Where to start when developing an app

When developing a mobile app, it may sound like an overwhelming project that requires attention to detail, time, and effort. Whether you own a company or an entrepreneur looking to make your mark in this technological world, constructing your app can provide many benefits. You will soon realize that making app development worth your while. Are you interested in developing a mobile app? Outlined below are a few essential starting points.  



All good things start with a thought, an idea, or a solution. The birth of a mobile app begins with one of those three things. Once you have solidified your concept, it is time to see if there is a need for your app. What solutions does it solve? Does it make a task easier? What value can it bring to its users? These are all questions to ask yourself when going through the idea process. Coming up with a concept may take a few attempts at the drawing board. However, do not let that stop you from seeing your project through.


Plan of action 

Know your audience! Understanding your target audience will help guide your decisions during the design process. An app comes to life with its design and quality features. During the design process is where you want to focus your attention and map out every detail. Include a design plan for aesthetic appearance and design how the user will navigate through your app. Mapping out the user’s interactions is also known as user flow. Back to the drawing board, outline each screen your user will interact with. The goal is to determine which features you want as a priority. Obtaining these details will make things easier when it comes time to speak to an app developer. 


The build 

You have worked out all the details, and now it is time to construct your mobile app. A professional app developer will build your mobile app and assist with the design process to make your project come to life. Working alone or as part of a development team, an app developer should possess a few key traits. When choosing a mobile app developer, you want to make sure they have excellent communication skills and work ethics. Communication is where wants, needs, or desires can get lost in translation. Your mobile app developer should effectively tune into your project’s goal and execute the details with precision. A mobile app developer will guide you in the right direction, utilizing their expertise. Their skill set should include multiple programming languages, being well versed across various platforms (Android/iOS), data security, and creativity. A goal-oriented mobile app developer will have your project working seamlessly and ready to go for its users in a timely manner.

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.
