Developing an app is not an easy task, it includes a complete mobile app development life cycle, by following which we get a mobile app which should be fully compatible with the multiple devices and meet client’s requirements. As a premiere mobile app development company in Bangalore, India, we explain you mobile app development process with 6 steps it includes:
Mobile App Development Process Steps:
Strategy- First of all, you need to find the reason for developing an app, why there is a need to develop an app. To get where you are going, you have to know where you are. Same thing applies to the mobile app development process. Firstly, collect all the information regarding the mobile app which includes its specifications, clients’ requirement, and targeted users.
Design- After gathering all the client’s requirements and app specifications with a strategic plan, it’s time to move to the next phase which is design phase. In this phase, one of the most important points is to focus on the layout of the app. How a user will interact with the app, it means the user can use it on a smartphone as well as on a tablet (if required). So, the design of an app should fully be compatible with both devices. Based on the target user and type of app, the design should be. For example: – if we are going to develop an app for a school, then its interface and layout are not so bold and its layout must be relevant to education.
Development- We can call this phase one of the most important parts of the development cycle. In this phase, the actual app gets movements and all its functionalities start working. Whatever we want from an app to perform, all of its coding have been done here. Before starting development, one thing that we must keep in our mind is that we are developing an app for cross-platform or for a specific one. Based on this decision, we can easily choose our IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Each IDE has some advantages and disadvantages, for instance, iOS apps (built using Xcode) are so much faster as compared to another platform app.
Testing: In this phase of mobile app development, the app is tested for different bugs and errors. In testing, two types are there; one is manual testing and another is automatic testing, based on the requirements we can choose any of them. There are some popular testing software such as iPhoney, MobiOne and Google Android Emulator. By using all of these tools we can develop an app which is free from any type of errors, and run smoothly in the real devices.
Marketing- As we already discussed in the above paragraph that there are nearly 2 Million mobile apps in Play Store, then why a user needs our app, what is the new features in this app, which are not present in all previous ones. We all know that many apps released daily on the internet, then how a user will able to know that your app is going to be released and it has many amazing features. A solution for all these problems is marketing, by using various marketing techniques such as SMO (Social Media Marketing), Blog outreach, Email outreach etc.
Maintenance & Updating- After successfully developing an app, our responsibility won’t get finished. In the era of technology, every day there is something new for all of us. To engage your customer with your app, you must provide updates based on current technology market or other competitors. As well as, in the future if some technical issue will raise in your app then you must solve it to make your app run smoothly.
It is not wrong to say that mobile apps are changing our technology experience and increasing challenges for the developers to constantly develop best apps for the users. By following all these five phases while developing an app, you will definitely be able to develop user engaging apps.
