With the advancement of the technology, businesses are looking forward to mobile apps to serve their purpose. On the other hand, the number of Smartphone users has simultaneously increased. Such increasing in number of smartphone users are creating pressure over the development companies involved in making mobile applications. As a result, these companies start making mobile app within very short span of time to meet up the increasing demand. However, most of these mobile software development programs don’t turn out to be successful. It is primarily because of a few vital mistakes that a developer do commits out of hurry. Some of those mistakes are:-
# Failing to create different version for the computer and for the mobile phones – A developer need to understand that the computer version will not be compatible with the mobile version application. If a developer fails to make this difference, the application is bound to fail in functionality.
# Choosing unsuitable development techniques – The techniques used for creating a desktop version of an iPhone application will definitely not be suitable for mobile version. In this respect, a developer need to be careful about the techniques he applied in creating the mobile version of the software.
# Adding too many features – Many developers have the tendency of adding too many feature when he is using mobile software development program. Too many features make an application complicated and it no more remains a user friendly for the users.
# Not providing security application – However, this responsibility belongs to the owner who wish to create the application. This is because, the developers will not know about security applications.
# Think from user’s point of view – In order to concentrate more on the functionality of the program, developers often ignore the user’s expectation. Hence, a developer need to think from a user’s point of view to understand the demand for the application.
These are some of the basic mistakes that developers do commit while doing the application development job. If you wish to make an application run successfully, you need to consider three vital factors. These factors will not only help in running the program successfully but will also make it user friendly as well. What those factors are?
# Plan out the development work – many application development companies ignore the importance of planning that is required before developing an application. This is because, at this stage a developer needs to think as to what type of application he wish to develop. At the same time, he is also required to think about the effective steps involved in making the application.
# Decide about the purpose of developing the application – The application you are developing, will it be used for in-house purpose? Or will it be outsourced to any other company? If it is for in-house purpose, obviously the application has to be a customized one. There will be certain specific features that will serve the company’s business purpose in the best way. If you are outsourcing the application, obviously the added features should be according to the client’s demand.
# Test the application before using it – After the application has been developed, use it in trial version. This will help you to locate the loopholes (if there is any) in the applications and rectify it before promoting it officially. At the same time, also try to collect feedback of the trail version to make the necessary changes.
These factors will help to learn effective methods to prepare a user friendly application that will run successfully.
