 Beginners guide to become mobile apps developer

Programming is one of the most rewarding and challenging tasks in IT. Programmers are responsible for designing, writing, testing, deploying, maintaining, and improving software systems. An application’s codebase may make up anywhere from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of lines of code (LOC). It takes an immense amount of effort to deliver software products today. This article attempts to guide programmers interested in building mobile applications through some common challenges that they will encounter along the way. We will look at how different platforms define what it means to be a mobile application developer, what languages you can use when developing these apps, and where best to find third-party libraries that can help you do your job faster and with less code than usual. In addition, we’ll take a look at some tools that can help you develop and test these types of applications.

What is a mobile application (or mobile app)? Mobile apps are programs developed to run on smartphones or tablets, like the iPhone or iPad. They allow users to complete specific tasks at any time without needing to use another computing device. Developers program them using languages like Objective-C for iOS apps, Java for Android apps, and C# / XAML (pronounced ‘zammel’) for Windows Phone apps.

How do I become a mobile app developer?

Similar to any other language, there are different difficulty levels in learning how to build mobile applications. The most popular level is building “Native” mobile applications with the language used by your target platform (i.e., Objective-C for iOS or Java for Android). You can also choose cross-platform mobile development tools like Titanium, PhoneGap, or React Native.

What is the difference between native and web applications? It usually depends on what your business priorities are. If you want to create an app that performs better than a website, you should build a native mobile application with the language of your target platform. This way, your app will execute code much faster than it would if it were running in a mobile browser. If loading time, memory usage, and storage space aren’t critical requirements to your application experience, then building a mobile website using technologies like HTML5 & CSS3 be good enough for you because mobile browsers can render it much faster than a native mobile app.

How do I make money from mobile apps?

You can monetize your mobile app in many different ways. Generally, the two main ways are charging people to download and use your application or offering an In-App Purchase service for users to buy additional features within your app. The process of setting up payment methods is very different depending on the target platform(s) that you’re building for. Generally, iOS requires you to have a merchant account with Apple, then create a Paid Applications contract via iTunes Connect before you can start selling paid downloads. Android & Windows Phone stores usually require that you submit tax information along with proof of business entity documents (EIN/TIN/etc.) before you can begin selling paid applications.

What programming languages can I use to build mobile apps? The most popular (and arguably the most difficult) language for building native mobile applications in Objective-C. It was initially developed by a company called Stepstone and eventually acquired by Apple. It’s not an easy language to learn, especially if you’re accustomed to modern object-oriented languages like Java or C#. Apple uses a mix of a traditional object orientation model with elements from its legacy system, including some Smalltalk concepts from the 1970s! Language-wise, Objective-C is very similar to Java, with just a few notable differences that you can find on Wikipedia here. Other programming languages commonly used when developing iOS smartphone apps: Ruby, JavaScript, C# & XAML. Other languages commonly used to develop Android smartphone apps: Java , C++ , HTML5 & CSS3 .

What is a third-party library?

Third-party libraries are pre-written code that you can use in your project, mainly consisting of code that already exists on GitHub or some other source code hosting platform. In addition, there are IDEs (Integrated Development Environments), which provide all the tools you need as a developer, including a text editor for writing code, compiling systems, bug tracking software, and so on, can help you with this.

Here’s a list of popular IDEs & toolkits grouped by language.

What should I expect to pay for a mobile developer?

The cost of hiring a developer varies depending on what technology stack you’re building your app with, the platform(s) that you need it to work on, the experience level of the developer, and where they are located. You can hire an experienced full-time or freelance developer through sites like Upwork, Freelancer, Toptal, Amazon Mechanical Turk, etc. For lower development costs, consult local developers in your area or try outsourcing development from countries like China or India. This way, you’ll have more options when choosing whom to hire because it’s easy enough for any software engineer who knows object-oriented programming languages to build native mobile apps.

How many developers do I need?

This will depend on the size and complexity of your app, but if you’re building a simple mobile website with basic HTML5/CSS3 features, you’ll only need to hire a front-end web developer. But in most cases, if you want to build a complex application or device-specific user interface (UI) or user experience (UX), it’s recommended that you hire a full stack developer. A full-stack developer can work from back-end server code up to the interface layer of an application. This makes them more capable of hiring separate developers for each job role. How long does it take to build a mobile app? The time it takes to release can vary depending on your requirements and what platform(s) your app will work on. Generally speaking, Android apps take longer to develop than iOS apps because of the complexity involved with testing and deploying them due to platform fragmentation. This means that you should expect a minimum time frame of 3-6 months for an average app, even more, if you want high-quality features and design.
