There's an app for that - Kadence
Kadence - My first app in the Apple iOS App Store
First the idea
I have found the best way to have an idea for a first app is fulfill a gap in the market for app that you have discovered because you need that app.
This will allow you design the app with the user in mind because user number one will be you so unless you are a special unique flower other users may find it useful also.
In my case I required an app that would allow help me decide to choose a new bike based on chainset and cassette combinations. I wanted to find a bike that had a range somewhere between a compact road bike and mountain bike - an all-rounder that would allow me to climb steep climbs but still not spin-out when going down hills.
My requirements were:
- Ease of adding bikes
- Ease of navigation between bikes
And that’s why Kadence was created.
How it was built
Although you can fall into the refactoring <a href=”http://tumblr.jeremyjohnstone.com/post/74379505516/the-code-refactoring-trap target=”_blank”>trap</a> when creating your first app I think it’s acceptable if this is your first app and your first effort will be more a prototype rather than the finished article. The more familiar you get with Ionic the easier it will be to envisage and plan how to build your app correctly from the start.
If like me you are building an app in your spare time you will need a substantial amount of perseverance to see it through. But it will be worth it when you see your app live in the app store.
