#2 App Design planning – Make it simple, but significant
In our introduction to the blog series “The 6 Stages of Software Development”, we already took a closer look at the first step of the Software Development Life-Cycle, the requirements analysis.
The second phase of software development is dedicated to design. First, mockups are created according to the predefined requirements and the app architecture is prepared. With the help of the Simplifier, it is also possible to build functional prototypes without great effort so the company can provide the stakeholders with a convincing first impression of the resulting app. They can build the prototype for different hardware such as smart glasses, tablets and smartphones, and create simple click test cases to demonstrate the interaction. By dividing the development process of an app into user stories, the Simplifier additionally supports the project. Therefore the app can be broken up into its individual components, making it easier to keep an overview at all times.
