3 Things to Know Before Investing in an App

Got an app idea? That’s awesome! Although it can be exciting to get started immediately, there are a few steps you should take before investing in your app idea. Check out a few suggestions to get you started as told by an Edmonton App Developer:

So many people contact us looking for the “secret recipe” for making their app idea great. The answer is simple, preparation! When creating an app with an Edmonton App Development team, there can be so many potential traps to fall into that you may not know how to avoid. Following these simple rules will help you to avoid wasting time and money.


As excited as you might be to to get started on your app, it’s important to plan ahead. You need to be able to outline all the important details of your app in order to take it from good to great. To outline your app properly, you need to have your app’s:

  • MVP (minimum viable product)
  • Objective
  • Budget
  • Scope
  • Specifications

This will allow you to create a clear picture of your app to send to your developer so that you can be quoted fairly, accurately, and realistically. When it comes to budget, doing a bit of research can go a long way in helping you pin down a realistic budget expectation depending on your needs.

Choose Your Developer

The next step is choosing the right developer for the job. We might be a little bit biased as to who the right Edmonton App Developer team is, but it’s important to make an informed decision. We would highly recommend choosing the agency route as a good agency will have a full, experienced, local team that can embrace and deliver your app vision. Should an agency not be for you, you may also want to consider hiring freelancers, outsourcing, or hiring in house talent depending on your app’s size and budget.

Consider A Second Opinion

Sometimes we can get a bit tunnel visioned when making our app. By getting a friend or two’s opinion on your idea, you can accurately answer other important questions such as who the app is for, is the app necessary, how to market your app successfully, and any other feedback that could make your app even better. Don’t be afraid to take a bit of criticism, a good second opinion may strip apart your initial idea, but having good, constructive feedback may be exactly what you need for your app to be a success.


Remember, just because someone’s quote might be less doesn’t mean that should be the only thing that influences your decision. You need to make sure that when you meet your app developer, that you’re asking the important questions such as who will make the app, where the app will be made, what is the process of development, and how involved you will be in the development process.
