Steps to Get You Started With Your Mobile App Idea

The mobile app market is booming right now, and you’re ready to take the leap after saying, “There should be an app for that.” But what’s the blueprint to making sure that you’ve primed yourself for success? In this article, we’ll take you through a checklist of actions to consider when starting out in the mobile app world.

Talk to your potential customers

So far, the only people that like your app idea is you, a few friends and your mum. But you’ve got to go broader if you’re wanting to validate your idea. Start by brainstorming a few potential audiences you’re reaching, and focus in on your main one. Go out and ask people in this market what they need help with.

When conducting this research, make sure you’re not in ‘sales pitch’ mode, with lead-in questions that just validate your idea. Ask open-ended questions to avoid confirmation bias and let your ideas naturally evolve.

What you’ll end up doing is having these potential customers develop your humble idea for you. This is what you want! Hopefully, you’ll also have a few early adopters you can reach out to when you’re going into marketing testing.

Develop your business plan

There are thousands of templates out there for developing you business plan. Pick one and start the planning. It’s important to make sure you have some clear objectives that you’d like for this business to achieve. You may want to consider the development of plans surrounding how you will brand and represent your budding business. Other important things to consider are the key strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that are involved in embarking on this project. Keeping all this in mind means you’ve got a clear game plan going into this space.

Start Prototyping

In order to deliver the best product to the market, you will definitely need to develop a bias for action. No investor or customer is going to merely buy into an ‘idea’. Start by creating prototypes that can illustrate how your app will operate. At this point, talking to an experienced User Experience strategist may be a worthwhile investment. Usability is incredibly important for the success of the app, so these prototypes can do the selling. You’ll also be able to gauge what is technically possible and how much it will initially cost to get this project started.

Execution and Iteration

After gathering all that valuable feedback, it is important to take those points and keep iterating on your prototypes. Once you have a solid foundation for a minimal viable product (MVP) and the funds to make it happen, you can start designing and building the app with the right technical partner. From this point, the cycle continues – iterate, execute, iterate, execute…

iPad Mini: For the Sake of Loyal Users and in Search of Marginal Users

From different sources the news are coming up that Apple is working on its iPad mini to ignite the iPad market again. If the New York Times is to be believed, Apple is on its way to bring iPad with 7.85 inch screen, with ‘significantly less’ in price compared to its $499 iPad. However no official statement has come up, so far.
Why smaller iPad? In order to safeguard their ecosystem. Because, for the first time iPad has got a potential rival for which the public acceptance throughout the globe is such overwhelming that it might soon change the equation of global tablet market share.

Nexus7 has stirred up the tablet giants’ think tanks to make strategies seriously on the 7 inch option. Though creativity has no end, at the moment the number 7-inch may have overwhelmed the iPad producers.

Surely iPad doesn’t want to loosen its grip from its loyal users, plus approaching the marginal users. So, it will be no wonder if the iPad lovers hear of Apple bringing the mini iPad with the technical perfection for which it is recognized.

Currently iPad has covered 62.8% of the global tablet market share.

Size Matters: Light on hand, easy in purse and fit in pocket

Since the Nexus7 has shown the depth of willingness of people carrying their gadget with them all the time, definitely the 9.56 inch tall market king will again come with all its features and application armies to re-confirm its undisputed empire of the global iPad market share.

Now men want it in their pocket and women in their purse. However comfortable size with smart functionality is what tablet users prefer.

Users who wanted it to be as lighter as they could hold hours without feeling its weight got their answer in Nexus7. People who were using iPad, who had tried Kindle Fire and couldn’t shift their heart from iPad to Kindle Fire also got their answer in Nexus7. They got the feel of technical sophistication of iPad and innovative size in it.

Being undisputed king of the tablet world, iPad will certainly harness this new corner which they have not tried yet. That is why speculation of iPad mini version sized 7.85-inch screen is pretty high.

Price Tag: users expect it to be ‘significantly reduced’

iPad can’t afford to enter the market without considering price tag hugely. Otherwise people will not find any reason to buy $499 instead of $199 with almost same level of utility.

Before this, it was not much worried about the price because no one could counter iPad in its functionality. However this time users have tasted the low price with equally sophisticated and user friendly fun box.
