At the same time, other companies flop to provide operative Apps, unlike top corporations who follow the up-to-date development process exceptionally.

On the other hand, these Mobile App Developing companies hire the most experienced mobile app developers because they know the development process explicitly. Besides, they can build Apps from the ground level up and add valuable features to the apps. In this artifact, we’ll go through the top six development planning. That you should know before developing an App:

Operational Development Concepts:

1. Strategy

The opening phase of developing a mobile app alters your significant Planning into an effective app. In this phase, several aspects of developing apps will be strategized and discussed, mainly app intended users and their necessities. Although, most new developers jump to developing while skipping this phase. As a result, it fails to attract Users.

Usually, it takes three to six months to develop a mobile app. While strategizing smartly and doing some background research helps you create the intellectual app.

Some Strategizing tips:

Know your intended app user, and then you’ll find it easy to start planning further.

  • Do some background research on the related app idea.
  • Set the mobile app’s goals and objectives.
  • Select your mobile app platform, Android or iOS.

2. Analysis and Planning

At this point, your app strategies and app idea initiate turning into an actual project. First, analysis and Planning essentially captures the complete functional requirements and defines the app’s use case. Next, conduct a product roadmap after the identification of the needs of the app. Finally, the product roadmap ranks the mobile app requirements and categorizing them into deliverable milestones.

Furthermore, Analysis and Planning include choosing platforms to develop the mobile app. Because Android and iOS use diverse development platforms and tools. Above all, there are now different developers for each mobile platform. Therefore, if you want to develop an iOS or Android mobile app, each requires an other developer. You can also build your MVP(Minimum-viable-product) unless costs and time remain a concern.

This section also includes the naming of your mobile app. Choosing a name for your mobile can also be a tricky slice. However, most apps have enchanting success because of their brainy names. 

3.  UI/UX Design

First and foremost, maximal people are brightly engrossed only by the mobile app design. This section mainly includes enhancing and polishing the mobile app screen appearances. UI/UX design delivers users an all-in-one and graceful user experience. Most of the time, a User requires an attractive, interactive app. Therefore, front-end developer also has a high margin of hiring in app development companies. Front-end developer ensures easy user interaction with websites and apps.

This section resides into the following categories:

Back-End/Server Technology:

Databases and server-side are also known as Back-End/Server technologies, which support essential functionalities of the mobile app.

API (Application Programming Interface):

This technique creates a communication link between a front-end and backend. In other words, API allows two applications to talk to each other. In more general terms, API is like a waiter. Who takes orders from the customer(front-end) and then places the order in the kitchen(backend). 

Mobile App Front-End

A native mobile app an end-user uses. Generally, users can only use the front-end of the app, whereas only the app developer and the app owner can use and manage the backend. 

In diagrammatical term: 

Front-end API Backend

Whereas in the front-end, the user requests the backend by using API. And in return then the backend grants its user request via API. And send the desired request for users. 

5. Testing

Similarly, testing tends to be equally important, corresponding to the points mentioned above. For more stable, usable, and secure mobile, testing assures the quality and performance of the mobile app. Subsequently, it ensures a wide range of QA (Quality Assurance) testing of your app. 

In addition, Test cases contain test steps precisely, record testing results for software quality evaluation, and track fixes for retesting.

The app should survive the accompanying testing procedures:

  • User Experience Testing
  • Functional Testing 
  • Performance Testing
  • Security Testing
  • Device and Platform Testing

6. Deployment and Support

Finally, the last step in the smartphone app development process. Development and Support involve releasing your app to reach out to users—Apple Store for iOS mobile app and Google Play store for Android mobile apps. Likewise, make sure to have a developer account in the mentioned app stores before launching your app.

Also, the following metadata is to be prepared earlier than its release on app stores:

  • App title
  • Description
