We’ve talked about a lot of mobile apps here on Mighty Gadget. Apps are essential parts of our smartphones; they’re the reasons you can do so much on your devices in the first place. These apps are designed to entertain you, solve your problems and provide access to a wide range of resources with a tap on the screen.
Venturing into the world of app markets is relatively easy too. You no longer have to be limited by your inability to code or lack of resources when you have an idea for a great app. It is time to turn those ideas into mobile success; we’re going to review the best getting-started tips in this article.
Start with a Solution
The best ideas are the ones that offer solutions to existing problems. Some of the most successful apps you see today started life as a simple solution to a problem. Uber was created because there was a need for an easy, app-based transportation service that was cheaper and more accessible than conventional taxis. Even Flappy Bird, a simple game that was a big hit not too long ago, was so popular because it presented users with a way to kill hours of time and stay entertained.
Don’t just sit on your ideas. Work on one particular idea that you think will solve the most common problem faced by you and others. Fine-tune details about how the app will work and start writing things down. You can also use additional tools such as wire-framing apps to help you create visuals for the app. Work on one idea at a time so you can focus your energy.
Turn Ideas into an App
While a lot of apps are developed by a single developer or programmer, apps that are successful in the long run are usually supported by a strong team. Now that you have the idea for an app figured out and written down, it is time to build a team of your own.
Developing an app today is easier than you think. There are companies and agencies that specialise in mobile application development. You can hire them to handle all the hard work for you, from turning wireframes into working apps to dealing with updates and maintenance tasks.
Some agencies will even help you pass the app store review process. Both the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store have strict standards to meet before an app can be distributed through them. having an experienced team will help you complete the process that much sooner.
Market the App
While the development team handle the creation of your app, you can focus more on marketing the app. Create a landing page for the app and start setting up social media pages to support it. Don’t forget to get the word out as early as possible.
You can garner interest and start attracting potential users with the help of internet marketing. App stores now let users register for upcoming apps, which means you can start setting up the app store pages for your app and attract early adopters too. Create excitement around the app and it won’t be long before that simple idea you got while sitting in your room turns into the next big thing and a huge mobile success.
