According to Statista, 6,140 apps are released every single day.steps Research suggests that the global mobile app revenue forecast for 2020 is a whopping $189 billion via app stores and in-app advertising. With 66% of online traffic in the USA coming from mobile phones, & similar trends being noticed across the globe, businesses are going bonkers over catching their customers on their phones.
With 2018 nearing its end, a look back into the world of mobile applications in this year shows a steep rise not only in the number of apps available in the Play Store and Apple Store but also in the new trends that have been integrated into the mobile app development process.
What are the steps that are involved in mobile app development? If not, then here it is.
Before making any app, the developers research the market for finding the problems, people’s needs, functions not provided by other apps, the target audience, etc.
Now that you have an idea about the market, next comes the making a concept for your app, it involves brainstorming about the various functionalities, determining an outline about your app, etc.
After making a concept, you need to make a design about your app, and etch out specific details such as the window which will launch after opening your app, various buttons, banners, icons, the primary screen, User Interface, etc. Sketches are also drawn in this stage.
You have considered the various functions which your app will have, now it’s time to consider the various technicalities related to it. You have to make an API [application program interface] which is a set of subroutine definitions, communication protocols, and tools for building software.

Making a prototype –
When you’ve made the design and considered the various aspects, it’s time to make a prototype of your app. Making a prototype helps you to check whether your app lives up to the various functionalities you intended. There are various tools that you can use for making a prototype.
If you are fine with the prototype of your app, you move to the development stage. It has three phases i.e the Alpha phase where the core functionalities are developed, the Beta phase where major functions and features are developed and bugs are fixed, and the final Release phase where the app is released to the public.
No matter how amazing an app is if it has bugs and it keeps crashing, it won’t be used by people. Testing helps to find out the various problems, bugs and gives valuable user feedback to the developers.
After the app has been tested and given a nod, it is launched in the market to see the response it will receive.
These were the steps involved in mobile app development which the app developers follow before an app is made available for us to use.
