Apps are becoming increasingly popular and are now a $150b+ business annually. If you have an idea for an app here are some tips on how to create an app.

• First design your app idea on paper: define how your app will work and what features it will have.

Conduct market research to see whether your idea is viable and whether there are already competitors in the space.

• Create app prototypes. This involves mocking up screens and showing the functionality of the app and UI elements.

• Begin creating the actual app. If you’re a programmer you can create your app from scratch but this is a difficult and time consuming process. There are many drag and drop app builders available that let you create apps without producing a single line of code.

• Sell your app on the app marketplace and make a fortune.
