We speak to many clients and we always ask the question of how much they know about development. Sometimes they know nothing, sometimes everything but we often hear that they have been told the wrong thing, or have the wrong idea about app development. These misconceptions and myths range from cost to process and everything in between, so, we decided to clear up these confusions once and for all!
Whether you are fresh to app development or simply want to know some of the misconceptions then check out our quick guide to what’s what!
We have a lot of conversations with new clients, and we always start with the same question.
“What do you know about app development?”
The answers we get back usually take one of the following form…
“Nothing at all.”
“I know the approval process and general costs.”
“I only know what other firms have told me.”
Now the first one and second one are fine. For those who don’t know the process we go over the ins and outs of apps, the App Store, Apples approval process, revenue models and marketing. For those that do know the process we dive straight into their requirements. The third one on the list is the one that causes us the most headaches, you see, clients come to us misinformed, with outdated or just plain wrong information and sound surprised as we slowly correct, point-by-point, the sales pitch given by others.
So let’s dive in with a list of the common misconceptions and myths about app development. If you’ve heard any of these, and we suspect some of you will have, rest assured we are here to clean up the confusion.
The apps world is not difficult and should not be avoided if your company will benefit from one. Cost, timescales and company size are no barriers to entry for an app, certainly not enough to warrant going doing the pre-made templated app route. Always ask around and double-check any information you receive on the subject, there are many sources of knowledge, some more geared towards a sale than others.
