    I'm very interested in learning a bit about developing apps. How it's done, what you can do, where to learn more about it, that kind of thing. On a fairly basic level, just to understand.

    Couldn't find a thread about the process, so I thought I'd post here, and ask for the community to point me to places where I can learn more about how apps are created, and how to find out how to learn more about it.

    Step 1: Decide what the app will do, on a general level.

    Step 2: Break step1 down to specific tasks. (A computer is very fast, but very stupid, so each task is a tiny one.) This is actually writing the program - in English (or the language of your choice).

    Step 3: Learn computer programming. (This is the one that stops most people - it can take anywhere from 6 months to forever.)

    Step 4: Translate step 2 into the programming language you're using, test, debug, rewrite, retest, etc., until it works correctly.

    Phone app, website or anything else, programming is done the same way (if it's being done correctly).
