How to Create an App (Part I)

Like so many ahead you, you have a good app idea stirring in your brain. You have no concept on how to bring it and all its profit potential to reality. And like those who have created the way for app entrepreneurs, you must learn the ropes.

While some will suggest you employ a developer and put some serious money into your idea, realists will tell you the danger is too big. There are plenty of app building programs out there that can aid you in making your vision real. The simple truth is with some methodical work and planning, the process is really easy.

We’ve created a guide that will go with you through the steps of benefiting from your big idea. Let’s begin on how to create an app…

Step 1: Set a Goal.

Get away from any type of technology and get out paper and a pen and define what you want to achieve. The beginning place in the world of app development is paper and pen, not intricate designing and coding. Ask and answer these questions:

  • What exactly do you want your app to do?
  • How are you going to make it appeal to users?
  • What problem is it going to solve?
  • How will it simplify life for people?
  • How will you market your app?

Step 2: Draw your Ideas.

You still don’t need to turn on your computer.  What you need to do is use the paper and pen that has the solutions to the questions about your app’s purpose to create a sketch of what it should look like.  This is where you move your plainly worded ideas into visual representations of your ideas.  You can decide to offer in app purchases.  If that is something you would like to do, make sure you sketch out those ideas too.
