5 Things To Consider When Going For A Mobile App Development

No matter what your business size is, but you have already discovered the worth of investing in mobility. Some of you have already introduced apps to your business, either as native or web, but many of you are still in doubt whether it’s the right to take this step or not.

But it’s not easy to launch mobile app development. It’s why because there are certain things that should go right to make an app successful. And if they don’t, even the best app idea would fail.

Today, mobile app development has become a well defined process. We have millions of apps published in less than a decade. This has, of course, exposed developers to assorted practical lessons that have helped them standardize the mobile app development process.

Still, there are many things that can hamper the whole process and result in a ‘blow the standard’ app. Here are those things:

The inputs provided by clients are quite valuable in taking an app project in the right direction, but if it’s overdone, the end product may go off the track.

Designing an app through own approach

The inputs provided by clients are quite valuable in taking an app project in the right direction, but if it’s overdone, the end product may go off the track.

Generally, clients come with no or little awareness of tech-things related to their mobile app development. They have an idea and to realize that idea, they want to hire developers.

Then they start providing details and keep this trend continuous throughout the development. Here, they forget that the mobile app development is a step-by-step process and everything they expect cannot be translated into an app.

Before developers begin building all required features and functions for an app, they conduct research, analyze the idea, test for its feasibility, collect feedback and then put everything into coding.

It’s known as the conceptualization and, it’s done in primary development phases. Now, if a client provides inputs in the middle of the course and expects to implement the chances anyhow, the task becomes difficult for developers to complete.

Taking marketing as the last thing to do and thinking it doesn’t require any investment.  

In many cases, marketing and promotion of an app are undervalued by businesses. They think that if an app is given the best treatment for UI, UX, conceptualization, and development, then the app carries sufficient value to grab the users’ attention.

But, will users have a dream that your app is now out in the in the market? In fact, users will never know about your app if you do not inform them. To inform users about your app, you will require running marketing and promotion campaigns because there are millions of apps available in leading stores and thousands of them may be related to your app idea alone.

So, there is already a tough competition among apps and, you can win this completion only with a sound marketing and promotion plan.

If your app itself is brand promotion tool, you will still need to promote it. Leaving an app to get noticed automatically is like leaving a needle in the haystack and expecting people will find it. Will it happen? No, it won’t.

This is why you need to get the best plan to market and promote your app through every possible channel and get the attention of potential users.

Believing that adding more future to the app will make it successful.

Many app owners want developers to add numerous features to their apps. They want to fill the app with unnecessary features not contributing in its core functionality. This is how they make a big mistake and turn the end-product good for nothing.

Businesses believe that by adding more features to an app, they would make users like it and continue use for a long time. But it’s not the right way. People like smartphone and apps because of their simplicity.

Unlike desktops, no smartphone requires users to go through training. Users expect the same simplicity from an app they use, but too many features will make it complex. People do not like to use a complex app if they already live a hectic life following fix schedules.

So, when applying a mobile app project for your customer or employees, make sure you keep it focused to the core issues which it solves productively and creatively. If it does that, it will become successful, too.

Applying similar approach to iOS and Android development and believing there is not much difference between them both.

This is another great thought that many app-owners want to go with and, this leads them to the way of failure. Android and iOS apps respectively hold 85% and 11% of market shares and platform-wise, they are quite different from each other. They have different user-groups and have varying demands in different parts of the world.

That’s why businesses need at least two different approaches – one for Android and other for iOS – to implement their apps.

Hiring developers on the basis of their pricing.

The money is the key factor driving the whole world. So, it is natural to relate services provided by a developer to its pricing. There is nothing wrong in that. When you hire a company, you want to keep investment as low as possible. You create inquiries to a number of companies and ask them for providing quotations after letting them know the basic ideas behind your app. Now what will you do? Will you prefer a development company on the basis of its most reasonable service-prices? If you do that then you will do big mistake.

Cheap is always not the best when it comes to a mobile app development requiring developers to deal with a variety of technologies, systems and processes for a single app.

It’s certainly suspicious if a developer is offering its services for considerably less price while others have quoted relatively too higher for developing the same app.

The best way to hire an app developer is you get its portfolio and evaluate it for the quality of services it has offered to its prior clients.
