Although beginning the app development process is one of the biggest challenges of mobile app development and the process needs to have a roadmap so you don’t miss out on the aspects that need thorough testing. Here are few things that you must know before you commence the process of mobile app development from mobile development experts.
Get Started with Mobile App Development
1. Selection of Platform
Before you start the testing, you need to study and comprehend the platform chosen for development like iOS or Android. Only then as a mobile app developer, you can conduct the test the aspects the platform demands. Both these platforms have their own requirements and run on a certain criteria. Understand if you have to build a native mobile app or a hybrid app. Among the popular platforms that are generally chosen are:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Windows Mobile
  • PhoneGap
  • SenchaTouch
  • Version of the Platform

Any platform comes with the new version of their platform to offer new or improved features to their users. You need to know which version are you going to target. For example, if you are targeting iOS 9, then your app may not work for those using the iOS 8. So considering the platform version becomes important part of mobile app development process. It needs to go in tandem with the number of the user in the market and also keep the latest version in mind. So the solution that you offer works for long term.


2. Meeting Hardware Requirements

If you are developing a mobile app that requires some special hardware requirements, then you need to consider them. For e.g. you are creating mobile app for selfie camera with a specific configuration, in that case your mobile app might not work with other camera or phones without cameras. :P Although we suggest to avoid installation of unsupported devices programmatically wherever it is possible.


3. Selection of Screen Size & Resolution

Since so many mobile devices in the market, the screen size is varies from one devices to another. And this is why being mobile friendly is so emphasized these days. So this is kind of necessary in the case of mobile apps because after all the purpose of having a mobile app is to be able to reach out the audience on the mobile platforms.


The screen resolution is based on many factors and thus, you need to see your mobile app is responsive and adapts to different screen sizes. Study about various devices and the most preferred or trending screen sizes and test later test your mobile app on the same.


The various Screen Resolutions are listed down here:

  • 20 X 480 px
  • 640 X 960 px
  • 480 X 800 px
  • 720 X 1280 px
  • 1200 X 1920 px
  • 2048 X 1536 px
Once you have decided on the above mentioned factors, you can go ahead press initiate ignition to your mobile app development process. Have fun developing!
