Apps as a tool - Where are the Businesses?

As covered in my last post, I recently visited the United States to go to a wedding and took the opportunity to meet a number of people involved in app development in the US market. I discussed the specific example of Akshay Sahani and his app NimNim in the last post as I believe it serves a good example to potential South African innovators of the potential of using apps to extend the reach of a traditional bricks and mortar business.

I want to…

App Development Advice

Mobile App Development Advice

  1. Is your app idea useful?

Before investing time and money in an app, make sure to do the research. An app needs to help people solve a problem in a more convenient way than using a traditional website.

2. Have a clear app promotion plan in place

Your app may not get downloads unless you promote it to its target audience. Word of mouth is great but you first need to expose your app to enough people so they can start…

  1. Delegate profile ( delegates / attendees can register after downloading the app and then enjoy an enhanced conference experience )
  2. Instant…

The Cost of App Development

Currently in South Africa it is common for the average app development project to take between 6 months and 18 months. Some projects start and a year down the line when we follow up, we hear that the project has been abandoned by the client and so the developer too.

At DreamWeave Digital we are fortunate that our turnaround time for launching an app is at an average of less than 2 months. This means that when you engage with us on your project and we embark on the development that…

Apps and Traditional Business Innovation

I recently visited the United States to go to a wedding and took the opportunity to meet a number of people involved in app development in the US market. This was a very interesting exercise as the US market is certainly further down the road in terms of broader consumer use of apps and app integration into everyday life. I believe that this visit has given me a sense of what the future of the app market in South Africa will look like, should we follow a similar development path to the…

The virtual solution to an entrepreneurs labour woes

'Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs'. This is an adage most startup entrepreneurs hold dear to their hearts. But the cost of, 'building your own dreams' in the technology sector is quite high and the rand's 2015 value depreciation did not do us any favours. In order to, 'build your dreams' you have to have the financial means to employ/outsource a competent developer, designer and marketer.

Hybrid app development: Fence sitting can make your life easy

It seems like everyone is an app developer these days. I was out for drinks with some university mates recently, and despite the fact that only one of us actually studied coding, all four of us were working on an app of some kind. I had a guy who studied business sitting on my left, a sound technician on my right and the only actual developer in our group sitting opposite me. In a very uncharacteristic drinking session, our talk didn’t venture near girls, sport or parties,…

A legal perspective on Product Development

There are several steps involved in getting a product from conception to sale.   

A generated idea becomes a workable concept. A concept, once analysed from a business point of view is developed into a product. Finally, the developed product is commercialised for profit.

Generally speaking, each step of the aforesaid process involves a different skill set and a different procedure. New product development can be a daunting task in itself and those tasked with the development of…
