Building a mobile app from scratch can be overwhelming, especially if you are doing it for the first time.
You may be wondering how to start building a mobile app, will it be as you imagined and how much time you need for all the making.
There is lots to do.
First, you need to prepare all your ideas for your mobile app: its name, visual feel, content, and any other details you may need. Then, after lots of revisions and iterations, after you cement all of those details, you’re ready to start building your app.
Why do businesses build mobile apps? What’s wrong with a website?
Well-designed apps with intuitive user experiences out-perform traditional websites with their portability and speed; apps store data locally instead of remotely like on a website. Plus there are many benefits like collecting data on your customers, marketing touches etc.
If you still haven’t done all the things before building your app, it’s perfectly fine to start now. But not tomorrow.
Many small-business owners decide to go with no-code mobile app development (if you are one of them, try using our guides on how to create Android or a guide to make an iOS app), but some decide to hire experts and leave them the process of mobile app development.
That means, even before starting with mobile app development Shoutem team did:
- Research, which means the team did a full app strategy where we set app goals and target audience by researching their niche market and competitor research,
- App design, where we created a quality, straightforward user experience based on your ideas and industry best practices, and
- Visual Solution, where we defined a strong, unique visual bond between businesses’ apps and their brand’s visual identity.
After this was done, process of mobile app development could start.
So, what was done with some of the apps?
