NO! No you shouldn’t!
I’m here to save you money, so trust me on this one
20+ years at the sharp end of commercial software R&D teaches you a thing or two
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for developing software
But you need to do it for the right reasons
And sadly few do
All too often, the desire to make an app comes from little more than a thought bubble
And guess what, someone probably had it before
And as there are millions of apps on Google Play and the Apple store, it probably already exists
A few days of research to find the right one it is far cheaper than months of development
But, if you have an issue unique to your business and a user base you can control, you may have a valid business case
One I was involved in empowered 3000+ contractors and saved hundreds of calls to a call centre
But even that wasn’t actually an app
It was a website
And it’s an IMPORTANT distinction
Because websites work everywhere
Android, Apple, Mac, Windows, mobile, tablet and even a TV
A far more flexible solution
So, if you’re thinking of an app, is it the first answer or the right one?
