The mobile application market is developing by leaps and bounds. Check out the App Store or Google Play and you'll be blown away by the abundance of software products. Here are a few important things to consider before developing a mobile app.
Market research before development
It is important to know everything about your potential customers. Their geographical location, gender, profession, age, income. Their preferences, desires, fears and pain points.
Conduct a SWOT analysis of competitors' products, learn from others' mistakes and read customer reviews. This will give you an idea of what people love or hate about a particular mobile app. It is better to spend a couple of evenings on analysis than several months on development, collecting feedback and realizing your own shortsightedness!
Before you start developing your mobile application, conduct a comprehensive market research. try to get an idea of the target audience and competition.
Planning and monitoring
Mobile app development costs money. To increase the chances of project success, it is necessary from the very beginning and correctly allocate funds for each stage of development.
Keep track of how much money you spend from start to finish. Be aware that when developing a new software product, unexpected costs and schedule delays can occur.
Careful planning and monitoring is your key to success.
Native apps are developed specifically for a specific mobile operating system; for example, Java is used to develop applications for Android. They make the most of OS features and device-specific software and hardware (cameras, one-touch pay, GPS).
Hybrid apps are a combination of native and web apps that can be deployed on different OS and run on different browsers like Safari, IE or Chrome. Here the emphasis is on universality of use at the expense of specificity.
