.e. release that version of the app that defines your app objective as a whole.
Do not make the mistake of including all functionalities in the app and releasing it at once. Include only the basic but core features of your app in your first version release and then add efficient upgrades to attract and retain your users.
With MVP you get to enter the market early and that too spot on.
This is perhaps the most important aspect to consider before developing an app. You need to get everyone on the same page i.e.
whoever is involved in the development process. Developing wireframes will make sure that there are fewer errors and the development process stays on track.
Choosing the “Platform” :
When you are planning to develop a mobile app you need to choose the platform (be it iOS, Android, etc.) wisely. Before you go for any platform know where your target users will be and then choose accordingly.
You obviously wouldn’t want to end up developing an app for the wrong user base.
If you fail to deliver exceptional UI/UX, your whole app idea and app release can go south. An app’s UI/UX is the most important factor behind an app’s success.
If you want your app to be successful then you must understand the difference between UI and UX. Both need to counteract each other.
Stats indicate that most of the users do not return to an app just because it wasn’t appealing and user-friendly.
Planning App updates
When you release the first version of your app, it should be a kind of sneak-peek of what awaits ahead. Users will certainly re-engage with your application when offered frequent app updates.
See that you don’t release the updates too often as the users might feel overwhelmed with it. Plan your updates wisely as they can become a deciding factor when it comes to user engagement and user retention.
This is also one of the most important aspects that you should consider before developing an app. Analyze your competitors’ apps – try to understand where they lack in serving the users – know what the users’ demands and expectations are.
When you will consider these points you can come up with a viable solution which can make your app distinct in the app market.
Hence, keep these above-mentioned points in mind before you nosedive in developing any application. You obviously would want an app that your users appreciate and which adds value to your business and thus, see that you consider these aspects before starting out on your Mobile App Development process.
