The design and development process ranges from the conception of the idea to its subsequent publication in stores and an analysis of the results of use. At all times, designers and developers must work together, in an orderly manner, to meet the objectives of each stage. Let’s see in this post the most important stages of this process.
This stage is that of ideation, where the application begins to develop. Market research should be done to understand the needs and problems of users. After this investigation, a feasibility check of the concept is carried out. In this way we can be sure of how to face the rest of the project.
At this stage we define two important points: User definition and Functionality definitios. We will describe in detail each of the definitions in order to determine the scope of the project, complexity of the design, establish times and its subsequent development.
It is one of the ones that has the most time load together with development, because they are the most important stages of this whole process. That’s why we divide it into the following sub-stages: Wireframes, Prototype, Test and Visual Design. We will take the concepts and definitions to a tangible level, first in the form of a wireframe, and then create prototypes that will be tested by users. Finally, we will apply the visual styles.
At this stage, we’ll work on two axes: programming the application code and then correcting bugs (errors) that may arise after testing the application. The developers will be in charge of giving life to the designs, creating the structure in which the operation of the application will be supported. Errors will be corrected (in some cases at definition or design level) and also functional, in order to reach a publication stage with a correctly functioning application.
Publishing the app
The moment of truth! The app is published in official stores for download according to the version of your smartphone’s operating system. It also begins a very important stage for the evolution of the project: the follow up and improvement of the app.
Tracking the performance in the stores allows us to know, through statistics and user comments, how the app works, its behavior and performance. In turn, this data provided by users allows us to plan future updates, either to correct errors or make functional improvements.
As you can see, developing an app is a very motivating challenge. If these stages are taken into account and the objectives of each one are met, we will have an App that provides real solutions for users who download it.
