Aspect of an ideal mobile app

Mobile apps have become an essential part of modern life. From inspiring an entire generation of on-demand apps for gaming, e-Commerce apps, fitness apps; the mobile application has empowered users to book tickets, shop online, book a taxi, order food, track fitness and health, and play games-all at their fingertips.

It is more mandatory to have a mobile app for your business. Whether it is a large business or a newly launched startup, a service industry, or a product offering, a mobile app is a great way to connect with your target audience.

Things to Know Before Getting your Ideal Mobile App Developed

Purpose of App

It all starts with a great idea. But the idea that you find revolutionary basically needs to be executed, to be transformed into a successful product. So, the first and most important step in mobile development is to find the purpose of your app and test it against reality.

Determine your app's target group, where they are, why they will download and use your app, what your competitors offer similar services or products, and what features your app will require. This research will take at least a few days.

Your Technical Requirements

App developers and designers need to know in detail about functionalities, IoT product or device integration, add-on features, platforms and screen size requirements, and more.

The application development agency will then run technical feasibility and feasibility investigation. Based on the results, it will come with an approximated time to work on the MVP.

App Development Process

It is unavoidable to follow a proper app development process to ensure successful deployment of your mobile app in the App Store, not following the various levels of the app development process will affect your project timeline. Once the scoping and planning is done, it's time to design and develop the app. The development phase includes three key elements - UI / UX design, front-end and back-end. The design and development time for a small app is about 6-7 weeks.

Beautiful UI Design

User interface design entices users to your mobile app and provides an opportunity to present your fascinating content. Your user interface design should be simple to navigate but include some unique features that will set you apart from the competition. It is important that you stay consistent with the design throughout the app. Keeping elements like font family, font size, and color scheme uniform across the applications will improve the visual appearance and assist with the comprehension of content.

Follows Platform Design Guidelines

Your mobile app should be platform-appropriate. Google Play and Apple App Store both layout explicit design guidelines for app designers and developers to follow. Catering to the design of your mobile app for a specific device type will ensure that the user experience is intuitive. Once you determine which type of device is most popular among your target audience, you can focus on designing first for that particular platform.

Use of Familiar Screens

Likewise, while your app should have unique aspects, it should not be so unique that no one can operate it. Using familiar screens and gestures, such as "What's New" or "Profile", will improve the usability of your app. You can avoid the usual learning curve associated with a new app, in which screen users are already comfortable.

Friction Less Navigation Feature

Your mobile application should include simple and intuitive navigation and/or search feature - especially if you have a high amount of content. Users typically do not spend extra time searching for content that is not easily accessible to them.

Capabilities of Social Media Networking

Social media sharing is not just for fast cat videos and children's photos. Social media applications have already made their mark when it comes to communicating and collaborating with other people you know online, especially between workers who are geographically separated and between workers and their customers. Make it easy and intuitive by incorporating social sharing (as well as email sharing) directly from your mobile application.

Less keyboarding and more mobile screen touching

When users are in a keyboard-mouse setup accessing your website's services, you can ask them a lot of information and they can type away. This is not the case with mobile application design. Design the applications for the least use of the keyboard and have as many touch-based user experiences as possible.
