Got a great app idea? Here are 5 things you can do with it

Submit Your App Idea

If you think your app idea is great, revolutionary, profitable then you will need some resources, capital and expert guidance. There are many good app development companies you can reach out to. You can submit app idea there and they will help you raise the capital and build the app. You do not need to reveal your app idea right at the beginning. Just provide basic details like in what phase you are(idea, sketches, coding..), which platform(Android, iOS..), user login required(yes, no), etc.

You can talk to them, what their terms are, what share you get, your expectations, their expectations, how much control/ownership you get, etc. It is one of the best approaches for if you really have no experience on how things work in making an app. You will get your fully functional app without going through much pain.

If you want to create the app all by yourself then before getting started you need to be clear about a few things. You must consider following questions first. These question would definitely make it easier for creating a new application.

Question 1: Which kind of application you want to make

First and the most important question you need to ask yourself that what kind of application you want to make and what will be your userbase. Do you want to create an application which users can use on their desktop or laptops or an app for smartphones. If you are thinking about making an app for smartphones then which platform? Android, iOS, Windows?

Also, there is one more kind of application which can be used on web as well as optimized for smartphones too. So, if this is the first time you are creating an application then just select any one kind of app and just focus on that.

You also need to make it clear that which type of content you’re going to provide in your application. It can be a simple information providing application or just a service providing smartphone app. So, considering these two things will do a lot of help for you.

Question 2: Which developer tool you will need

Now, the nest question is which developer tool you need to have for creating your application. There is no doubt that you will require a software in which you can make your first application. For web

For web apps there are many developer tools such as TextEdit, Dreamweaver, NotePad++ and many more. You can simply write your code in these software and you will have your own web application.

 

xcode

If your goal is to make a smartphone application then you will have to download some special IDE (Integrated Development Environment) software which provides a complete environment for coding smartphone application. For making iOS application you can use Xcode for making an Android phone application there is Android Studio available and for Windows Phone application you can download Visual Studio Express 2012. All these software are totally free to download.

In case, you do not have programming skills then too there are many tools and platforms that can help you.

How much will it cost

Next, you should know that how much it is going to cost you for creating an application. Well, as I told you earlier that the developer tools needed for making application are free of cost, but you also need to host your web application which might be expensive.

For smartphone applications also the software are free to download but for publishing your app in Play Store or App store cost you some money. PlayStore charges only one-time fee which is approx. $25 whereas App Store costs $100 per year.

Also, if your idea is complex then you might need help of some developers or experts. You can easily find freelance developers on this micro job platforms. So, these are some expenses you need to take care of.

Share your passion with others

Once you have decided what app you want to create, start showing your passion to others. Just let them know that how much you are into making your application. This will make motivate others to guide you and work with you. Whether they are your senior or you own friends who have knowledge of coding just discuss with them about your whole plan and they would be eager to help you in making your dream application. They will surely guide you to the right track.

Connect with some mentors

Try to meet as many people related to the programming field as you can. Just find some professional developers and meet them to clear all your queries related to the application. Fix a meeting with them so that you can discuss about your app and get some help from them.

You can also attend an event where you can meet some experienced people of the related field. This will help you a lot for achieving your goal. Tech conferences are great places to meet technical experts.

In fact, they might add something more interesting to your idea from their experience.

Learn how would you start writing your app

The next most important thing is, how you would start writing your app. If you’re coding an application for the first time then you will need to get some knowledge about coding. Whether it is Android, Web, Windows or iOS application, it is necessary to have some coding knowledge otherwise it would be difficult for you to create your app.

There are many websites available from where you can learn coding application for example tutorialspoint. You can learn coding from such websites and also from some YouTube channels. After you have learned enough to make an application by yourself then you can start writing it.

If you have budget then hire a developer.

Complete your app rather than making it perfect

Now here comes another important point you should always keep in mind. Most of the people just focus on making their project as perfect as they want it to be. But that’s not the right way. I mean, first, you should focus on completing your application rather than making it perfect.

Because if you successfully complete your app then you will have assurance that you have made it. After that you can make changes to the first version of your application for making it the way you would like it to be. And it is the best thing about software and applications that we can alter them as many times as we want to.

Wrap Up

App making is really a fun task, if you’re truly into making it then you will definitely complete it. And these were some important points to remember after you have decided to make your own app. Once you have completed your app, next step is to submit it to directories, app stores, app markets, etc.

You might also need some marketing strategy to promote your app and attract more users to try it.
