Getting started on your mobile app development journey is no easy feat; in fact, most people never even get started. Here’s our little push to encourage you to create an app!

Our no code mobile app development checklist is your roadmap to success.

Planning for Success

The planning stage can make or break the entire app development cycle. You can set your mobile app development journey up for success with proper preparation. 

In this stage, you will find the right tools for your needs, wireframe your app's vision, define your minimum viable product (MVP) goals, and conduct vital market research. 

Turning Ideas into Reality

Once the planning is complete, it's time to dive into how apps are built. Focus on a user-centric design, and apply the functionality to each piece of your design. Following each step will ensure your app stands out in terms of both functionality and user experience.

Preparing for Launch

With your app ready to shine, it's time for deployment. Ensure thorough testing and quality assurance for a successful launch. Determine whether you will be launching on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store (with Thunkable you can dual-publish with ease!). Don’t forget to adhere to app store guidelines to give your app a smooth journey to the app stores. Plan for continuous updates and performance monitoring for a seamless post-launch experience.

Empowered with this comprehensive checklist, you have the tools and knowledge to turn your app dreams into reality.
