Last week the postgrad students at Eina received what was their second presentation on the theme of “apps” presented by Sergi Martinez from Catdroid. Sergi, an expert in everything to do with the world of “apps” and the newest app developing tools, explained the potential and reality of taking advantage of this new growing market.
During the session we came up with a new web application idea. Guided by Sergi’s suggestions, we thought of what need our app might serve, the kind of business model we might use, and finally the platform most adequate for our potential final product.
We quickly realized that for something so small, the invention of an app had some big considerations, and HUGE potential.
Through relative examples Sergi explained the necessary steps and concepts to consider during the conceptualization phase of any app; moreover, the questions we needed to ask and be able to answer as graphic designers (and programmers in the making).
By the end of the last session, we realized that if we had the ambition, everything we needed to enter into the world of app development and design was at our finger tips (via some “Googling” of course) Thus, if we really wanted to step in and become a part of changing how humans interact with their devices…we could make an “app for that!”
