Precise intentions and objectives
As mentioned before here is where our developers and you come to an agreement about your expectations, demands and the level of the feasibility of your requirements. This is the initial planning phase of your Android application’s development lifecycle, which is very significant as this will cement the fact that developers and clients are on the same page. Decisions about all features and functionalities of the mobile app need to be finalized at this stage. This can be done by agreeing on answers to questions such as What unique features will your mobile app have to attract users? What features make your app more advanced than the existing ones? The ideal consensus should be that the app does not have a bunch of common features, there has to be couple of unique features attract them to use your app. While developing a mobile app, developers and clients always has to be lookout for new technologies and trends as It helps to get an excellent user experience to your target demographic.

The primary objective of a wireframing process is to gauge the user experience of the end user. Our developers tweak the application to be more responsive or to be more easy to use during this stage. Beyond the front end of the Android application, a wireframe helps our developers by being a guide for the backend structure of the application, a wireframe can work as checklists for APIs, servers, data diagram, data integrations, push notifications and other technical aspects associated with Android mobile application development.
