3. Developing Front-End, Back-End, and UI - one to two months


Front-end development involves wireframing, caching, and synchronization. Back-end development involves user management, data storage and integration, server-side logic, and push actions. Graphic designers tackle UI to give the app a better appearance.

 

4. Testing for bugs - about a month


Running tests to find bugs before launching the app will give users a more positive experience. People are more likely to enjoy the app if it launches with few glitches and road-bumps. After completing this phase of alpha testing, the app can be beta tested by real users who may find unexpected errors and issues.
