  • Determining basic features. Keeping in mind that grocery business is a very competitive industry, the grocery app should be launched as quickly as possible. Why? Based on customer feedback, you can create decent content and improve the interface;
  • Design development. Most app users form their opinions about grocery stores based on visuals alone. Professional design will help increase brand popularity & awareness. Product visualization should be thourough;
  • Selecting a platform. To do this, you should research the market niche and examine your target audience. The standard variant is to create an application for iOS first and then port it to Android platforms. Or you can take advantage of both worlds and build a cross platform app;
