The Best App in The World

The number of mobile users is predicted to continuously grow with 5.5 billion people expected to be using smart devices by 2022. With everything revolving around mobile platforms, the question remains, how can we develop a high-quality app that is not only functional but a progressive one.

The Best App in The World

Mobile apps have been around for a long time now. Back in the 1990’s, they were usually created by device manufacturers like Nokia and Motorola. Later on, third party companies started making apps for the mobile platforms like the Windows mobile OS and the Symbian OS.

An app makes sense or is desired if the goal is to have an interactive engagement with users, more akin to a computer program than a website. Apps could be a great deal in our daily lives since it can perform day-to-day tasks, communicate, interact with anything at our pace in the very comfort of our palms. However according to the top negative reviews and statistics, there are bad apps in the market.

44% verbally express they would expunge a mobile app immediately if app did not perform as expected.

The numbers clearly point out that there are good apps, and lamentable apps in the app market. Bad experience through an app doesn't only reduces profit, it damages the image of the company which we can argue is far more valuable.

Frustrated consumer are likely to move to a competitor after bad user experience.

Removing Bad Apples.

Mobile development has come a long way, but as technology continues to introduce new and more innovating products at a rapid pace, there's room for many developers to make huge mistakes along the way. How do we remove these mistakes then? To achieve this, firstly we need to know what is on offer and only then can work began on developing the best app in the world.

An offer they cant refuse.

When you develop an app, it gives you an easy way to showcase your products or services to your customers and prospective customers. Whenever they want, they can just use it as a one-stop point to get all the info they need. And when you update the content, you give them a glimpse of the new products or services you have on offer. This excites and interests customers and prospects to check out your updates regularly.

Most shoppers cannot resist the temptation of a good deal or a great discount, especially when one stares at their face. And this is exactly what you can do with your mobile app. Engage your customers with offers and incentives in real time.

Suppose you have an apparel and accessories boutique at a central location. And you know that many prospective customers walk by your store every day. What if you design an app that lures them to your store?
Create an offer that is simply too irresistible and notify about it through the app. An easy way to promote your business, apparently, but you will soon reap its benefits.

Incentives and offers are great way to attract customers to your app.

Users today wish for a fuss-free experience, whether they access your site or your app, and whether they do it from their PC or their smartphone. With a good plan and a clear vision, it becomes possible to deliver on their expectations

Customers expect the app to work quickly and 100% of the time. In one survey 60% of consumers rated performance of an app as the most useful feature. The same group identified crashing as the most significant issue leading to a poor experience, followed by a low battery life, while more typical “experience” elements such as the user interface (UI) or interaction conventions were less likely to contribute to a “poor” characterization. An app that suffers performance issues will not be used; 50% of users responded that they will uninstall an app they classify as “poor.” This stands in stark contrast to business and IT decision makers, who value speed and performance at the bottom of the scale.

With all of these in mind, we can get a baseline on developing our mobile apps.

Mission possible.

When designing a mobile app, user experience should always be the number one priority. During the planning, keep in mind that hardware and functionality vary from device to device. An application that depends on certain features may not work properly on some devices. For instance, not all mobile devices have cameras. So if you are creating a video messaging application, some devices can play videos but do not take them.

When using a code function, the presence of this functionality should always be tested first. For example, before using a device function, such as a camera, always ask the operating system first for the presence of this function. Then, when the device /devices is initialized, be sure to request the current operating system support for that device, and then use these settings. It is very important to test the application early and often on real devices. Even devices with the same hardware specifications can vary considerably in their behavior.

Using the latest technology and best practices in development stage ensures great user experience.

Upon developing mobile applications, it is not fundamentally different than traditional web/desktop development in terms of process or architecture. Nonetheless, there are still some considerations to be aware of.
To develop such thing, one must take note of the following :

1. Moving Context: Considering mobile applications, the user is not bound to a single location. This also includes interacting with close people, objects and environmental elements that can distract the attention of users.

2. Connectivity: Mobile device connectivity is often slow and unreliable and will therefore impact the performance of mobile applications that use these features.

3. Small Screen Size: In order to provide portability, mobile devices contain a very limited screen size, which means that the amount of information that can be displayed is significantly reduced.

4. Different screen resolution: The resolution of mobile devices is reduced compared to desktop computers, resulting in lower quality images

5. Data Entry Methods: The input methods available for mobile devices are difficult and require a certain level of skill. This problem has increased the probability of incorrect entry and decreased the data capture rate.

The development of mobile applications involves complex functionality to interact with telephony, camera, GPS, etc. Considering the desktop application, the development of the application is much more restricted to the desktop or portable device. On the other hand, mobile applications may require the implementation of telephony functionality to send / receive messages or manage voice calls etc.

The world should consider the advantages of using mobile apps same as we use our mobile phones that is integrated into our lives that we feel uncomfortable without holding one. The challenge to use an effective and efficient mobile development methods is a must to reduce cost, ease of deployment and maintenance.
