Start creating your Application Definition Statement by listing all of the main functions or activities that are key to your idea. Consider how these activities can be broken into specific tasks or features of your application. For example, let’s imagine the idea is an application that allows people to explore the animals and habitats of your local zoo. With this concept in mind, consider some of the tasks a person would enjoy with this mobile experience, such as:

  • finding their way around the zoo
  • learning about the animals
  • learning about the animals’ habitats
  • playing interactive games
  • learning about zoo memberships
  • purchasing merchandise
  • taking and sharing photos and videos
  • best paths to follow in the zoo to see the animals
  • feeding time schedules
  • show schedules
