Planning an app is very important before delving into any development. While there is no fixed way for creating a plan of your iPad app, you should write the following:
- Objective. What is the final design of the app? Keep it simple and as close as possible, the camera app takes photos, allows simple editing and shares them. The music iPad app plays songs from iTunes Match (or syncs with iTunes). Write down the functionality of the application in a single sentence.
- Scope. Concorde with all the features that the iPad app will contain. Feel free to pay attention to functional fluency (suggest lots of new ideas). Determine which features and resources already exist before you start creating.
- Theme and strategy. What is the theme and strategy of the app? Is it a friendly iPad game or a clear and efficient business tool? Identify your marketing strategy and make sure that the app style matches your strategy in advance.
- Describe the interface. You need to draw a sketch of each view and create the interaction of each button.
- Collect assets. Apple offers a large number of buttons and inventory icons (you should use these buttons and icons), but you need logos, graphics, and audio features.
- Think about the technology you need. Can you rest on Xcode and the App Store? Or does the app require servers and other technologies? You need to think about it first.
