Creating a mobile app: 8 questions to ask yourself

Before embarking on a mobile application project, it is always necessary to ask some basic questions in order to have a global vision of the project. This is an essential step to really project yourself into the ​creation and development of the mobile application​. Here are some questions to ask yourself before starting a mobile project:


1) What is application?

the

purpose

of

my

The first question to ask is of course the goal, the primary function of the application. Is it a practical application, multimedia, office, a game? Start with a simple challenge: Are you able to summarize the purpose of your application in two or three sentences? It is often necessary to go through this step to see if it can be well understood by your target audience.

2) Who is my mobile application for? Who is the target audience of your application? Is it an application dedicated to your company’s salespeople to simplify their tasks during their appointments? Is it an application for children? Or a consumer application?


Setting the target of your application early on will help you better identify future features based on the expectations of your target audience.

3) What will be the income system? Does the app aim to make money? If yes, how ? Will the application pay for download or free while some features will pay? Will advertising spaces need to be made to earn money while allowing mobile users to use it for free? It is important to define all these issues right from the start of the project in order to provide the necessary features and screens during mobile development.

4) An application for smartphone, tablet or both? Should the mobile application be usable on smartphones but also on tablets? Is there a real issue for it to be on both supports? For


example, if it is an application that helps mobility, wanting to develop it on a tablet is not a necessity. On the other hand, if it is a game, the uses make that more and more people like to play on their tablet thanks to the size of their screens. In the same way, what will be the format of use of the application: portrait, landscape or both? And why ?

5) Does the application require the use of a back office? Will it be necessary to regularly update information about the application? Do you need to get hold of some features to avoid having to go back through a team of mobile developers? While installing a back office for a mobile application takes more time and money, in the long run it is often a viable and very practical solution for quickly updating data.

6) What should the features be?


What are the main features of the application? Will it be necessary to use native features of the phone such as geolocation, access to the phonebook, the camera?

7) Which operating system (s)? Will the application be available on Android, iOS, Windows Phone? Only one of them? For what reasons ? The answer to these questions stems necessarily from your response on the target audience.

8) What is the most of your application compared to your competitors? The applications are already numerous on the market, which is the most of your application which will make that the users will prefer your mobile application to that of your competitor? As you can already imagine, the creation of a mobile application is often a lengthy reflection upstream. It often takes time but having a clear idea of ​the project allows it to develop in the best way. Do
