Developing an App is no more a task a layman can’t accomplish. Nowadays numerous Apps are coming up on App store and Play store. The issue is that only a few of them get recognized. So if you want to build an App and want people to notice it, you must follow these steps.
Think of a brilliant idea:
Its better you don’t follow the crowd, if you want to make a new App. If everybody is making “Ride-hailing Apps” you need to come up with different unique ideas. We can give you some examples here:
Supply electricians, plumbers and carpenters to people: Become a mediator, get hold of electricians, plumbers and carpenters and supply them to the people who need them. The whole communication can take place via the App.
Inform public on best restaurants in their vicinity: Pakistan is a food lover nation but when it comes to which restaurant we should go to dine in, everyone is clueless. So develop an App that guides users which restaurant they should visit as per their taste and money they can afford.
App informing visitors of best places to visit in the area: When you visit a new city, you have no idea where to go, so there is a need for an App that tell us that ok you are in Lahore, here are the places that you should go, what is the route, which place you can visit within a day and where you should not go.
Once you have thought of a brilliant idea RESEARCH.
Research is extremely important. Conducting surveys is not an old idea; it is something that will apply forever. Ask people their opinion, see if the App you are launching is needed or not, what changes you can make, all these answers you will get after you conduct a survey.

A test trial:
After the idea is decided, research done, changes made, a test trial is necessary. If you don’t have access to any tools for a test trial just make a Facebook page. Offer the services you will offer in your App for free. See if people are interested. What is their reaction? What still needs improvement? Do you need to reconsider a certain point?
After you have completed all these steps you can easily hire a developer who can develop you the App and you can start working. Skipping all these steps and you will just find your App getting no recognition. Even doing these steps is no guarantee your App gets recognized, but the whole process would at least tell you the needs of people and you can rethink on ideas in case of failure.
