Speed and quality have been the two major attributes deciding the success of any mobile app. Often, while mobile app development, the lengthy development cycles becomes a matter of concern for organizations and developers both.
Fortunately, there are some resources and tips that can be used to boost the development process of the mobile app. Here are some of the most effective tips to cut short the long development process of mobile apps!
Get the Blueprints using Low-Fidelity Wireframe
Prior to actually jumping into the long development process of the mobile app, you need to create a temporary wireframe. It's suggested to rely on low-fidelity wireframes for the layout of your app as it saves your time compared to the high-fidelity wireframes. They are rough blueprints having minimum detail. It will give your programmers and UX designer a fair idea of the functionalities without taking much time.
Release MVP to Penetrate the Market Fast
Instead of entering the market with fully robust and feature full product try out a minimum viable product. You can release an MVP and start collecting data using a build-measure-learn feedback process. This feedback would help you improve your development process. Keep your iterative cycles or “sprints,” short and release the updates in 2-4 week periods.
Get Rid of Non-Core Activities
After having your core product ready, you must analyze how your mobile app can engage your customers effectively. Mobile engagement platforms are having many applets which can add value to your application without any additional coding. Such applets are mostly sharing tools, new features walkthrough, special offer notifications, feedback options etc.
Opt for Automated Testing for Better App Security
This is one of the most viable ways to facilitate fast development cycles while also offering a high-end product with an improved security. Having an automated testing can simultaneously run a number of tests which may take hours to complete if done manually. You will also get a chance to expand test coverage due to speeding up of the testing process in the same budget and time.
Outsource Non-Core Development Features
In case you have to do a lot of different level of coding, you may outsource non-core coding to reduce your development efforts. It could ideally be time-saving and cost effective. Use the expertise of your team in the domain they are and outsource that expertise which your team is not having. It will complete the project faster and in limited budget.
Above are some very effective yet simple development tips you can use to manage your project more strategically and have enough time to enter the mobile app market.
