There is quite a bit of information out there when it comes to mobile app development however the vast majority of it is geared towards assisting app designers, not businesses or individuals considering having an app made.
The first thing to determine is whether or not you need an actual mobile app as compared to a mobile website. The about mobile apps page can help you figure that out. If you know you need one, this page will provide you with some good general information on the topic.
Finding a professional app development company can be a challenge. There are app makers out there promising to be able to develop you an app for a small monthly fee while others even claim to be able to offer the app-design totally free and only take a royalty cut. So what is really true? Well, truth be told, there is a wide variety of solutions out there when it comes to having an app developed just as there are for websites.
Let's spend a moment in consideration of that statement.
Can you get a free website? Yes.
Can you pay a fixed small monthy rate for having a website made? Yes.
Are there companies out there willing to develop a website only for a share of the profits? Well.. yea, maybe?
Can the same be said about application development? Pretty much.
Do businesses serious about success put their business on the line by making a free website overnight? No. That is almost laughable.
Do businesses serious about success rely on some cookie-cutter site-builder-tool to represent their business? Almost never successfully.
Do businesses serious about success understand that in order to be successful online, they need to have their website developed professionally, so that is custom fit specific to their needs regardless of their industry or size of business? Absolutely.
Great websites don't come easy. Neither do great apps. It doesn't always mean that the solution must be expensive, but it does mean it has to be specific. Application development and web design have quite a bit in common. Some of the programming / method that one would take in having an application developed is similar to having a website made. The planning, consulting, brainstorming, and customization one undergoes is also similar. Even simple apps should be fairly well thought out if you are serious about success.
