Web & Mobile App Design

Web and Mobile App Development

Developing web and mobile apps usually involve simple yet demanding processes, that if one step in the chain goes wrong, there is a high possibility that the result might turn out to a bust. Successful apps don't just come from nowhere; they require inspiration, hard work, dedication, an eye to detail, and maybe a little luck.

The processes are; the discovery or brainstorming process, prototype development process, and app development process to develop a successful mobile or web application..

Discovery or Brainstorming Process

Discovery or Brainstorming Process

The discovery process is the incubation stage of app development; this stage is crucial. All the information available on the proposed app is gathered, and ideas on how to develop the unique feature the app will have, are all discussed during this process.

This process involves both the app designers and developers forming a synergy, critiquing and analyzing each idea for its merits and demerits, the potential pitfalls they are likely to face during app development.

It is during the brainstorming process that a timeline is drawn and milestones or targets are set.

Prototype Development Process

Now that the brainstorming stage is over, the process that follows develops a prototype of the intended app—this where the User Experience (UX) and app designing happens. No matter the problem that your app solves, it probably won't be a hit if it is not user-friendly with an eye-catching design.

The essence of building the prototype is to bring to reality the ideas that were thought of during the brainstorming process. When the prototype is developed and tested, developers check if the app taking shape is anything like the one conceived at the brainstorming stage.

Any issue noticed is corrected, and the prototype is run again; the prototype development stage is the bridge connecting the brainstorming and app development processes. If an app is a building, then the discovery process is the building drawing. The prototype development is the building's skeleton or shell; not seen when the building is completed, but it wouldn’t be helpful without it.

Prototype Development Process

App Development Process

This is the final process in app development, where all the app coding happens. The finishing touches are applied, and the app is uploaded to the Google and Apple stores.

What happens during the app development process, where the final design is done. The app already has a base design during the prototype process, but adjustments are made here. After the final design, front-end and back-end coding are carried out. The app sever is also included.

The app is tested for bugs; this test is essential for a reliable web or mobile app. Developers cannot roll out an app without testing it from start to finish to eliminate whatever bugs pop up during testing.

Conclusion

For a web or mobile app to go from a concept in your mind to a useable app, these are the processes that it goes through. Depending on the app's complexity, it takes between a few weeks to a few months to go through all the processes.

Several mobile app development companies are willing to take your app concept, build it into a real app and hand it over to you like your app, all or a fee. When searching for such an agency, look for one with a track record for excellence that has enviable recommendations from previous clients, and most importantly, staff who know what they are doing.

Visit their website before booking an appointment; if you are satisfied, send them an email or call them. Tell them about your idea, the kind of service you require, and your budget. Ensure you are kept in the loop from brainstorming to app development. Whatever you are not sure of, seek clarification before moving to the next stage.

Many app development firms love to work with start-ups; if your business is a start-up, emphasize this. It might even get you a discount.
