App Development Series: Chapter 1

Genesis of the App

  • One important component of building a successful app is having an interest or hobby
  • A lot of innovative people who need these apps built are too busy to actually build them themselves
  • Time is one of the most vital resource to consider when deciding how to create an app
  • For app innovators with both coding experience and sufficient free time, another key element of success is to be passionate about your app’s subject
  • The most successful apps are ones that intersect between being something the developers enjoy making, and something many consumers love or need in their lives
  • Though it’s a harder approach, developers need to give slightly more thought to what people are actually buying rather than what they the developers want to sell
  • Coming up with an idea for an app that realizes this function
  • Planning how people would USE this app in their day to day lives
