The application life cycle

Applications have a life cycle, just like anything else. There are four stages that an application will go through: development, launch, maintenance and retirement. These stages each require different strategies for success. In this blog post we’ll discuss the best way to get your app from idea to success!


Stage one is development. It includes the planning, design and implementation of your app. The goal here is to create a great product that people will want to use for many years to come! A big part of this stage consists in testing your application with users before launch so you can identify any problems or fixes necessary before it’s too late. All these considerations should be made while following two key guidelines: user experience first (UX) and progressive enhancement (PE). These may sound like rules from another planet but they’ll help ensure efficiency without sacrificing quality; both are important factors for success.”


The second stage an application goes through is launch. Nowadays there are different ways apps can be launched such as on the App Store, Google Play Store, or any other portal. The launch stage is also the moment where you should focus on making your app visible to as many people as possible in order for it to receive maximum visibility and exposure.


The third phase of an application life cycle is maintenance. This includes all tweaks and fixes that are necessary after the initial release so users can keep using it with no problems (think bugs!). In this stage, most developers will try to solve some of user’s issues without interfering too much with the original design or UX.”


Stage four is retirement which comes when an app has become outdated and needs updating but a developer chooses not to do so anymore; this means they’ve stopped supporting it since there are no new updates coming out from now on. It’s crucial to know when an app should be retired in order not to disappoint users or lose your reputation.

How to relaunch an app:

It can happen that you’ll have a great idea for an app but once you’ve finished working on it and publishing it – no one will install it! This is why relaunching apps is so important; this process consists of updating the graphics and marketing as well as making changes according to user reviews (i.e.: new features). The goal here is clear: make sure people who downloaded your initial version are interested enough in downloading the updated version of your app.

If you’re looking for a way to relaunch your app, there are some strategies that could work such as

– offering new features or content;

– giving it an updated design (make sure this is done well!); and

– getting the word out about it by advertising on social media or other platforms.
