Step 1: Get an idea or a problem
You need to have a beginning before doing something; in this case, inspiration of course. Be it an idea or a problem. Problems are everywhere and there is always a room for solutions to it.
Step 2: Identify the need
The second thing you need to ask yourself is the validity of the app you want to develop. Google Keyword Planner can help you get the figures you need. You can also create a landing page that highlights your app idea for the public to see and measures those who are interested in it.
Step 3: Lay out the flow and features
Afterwards, you proceed with mapping your app idea out on paper. Things will be a lot better to pitch once it is on paper. You can see it clearly for yourself too and your developer will have clear idea on what your expectations are for your app.
Step 4: Remove non-core features
Next, go through your papers again and determine whether the features you have lined up are the ones you feel necessary to have in your app. Only go for the core value of the idea, do not jumble up the entire thing or you will face issues on cost and the time it will take for development. The other features can be added later on as updates.
Step 5: Put design first
To make sure your app idea sells, you have to put yourself in the user’s seat. You need to take great considerations in the design and graphics put in your app. So, be sure to take designs and graphic seriously and/or hire a developer that put those two elements first in their list.
Step 6: Hire a designer/developer
Go for talent. Seek development company with the knack for creativity and innovations. Do not forget to check their credibility on their work because your app idea will not manifest itself if you and your developer are not eyeing the same goal.
Step 7: Create developer accounts
You must register for a developer account with the respective app stores to be able to sell your app through their platform. Each app stores differ in account fees; thus, it is wise to scout through all that you can find and choose the best.
Step 8: Integrate analytics
Analytics help you track downloads, user engagement and retention for your mobile app. One tool that you can use for free is Flurry or Localytics that is available in both free and paid version.
Step 9: Get feedback quickly and improvise
Keep your eyes open for feedbacks and be fast for improvements. Once your app is available in store, the first wave of customer’s usage and behavior will give you the hint you need to enhance and improve your app. Improvements is always good, so do not be afraid about getting feedbacks.
Step 10: Introduce features
Your current app is equipped with only core features in it, but now, it is time to insert those extra features that you have left in your list. You will know whether the features are relevant or not through analytics and feedbacks.
