Aaaaand we’re back…with the second half of Mobile App Development Lifecycle Levels series, where we’re discussing the the nine-step mobile app development process.
(If you missed Part One, go ahead and check it out before you continue.)
If you’ve run across any bugs and have made improvements, now is the time to change them in the storyboards and wireframes. After doing this, you can build a prototype where you can finally see how your ideas will work together.
6. Building time
Regardless of which type of app you’re creating, cross platform to from scratch, it’s time to physically build your app. This step also includes coding, building screens, and programming.
It’s the moment of truth.
After your long hours of planning, building, coding, and everything else that went into your project, it’s time to see if you’re actually successful.
Take the time to look through your processes and ensure that you’ve covered all of your ideas. Additionally, have others test your app as well and document how they use it. Welcome any feedback they provide. Fix any issues that arise.
Here’s where your marketing team (whether that’s a physical team or just yourself) takes over and you announce your new app. Be sure to make use of keyword research to ensure your app is discovered by the right people who will actually find it valuable.
9. Launch & Revise
It’s finally time to actually launch your app! Pick a release date and stick to it.
After launching your app, be receptive to additional feedback and make any improvements that are necessary. Running an app is a continual process that will involve making small improvements over time.
Congrats on building an app!
