There are hundreds of applications developed and submitted by Mobile app development companies in Google Play Store and Apple Store. These apps are of various aspects like Games, Social Network, eCommerce etc. Their apps are different from one another and methods which are involved for mobile app development connected with each other in many ways.
There are few steps to be followed for an Android App which involves Design, Development, Deployment, Support & Maintenance, Let's discuss in details about steps.
Concept of App
First you need to decide the idea and purpose of mobile App. Based on concept, It is required to keep in mind about the user's perspective, demographics, behaviour pattern and goals. By clear goals and concepts we can create a strong base of mobile apps that will give you ideas about necessary research for next upcoming steps.
This step is important as before starting a development it is required to complete all basic work to go ahead with app development. Also it requires complete analysis of similar apps which are developed by competitors and that will help you to decide unique features for your mobile app to distinguish your app from competitors.
This step will check technical feasibility based on decided mobile app concepts. In order to check feasibility it is required to have a complete understanding of app design wire-frame and functionality of mobile app. This will help you to clarify some doubts related to mobile apps.
In addition to that, an Android App Development company would also require access to public data via API integration. By this step the development team has an idea about some alternatives if some features from original functionality are not feasible.
During this step, Based on Functionality, assumptions and decided project scope working model of app will be prepared. The mobile app will pass through various development phases from implementing core functionality to initial testing of mobile apps. After finishing initial testing, App will be released to some external users or group for more testing to get feedback which will help to improve the app.
If an application has a very wide scope of work then mobile app developers or an Mobile App Development Company will break down scope into different phases or smaller modules by acquiring Agile Development Methodology.
Testing & Deployment
It is required to do more testing at the initial stage which removes issues or bugs and as a result the app will be strong with good performance because testing will be based on Usability, UI, Security Checks, Device Compatibility, Threats and overall performance of the app. These feedbacks are very important to remove bugs on development and In deployment phase your mobile app will be ready to launch.
It is also required to keep in mind launching policies and conditions based on App store guidelines so this deployment stage totally depends on App store policies and procedures.
Now work is not completed yet as once your app is downloaded by user’s, You will get feedback from them and based on that it is required to start working and make improvements and start releasing regular updates which is most important of Mobile app life-cycle.
It is also required to allocate enough resources to meet end-users' needs as per their expectations and preferences.
