So your company wants to build an app and you’ve been assigned to the project. Now what? Where do you start? What’s all this about platforms, devices, resolutions, and density? How do you find a good team to work with? How do make sure the project runs smoothly?
This book has you covered. With years of design, development, and project management behind me, I wrote a book to help clients and corporate employees understand mobile apps. From the vague to the specific, this book explains:
Why build a mobile app: Get advice, direction, opinions, and industry research so you can guide your company (or at least occupy an informed seat at the table).
Understanding apps: Learn the nuts and bolts of different platforms (iOS, Android, Windows) and HTML5. Learn about distribution, resolution, and specifics on the largest platforms.
Getting your app built: Know what they cost, how to find and review a firm, what the build process is like, and see use cases.
Whether you are building an iOS app for iPhone and iPad, Android for mobile and tablet, HTML5—or all three, this book has the information you will need. This guide is meant to be a quick read, informative and breaks down technical data into easy to understand language.
Now in its third edition for 2015, Building a Mobile App includes new insights and updated statistics from best-selling author, Amber Sawaya.
