5 Important Tips every developer should know to create a killer Mobile Application

  1. 1. 5 Important Tips every developer should know to create a killer Mobile Application In today’s world of mobile apps development; there are a number of questions that developers and businesses need to answer. Understanding apps content and value that attract a mobile user is the first step in the development of successful mobile applications. What kind of content draws the attention of mobile users? Does load time impact their preference to a specific app? These are some important questions that must be addressed before development of a business friendly application. Here are some checklists you need to fulfill if your business plans to or already makes use of mobile applications. 1. Image content Research has shown that a large percentage of mobile users using apps focus on image and prices before looking for any other kind of information. Size of image mattered as bigger sizes caught attention more easily. Big images have the ability to promote attentive and positive engagement and maximum favorable responses as soon as the app is opened for perusal. 22.8 seconds is the average time spent on product selection page. While images and prices are the first to be seen; content that is favorable to potential customers are often dependent upon the nature of app and the purpose it serves.
  2. 2. 2.Load times Undoubtedly, apps with shorter load times should be the first objective of mobile apps development professionals. Shorter load times evoked positive responses and fewer abandonment from mobile users. Quick downloads are extremely important especially as soon as the app is opened. Emotional engagement of users is the lowest when apps take longer than 7.2 seconds to load. Also, chances of users not wanting to return are the highest when they realize that your app is very slow to download the first time they try to open it. A lost opportunity can be a very costly mistake for your business and inadvertent profit to your competitor. 3. App analytics Your app may take time to be accepted in the app store. But installing analytics has nothing to do with that. Deploying analytics even when your app is in the alpha and beta phases is critical and beneficial. Data derived from analytics help you build a stronger and more user friendly app for your customers. TestFlight is one such tool where businesses can distribute a beta app and determine gaps during customer usage.
  3. 3. 4. Think like a customer The most important mistake most businesses commit is expecting a customer to browse through an app like the way you do. Mobile apps development professionals plan for infinite hours on user flow and designs. But the truth is that your customers may not use the app in the same way you think they would. Unbiased data is hence required to incorporate significant changes. 5. Watch out for market data There are some analytics providers that offer market data. Distimo is a perfect example. Although a bit heavy on your pocket; information you obtain is valuable to steer away from mistakes that have been committed by competitors earlier. This information can facilitate developers make informed decisions and create a full-proof app to keep their customers happy.
