A successful mobile application development is one that is based on fool-proof strategy, robust programming methods, and of course what is visible to users at first – a user friendly design. These are the basic ingredients for a testiest mobile application development dish. But as we know that not all are expert in cooking, cannot perfectly amount required ingredients to a dish, the same applies on any mobile app project.
So where do developers lack in their work and not get respectful response for their hard work of hundreds of hours? It’s really traumatic to see a much ambitious app falling, not getting desired number of downloads and silently hinting you to roll it back.
The problems lie at understanding what actually a mobile application development is all about. Here are things mentioned that turn out to be fatal for an app project. Don’t consider these factors and see how badly your app goes down:
INADEQUATE FOCUS ON PLATFORMS
Regardless of platforms, mobile application development is vital for all. However, many developers tend to do one big mistake – they focus on single platform and think that they will simply port the app to others. This idea may work but not in all cases. Different platforms have different ways of receptions. Monetization approach is rather different too.
MISERLY FEATURED MOBILE APP FOR A WEBSITE OR MOBILE WEBSITE
Going mobile is exciting. Many businesses have gone mobile even for their websites. But trimming many features of a website to fit it in mobile screen isn’t a good idea. Many mobile application development firms suggest customers to remove a lot of important things of a website when they design an app for it. A good developer is one who can take all the things of website to the app but in the mobile way. If you as a website owner will allow developers to cut many of website’s features during the development its app, there are certain chances that it will not enthuse any user.
WRONG WAY TO APP MONETIZING
A number of mobile application development projects are deployed to make money through app stores such as Google Play Store, iTunes and other app stores. Here developers do one mistake to make the way of monetization smoother. They publish their app in an app-genre or category which does not belong to it. In result, these apps do not get enough number of downloads because people don’t know where they are and thus monetization remains limited.
NO APP DOWNLOADS
Creating an app and publishing it isn’t as difficult as getting downloads to it. Many mobile application development projects are launched to stores with the hope that users will automatically come across your app. Users are not going to have dream that a super-cool app is out there on stores and they will rush to download it.
If you do not create promotion or marketing to your app, there are hardly any chance that it will get even a respectful number of downloads. Apps, those are successful and getting thousands of downloads daily, are introduced to stores with perfect marketing & promotion plans which are laid down days or even months before the actual launch of the app.
NO PROPER APP TESTING
Many developers keep publishing apps without a testing. But such apps are often encountered with a lot of problems that frustrate users who then write negative reviews and give low ratings. This further decreases the overall reputation of an app and may also turn out to be a reason of user’s distraction.
