Hi,

I am new to coding via Visual Studio 2019, i'm looking to make an app which will theoretically let you log-in/sign up, then create an order ie "Cake/cupcake" business which will allow you to order it & pay.

Now i am unsure where to start as i'm just coming across "food delivery apps" which i don't need.

I am in no time frame for this so i can take the time to learn just need to know where to start.

App will be available on IOS/Android
- will need a server obviously for payment/log in details.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How are you going about making this? My specialty is not in mobile development. From what I do know if you are doing IOS development you are gonna want to use Swift and might as well use Xcode instead of vs code on mac. Android app creation is done via kotlin or java I think so essentially you'll end up making 2 different versions of it. Just an idea you could potentially make a responsive web app instead.

PM me for my discord if you would like further help Im not great at checking threads lol

I'm using VS with Xamarin Forms cross platform which works for both apps rather than building them individually

I don't have experience with mobile development but it sounds like you need some sort of storage or database. You can probably store the data locally on the device, but the most secure way is to use a database. Always hash passwords using a secure algorithm, do not encrypt or store as plain text.

Better off using tables and or a program like access to create the tables, data sheets, querys, reports and forms to hold data and values. As far as the development goes are you doing it soley in c# and JavaScript or are you also going to focus elsewhere like did you think of using a game engine to create the visual appearance and then loading data from spreadsheet, showing querys and reports from the localdrive or loading from a server.

I make video games in unity and this can be done in a game engine like that. Also use c# and JavaScript, web develop and many other things so if you get stuck drop me message.

Let us know which direction your wanting to take this.

Edit: consider using a game engine for projects like this. It would be far easier to do if you know c# this could be created in a matter of weeks if done right. Do your research, they also have export build systems for android and apple if you have mac already if not. It has build options for all platforms. Optionally of course. Just a little advice as it would be easier to create in unity than soley designing everything along with the classes.
