Have An Idea For An App? Here’s What To Do!
Have an idea for an app? Don’t have any coding skills? Well, you’re just like the rest of us; but that shouldn’t stop you from pursuing your idea.
Most ideas don’t slip between the cracks and fall by the way side because people don’t have a particular skill, or enough capital; they get pushed to the back burner because of lack of execution. How many times have you said to yourself: “One day, I’ll do…”.
Well, if you have an idea for a mobile app, don’t let that example be you; because it’s easier than you think.
PLUS: We have good news for you! You can get your app idea protected, get your app developed, and distribute and market your app all from one place!
But where do you start?

But then what?
Ready your app idea for development: Unless you’re a skilled mobile app developer, you’re going to want to organize your ideas about your mobile app in a fashion that will be conducive to getting your app developed. You don’t need to be a whiz in flow charts and process maps; but you’re going to want to think about:
- How do you want your app to look?
- What operating systems do you want it to be on? (Android, Apple’s iOS)
- What will your app do?
- What is the elevator pitch for your app? (How would you describe your app in 1 or 2 sentences?)
- What is your budget for your app?
- How will you monetize your app? Will it be free to download and show ads? Will it be free to download but charge for additional content within the app? Will you charge to download it?
You’re going to want to have these items in mind and then head on over to Source Approach.
