Identify the key features
Based on the objectives defined in step one, the next step is to identify the key features that the app should have.

Test the app

Testing is a crucial step in the app development process, as it helps to identify any bugs or issues that need to be addressed.

Launch the app
Once the app has been tested, and any issues have been addressed, it is ready to be launched. This step involves submitting the app to the App Store and Google Play and making it available for download. It is essential to ensure that the app meets all the guidelines and requirements set by the App Store and Google Play.

Gather user feedback
After the app has been launched, it is essential to gather feedback from users. This feedback can be used to make improvements to the app and fix.

Maintenance and updates
After launching the app, it's essential to maintain and update it regularly. This involves fixing any bugs that are identified, adding new features, and ensuring the app is compatible with new versions of the operating system.
