A Guide Toward Creating A Mobile Phone App

A Guide Toward Creating A Mobile Phone App

A recent study revealed that the scale of the number of people using smartphones is almost tipping towards 4 billion. To put things in perspective, that is more than half of the population of the world. One of the primary reasons behind the massive rise of mobile phone usage in the past few years has been its role in the everyday life of humans. From major businesses to an everyday person using a phone, smartphones and the applications on it have a solution of some kind for everyone.

That is why, development of applications for various business purposes is nothing new, but it surely takes new turns and adapts new strategies every now and then. However, while your requirement to create an app or use an app might be different, but the process behind it remains the same. You can get creative along the way, but the principles remain the same. Therefore, if your wish is to make an application without having to go through the hassle that many beginners do, you must understand the basic process of it. Therefore, let us see what it takes.

Understand The Need: Objective

One of the initial stages of application development requires you to understand and note down why you need it in the first place. For instance, if you are going to make an application for an e-commerce business, then your need is business-related. If you are going to make an entertainment-related app, then you are going to make a streaming app, gaming app, or other types as such. However, the most important part is that you figure out how to go about one specific type. Once you choose your objective or goal, then you can move forward with the process.

Choose The Right Type

This “type” selection has nothing to do with the category of your application. It will deal with the type of application development that you are going to employ. There are two main types of development today. One of them is native and the other is hybrid. Native applications are when it is developed exclusively for one platform. Whereas a Hybrid application is a web-based app that is adaptable to various platforms. Choose the right type for you and then move forward.

Design The App

According to an expert in mobile app development in Los Angeles, the primary source of an application being successful comes down to two main things. One of them is performance and the other is visuals. If your application is visually appealing, then the chances of it being successful are higher. Therefore, what you need to do is sit down and design the application properly. Not just the overall outlook, but things such as splash screens, buttons, animations et cetera.

Create The App

Now comes the main part, the development phase. Whether you choose native or hybrid, you will have to choose one particular type of application development language. Furthermore, you are going to have to make an app based on your requirement, so you will have to keep that in mind. If you make a native android app, then you can find tutorials and frameworks. If you choose the iOS app, then you can find information to make an app from scratch because it helps and is simpler compared to making something on the existing skeleton. However, you need to focus on this part because you do not want any bugs or any other problems that might compromise the overall quality of your application.

Testing & Launch

Once you are done doing it, you will have to test your application. There are many exercises employed by professionals to see if the application will hold under stress. If it does, then you move forward, but if there are problems, make sure you fix them before launch. Now, making it online is a whole other topic because whether you put it on Google’s Play Store or Apple’s Appstore, the process for both of them is different.

Over To You

That is about it, the basic process of making an application. However, it is important to note that while various types may require a different approach, the basics and principles would always remain the same.
