Mobile App Development

Are you planning to develop the next version of your Android or iOS app? Are you looking for a Mobile App Development Company? We’re here to give you a clear idea of what to look for before launching your app. The app development process involves a lot of planning and research. Below is the checklist that would help you to cover the important elements that would be necessary;

1.Business Objective

Understand the cause and purpose of the application you want to build and then define the business goals and target audience. Conduct thorough research about the industry. Create a product roadmap and analyse your competition too.

2. Discovery Phase

Analyze the targeted market and similar apps and their features offered. Hence, you can be a part of the associated company. Understand the troubles faced by your targeted group and get to know what all among these are being solved by the competitors.

3. Technology requirement

Analyse the behaviour of your targeted market and decide if it’s going to be android or iOS and if it needs Cloud-based infrastructure. If you have a native or hybrid app, find out how it’s different.

4. User Interface Details

Once you decide upon the above points, plan how it’s going to look like and feel like. Have a designed wireframe and decide the app orientation and if it’s ready for easy transition from landscape to portrait. Hire good UI/UX designers and finalise the app benchmark.

5. Development Criteria

Have a team of experts if you are building an in-house application or hire a mobile app development company. Set its cost range and also work on the backend development of the application.

6. Performance metrics

Infer how the app performs in case of low battery, less space etc., and if you would get a notification in case of server-side components. Also, come up with server-side components. 

7. Security

Take measures of safety from any potential data breaches. Have a secure socket layer incorporated in your project and ensure two authentications. Have an integrated payment gateway and comply with industry security standards like HIPAA or PCI DSS.

8. Testing Checklist

In this last stage, measure the outcome of your app development process and envision it before starting. Check if the app is performing the same on different devices and if it’s capable for the next device update. If it’s ready to scale to the next OS update, have a test plan like unit testing, QC testing or user acceptance testing.
