How to develop an app? The 10 questions to ask

How to develop an app? The 10 questions to ask

Developing an app, whether web or mobile, Android or Apple, is a complex task, to be tackled only after clearing the field of doubt. One of all: can I do it alone or do I need a Software House?

Developing an app is no easy task, whether you want to create it for iOS, Android or the web.

The moment when you have the intuition of life is always special. You find yourself fantasizing about every aspect of the app you want to develop without caring too much about the problems you will encounter along the way but focusing on the result: a mountain of money.

In reality, anyone who then started to produce an app has come up against the inevitable problems of the case: little vision, few means, few skills.

Let's start at the beginning.

Why did I decide to make an app?

First of all you have to ask yourself what your Vision is, i.e. what is the goal for which you produce an app and whether it can be of interest and to whom. It's not a trivial phase, quite the opposite: it's the moment when you choose your target.

The questions to ask at this stage are:

  • What's my goal?
  • Who will use my product or my app?
  • Will users really benefit from its use?
  • Which ones?

Who am I gonna be up against once I make my app?

It may happen that the app we want to design is attractive, serves many users but is not easily placed on the market due to unsustainable competition. The context is also very important. If we have to spend time and resources to create a new solution we have to be sure that it really offers something alternative to the competition and that the competitors are not giants who can crush us.

The questions to be asked at this stage are as follows:

  • How will my app compare to others on the market?
  • What do I offer over my competitors?
  • What are the strengths compared to the competitors I can leverage?

Who do I need for development?

The last point to be dealt with concerns the actual development of the app. After answering the above questions; after figuring out how to break into the heart of the potential audience; after figuring out how to burn the competition there is only one big question left to answer: Can I do it on my own?

Developing an app for web or mobile, for iPhone or Android, is a long, complex and potentially economically dramatic operation.

The questions to answer in this last - fundamental - phase is:

  • Can I do this on my own?
  • Do I need a team?
  • Do I need a software house?
