The use of desktop for general computing tasks is gradually decreasing. Of course, smartphone has become the first screen device for regular users. More than 50 percent of the internet users over the world are already using the internet through their smartphones.
And as we know, what make smartphones smarter are apps. Yes, from mailing to exploring the web to booking a taxi to accessing social media to sharing files to playing game, app stores like Google Play and App Store provide apps for almost every task we do on desktops either through a browser or through locally installed software.
Businesses are aware of these changes and, thus they are launching mobile apps for their prospects, people and partners. But to go mobile doesn’t mean you hire any developer out there. You should hire only those app developers who take care of each and every aspect of creating apps to come with a perfect end-product.
Here are the best 5 tips the businesses should pay attention on while getting an app developed from developers. They need to check on whether app developers are building their apps with keeping these things in mind or not.
A Small Playing Field
Smartphones have limited screen to display content. The size of the screen starts at around 3 inches and may go up to 5.5, 6 and even 7 inches. Still, this isn’t enough area. So often time developers do not design and develop an app with keep these dimensions in mind and thus the end result does not receive the desired position. While designing an app, the developers need work on fitting a lot of things.
Smartphones are accessed with the use of fingertips. We can use single and multiple fingers to navigate an app. But the problem with many apps is that they do not properly respond users’ taps and make delays. This frustrates users who can then delete the app from their devices. This is why experts stress a lot on keeping the app accurate when it comes to designing the UI. The app can be designed with UI so that upon click on a narrow area, the automatically zoom up and lets users select that area more precisely.
Memory and Storage
Every user likes those that use minimum memory, storage and other resources. Latest smartphones are now coming with 4 to 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internet storage and the same amount of the external storage which can be added to the mobile devices via micro SD card.
No doubt modern smartphones have more than enough memory available as the comparison to their size but still, no users would like that app and other contents are consuming all their device memory and storage.
Layout and Smooth Flow
As there is limited screen real estate available in mobile device, developers will need to create multiple screens and navigation systems. This is quite important as everything cannot be fitted into the single screen. With multiple screens, developers can ensure that everything is at its place and available in easy access.
An Ultimate Experience
Last but not least. The app you are designing should be able to deliver you an ultimate experience to users. Believe it or not but there would already thousands of app already available for the same thing your app would do. So be a little alert while creating an app for your business.
