Important Questions for Startups for Building an App

With the increase mobile usage, mobile app is the need of every entrepreneur in order to boost sales. However, you can’t deny the fact that an Android or an iOS app includes several challenges. It is said that all those who are looking forward to enter the field of mobile app development industry are very afraid of the failure, but it is important for them to take some risks so as to learn something new. On the other hand, young entrepreneurs are big dreamers and accept the challenges with open arms. However, it is important for them to work in the right direction and thus, there are some important questions that every startup should answer carefully:

How do you come up with an idea of building an app?

Let’s assume that the first time you bought a smartphone you immediately downloaded an app or a game that you have heard about and always wanted to. Later on, you decided to learn to code with the hope that one day your application will be installed on devices of numerous people. Hence, your motivation were fame and money.

How can you protect your startup app ideas?

If you have a great app ideas for startups then it is important for you to keep it a secret. You need to make sure that nobody uses your idea before its launching period. However, if you are keen to take some opinion on what features to add, then in this case Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) can be the best choice, but you need to understand some basic requirements as well as basic rules for signing the Non Disclosure Agreement.

Which is the most suitable platform for the app?

The Google Play Store includes more applications in comparison to the App store of Apple. It is seen that a large number of developers prefer to build an Android app so that they can add all those features, which are not being supported by iOS. On the other hand, for customer-oriented apps, iOS is the best choice. In comparison to Android apps, iOS are much easier and faster to build. This means that startup need to check its priorities or can take the advice from an expert.

What makes you app different from competitors?

In this highly fluctuating market, your app will compete against other available millions of different types of apps. You can easily enter the market, but it is difficult for you to stay in the market for a longer period of time. In this regard, your app needs to have right features that can proved to be very useful for the users. In other words, you should pay attention on what users want as this way you can make their experience pleasant.

What are the parameters for deciding the price of your app?

In order to determine the mobile app development cost, you are required to consider the features as well as the app platform which you are targeting. It is believed that a brilliant app could easily cost up to huge amount of money for all newly established firms which have better and bigger ideas. If the price for your app is a one time fee, then as per the complexities of your app, you have an option of charging your customers.

What will be the cost of making an app?

For an app that can get a place in top 5 of Google’s Play Store or the App store of Apple, large companies can invest upto one million dollars. On the other hand, on the basis of targeted app platform, big companies usually spend between $120,000 to $400,000, whereas small companies spend between $50,000 to $100,000.
