Almost every person in the world uses computer these days. With that, the demand for new desktop appli­ca­tions has been reaching an all time high. Development of desktop appli­ca­tions is not an easy task. If you are self-employed or a small time developer, you have to make sure that the whole deal is cost-effective and does not cost you too much. It’s not necessary that you would earn a lot through an appli­cation and therefore, the money quotient has to be handled with care. Thus, appli­cation development can be a daunting task. However, here are 6 conse­quent steps to build your own app without experi­encing a lot of problems.

Develop an Idea

Devel­oping an idea for a desktop appli­cation is actually the most difficult part. It includes various complex aspects. For instance, you have to think why the customers would use your appli­cation and how it benefits them. You also have to check if there are any similar appli­ca­tions already available in the market. The appli­cation developed by you should be somehow referred to your product or service, so that people can relate it to your company.

Devel­oping the Application

This is in fact a very daunting task in the development of desktop appli­cation. First of all, you have to make sure that the appli­cation you are devel­oping is supported by maximum number of devices. For those who actually do not know how to write code or develop an appli­cation, hiring a developer company is the best possible option.


It’s important to make sure that you test every aspect of the appli­cation. You should also compare it with other similar appli­ca­tions to analyze its perfor­mance. For an unbiased opinion, give a trial version of the appli­cation to your friends or family members.


In order to market your appli­cation, create a buzz among the public. Promote your appli­cation on various social networking platforms and blogs on the Internet. Talk to influ­ential bloggers or online media giants about your appli­cation. Use all the different channels of mass commu­ni­cation in order to promote your appli­cation. Make sure that you build some excitement about your appli­cation in the market.

Submit Your Appli­cation to an App Store

This is the final stage of the appli­cation development process. Uploading your appli­cation to an appro­priate app store is the best way to publicize it. You should not forget to market and promote your product even when it has been uploaded on an app store for the public.

Track Progress and Seek Feedback

Once the appli­cation has been uploaded, it’s very important to track progress. Besides your appli­cation, you should also keep a check on your competitor’s appli­ca­tions. With feedback from customers, you will get a better idea of changes you need to make, and updates you need to bring.
In addition to this, you need to make sure customers consider your appli­cation trust­worthy. Thus, you should encourage customers to write reviews for the appli­cation. This will help you build a good reputation on the app store. It’s always better to personally reply to people who post a review. This gives an impression that you care about the prefer­ences and needs of the customer.
