If one goes in detail, apps are categorized into three types :
Hybrid applications consist – Xamarin based platforms, React Native, Ionic, Angular Mobile Sencha Touch etc and lastly
Web applications as responsive versions of the website to work on any mobile device.

Application developed for systems like iOS, Android, Windows phone, cannot be run on a platform other than their own. In other words, you won’t be able to use an iOS app on any Android phone.

To begin the journey first and foremost step one need to put on is –
Be precisely ready with the idea. Next according to the based idea do the needful market research and list out all the other companies following the same trend and see their market growth and observe what all inputs they are lacking to which you can work upon and can come up as a strong competitor to them.
Developing an app doesn’t mean create it at first go and face all its consequences later but a smart developer first keeps all the coming pros and cons in mind and then function as an analyst.
After doing all the research, take the next important step and start executing your plan practically. Master the computerized or code languages as our machines totally understand a different language than us and if you want to communicate with them you should be thoroughly ready with its language.
It is important to familiarize yourself with good automation tools and integrated development environment. You can use Android app studio IDE or the Eclipse tools or can use app-builders as they will make you learn the basics and will help in improving your codes. You can even go with Apache Maven, Apache Ant, and Gradle as they provide powerful sets of tools in helping and managing your builds.

Make sure you make your application be potential enough that whosoever go over it surely download it. Your work is not over yet, after being downloaded, it must be smart and strong enough that it satisfies all the needs of the customer or the person using it. It should be filled with fascination that once after using this customer should not think of deleting or trying any other application.
Send your application for feedbacks, as you may think your app to be perfect but you need to know about your customer’s requirements at the same end so that you and your users can go hand in hand and make changes accordingly to balance and raise up the requirement.
After feeding enough feedbacks you will surely start getting some likes and subscribes to your app from people who are using it and that is the perfect timing for your application to get more promotions and advertisement.
Another last important step you need to follow is starting updating your application with new features at least once or twice in a month and make users know about it by sending notifications so that they open your application more often which makes them start trusting you and think you are a successful app maker.
