STEP 1: Choosing a Template
This is the first step in the app building procedure.
These platforms have built-in, ready to use templates for a variety of niches like business types, industry based, gaming, etc.
All the available templates are customizable that is we can easily add or remove elements to and from these templates as per our criteria.
For Example, under the business niche let us consider the beauty salon app template, which makes it easy for salons to accept appointments and showcase haircuts and beard styles.
STEP 2: Branding
In this step one can choose a particular color scheme for their template.
This is made easier by letting us link our website to the app builder.
Then the app building platform automatically provides a suitable palette for the app, which matches with the existing branding.
These app building platforms also provide images to customize the apps with, along with the color palettes.
This makes the app readily identifiable and eye-catching.
The last and Final step in the Branding stage is uploading the app icon. This is the logo/icon others will get to see, when they search for the particular app on Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
Make sure that the icon stands out and is easily recognizable.
STEP 3: Editing and Adding Content
Each and every available template comes with some content that has been preloaded and we can edit the content as per our needs, to suit our business/businesses.
We can change the text in the About page and even add descriptions or images to the menu.
The app building platforms also make it easy to add new tabs to the mobile applications.
Fully Customizable content provided by these platforms, which are convenient for any kind of business.
It is also easy to remove the contents we don’t need or the content that will not cater to our targeted audience. For Example, if we don’t want the loyalty program, we just delete it, simple enough?
Once we finish setting up our content, we can set up the navigation options, using which users can access various features in our app easily.
Lastly, we can adjust the settings so that we receive all the notifications when somebody texts us or makes any order.
Access restrictions can also be implemented, which means that we can allow only the logged-in users to enjoy all the features of the app, and the rest will not be able to access them.
STEP 4: Publishing the App
When we are done with designing the app as per our needs, and adding all the required content, we are ready to publish it.
After this there are many sections which we need to complete before we go live with the publishing of the application. These include the following: –
- Confirming that we do not breach any of the content related warnings from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
- Following all the Community Guidelines of either store.
- Filling up the details that show up in the app store listing, like:
- App Title
- Name of the Icon
