game? A functional application with a lot of downloads and some media
coverage leading to increased popularity of you as a developer, and your
efforts, as new standards? Well, that sounds so cool; but do you think it takes a
lot of gut and efforts to actually design a valued application, let alone
maintaining it, sustaining its popularity and creating standards using it.

Myths About Application Development.

•Introduction: Why mobile application development myths are generating?
Quite often, the lack of people's understanding about the kind of job app
developers do leads them to form misconception. Usually, an app looks
finished in its initial avatars, and because of quick roll-outs and simple effortless
design; it is natural for anyone to think anyone can design an app. Add to this,
some common human tendency makes the app design eco system look not a
• Is there any strength in these myths?
There is absolutely zero strength in these myths. Myths are formed on the basis
of ignorance, hatred, or biasness. As far as myths related to mobile app
development is concerned , they are formed because people are not aware of
the challenges, hardship, and comprehensive process that go while designing
and developing the app. While these myths are formed, a good number of
them are busted as people become aware of their genuineness.
Developing Enterprise Apps is a Tricky and Long Process
Developing enterprise apps becomes simple with the introduction of cross
platform app development. The new technologically advanced app
development platform decreases the learning time thereby fostering the entire
development effort while quickening the roll out of the prototype and
subsequently the functional version. Latest integration tools, and technologies
and the availability of cloud based solutions have apparently made the entire
process of application development simple, quick and most importantly more
The more the features, the better
If you want you to populate your application with all the features, you would
end up making it unresponsive, bloated with a lot of memory hogs and
seemingly unending number of functional issues. That's why stop thinking your
mobile application is the mini version of your enterprise website. The enterprise
website is entirely different from an application. So, work wisely and rather than
populating the app with all the features that are hardly required; just focus on
the most important features that matter. Your goal while designing an
application is to make it simple and easy for users and thereby improve on its
popularity. Giving all the features would end up making users deviate from the
actual requirement they installed your application and your app unimpressive.
Mobile app development is only about coding
People who presumably have no or little understanding of app designing often
think mobile app development is all about writing code . Well, while it is
actually about writing code, it is a lot more that. Simply writing code does not
make great apps. It requires many stakeholders including developers, project
managers, content developers, graphics developers, business managers, user
experience designer, user interface analyst, in-house IT representatives, and
others to actually develop the application in its entirely.
App users are your customers
Not all app users are your customers. A lot of people (in fact most) delete an
application they install after a few days. So, your core goal in designing an
application that works is to design and develop highly functional app that get
the limelight. So, while designing an application for commercial purposes ; put
specific focus on those applications that has the credibility to attract attention
of audiences and then convert users into customers.
A great app will sell itself
A great app works, and it attracts the attention, but in order to channelize your
efforts, and make sure that it gets the limelight; only the greatness cannot do
everything. Like sometimes good people need some publicity, a great app also
requires some marketing and promotional boost in order to prove its
effectiveness. So, make sure to design and develop sophisticated applications
that work using marketing mediums.
When app is done, job is over too
That is the dumbest of the myths formed. An application is never a job done,
but it's a task in progress. You cannot necessarily expect to roll out the final
version on ots (On this side) initial launch. It keeps on progressing, as you keep
on working on its development. An app gives pinpointed insights into how you
can improve it using stats.
Eye-candy beats content value
Although what shows sells, but in an application, everything does not
necessarily boils down to graphics, and eye catching animation and designs. A
lot of - in fact majority of the value actually and still reside in how you present
your application. So, try to add superior value in terms of contextual content.
Trusting your gut is better than trusting a team of experts
Experts often give you good ideas but it is not necessarily important for you to
always count on their feedback and ideas. Always trust your instincts, do good
development and design and never spoil your efforts using cheap efforts. And
then ask for genuine and solid reviews from people you trust, who would give
you helpful insights rather than simple gyaan.
Pay-to-download apps are the deal-breaker
Did you know the deal breakers are free applications?
Mobile users do not necessarily pay for their app downloads, they would rather
be happy with a free application forever and that where the marketing is.
Rather than asking users to pay for the app, you can generate good amount of
money using monetization models.
