Once you are ready to capital your app idea and have confirmed mobile app development company then now it's time to define an architecture for your mobile app. Though the hired company would support you with best of its knowledge still, assignment done from your part is advantageous to make well-informed decisions. This article is specially designed for the startups or business owners that are making its move ahead with business app development. The checklist of components will help you to define the best strategy before beginning with mobile app development.

1. Selection Of Device and Operating System:

The majority of the global population is engaged with android and iOS devices. Very few audiences are still sticked with windows, blackberry or other devices. Almost 94% of the smartphone market is covered by Android and iPhone mobiles. So, the first thing that you need to decide is on which device you want your app to perform.

This decision heavily depends on the geographical region you are surrounded with. Iphone enjoyed its largest market value in USA, Japan, Australia where Android is more dominant in countries like India, Germany, France etc. As both the operating system is augmenting at equal rates, it is advisable to develop your app in bothe the platforms.

2. Technology Stack Selection:

It is one of the most discussed parts where developers are always baffled to select the best for app development. Once you have decided preferred OS, the next step is to move ahead with right platform selection. So, here you go with your choices.

Native Apps:

If you go with native approach then such type of apps can be developed only for a specific device and operating system. It means such apps would be platform specific and can be downloaded only from respective app stores (i.e Android or iOS).

Cross-Platform Or Hybrid App Development:

It is one of the best options for those who wants to outreach their app to the maximum user base. Just write app code once and then deploy it on multiple platforms and OS with a little refinement. As the name clearly suggest, the cross-platform app can work on all devices.

The only difference lies between cross-platform and hybrid app development is a flexibility of the technology used. The former one makes use of technologies like Xamarine while hybrid app works with technologies like JavaScript and HTLM5. Cross-platform is considered more powerful when compared with hybrid app development.

Mobile Web App:

The mobile web app is revamped version of application where mobile optimized web pages look similar to the app that runs from a central server over the internet.

3. Tools and Framework:

Native Tools:

If you are making an app regardless of native or hybrid approach then you will need too many tools for each & every platform. So make sure that you checkout developers guidelines for every mobile platform.

Development Platform:

To simplify app development process, the variety of solution platform have emerged to maintain cross-platform app from a single codebase. Eg: You can make use of mobile first foundation platform to manage HTML, hybrid, and native app.

There will be lot more architectural decisions that you will have to make regarding integration, hosting and testing of your mobile solution. Here, I have focused on the major components of the mobile app architecture that will serve as a guideline to the mobile app development team. Good Luck!
