Application development Lifecycle

For a start up business, looking for a mobile app building and don’t know where to start, here are some basic steps to guide you. Finding the cost of Application development, many factors need to be considered and at each stage all the factors are evaluated and analyzed separately.At Yugasa Software Labs all the steps are explained and nothing is hidden from the clients or prospects. We make sure that the evaluation is done rightly and client understands what they are paying for.Let’s understand the process that needs to be considered during the Application development lifecycle:
1. Project analysis
One should analyze data thoroughly to draw the strategy of developing mobile application.
Setting a goal and dividing the path into milestones is the first prerequisite. Setting timelines for each milestone and achieving them within time frame is of foremost importance. Towards this objective, concept understanding is very important. Once the whole concept of Application is clear then the development can be divided into phases and each phase need ts own dedicated skill set.
Another factor that we have to consider at very first stage is the choice of Application platform.
There are broadly two types of platforms and devices Android and iOS. Both need different skill sets for development and hence, pricing also differs.
2. Prototyping
After understanding and validating concept, we move from designing on paper to real User Experience (UX) designs. Feasibility test is conducted at this stage for the whole Application concept. This would help you to visualize the Application skeleton and map if we are on right track. Here we have to take care of following three things:
a) Multi-screens – more the number of screens, higher will be the cost.
b) Different interfaces for different screen sizes
c) Native, web or hybrid Application.
Yugasa Software Labs specialize in working closely with the client to remove any room for misunderstanding regarding Application development.
3. Visual (UI) designs
So, how does one start while looking for a custom application design? It’s like a journey, which needs to be planned and it is termed as concept development and project design. Here, all the screens are provided and content organized along with color scheme for the client. Visual designs shows working of the Application when one moves from screen to screen. Wireframes are created at this stage that helps in understanding designed Application. This interactive wireframe is known as prototype or in simple words it is interactive representation.
At Yugasa Software Labs we submit final design with logo, preferred color combination, images and icons wrapped in PSD files.
4. Development:
Once all the screens and work flows are frozen actual development or coding starts with database design and gradually move to milestone based development. The milestone defined should be mapped with clear cut project plan with weekly reviewing.
Once we receive go ahead from the client, final product is delivered and the client is given specific time for UAT.
At Yugasa Software Labs we update our clients at each and every stage of Application development and provide complete documentation resulting 100% customer satisfaction
