3. Sketch the application
If you already have some sketch in your mind or some visuals in the outcome of the app, you need to produce it and work on the information present on it.
You should further think about the primary action of the app, information on the screen that has to be resented, navigation and flow of working of the app, have a clear concept in the mind and discuss with the team.

Well, marketing your app can be difficult if you don’t have enough money to spend on paid marketing. Thus, deciding some monetization strategies before is a smart decision for your app’s business.
You can have a Pro version (no ads, more features) of your app and a free version, but with ads.
While using a free version you can boost sales or downloads. Having ads in free version of your app will return some of the revenue. Hence to monetize your app can be a best decision on a starting level of your business.

Further, you should also frequently update the app and notify on the new and exciting features of the new version.
