A quick start guide – how to create an app

Mobile apps bridge the gap between personal and public experience.

They empower users because they get to choose the apps they want to download. That choice makes mobile apps effective marketing tools — the user already likes the app, that’s why they downloaded it in the first place.

So we decided to create a guide to explain why your business needs an app, what platforms you should consider and share a few ideas that should help you develop apps that effectively support your marketing communications. This is a taster of the guide with some of the key things you should consider before developing a mobile application for your business.

Does your business need a mobile app?

Brands are realising that as we live in a multi screen world we need to cater for mobile users more and more. And it’s not just making sure you have a mobile optimised website, recent research from Adobe Digital shows that users of apps are more brand loyal.

New data from Adobe Digital Index measures engagement on apps versus the Web on a sample of more than 600 brands which should make this message clear for marketers. According to the data, building a mobile app is a worthy investment because users of mobile apps are more loyal to the brand versus those who just visit the Web site from their mobile devices.

Apps Used For Longer And More Frequently
Tablet users spend the better part of a half hour (24 minutes) in an app session, while smartphone sessions are much shorter at nearly 13 minutes. Compared to those browsing Web sites, however, the app sessions are three to four times longer. Consumers use the average smartphone apps more than twice as often as they visit the typical mobile Web site. All combined, the app usage outpaces mobile Web visits by an average of 100 minutes per month.

The concept of augmented reality (AR) isn’t new, of course. Described in broad strokes, it’s a notion in which you or your device will be exposed to information about the places you visit only when you reach those places.  Strategy Analytics anticipates location-based search revenue will reach $6 billion by 2017.
