Before starting development of a mobile application it is necessary to get as much detail about the requirements as possible. A well-described and documented idea will picture it better to a developer. It is important to know if the client him/herself is confident about the idea and that the scope is well clear to him/her. The better they understand the project, the more you can be confident and focused on what needs to be achieved.
From the day one of the discussion, the scope of the project should be clear to both client and development team, more so, if it’s a big project that’s tied into seasonal campaigns. It’s fairly common for deadlines to suffer if the changes are introduced mid-way through the development. That’s why a good understanding of the project right from the start is more desirable. While finalizing the deadline, keep all the things like testing, app store submission in consideration.
At the time of app development, all parties should be clear about its business objective and the plans client has to make it successful after the launch. Ask them questions such as how this app would increase the workflow efficiency? In case it’s a sales based app, look to understand how it will enhance the sales of the business associated?
Defining the scope of the project is very important, as it can be helpful in determining the cost of the project. The client and development team should be on the same page in the arrangement of all the things to be provided within the range of budget previously agreed upon. Few SDKs are paid and server hosting is also paid. Managing backend with servers is is a wise decision as it’s easy to manage when app users increase. So, decide the budget with the client including or excluding all such aspects in app development.
Knowing the answers to these questions pre-development will ensure a smooth and Swift app development completed within the specified timeframe and satisfactory to the client’s requirements.
