Now that you have an app idea, half of your work is done. But the other half of explaining your requirements to your Mobile App Development Team is just as important as having the idea itself. The whole idea is to build an app that justifies your target users. Add to it your own notions and designs and the requirement of your having an app that is exactly how you want it sometimes becomes difficult to explain it to your App Development Team.
Here are a few simple steps that will help you convey your ideas to your Mobile App Development Team in a better way.
Nowadays most of the Mobile app development companies like Inheritx uses the Agile Software development process. User stories are a part of the Agile methodology and are the best way to describe your desired app to the developers.
An app can be made according to your needs only when the developer knows the users you are targeting. Demographics such as age, gender, interest, and race plays an important part in the design, layout, and interface of the app. For example, if the app is targeted towards users that are not tech savvy, the developer can plan a layout that is simple and easy to use for people who do not have much knowledge about mobile technology.
Flow Diagrams and Wire-frames might sound technical but you are required to have rudimentary knowledge about them. Wire-framing is like an architectural blueprint that gives more clarity to how you want your app to be. Flow diagrams show how each task needs to be done. Both of these are useful to explain your app idea to the development team thereby giving them clarity about the functionalities for a better user experience.
Explain the answers to these questions to your development team, the way you would explain them to your users. After all, the development team is designing it for your users and they should be aware of this information to provide the best possible outcome for the users.
Although the developers might give you suggestions about the features you can add, you must be clear in explaining the set of features and functionalities you want in your app. You can also check your competitor’s app for the features you would want in your mobile app.
The cost of development will include everything from the platform you are choosing, the complexity of the features and many other things. If the final cost exceeds your budget, you will have to decide if you want to compromise on cost and increase your budget or compromise on any of the features to keep the cost under control.
