Mobile App Development

I am looking into having an app made but I don't exactly know how the entire process works and everything I need to get it to and maintain it in market. So basically my question is what is everything needed to get an app to market and also to maintain it. Both Apple and Android. No detail is too small. I know I will have to pay someone to develop the actual app but what are some other costs I can expect to incur? Do I have to have a website to have an app? Do I have to choose and register a domain name like I would a website? Basically anything you guys can think of would help me out. I don't want to dive right in without knowing what I am getting myself into. Thanks everyone.

    it is very helpful..as mentioned,,in hello world sample program,,i am able to see hello world on my web browser mozilla..but how to deploy it on the android simulator... i am unable to understand ,,in the tutorial it is mentioned that ..... ////////////////////////////For emulator... place the files on a web server (preferably on your development machine or nearby). Once you've done that, you should then be able to run the application up on a mobile device emulator:.. ////////// so i want to ask that i need a web server..if yes than,,which one..apache tomcat...or somthing else.... after that,,it is not mentioned that how to deploy it with emulator..if i talk about,,android... i have android sdk on my machine...

    The mobile appliucation development is required when As for the app, depending on who posts the app on iTunes, you will need to become iTune certified as well. Then there is the issue of updates and maintenance. Apps can cost anywhere from $0 to $25,000+ depending on what it does. That is also for just one media device and you did not even mention iPad over iPhone. The cost of a mobile website also depends on what you want it to do but can costs

    I had no idea that mobile app development could cost so much. I guess I had never given it much thought. There is a lot of information that one must research before they dive into this process. It has to be maintained and you have to think about multiple devices as well as Apple and Android. I think in today's technology driven world the benefits may outweigh the costs when it comes to mobile apps.

    The advice about creating web apps is completely wrong. Web apps 90% of the time is not the better solution over native applications. I am a native developer and I've seen companies make this mistake time and time again. They believe that they will save so much money by creating one app for all platforms, and then later regret it as app performance, efficiency and stability causes them to re-roll natively. You end up spending MORE money. Stop spreading web app propaganda, it's really annoying. Go native, and create applications properly. Only under certain circumstances does it make sense to develop a web app. Figured I clear the air once and for all.

    Agree with portfolio builder ^^
    When you build to be great at all, you wind up being the best at none, and perhaps average at many.

    Hi, that is great that you've decided to have your own app. You can made it by yourself, but it would be too long, I think.

    I attempted to start my own busienss by hiring a bunch of freelacers or agencies to do the coding work for me. Lesson learned - if your busienss depends on the app, it is better to have an inhouse team build it - outsourcing the work will only lead to problems should you need to raise capital.

    I can't say this is entirely true. We have worked with several individuals/startups who went on to raise huge capital from established funds. It depends more on the relationship you build with your technology partner and also on terms of engagement.

    I am working in a mobile app development comapny and know how the process work for an app. Basically a website is needed as trust worthy reason. people should not call or complaint in play-store. they used to share there app reviews and if you have the positive review then the downloads can also increase.
