There are four different stages one has to pass through when it comes to the app development process.
Firstly, there is the planning stage. Here you determine what to include and exclude from the app you want to build, and when to stop. You then choose an audience after which you determine which channels to help. In the planning stage also, you create a design, then you make the prototype and refine the design.
The next stage is the development stage. In this stage, you create a cohesive system by implementing data structures, custom objects/classes, and a database. This is followed by breaking down the app's features into small chunks and putting them together. In this stage, you also design and create graphical tools, implement the user interface, and then lastly implement and improve the user experience.
The third stage is the testing stage. This where you try out the app you have built to figure out bugs, lapses, and other problems that might occur when making use of the app. Depending on the results you see in this stage, you will either advance to the next or go back to the second stage. The testing stage may happen over and over again till you have a perfect app with no flaws nor bugs. You have to keep on experimenting with any combination of hardware and configuration to find and address any bugs that may or may not exist. This stage tests your endurance and can be very demanding, stressful, and frustrating. Once the testing stage is passed and completed, your app is good to go to the last and final stage.
Lastly, you will have to go through time-consuming administrative procedures in order to get your app into the stores. Whether you develop an Android mobile app
or an iOS mobile app, you will have to follow the guidelines needed by the stores to have your app in them.
In other words, follow these steps to create your app:
‣ Choose a name for your app.
‣ Choose a color scheme for your project.
‣ Customize the look and feel of your app.
‣ Select the appropriate test unit.
‣ Install the app on your phone or tablet.
‣ Have the functionality you need (Key Section).
‣ Before the launch, test the app.
‣ Publish your application.
‣ Get the word out about your app.
‣ Request reviews from your customers.
