Amyra Sheldon of ValueCoders enumerated 11 Mobile App Development Tips That Will Boost Start-ups Growth
1) Find out users’ likes & dislikes
Well, even if you have invested many nights and days to build a mobile application people are still not bound to use your app if that does not encourage them. They will have no excitement with the app if it does not help them in monetary terms.
It is very crucial for you to check the likes and dislikes of your mobile app status on google or the app store. You will be required to perform deep research to build an app that motivates users and sets off their interests in a better way.
2) Right platforms and features
Once you are clear with your users’ likes and dislikes, you need to decide your app features and the right platform. The aesthetics and appearance of the application work differently on different platforms. Hence, you will need to study the target platform, how it works and the specific parameters to make the application appropriate. Another integral part of providing a great experience is choosing the right features to be included in the application itself, with good content and an excellent user interface. If it does not have some basic features to make it useful to the user, it will be quickly uninstalled from the phone.
3 ) Offline Friendliness
Now, it is a new trend in the development of mobile applications that are getting the attention of both companies and developers. It is the way an app behaves when there is no Internet connection available. If some application features work offline, the user stays on even without the Internet. It’s one big thing that makes applications successful these days.
4) Make simple apps just like a smartphone
Smartphones are a sensation. From a toddler to an old person, everyone can use it. This makes its target audience even bigger. Just like a smartphone, your app has to be simple. It will not only expand your reach but also users will keep coming back.
5) Ads & Banners: Keep it limited
To make it a successful mobile app development project, you need to avoid the overuse of ads and banners. A consumer can delete it anytime if he finds it is bothering his browsing experience. This is a very broad hint and not just a friendly tip! If your user finds the mobile screen too cluttered, they will certainly uninstall your app.
6) Customized Design
There are two leading mobile operating systems in the market i.e. Android and iOS. Both users have access in different ways. Ensure that your application complies with each operating system policy and fulfill their terms and conditions. You can also go for custom mobile app designs.
7) Grid-based applications
Accept the grid design to ensure maximum consistency even when users move from page to page in the entire application. Experts will always adopt draft concepts based on grids in mobile application development projects.
8) ASO & SEO friendly
To get to the top of the millions of applications in the online market, your app needs something more than ordinary to get noticed and downloaded. Support the application development process through search engine optimization (SEO) and ASO (Application Optimization) that increase the visibility of newer mobile applications.
9) M-marketing is Gaining Traction
Yes, it is trending to market via apps. In the peak season, your product will need to go public/live. Develop and launch the app a little before that and script out the marketing strategies. Align them together for the best results. Ensure to make use of optimization searches.
10) One App For One Reason
Keep your app focused only on a single problem. Any app needs to solve a single problem only and do that in an expert manner. Don’t make an app that can unzip files and become a torch and then let you excess to GPS and so on. This type of app never succeeds.
11) Choose the right people
Successful mobile application development depends fully on the developers. You should always emphasize hiring only veteran iOS or Android developers who have specialized in at least one specific technology. It is better to hire Android developers with experience in producing high-quality mobile apps than look for someone who has a vague mixture of knowledge across several technologies.
