Six Steps: iPhone and iPad Mobile AppDevelopment for Newbies (or Not-So-Newbies)  

Everyone is talking about the potential of mobile apps, and this sounds like a great idea for your business—but how on earth do you get started? The dizzying array of solutions, ideas and suggestions available on the Internet can only serve to add to your confusion. What you need is a real-world walkthrough of how to get started with iPhone app development. Keep reading, because today is your lucky day!
Market Research

Step 1: Getting Started: Market Research

Possibly the most fun part of the whole process is when you get to lurk around the iTunes and Google Play Stores and find other apps that may be similar to what you are trying to accomplish. This is an incredibly important part of the process, and one that can best be accomplished once you have chosen your technology vendor as they can help you look at the different app options holistically—giving you great advice about which functionality is difficult (e.g. expensive!) or relatively easy to execute.
Define Your Functionality

Step 2: Getting Started: Define Your Functionality

Before you can get to the really fun stuff, you have to do the work of structuring the data that you want to present in your app. Data can be incredibly relational with a hierarchical structure that seems to defy reason at times. Regardless, you must wrestle your data to the ground and let it know you mean business. This generally involves a lot of discussion, coffee and often negotiation between your user experience or marketing team and technology or external vendor.
Detailed Wireframe Design

Step 3: Create Extensive and Detailed Wireframes (aka App Design)

Mockups are incredibly detailed and important in mobile development. A knowledgeable iPhone app developer will create mockups for both a smart phone and tablet-sized look for you to approve. These can be significantly different; an iPad app development project is not the same as an oversized iPhone app development project by a long shot. There are significant differences in the use of real estate, or space, within the smart phone or tablet screen. A critical mistake that you can make during the ideation phase is not keeping in mind how customers will be using your new mobile app. Will they be reading it only horizontally, or are there pieces that will work best on vertical orientations? Will you need to switch back and forth within each screen, or are there certain parts of the experience that you want to lock down in a particular screen orientation? These are all parts of the wireframing process that you want to keep in mind while you are working with your designer.

While you may be tempted to see some basic mockups and think ‘Looks good, I’ll tweak as we go’—think again. Mobile app development is much more structured in some ways than traditional web design. Web design is very CSS-driven as far as design, meaning that if you make a change later it is unlikely to affect other areas of the site and is generally pretty easy to execute. Mobile development is a different beast, and even slight changes to interface design can cause significant challenges or cause your project to go over budge or fail to deliver on time.


Step 4: Development

Once your timeline is drawn, your UI/UX approved, and everyone has signed on the dotted line that they agree how the app should look and behave; now it is time to turn the project over to the programmers. While it may seem like you have approved a “working app,” all you have really seen until this point is the shell. Professional developers now have the heavy lifting of molding the business logic to fit within the template, including hooking up complex code modules, setting up app environments and testing environments, defining API’s and SDK’s, defining interaction with external elements as well as integration with the iPhone app development platform and the iPad app development platform. Developers must have a full understanding of the backend functionality of each app as well as how the user will interact with the app and any other technology that has been tied in. This could include website integration, external logins or any number of different points of entry.

Step 5: Try to Break Your New App

Once you have a working Beta, your job is to bomb-proof it. Try not just the things that you want customers to do, but try the things that you know people will do “just because” and see what the user experience (UX) is like. Load a provision of the app on your iPhone or iPad and take it to your hairdresser, your waiter, your Mom, your co-workers—tell them nothing about the app, but hand them the device and ask them to play with it. Watch how they interact with the app for the first time because this is your best market knowledge about how users will interact with the app out in real world situations. When your test users get confused or get lost in some of the functionality, or don’t find things intuitively—take note! Those are the priorities to be fixed, especially if more than one of your testers has the same question or issue. Your goal during this time is to get as many qualified and completely unqualified testers as possible in order to get the best data you can. If these test users don’t intuitively “get” whatever you are wanting them to see, the worst thing you can do is assume that the user is the problem and that your real-life app users are somehow going to know immediately what to do. Tweak, fix, adjust—do whatever you need to do to assure that your app will have a positive user experience.
App Store Submission

Step 6: App Store Submission

It seems like launching your app would be the simplest part of the process, but that is unlikely to be the case. Between gathering graphical assets such as screen shots and logos and creating unique and compelling text content that will drive downloads, you will definitely have your hands full. Apple’s submissions process includes 10 days minimum approval time and the potential of a much longer submission process if Apple asks for changes. Always budget extra time for store submission “just in case” there are challenges during that process. Submission to the Google Play Store is very straightforward; you simply upload the code and the app is available within a few minutes to a few hours.

From market research, to wireframes; from iPhone app development to submission—creating a mobile app can feel overwhelming. However, if you select a vendor you trust who can come alongside you during the journey, you will find that creating a mobile application is a very rewarding experience and one that you are eager to repeat.
