We recently created a WordPress app for one of our clients. With this and our past experience in the field of WordPress app and SaaS development, we thought it would be fair to share our knowledge. There are quite a few lessons we learned while building WordPress apps. Here are nine of them. 1. Start with a minimum viable product The first thing you want to do with any idea — not just a WordPress app — is wireframe and brainstorm the product or service you are selling. There is a whole job description for the management of these ideas, “creatively” titled Product Management. The idea with this role and with the build of an app is to keep it as simple as possible while still providing a solid customer experience. A good example of keeping your initial idea simple is Spotify. The product launched in February 2009 as a music streaming service where you could listen to what you wanted. They had a free and paid membership model and the ability to search for and stream music. That was it. But that was enough. For those doing the math, that was six years ago. Today Spotify has 1,500 employees and continues to receive hundreds of millions in shareholder capital. Six years later, Spotify continues
