What is App development and what does it entail?

The process in which a developer will create a computer program or a set of programs to perform various tasks that are automated. By automating specific processes, repetitive tasks can be reduced. Therefore, enhancing the workflow of your business or company.   


App building process

The app-building process follows a few necessary steps: planning, designing, building, testing, launching, and marketing.


Planning- establish your goal. 

To obtain an idea or purpose behind your app, establishing its goal will provide you with a clear outline and starting point. You may want to ask yourself how the app will create more straightforward solutions for the business and customers/users, which audience should be targeted, or what benefits your app provides. Understanding your target audience would be a priority, or else the success of the app could get lost in translation and become useless. Age, location, gender, career, niche market are all topics to consider when establishing your target market. After determining your target audience, next would include mapping out an idea of how the app could be useful to them. Once the app’s use is accomplished, you then want to figure out how the user will successfully use it. Some examples of using an app could include a log-in option, will the user be purchasing or viewing items, or is there a specific tool where there is an exchange of data? By doing this, you are acting on behalf of the user experience. Designing and promoting are next on the list when it comes to planning your app. 



Keep user experience in mind, how do you want your app to look, what qualities and features should be present? A wireframe is excellent as it brings your vision to life in physical form. A wireframe is dedicated explicitly to mapping out each page of the app. With this outline, you will have a better idea of what works and what does not. It is not permanent; changes can be made, and any additions can be incorporated to enhance user capabilities and aesthetics further. To leave a remarkable impression, seek advice from your app developer. They can guide in a professional direction. 



 Programming and coding are the heart of app development. It turns an idea or prototype into something tangible for your users. App development is categorized by front-end and back-end. Front-end will focus on the visual aspects, navigation, user interaction, layout, and much more. Back-end will focus on data, data storage and management, user management, as well as networking. Seek help from an app developer. This is what they do. Technical construction, an app developer, is well equipped with the skill sets to build your app and cater to your vision, leading to your app’s success. 



Testing is critical as you want to make sure your app appeals to your demographic. You want to ensure your app performs and functions to the standards laid out in the planning process. A professional app developer will guide you accordingly and may have the solution to carry out any testing. 


Launching and marketing

Finally! It is time to launch and market your app. The foundation bases have been covered, and now you can watch your app flourish. There are many ways to promote and publish your app. Using social media, or a business website are two fantastic ways to attract users. If you need ideas, ask your app developer, they are well equipped to handle any app development inquiry.

My life has been surrounded with computers since I was a child, from my first job as a Computer Assembly Assistant to the current ownership of Priority Networks, a dental focused networking company. Starting with an Apple computer connecting to other networks when I was only 13 years old, I quickly knew this passion would lead to bigger ventures. As the internet started to evolve, I immediately worked for an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This gave me insight to the power of worldwide internet communications and the capabilities of sharing data across multiple networks simultaneously. The dedication towards this field has given me the advantage of understanding new technologies and grasping complicated issues quickly from software, hardware, networking, security, management and much more. As a Computer Network Manager for Tesma International, a division of Magna International, I gained the experience of becoming a qualified NAI Network Sniffer, EDI Communications Specialist, Head Securities Manager, MRP Manufacturing Integration Manager, and received several enhanced managerial and technological training courses. Moving forward to today, I apply all my knowledge, training and years of solid network experience to deliver the very best support to all my customers at Priority Networks.
