  • There is good advice in here. We've spent 6 months building an app and have made many (expensive) mistakes. It's hard to find resources that you should listen to and follow. This one is 90% bang on.

    • Apps Available on iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Win Phone and HTML5 How to go about an App Idea Guide.
    • Phoenix GMN Ltd Every Phenomenon Begins Somewhere.. Got an App idea? Now what? PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser Preparations before you speak to an App developer.. 1. Research via google and other sources like App Stores/App review sites, whether the same/similar idea is already done or not. With Millions of Apps already on App Stores chances are 9/10 ideas are already done. 2. Always do competition analyses about similar apps. Note down what competition is doing well. Improvise on it. 3. If no one has done it before then do a verbal survey with friends, colleagues and family. Share whatever part of idea you can, but do it. Find from them whether it appeals to diverse groups of people or not. Effort at this stage can save you lots of time and money later.

PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser Preparations before you speak to an App developer.. 4. Make sure your idea solves a real problem for most people. Not something which just you fancy. 5. Make sure that your idea has repeat-use appeal. If its an entertaining idea make sure you add novelty in it on every use e.g. Gamify it. Most crazy fun ideas go popular for a month or so and then are forgotten. They have one time appeal/surprise/attraction. 6. Look in the apps you use everyday and repeatedly. Find what you like in them. Do they save time? Make a task more efficient? Better organised? New fun everyday? Add those elements in your idea.

PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser Preparations before you speak to an App developer.. 7. Please don’t carry your idea just in you head. Start articulating it on paper. Brain storm it. Add sections like research, feedback, competition analyses, gamifications features, revenue generating options, Marketing & Promotions plan in it. 8. When you are satisfied with your research & brain storm and have nothing more to add to your app idea document then start making a features list and start prioritising it into versions. Don’t add too much in Version 1. Keep It Simple – Keep It Appealing – Keep It Useful. (KIS-KIA-KIU) PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser

PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser Preparations before you speak to an App developer.. 9. Once you have version 1 features list sorted. Start making a requirements specification document. It should have Table of Contents, Introduction to idea, Functionality with High Level requirements and tables of detailed requirements for every High Level requirement. Label the requirements with “Must Have”, “Should have”, “Could Have”, “Would be nice to have” 10. Now you need to make wireframes of your app idea to show a user journey inside the app. These can be hand made sketches, or made using Wireframing tools like Balsamiq, Creately.com, justinmind, Sketchy for iPad, Flinto etc. Give every screen a Number and then refer to these numbers in your specifications document PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser

You also need to study a little about SDKs (facebook/twitter), XML, JSON, CMS, Cloud, Analytics, Push, T&Cs, Data Protection Compliance, web services, database, any licensed/paid services you need in app, a web server & launch site. Web Server should be capable of sending push notifications to devices. 12. You will also need a Business License with App Stores to submit the app and with Mobile Ad Networks for earning ad revenue. If your App Developer submits the app then in-App revenue will be paid to him (or agency) by app stores and ad networks. PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser
    • Phoenix GMN Ltd Every Phenomenon Begins Somewhere.. Execution! Hiring an App Developer PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser Hiring an App developer.. 1. To save time and money, Google about app developers with good portfolios in your local city. But if you have made your documents well, then even a remote developer can do a good job. In Internet connected economy, with skype/google hangout and various free screen sharing tools its not difficult to work with remote developers. All big companies do that. 2. Decide which OS platform first, iPhone, Android, WinPhone, Blackberry according to your target audience market. 3. Decide - Single developer or company with multi OS skillset?

Decide who’ll provide the actual design graphics used in app – You, Your designer (99designs.com) or App developer/Agency? 5. NDAs signed? Code Ownership & IP agreements signed? 6. An App ideally needs 3 different programmers – DB Admin, Web Services (PHP), iPhone/Android. Decide on dealing directly with DB, Web Services, in-device programmers or One Project Co- ordinator. Do you have any previous experience with geeks? 7. Agree on development milestones for payment to provider. 8. Maintain regular communication with Devs and test app every week. Provide written feedback. Keep a trail. PhoenixGMN.com - Your Friendly App Development Partner and Adviser
