When contemplating the development of an Android application, the first and most pressing question that comes to mind is how long it will take to complete the project in question. You want to know since it will assist you in determining the product timetable and developing a strategy for your product launch. The length of time it takes will depend on the scale of the project and the procedure you use.
Apps that are unnecessarily complex, frustrating to use, made by amateurs, or just plain broken can be found in countless numbers on the app store. In terms of actual effort, it is likely that these applications required a few weeks or, at the very most, a couple of months to develop.
Then there are the apps that are something really special. These are the applications that you utilize on a daily basis. They improve the quality of your life, rarely crash, and are bug-free. They exemplify what it means to have a great app. At this point in their development, apps in this camp are likely to have hundreds of thousands of hours invested in them. Corporations such as Facebook employ tens of thousands of people who are dedicated to developing their apps.
Many individuals or businesses do not have the resources, whether they are people or money, to devote even hundreds of thousands of hours to develop an app. That does not rule out the possibility of developing a new app. It simply provides the appropriate perspective on how to approach the development of a high-quality first edition of the app.
The mobile app development process is divided into several stages, each of which necessitates the allocation of specific time slots. The entire process, from the first planning stages to the launch of the application, is interdependent on one another and necessitates the participation of all parties involved. It should go without saying that apps of varying sizes and features require varying amounts of app development time to complete.
Platform, screen sizes, and features of the application
The scope of an Android app includes its functionality, the screen sizes that must be supported, and the platform that it is intended to work with. Once these items have been selected, it becomes much easier to commit a certain amount of time and effort.
Screen sizes and platform support are two issues that can be addressed more quickly and effectively. It is becoming less of a challenge to create an application that works on all screen sizes.
The more difficult task is then determining the scope of the characteristics themselves. We have found that the most common scenario is that too many features are requested for a version one app. That is a concern because programs that are more focused perform better in the long run.
A broad list of features will also significantly lengthen the project’s timetable and, as a result, increase its expenses. An out-of-control scope is one of the most certain ways to ensure that your app will be a colossal failure, which is also known as scope creep. When it comes to the feature list, the goal should be to eliminate as much as possible upfront. Keep an eye out for that one or a few important traits that will assist you in locating an unchallenged market for your app.
App competencies and expertise
If you are not a designer, you should probably refrain from thinking about the user experience or visual design of your Android app until you are. If you do not know how to code, now is probably not the best moment to begin learning how to program. This is where outsourcing your Android app development to Exemplary Marketing is a good idea.
Taking on elements of an app that are outside of your area of expertise can cause the app to take much longer to complete. As a result, an app team composed of individuals with each ability required to design an app is more likely to produce a better and faster product. In fact, speed should be one of the factors to consider when deciding whether or not to outsource your Android app development is a good idea.
