  • Imagine you are venturing out in your brand new
    car, and have just hit the road, all pumped up
    with excitement. But then, you realize that you
    don't have a map for the destination where you
    are planning to go.
  • Where will you end up in this situation?
  • Nowhere to be precise.
  • You will not only lose time but also resources
    and you will never be able to reach your
    destination.
  • This is why the discovery process for mobile app
    development is probably the most important phase.
    Without a discovery process, you are like that
    traveler without a roadmap.

Why Discovery Process?
  • Discovery process is a roadmap for the
    development of any project It can be a mobile
    app, a new website, new software, or even a new
    building. Within the discovery process, we need
    to gather critical information that will help us
    to conceptualize and design the said project.
  • In this blog, we will focus on the discovery
    process for our mobile app development firms and
    find out how we can trigger and initiate the
    discovery process for mobile app development.
  • Lets take an example of why the discovery
    process is important for mobile app development
    Assume you wish to launch a mobile app for
    creating a community platform for those who love
    fishing

  • In case we dont execute the discovery process,
    and directly jump into the development phase,
    then the mobile app can be a failure. We wont
    have any idea what our target audience prefers,
    what are the basic requirements for fishing, is
    there any market for such a community, and what
    features can such an app for anglers have.
  • Without the discovery process, the entire mobile
    app development becomes a gamble, and we lose
    control over its success.

6
Definition Of Discovery Process
  • A discovery process strives to find answers, that
    will lead to the optimal design,
    development, UX/UI, and overall mobile app
    development. These answers form the foundation on
    which we at TechAhead understand the requirements
    of the client, connect them with the market
    needs, and subsequently develop a mobile app
    solution.
  • The eventual answers that Discovery Process leads
    to, are
  • Critical information that will form the base of
    the mobile app development (for example user
    journeys, personas).
  • Information on how users can get benefited from
    using the mobile app (why will they use our
    app?).
  • Set of features of the mobile app, that will
    establish the user interface and user experience
    of the mobile app (this will lead to wireframe of
    the new app).

How To Initiate the Discovery Process?
  • Although different mobile app development
    projects have different Discovery Processes (app
    for the fishing community will be different from
    an app for programmers), there are a few basic
    processes that form the foundation for all
    discovery processes.
  • The three main steps for initiating the discovery
    process are Research, Ideation, and Evaluation.

8
Research
  • Via exploratory research, the developers and
    mobile app architects will be able to gain
    information about the domain of the mobile app,
    and it will induce more clarity into the overall
    development of the mobile app.
  • Surveys and questionnaires can be used to scoop
    out relevant data and information about the
    domain, and it opens up new ideas about the new
    app. Competitive analysis can also be an
    important part of the research process, and it
    will help to have a better understanding related
    to the objectives and purpose of developing the
    app.
  • In the example of a mobile app for fishing
    lovers, the research phase can help the
    developers to understand why some people are
    passionate about fishing, what are terms they use
    for fishing, and the psychology of a typical user
    via user persona

Ideation
  • Based on the information gathered via the
    research process, we will ideate the app
    development agency, and this happens due to one
    critical aspect of this stage Pain Points.
  • In the ideation stage of the discovery process,
    we will try to understand the pain points of the
    userbase, and brainstorm ideas to resolve those
    pain points.
  • By figuring out how we can solve the pain points,
    the very foundation of mobile app development is
    created. We can precisely, and specifically focus
    on the pain points, and ideate on all the aspects
    of the mobile app development features list,
    user interface, user experience, and product
    experience.
  • For example, for the app for fishing lovers, we
    can ideate on the pain points, and then
    brainstorm ideas to resolve them. Their biggest
    pain points can be location, good fishing spots,
    buying fishing equipment, learn how to fish, and
    developing connections with other fishing lovers.

10
Evaluation
  • Based on the ideation process, and the ideas
    generated, we arrive at the final and eventual
    stage of the discovery process Evaluation.
  • At this stage, we have the information about the
    domain, we have the typical user persona, and we
    have a set of ideas related to the features, user
    interface, and user experience based on the pain
    points.
  • Now, all we need to do is connect the dots, and
    evaluate the final structure of the mobile app.
  • In most cases, a wireframe of the new mobile app
    is the outcome of the evolution stage, which is
    created after concept testing. Developers can
    create the concept of the mobile app via
    wireframe, insert navigational parameters based
    on the users expectations, and then evaluate
    this framework with the client, and subject
    matter experts.

11
  • For example, a wireframe based on the available
    information about the app can be shown to the
    fishing lovers first hand, and those who have
    knowledge and experience about fishing.
  • Let them evaluate the features list, navigation,
    and overall user experience of the app via
    concept testing, and then based on their inputs,
    the actual design and development of the mobile
    app can be initiated.
  • Thus, after the discovery process ends, the
    mobile app developers and designers are empowered
    with the right information and inputs to initiate
    the mobile app development process.
  • And this is a sure-shot path to success.
