A Step-by-Step Guide On Mobile App Development Process

With the advancing technology, the mobile app industry has also evolved. From Fintech and Insurance sector to the fashion, entertainment and retail industry, mobile app development is a necessity to all. What started with as simple as the Flappy Bird app, the development has now moved on to a time where it is answering all the human needs.

While users demands and businesses innovativeness have together transformed the mobile application; the process of development remains the same with just a minor change to it, be it add-ons or removal of the process.

In this article we will be looking into the answer to ‘How to Build an App’ process followed by mobile app development company dubai for giving the world innovative and superior quality apps and ones that are settled, we will give you a bird eye view of how we develop an app in-house at Appinventiv.

The Typical Mobile App Development Process Steps

The Mobile App Development industry, although very vast in terms of the players, follow more or less the same process when it comes to application development.

As you saw in the infographic on mobile application development life cycle, the steps for effective software product development are made up of three parts – Preparatory Elements where you go for software development consulting, Actual Mobile App Development Process, and the Post Launch Maintenance Tips for Effective Software Product Development Process, which is fairly a standard process when developing mobile apps. Since each app is different, thus our methodologies evolve according to the requirement. These development steps have further processes that typically include idea, strategy, mobile app design process, development, deployment, and post-launch phases.

The Mobile App Development Process

Once the software development dubai worked well for finalizing the actual process to starts – Development.

When we talk about mobile application development, there are two parts to the process – Front and Backend.

Frontend development

This process is followed to develop what would be shown to the app users. There are a lot of things that a mobile app developer will have to take care of when designing and developing the frontend. This also includes MVP0020of the product. The MVP helps you to understand and know what your product requires right now from the customer’s point of view. The required things are prioritized according to the development and requirement. You can note down all the changes that can be made later-on on the app. This process lets you have a clear vision and goal, and make sure to successfully develop the app’s core functionality.

Backend development

This is the most crucial part of one of the whole steps to develop an app. The more robust your backend is, the more powerful your app would be. The backend should be designed and developed in a way that supports scalability and easy management of the app even after it’s launched.

In the backend, the server is as much responsible for your app’s performance and scalability as the design and UI/UX of the app. Backend mostly involves writing code which must be done taking into account the language, database, wireframe, APIs, and so on.

Process We Follow

The mobile application development process flow that a typical mobile application development company follows can be divided in three parts – Planning, Development, and Maintenance.

1. The first call

In the call, we include our pre sales team’s head, who is skilled in the technology that the app will be made on and we include people from the business development team with an understanding of the technology.

2. NDA

What follows the call is an NDA. We sign and send  non disclosure agreement to our prospects ensuring that their idea will not be used or shared by us as a suggestion to other business.

3. Scoping

Once the prospect becomes our client, we create a scope of work. The scope of work consists of a document that consists of the detail of the app project – The idea, Technology Stack, and Time it would take to complete the development process.

4. Agile sprint

Once the Scope of Work gets a go ahead from the clients’ side, we move on the development process.

5. MVP

What follows a sprint is an MVP. Following the Agile development process we create a minimum viable product that is now ready to be launched. We then float the MVP among a subset of prospective users and get their feedback.

6. Agile again

Upon collecting their feedback, we make the necessary changes in the app using the same Agile process as done at the time of MVP development.

7. App is launched in the stores

After ensuring that the working model of the app is ready according to the exact needs of the client and their end users, we go ahead with the publishing of it on the stores.

8. Post launch app maintenance

The last but continued part of our process is App Maintenance. We stick around to ensured that the app has been accepted by the millions of users that it was intended to reach in the first place.

Parting Words

From choosing a partner, and Product Discovery, to app release, and its maintenance, as the technology evolves the app development will be an ongoing process. Also it is important to note that app development is not a one-time process. As said before the app needs continuous improvisation of the features and functionality post the release and according to the market trends.
