Developing Best Apps for iPhone, iPad, Android Devices
As an Apple Developer, Web Epoch is providing Mobile App development services for iPhone and iPad devices since 2010. Our launch of the stockandnews.com iPad App was successful in proving that the content consumption platform of iPad is preferred over desktop. Web Epoch was able to setup professional HD video camera for Brian Trumbore who was able to broadcast his nightly news review to the StocksandNews YouTube Channel and users were able to see updated video on the iPad App.
For your mobile app to be successful, we must target 4 precise goals:
- Your app meets your objective for sales or number of users
- Your app attracts a large number of users to support the objective
- Your app meets or exceeds the user’s expectation
- Your app excites the user and encourages, then to continue use, provide updates to earn a fan base for your service app.
There are 5 key phases of mobile app design & development that help ensure your goals are met successfully. Your understanding of each phase increases the probability that your mobile app launch will be successful.
THE 5 KEY PHASES IN YOUR SUCCESSFUL MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT ARE:
- STRATEGY – What will the app do?
- DESIGN – Who will use the app?
- DEVELOPMENT – How will we create this?
- MARKETING – Let’s let the world know and sell it
- MAINTENANCE – Let’s keep improving for users
PHASE 1 – STRATEGY
Our initial app development strategy will determine the platform such as iPad, iPhone, an Android or multiple devices. As an Authorized Apple Developer, create the project specifications including; the user interface (UI) design needs will be established. A tablet App like the StocksandNedws.com iPad app will have a different UI than an smartphone app. Information based app verses shopping cart app will have different functionality that users engage, so we need to determine the key requirements in order to design and streamline best features for users.
PHASE 2 – DESIGN
Once we have established the strategic foundation of your app, we can begin the development of your app. In this phase, we focus on the user experience; including the interface design, the functions and the application performance that allow user’s to engage with your app.
PHASE 3 – DEVELOPMENT
We will need to decide if we are using native or cross-platform environment for development. Based on your user’s need and app performance we will carefully assist you making the right decision for your mobile app development project. Your mobile app back end architecture and the hosting platform are other critical decisions we must make for your mobile app success.
PHASE 4 – MARKETING
Getting the word out about your mobile app launch is important to success. There are several avenues we must attack such as Bilboard, Social media, Blog, Email, Search directories, press releases, articles and friends.
PHASE 5 – MAINTENANCE
Once we get clients and users we need to keep improving your mobile app for functionality, security, speed and stability. By keeping users happy and engaged, they can help spread the word to acquire more clients.
