What You Should Know When Planning Development Of Your Mobile Apps

You have to wonder who badly-designed mobile apps end up with? In a virtual Whoville filled with futuristic but technologically impractical applications?

If you are ready to plunge into mobile app innovation, you already know the problems an app will solve but may be unsure of the next move.

Rest assured, mobile app development is more a matter of what not to do rather than exactly what to do. Otherwise, you may end up on a twisty, dizzying Dr. Seuss app adventure.

I Would Not Use It in a Car; I Would Not Use It in a Bar

Developing mobile apps originates with you having a solid plan. After you select the best on-point team within your organization to discuss a budget, there are further issues to agree on, like the purpose of the app and how it will appear. More importantly:

Who exactly will be using the app?

Employees with company Who-horns which share the same platform?

Or all kinds of Who-folk; customers, vendors, suppliers, contractors and shippers? This is an important question because…

The End User Is the End of All Endey-Alls

It's easy to get sidetracked by the advantages mobile applications offer your company. The central goal of developing mobile apps is to make sure the folks who needed the app in the first place end up with a user-friendly application.

Avoid Floom Figglers

The app must be convenient, easy, and simple to use. Whilst tempting to add a lot of flashy, attention-grabbing features during mobile app development, the end-Whosers may not use a complex app here or there, or anywhere.

When you know the difference between redundancies and necessary technological changes, once you contact your designer to collaborate, fine-tune plans, and start mobile app development, it's easier to avoid the creeps.

I Do Not Want to Hear a Creep; I Do Not Want to Hear a Peep

Development creep (scope creep) can occur before collaborating with a custom software designer as well as after development begins.

The original plan is added to….


(so is development)


And thrice.

(so is development)

Interested Whos chime in a smidge here and a smidget …


And …


That’s what development creep looks like.

Persons previously not involved may intervene without understanding the scope of the plans. Then redundancies creep in like the Grinch on Christmas Eve. Developing mobile apps lurches forward, and then stalls, causing unnecessary delays and expenses.

While app development is intended to be flexible and adapt to technological changes, keeping your focus nearer to the original goal helps developers avoid the creeps.

Ask the Right Riddlers

Here are some questions you might want to ask the developer you partner with:

  • What can the end-users and your organization expect from the app?

  • Can applications be extended later on?

  • How scalable is the app?

  • What features could potentially be redundant Floom Figglers and what will better serve my organization and end-users?

  • Can the mobile app be implemented in another part of the business organization and how?

  • Will some of your existing technology need a tweak so the mobile app performs as planned?
