Mobile phones have been a necessity for most of you today and they are incomplete without apps. The time one spends on mobile apps is equal, if not greater, to what you spend with family members. To make you happy, developers spend sleepless nights to create a unique experience and if you are an iOS developer, it is even more difficult job. Why I say this is it is very difficult to go through the standards set by Apple store to host an application. Even a small bug or inconsistent user experience can restrict you from entering. And in a way, this is really good as it produces high-quality iPhone applications.
Let us break the ice bit-by-bit by looking at the process that will help you develop a great iPhone application.
Populate your idea: Idea is nothing but a spark you had in your mind about doing something unique. However, this is not the end. Infect, it is not even the beginning. The idea is just an Idea until you bring it on a paper and work on the feasibility of developing an iPhone application. Unless you have something to work upon, your idea is useless.
Define the roadmap to success: Once you know what the app is all about, prepare a business plan. This necessarily includes an understanding of target audience, drawing down a timeline for project completion, app design and development requirements and managing the funds.
Get iPhone developer on board: Prepare a list of iPhone app developers. Compare your list of requirements against the abilities and experience of an app development company. Sort out the one who you feel is reliable, cost effective and has the ability to develop innovative iPhone apps.
Make testing a compulsion: As I mentioned earlier, Apple does not allow you to upload an app if it does not comply with the standards laid by them. To ensure timely launch of an iPhone app, you must invest heavily in mobile app testing. Using TDD driven model would be a big plus for the success of your mobile application.
Plan marketing activities: App is just an app if nobody knows about its availability. You need to back your app with advanced marketing techniques to ensure enough popularity of the mobile app. Content marketing and leveraging the power of social media is the best way to make the most out your iPhone app.
Though each stage has sub-stages and are equally important, these steps perfectly outline the way you can write success for your next iPhone application. Add your views in comments to help the community with better insights.
