Android O & Java – Mobile App Development | Beginning to End
Why should you build a mobile app? Because mobile apps have become so common place and popular that most people can’t remember not having them. Of course, it goes without saying that most businesses need them, because the majority of consumers surf the Internet and buy products and services via their smartphones. Here’s how you can build a profitable mobile app for your business.
Do you want your app to entertain? Do you want it to sell products or services? The first step is deciding what you want your app to do. The true intent of your app should be the same as the purpose of your business – to solve a problem for your target market.
Once you’ve decided on the intent and functionality of your app, decide which features you need and how their functionality will flow. Choose a wire framing tool or a flowchart to lay out the best way for customers to move smoothly through your app from beginning to end.
Concentrate on your app’s design next. Design is about more than the graphics and look of your app. It’s also about the feel that draws users in and the user’s experience. After assuring a good user experience, choose an app hosting platform, like Android, Apple or Java. Choose your platform based on the needs of your ideal client, not the price of the platform. Next, make sure you set up easy-to-integrate, easy-to-track, and easy-to-use analytics. Do not skip this step, because you definitely want to track the number of downloads, user engagements, and customer retention data.
Before you roll out your app to the public, engage with a few beta testers and ask for helpful feedback that will make the public launch more appealing and successful. This is also a good opportunity to introduce new features, re-evaluate unpopular features, and fix any malfunctioning parts.
Building an app correctly is worth the time and effort you’ll put into it. The real challenge comes when you start to market your app and find customers. Choosing your app’s purpose and intent based on the demand from your target market makes both steps easier and more profitable.
