Anyone Can Code.
Some do and some do not realize how widespread programming is in our daily lives. Notably phones, computers, and televisions, however, many other applications exist right under our noses, such as traffic lights, big data, and marketing. We’ll focus on marketing, specifically building a brand with an app, for this article.
2020 has been an eventful year, and one thing that people have been struggling with is motivating themselves to continue chasing their dreams and where they want to be. Because of this, Status Free Co. started to assist people in their struggles while also helping those keep their momentum in their times of success. Also, we knew we wanted to promote people to keep an open mind and have an urban-like lifestyle to respect the differences between us people Now that we know what our vision is, we have two sides that need to be addressed for the app: the technical and non-technical. The non-technical side consists of public relations and reaching out to others, and the technical side is made up of developing and updating the app. We’ll be scratching the surface on development.
Status Free Co. aims to motivate people to continue chasing their dreams
One of the first things that we figured out was how to incorporate our vision into a mobile app, and we did this by brainstorming many, many ideas. We took any idea that we could up with and wrote it down, and afterward, compared these ideas amongst one another to see which would do what we wanted the best. We also made the user interface on paper and later digitally so that we knew what our final goal was with Version 1. Once completed, we moved toward determining which language we wanted to use, and concluded that Expo would be the best option. In case you’re unfamiliar with Expo, it’s a build-off of React Native (a language for app-building) that helps you avoid writing native code.
From here, it’s time to start developing the app. We made sure to use the user interface to our advantage so that we knew what we were aiming for. This is one of the more interesting parts since our app was finally starting to take shape! Throughout this process, it was imperative that we did rigorous testing on that app in a reasonable timeframe so that we could release the app on time. Throughout this period, we started to work on our database so that we could push information to the app to update the information and give new content for our viewers.
Now, it was time for us to prepare for publishing our app on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Most of this process is self-explanatory or requires little research, even for beginners, so it wasn’t hard for us to get through inputting most of the required information.
After this, the process of developing the base of the application is finishing up! Every app has to be approved by Apple and Google to be published onto their stores, so once that is through, you’re good to go! It’s now time to maintain and update your app with new content!
