Our dependence on smartphones has multiplied exponentially in the last few years. They might have eased our lives but we are a single object away from a disturbed life. That object is our phones. If by any mistake or accident, we lose our phone, we will be a mess.
Multiple backups and cloud storage might get us our data back but they won’t get us our phone back. Nevertheless, the concept of “Find my phone app” has been worked upon a lot and there are multiple such apps in the market. Their significance has led to a lot of improvement and research in this domain.
“Find my phone” app lets you recover your data, photos, phone numbers, and helps you track the location of your device. The battery life and details of the Wi-Fi network it is connected to can also be seen. Android’s “find my device” system is pretty sophisticated as it pinpoints the location of your device on a map. The app can also be used to ring it remotely or lock it. Wiping data off your device is also an important feature of this app.
Find my phone app has a large scope in the app market because phones and other android devices are a necessity in everyone’s life. People use them for their official and private tasks. Therefore phones are of immense importance to everyone.
Designing such apps is a profitable investment these days. Multiple factors influence the design and cost of the app.
Process of making the app
All the requirements for the app need to be gathered at first. For instance, if the app is for androids only, different android versions, various phone models, and app platforms are to be jotted down. This step is followed by the UI/UX design of the app. It will be the programmer’s job, however, multiple things need to be discussed with the investor as well. After finalizing the UI design and a lot of programming, a prototype is made. Multiple test runs and analyses are performed which help to understand the practicality of the app. App development is the next process that finalizes much of the programming and gives a final version of the app. After quality assurance and multiple checks, the app is ready to be launched. App deployment takes place after the design, user interface, and quality meets the requirement of the client. The support and maintenance team has to be on duty all the time and fix any errors or bugs that might be encountered.
Cost and conclusion
The variety of designs and features makes the price of such an app, a variable. However, according to an estimate, such an app can be developed in $3000-$18000. On average it takes around 45 days for such an app to be developed and run all the quality assurance tests.
