In general Mobile application development is the process of creating installable and functional software in the targeted device say Android or iOS environment. Mobile app development life cycle is a step by step process.

**What is meant by the Mobile App Development Life cycle?

Application Development Life Cycle is similar to that of the Software Development Life Cycle SDLC, both follow the same process of development stages. An application is the collection of stages that are built to solve specific problems. An application or a software resides on a specific Hardware with an Operating system.

**What is the Android Application Development life cycle?

8 Phases of Mobile App Development Life Cycle:

  1. Data Sourcing

  2. Prototype Design Planning & Wireframing

  3. Technical Part - Data Preprocessing

  4. Prototype Development (Architecture +Training codes)

  5. Layout Design

  6. Application Development

  7. Application Testing - Verification & Validation

  8. Launching / Release

**Phase 1. Data Sourcing:
Data sourcing is the first phase of any software development. Based on the collected data the application will be giving its functional shape and structure.

Data soucing involves

  1. Market Research in-depth

  2. Understand Target audience pain points

  3. Learn how this app is going to solve the existing problem.

**Phase 2. Prototype Design Planning & Wireframing:
This stage involves an understanding of Prototype design planning. A simple outlook appearance model is designed on the breadboard.

**Phase 3. Technical Part - Data Preprocessing:
Based on the information obtained from the data sourcing the technical coding part is preprocessed. The Technical Preprocessing part involves a quick decision to choose between the Native or Hybrid App to be developed.

Phase 4. Prototype Development :
Market strategy is built. Once the Client approves the Tested Prototype then the actual Android Application Development begins with an iterative waterfall model. The prototype development stage converts the theoretical concept to a real working model.

**Phase 5. Functional Design Layout:
Functional Design Layout is the key phase to build a successful product. The Design layout is shortlisted from the multiple prototypes. Finalizing the design layout is the most time-consuming part of Mobile Application Development. Once the design layout is finished, coding is built on top of it!

**Phase 6. Application Development:
In this phase, the shortlisted design prototype is coded. Since 2008 Java has been the most popular language for Android Application Development in Saudi Arabia and globally.

**Phase 7. Application Testing:
It is the most important and crucial stage of app development. It involves Verification & Validating the information like design layout, looks, feel functionality(functional testing), and usability convenience received from the users during Alpha Testing Stage. The issues identified during the testing stage help to improve the technical refinement of the product.

**Phase 8. Release, Deployment & Maintenance:
After the successful alpha testing, the product is released into a specific environment for real-world beta life cycle testing. Once it cleared all the testing and receives positive feedback for the users the mobile application is deployed into operation. It is the stage where all the had work deployed is put into use for the targeted audience. Training the App users, and maintenance is included in this process.

How long does it take to develop/build an app?

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.

Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.

There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.

To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.

App Idea & Research


_Average time spent: two to five weeks _

This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.

All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.

Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.

The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.

The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.
