You’ve got a brilliant idea for a new app but are not quite sure how to successfully implement your original concept. From features and graphic design to data storage and sharing options – you’ve got quite a few choices to make. However, how can one foresee what the target user population needs and how it will interact with the app before one spends days (in case of codeless platforms like the one developed by Snappii) or months (when code writing is required) building the desired app? Fortunately, there is a way to answer these questions long before you develop a final product and, as a result, to get the app right with minimum costs. It is called rapid app prototyping, the process of creating multiple app models to test its features and design long before offering its users a finished product.
No one can say for sure how users will react to a new app and how the app will handle required tasks in real-world scenarios. It’s impossible to predict what considerations its users will have unless you allow them to try the app on their mobile devices. However, user acceptance is what will ensure the success of the app you are building. Therefore, the only way to get the final product right is to do lots of prototypes, show them to users, collect feedback, and modify the app accordingly. And a preview app will come in very handy in this process.
Neither is it easy to predict how the same app will look on different devices (iPhones, iPods, iPads, Android phones and tablets) unless you build one prototype after another one, preview it on different mobile devices and let others evaluate the design and mockup functionalities of the app. This will allow you to perfect the user interface for various phones and tablets and determine the most appropriate fonts, image sizes and locations, the overall item layout, etc.
Naturally, app development tools must support rapid prototyping, which rules out the use of Objective-C SDK and Java. Instead, one should choose in favor of codeless app platforms that enable building at a business level without worrying about low level tech details, and Snappii codeless drag and drop platform is a perfect example of such platforms. Look at 80 mobile business apps Snappii team has built. (All of them were built without coding in Snappii’s drag-and-drop editor). These complex but extremely flexible mobile business apps can be easily adjusted to one’s specific needs and tested directly on one’s mobile device in real time. In addition, brand new prototypes can be developed from scratch within minutes and tested on several phones and/or tablets simultaneously.
