Everything today, is just a click away, all thanks to smartphones and smart devices. Hence, mobile app development in Saudi Arabia is an obvious go-to option for all business ventures!
The ever-changing and rapidly evolving technology is changing the course of everything around us. We can access anything and everything faster and more efficiently. We are able to connect with our peers, business partners, potential clients, other businesses. The world has become a compact sphere, as people are trying to build a business out of the smallest things.
There are several problems that persist in present times. If you have a solution for those problems, kudos to you… you have a business idea! Yes, believe this or not, but problem-solving skills have made more entrepreneurs, than you and I could have ever imagined. Application development has become a success because of the same reason!
What are applications? Smaller, easy to use tools that make things accessible; that takes care of your problems like — paying bills, ordering food, buying essentials etc. Apps are nothing else but solutions to different problems, that can be easily solved with a small tool that you download on your phones or other devices. Hence, the mobile application development process is indispensable, if you wish to succeed and increase your reach.
But, praising this process alone won’t suffice, right? Let me explain to you, what does it actually entail to develop a mobile app…
What is mobile application development?
It is the process of developing applications for mobile devices, portable data terminals (PDT), personal digital assistant (PDA), etc. These applications can be pre-installed in mobile devices during manufacturing platforms. They can also be delivered as web applications, that give an ‘app-like experience while using a web browser.
Apps can also be downloaded from markets like Google Play Store, Apple App Store; depending on the kind of apps you wish to develop; Android or iOS.
Some related important pointers
- The application development process requires developers to have access of SDKs. SDKs are ‘Software Development Kits’, that are a set of software tools and programs used by developers. They are designed to be used for specific platforms and programming language and provide a simulated mobile environment to programmers.
- Failing to keep up with updates, does not fair well! Allow me to explain this bit.
With technology changing and evolving every minute, nothing remains the same for long- the process of developing mobile apps too, is changing constantly. An OS, fresh as a fruit presently, may become redundant six months later.
If a company is incompatible with a new OS update released by Android or iOS, it can get delisted quickly. Delays or failure to update the OS can lead to cybersecurity issues as well.
- It does not matter what kind of app you want to bring into the market; the development process involves 6 steps — Idea, Design, Development, Testing, Launch and Marketing.
- The last, but CRUCIAL point to be kept in mind is — be mindful and realistic about the app! This process is fruitful, only if it’s a great app you wish to create. Let me clear the air a little…
Imagine getting an app developed, which would alone cost somewhere between 3700 to 5700 SAR. Add the continuous cost of regularly updating and managing it.
For obvious reasons, this amount of money and energy shouldn’t be invested just for the namesake. Businesses everywhere are coming up with the best solutions and it becomes more important to be equally relevant and competent, for the least.
With more than 3 billion people using smartphones, spending 90% of their time on apps, mobile app development is becoming critical for businesses. It is a fast-growing industry; it is creating jobs, increasing competition and giving better choices to the consumers.
With the no. of smartphone users increasing every day, companies are coming up with better solutions and developing new and innovative applications. The future of this innovative industry is bright and the apps are here to stay!
