App development process

I have seen lot of startups asking the question that how much an app development would cost. Its hard to have a fixed price in place without understanding detailed requirement, number of platform, and level of complexity of the app. App development can be expensive, hence need to be planned properly. Our product specialist Ryan, usually arranges 30 minute telephonic workshops with startup founders to provide them advice on what strategy to follow:

  1. Choose right platform – it is very important for a startup to choose the most appropriate platform for the app development. We usually recommend to go for 1 platform, test with customer feedback and work towards building the MVP. If you are targeting younger demographic than IOS platform is usually preferred. However, if  budget is not a concern, than you can opt for both the platforms together.3
  2. Know your customer- One of the biggest mistake which lot of startups make is ignoring their customer. Develop a persona of your customer, and use design thinking approach to understand whats their motivation behind using the app. Draft a customer journey mapping, to understand their pains and gains and design an experience that en-thrills an end user from start to finish.
  3. Prepare a proper plan and set aside a proper budget for the app development. During this process, dont forget to include recurring cloud hosting charges, ongoing maintenance, and marketing costs. An app without a proper marketing strategy in place doesn’t achieve wider adoption and customer uptake.
  4. Apps with back-end servers will almost always cost more, dynamic apps with lot of complex functionalities, if-else logic are bound to cost more than simple static apps.
  5. Simple apps for one platform will start around $25,000 and More complex apps cost six figures but can push up over $100,000

An effective strategy to create such an experience is contextual design. A context-aware user interface continually adapts to the ideal form by leveraging available data and anticipating user needs.

 

What Is Contextual Design?

Contextual design presents the most relevant content and/or functions up front at all times. In doing so, the flow is controlled, taps/clicks are reduced, and both clutter and stagnant empty states are avoided. As soon as an app is opened, its purpose should be clear and the next step should always be obvious. Context-aware apps don’t sit and wait for user input before they come to life; they evolve with the user.

 

“Context-aware apps don’t sit and wait for user input before they come to life; they evolve with the user”

Contextual Design is Data Driven

Contextual design can take many considerations into account, including but not limited to: the user and their role, the task at hand or the step in a process, the user’s location, the time and date, or the device being used.

App development challenges

App development can be challenging and if not properly managed can also lead to early and premature closure of the project. The delays and cost overruns are two biggest reason of failures for major app development projects. The problem is universal, especially prevalent in larger-scale, complex projects. Delays happen for a variety of reasons, but are often a result of poor process, improper capacity planning, and lack of skill.

Budget overruns are often explicitly tied to product delays. The “time is money” adage holds true in this scenario. The longer it takes you to release and the more waste you incur as a result, the higher the cost.

How To Deal With It

At appers, we have a solution to deal with all these problems. Our expert team not only handles projects maturely but have a thorough understanding of the process with 100s of successful projects under the belt.Product delays and budget overruns are not easily avoided, but there are ways to reduce time and budget risks in projects:

  • Agile Development: One of the biggest impediments to success is trying to achieve absolute perfection with version one. Whilst during this process, startups aren’t able to get to market quickly. It is important to continually improve based on user feedback.
  • Quick Wins: It is important to keep developing small features, seek feedback and go further. Small wins are important to keep momentum running both with the startup and the app development company
  • Defined Feature list: At appers, we run several hours of workshop to discuss the app idea and understand what is required to bring life to that idea. We document detailed list of feature or user stories to list all requirements for the app with accurate time lines and costing
  • Strategic Planning : Product delays and budget overruns are often the result of improper capacity planning. If you can’t accurately estimate team capacity, you can’t properly estimate time or budget. At appers, each project gets a dedicated team allocated with best of the best skilled ios and android app developers. And our development team uses basecamp for project communication and bug tracking.
  • Flexibility: Inability to adapt to changing needs can have a huge impact on both time and budget. At appers, we maintain flexibility and accept any reasonable changes to the scope to develop an experience that your customers will enjoy.

Business requirements are criteria that are necessary to meet organizational objectives. Typically they outline how the product or solution will address the needs of the company and/or its users.

These considerations are commonly included when mapping out business requirements for a mobile app requirements document:

 

  • What is the purpose of the app or product? What are you trying to accomplish?
  • What is the current problem(s) it will solve?
  • How will it streamline or improve the current process or facilitate a new process?
  • What is the product vision?
  • What aspects are already in place? What needs to be added? Will the app need to be started from scratch or can you leverage existing assets?
  • What should the app be able to do (ie. functionality)?
  • What features will it need?
  • What is the monetization or business model?
  • Are there branding and design guidelines that need to be followed?
  • Is the ask feasible?
