Understanding ideas with the App Development Canvas

Make sure there is a demand for your app. You have a great idea for an app and maybe even a fancy app design. Cool, that's where it starts! We are happy to help you a step further. Our App Development Canvas gives you insight into the who, what and why. This way you can determine who the (end) user of your app is, which technology is most suitable and which functionalities are required.

Determine who (or what) can contribute to make the app a success. What can you do yourself and for which activities do you want to engage someone? Consider app developers and app designers for the development of your app, and investors and in-app partners to cover the costs. Our App Development Canvas shows you who your key partners are and what input they can provide. This way, app development can be faster, more effective and more successful.

Know your (end)user. Keep that in mind and then make a selection of app testers who represent your target group. They can give you valuable feedback about the user experience (UX) of your app. This way you can ensure that your app perfectly meets the expectations of your users. 

What is your budget? Think about what is most important to your app. An app to better serve your customers? Define a WOW customer experience! Developing a healthcare platform? A GDPR-proof app with optimal security! By listing your wishes for functionality, design and security in our App Development Canvas, you get a realistic picture of the costs. 

Last but not least: What is your revenue model? You now have clear why, what and who. But what is important to you? Make a better world, get rich while sleeping or leave a lasting impression? Whatever your goal, you want to recoup the costs. In our App Development Canvas you can determine your revenue model and what is needed to achieve your goals.
