When you’re swept up in the inspiration for your mobile app, it’s easy to lose sight of feasibility. Arriving at the right balance between an original idea and what’s realistic for development requires proper planning. A recommended plan of action is creating a Product Requirements Document (PRD). A PRD is used to identify risks, challenge product assumptions, and communicate both the business and technical requirements, so every stakeholder understands the objective of the mobile app. A PRD is an essential tool for ensuring your final product is as close as possible to your original idea while weighing product ideas against project constraints.

  • Will the app need to be started from scratch, or will you leverage existing assets?
  • What should the app be able to do (i.e., functionality)?
  • What features will it need?
