Mobile apps are becoming extremely popular every passing day, and we’re being assisted in every phase in our lives by the apps we use. Mobile app development is hence becoming more challenging since everyone is on the lookout for the next best thing in the industry. The users are more demanding now, more than they’ve ever been.
While developing mobile apps isn’t exactly rocket science, developing the perfect mobile app might as well be tougher than rocket science. It is challenging enough to rack the team’s brains to exhaustion to come up with even one innovative feature. Every minor error is like a landmine going off, ruining the performance of the app. All of the efforts go in vain when errors creep in. Hence, mobile app development companies must put a lot of stress on getting things right.
It is difficult to keep all of the errors in check, but here’s a list of common mistakes which you probably can avoid while developing an app:
Adding Excessive Features
Amateur developers often end up brimming the app with excessive features in order to somehow enhance the performance of their app. However, in the process, they forget that the focus should always be on providing the users with easy information conveniently while letting them know about your business. Filling in excessive features would make the app look congested and clumsy, and the users wouldn’t feel good about using your app. Moreover, you would need additional time and resources to get include all of those features in your app.
Forgetting User Experience
Mobile apps should be designed in such a way that the they provide a favorable experience to those using the app. Popular apps have proven themselves by providing users with a seamless experience which the users appreciate. The apps which don’t provide the users with a great experience tend to fail sooner or later. Hence it is advisable that you perform acceptance testing on your app numerous times to get a better insight of your app’s performance before you submit it on the app marketplaces. These insights would help you improve your app, thus ensuring the user experience that users require from you.
Developing The App For Way Too Many Platforms
Many clients require the app to be developed for multiple platforms, and that is good. But when you exceed the limit, your development efforts go in vain since more often than not, you end up developing a class apart app for one platform and a badly designed app for the other. This costs your clients a lot of valuable users. Remember, the number of platforms you build your app for is directly proportional to the ROI only up to a certain limit beyond which it becomes inversely proportional. Hence keep a check on the platforms and develop accordingly.
As a mobile app development company, one of the biggest mistakes you could make is to miss out on app analytics. From the very beginning, app analytics helps you manage your app easily and conveniently. Without analytics however, you would have no idea about the behaviour of the users and their experience which would prevent you from optimizing the app to provide your users with a more valuable experience.
