Create An App For Android In 7 Steps
Let’s begin with the five easy yet golden steps to create your Android app and win more customers:
Step 1: Get Your App Idea On Paper
Ready to build your first Android app? Android apps are very competitive. So, grab a paper and start drafting your business goals, planning for your app design [UI and UX], and start sketching wireframes. Share your idea with your team and bring more experienced people to the table for better results.
Step 2: Build A Native App Over PWA
Many business owners go for PWA [Progressive Web App], which is the hybrid version of the native app and web. However, going for an Android app means you are choosing a native app over the PWA, which is good if your business needs to access more geolocation features.
Step 3: Contact Developers Or Build Yourself
When you are determined to build your Android app for your business and you are all set with the UI and UX of the app, it’s time to make the final decision! Are you going to build the app by yourself or hire professional developers? If you are confident enough and have sufficient knowledge or dedication to using the Android Studio, you can surely build your own Android app. However, it is recommended to hire a developer or freelancer for this task and invest that time in developing business strategies.
Step 4: Create An App With An App Builder (No-Code Option)
Now that you have successfully made all the important decisions, the next step is to determine whether you wish to use an App Builder or not. If you are building the app on your own and looking for a no-code method, then, you can go for an App Builder. An App Builder comes with multiple templates. You can pick the template that suits you best and start filling up the content. Also, you can customize the buttons and pages in your app.
Step 5: Test Your App On Android Devices
Now, whether you used an App Builder or built the app using the Android studio, the final step is to check whether your app is working or not. Get the APK and run your app on different Android devices [the more devices you can use is better]. You need to check whether your app is opening smoothly, has no crashes while tapping on any option, page loading time, page navigation efficiency, and check out process, if there are any.
Step 6: Publish Your App On The Play Store
Step 7: Improve And Update Your App Continuously
Once you have published your Android app on the Google Play Store, it does not mean that the job is done. From the day of publishing the app, you have to check the reviews and need to improve your app accordingly. Moreover, there will be bugs and security issues that need to be dealt with. Hence, you always have to keep your app updated. You can update your app in the Google Play Store as many times as you wish and for any larger modifications, you have to submit a new version.
