Once you have an idea for a mobile App, it is time to start getting the wheels in motion. Mobile App development is often perceived as a long-winded never-ending project. However, our Top Tips for App Development cover 5 ways you can develop your App in a fast, efficient and affordable manner. Mobile App Development Tips we will cover…

1. Invest time in planning
2. Development timeframe
3. Preview as you build
4. TEST
5. Feedforward

1. Invest time in planning

Once you have got an idea in your mind for your App it is very easy to instantly get going without a real plan. No matter what type of App you are creating, it is important to have a clear concise plan. One of the most important questions to ask in the planning phase is ‘Why am I creating this App’ and ‘Why would someone use this App’. Without the answers to these two questions, you could be flying blind. There are literally millions of Apps available in the App store. However, 80% of them people haven’t and never will hear about. Start with your end customer in mind…

2. Mobile App Development timeframe 

This goes hand in hand with your planning stage. Whether you’re developing the App yourself or getting an external party to develop your App for you, it is crucial to have a clear time frame. If you don’t have set milestones and timeframes in place you can’t expect a finished product…We wouldn’t watch a sport without a scoreboard, so don’t start your project without a clear end goal and timeframe.

3. Preview as you build

Get a feel for what you are building and preview your App at different stages. The preview ensures that you are 100% on track for your desired results. It also means you can be constantly tweaking and changing to ensure you are fully satisfied with the end results. Here at Konnect we offer a preview App so you can log in and track your App build progress.

4. TEST

It is very important to test your App to ensure everything has been developed and created to how you intended it to work. It is also very important that you know exactly how the App works. There is nothing worse than not knowing your own product….Before you release it to the general public, make sure you know the systems, features and capabilities like the back of your hand!

5. Feedforward 

No-one wants your App project to go backwards. That is why we offer feedforward. Get some opinions from customers, staff, clients and the general public. Find out what areas of your App they love and no so love…Put together a simple roadmap on where you want to go and place the most important updates at the top. You can always re-arrange the importance of your updates but make sure you have a clear idea of what needs improving and why…
