To be honest building an application could be the pretty exciting thing that you will do in your whole life. It is all about conquering the world, not just jumping and starting coding on your laptop. It could be really tempting, but wait before you get tempted to it you need to know some basic things that you will have to keep in mind while you are building the application.

These things are important if you want to build something that everyone wants to and needs to use. It requires good planning, validation, and prioritization in order to build a perfect application. These all three things happen even before you start coding. The roadmap we can say would be really hectic but at least you should have some concrete specifications, priority list, mock-ups, and user stories for your next milestone in the building application saga.

Now, enough with the chatter-chatter, now let’s discuss what are those things that you need to know and keep in mind if you want to build a good and usable application, which is indeed liked by everyone.

5 Things to Keep in Mind While Building an App

1) View Points of Targeted Audience

This is boring, isn’t it? Well not only you, your target audience think this too. But your everything will start with your target audience and you don’t want to miss it. In order to satisfy their needs, you will have to do this. So we have divided this simple process into two parts.

Step 1:

First of all, you will have to identify your ideal users. Gather every piece of information about them. Write down hypotheses and assumptions and all. The process just doesn’t stop her, now falls to the next step of app development.

Step 2:

Now that you know about your users and their assumptions and segments, the next step is to talk with your users. The reason is simple, you can not build an application based on your assumptions, can you? These small interviews will help you understand what kind of audience you are dealing with.

2) First Build a Minimum Viable Application

A minimum viable product (MVP) allows you to test different features of your project at different levels. This can help you realize which assumptions about your project were correct, and consider what will happen if they aren’t. An MVP should be based on the most crucial features that are needed in order to test your hypothesis.

To build a minimum viable app, you should consider the two most affecting agents of application building mentioned below.

The Primary Goal of Your Application

First of all, you will have to identify for what kind of problem-solving your app is to be built. What is that one thing which makes your application that “Must have” one?

Define the Process

Once you are aware of the answer to the first question and you know what kind of problem you are going to solve with the help of the application you are building, the next thing is to take steps towards it.

Define the Features

Next comes the features. What kind of features that your application will have? What is that core feature which makes your application a complete standalone? Every stage of app development requires a great amount of brainstorming to build a perfect application.

Prioritization of Features

Ask yourself the questions mentioned below to prioritize the features of your application.

  • Importance of feature in finishing the process?
  • Frequency of feature being used in a developed app?
  • How many users will be using the feature?
  • How risky the feature is?

Nice to Have Vs Must Have

You should maintain a proper balance between two types of features, nice to have and must have.

3) Creation of User Story

The user story should consist of the elements mentioned below.

  • User type
  • User intention
  • Value they get 

But wait you must be questioning why this user story stuff is important. Well, let me tell you some simple reasons behind it.

  • Easy to understand
  • Easy to remember 
  • Easy to express business value
  • Software functionality

4) Application Design and User Interface

You have the user stories ready and a prioritized list of features. The missing chain is - you guessed it- a designer. I hope you didn’t spend your budget on developers, because they aren’t always able to bring designs to life on their own. There are pretty cool tools out there for creating wireframes or mockups and even prototypes for your app. This will allow you to have more control over the design choices made by your developer and give you a head start when it comes time to do intensive testing on all possible combinations of design variations.

5) Get Feedback From Users

When building an application it is essential that you build it perfectly. Even if you build it with complete attention it is possible that some loopholes may remain. So when you think your app is ready to launch give it to the market in order to get feedback from users. Users will define your application perfectly. Once got the feedback you can decide to launch it on any platform that you want.

Conclusion

Honestly, the hardest part isn't creating the app but rather figuring out what you want to create. Taking feedback and using user stories (basically to-do lists) to create a list of things that need improving. Creating prototypes (mockups) will help people understand your idea much easier and will make it possible for you to figure out what's wrong with your product and also iterate on visual ideas before diving into app development, no matter if you hire app developers or outsource them entirely or partly.
