In the past few days I had my eyes on some of our mobile projects that we currently run. Like in so many web projects before I detected a lot of common factors and unfortunately a lot of common missing informations.
So I decided to create a checklist.
All out mobile projects need the same basic stuff like the access details to the Apple iTunes and/or Google Play stores, Information about the app in the stores like the publishers name and a product and support web page. We need our apps to implement some basic libraries for tracking purposes as well as a basic concept telling what to track. The apps need to support advertising and they need to read feeds.
I could probably carry on with this list for a while to make it complete. But in all the projects one or more of these items have not been present until required which leads to unnecessary stress.
So I decided to record my findings and make it the blueprint for forthcoming projects knowing that it will probably never be complete.
