1.Idea formulation stage
This is the initial stage where the general image of the development is drawn. The objectives of the app development are set after conducting a thorough research on the same. The objectives therefore should over all the process of the development so that all the things are covered. In this case, you should define the audience targeted to use the app.
Again the importance of the app should be stated in this stage and how it will benefit the users.
As much as you are carrying out research on how you are going to market the app you should consider how other app developers do so. In this case, you should writing a document containing proposal and details of the app which involve two different documents; specification and technical specification documents.
The technical specification and specification document summarizes the different functions that works with the business logic included in the app and the business logic to be installed in the app respectively. As far as the technical document is concern, you should consider hiring experts to help you in setting the programming language to program the server.
2.The Planning stage
The second step after writing a proposal of the app is to set a guide that shows the layout of the app details. The guide will include the summary of how the app will communicate with the user. It shows the plans that the interface of the user has. Here, the wireframe is the best guide to use.
Basing on the consistency and free-flow of the design the app will most probably design with a robust UI design.
Generally, this stage involves exploring on the user interface where the user under stability is very important. The details of the app are brought out to determine the extent of customer’s understanding and the speed of understanding. Experience of the user to communicate the interface is the most crucial thing in this stage.
This is the stage where the app developer adds as much features as they can. App developers put all their efforts to come up with an app that is good looking to attract many users. This will in turn give a best experience to the app users. Different developers come up with iOS app with various features for visual impression to the users. The features include; graphics, designs, icons and custom animation among others.
Also this is the stage where system design and patter as well as style guide are being implemented. Further the front-end as well as the back-end design are being put in place at this stage. In as far as this stage is concern it is not the end, developer take into account to leave room for future extension on the use of the app. This is done for future functionality and ease compatibility of new inputs into the app to keep it up to date to avoid the app being obsolete and of no use with time.
4. Coding and execution stage for front-end and back-end
This is the stage when linking between different components of the app takes place. It calls up both the app designer and the programmer to cooperate and work together since as this is the crucial stage. Both the development of functionalities and system architecture for front-end and back-end are run concurrently. This makes it hard for one to work single handed and calls for a team work.
The best development services for iPhone app should include integrated development environment (IDE) and various frameworks to be included in the 2 software for the robust software design as well as software architecture. The small functional units of the app should be interdependent and well integrated for proper function of the app. If this is not taken seriously, the functionality of the app might be hindered and may lead to problems using it.
5.App trial stage
After the app is fully developed it should first be put into trial to check its viability. In this case, app developing experts should be hired so as to ensure the testing process is perfect. The best developers to hire are the iPhone’s since they understand all the processes that are required in this stage. The quality of the app should be carefully determined in this stage. An expert understands how to do so, through accurate testing. This involves using different devices or Xcodes stimulator which allows for debugging.
The iPhone testing verifies the working of the app as well as its compatibility with other devices. Again it determines the capacity and loading speed of the app in order to reduce traffic and the flow of UX.
The steps we have provided above are the major stages in the iOS app development. After specifying all the components of the app in details the remaining stage is launching of the app.
