If you’re aspiring to become a top appreneur, let us help you with some of the things that you need to consider in order to develop the desired app:
Decide what category app you need
The below app categories let you decide under which category your app will come:
• Consumer app that is focused on customer acquisition and engagement
• Enterprises mobile app that is used for streamlining the business process
• Revamping the existing app
• Migrating the app from web platform to native
Decide the type of app you need
Have a clear vision of what type of app you need, such as native app, cross-platform app, or hybrid app. Choosing between these app types depends on your real requirements and expectations you have from the app. If you realize the differences and limitations between these apps, you will be able to take better decisions. Native app is nothing but a mobile app which is developed for a single platform, such as iOS, Android, Windows, or BB, whereas the cross-platform app is a one app which is used for multiple platforms.

Be specific about the feature (or functionality)
In first attempt, don’t try to put all in one basket. Test each feature on fixed time period and depending on its success, introduce the co-related feature like how WhatsApp introduced ‘voice calling’ after achieving a great success with the ‘chat’. In version 1, just focus on the functionality that would deliver the biggest impact.
Hire a right app development partner

Improve app upon user feedback

Roll out new features
