3 Steps You Must Think Of When Outsourcing Your Mobile App Development

Date: Monday, May 14, 2018 9:09 AM EST

What is it that something your target audience might like? What about the competition - have they built an application which solves a similar problem? Is there something in your application that meets the demands of your customers? Is it special enough to make a difference? As Todd DiPaola, president of inMarket sums it up:

Building an app is like building a house. You need to put time into thinking about what the rooms are going to look like before you start building

The perfect yet time-consuming way to gather this information is to launch a survey. Think both online and offline research: this way, you can discover what your target audience is looking for in your future app.

Eventually, you should have the definitive answers to these questions:

  • Is your app solving a problem?
  • Is it making your users lives easier?

Way too often keeping the balance between business drivers and user needs may be difficult. In many cases, the one just contradicts the other. Again, find the information in user studies, expert opinions, and business viability and technical feasibility studies. Later on, this data can be used to achieve the best counterbalance between user-centric solutions and business-value gains.

Planning Your App

The planning of the app’s look and feel is the second stage right after the market research. Before the beginning of development works, you have to make everything clear in order not to lose a single feature in the process. So it makes perfect sense to map everything out and analyze:

  • What features and functionality do you want in your app?
  • How do you want your app to look and feel?
  • What about the user flow?
  • Is it technically possible to build those features?

It also worth to decide whether it will be mobile responsive or mobile app. Do you expect clients to use your service on the go? Will you use push notifications? Is there’s a need to connect your software to other services? What about high connectivity?
