The Dos and Don’ts of Mobile App Designing
When it comes to digital marketing, a mobile app works like a catalyst to the entire marketing and sales strategy but it can just as rapidly backfire and end up being a lost investment if not executed properly. With around 4.58 billion people around the globe, who use their mobile devices on a daily basis, an app is bound to generate your business some revenue, right? No! It’s not as simple as that. More mobile devices mean vast market demands and that means double the amount of suppliers for those demands. Which means direct or indirect competition for you. Now, it is harder than ever to succeed in the mobile app industry. Experts claim that there’s more chance of failure with an app than success but that doesn’t mean to discourage the idea of investing in mobile app because judging from the revenue records of the top ten apps on the chart alone which are recorded to generate an average revenue of 82,000 USD, daily, we can’t deny the pros of mobile apps. There are just a few pointers you have to look out for to avoid any lost investments, that’s why we’re here with these guidelines to help you figure out the dos and don’ts of mobile app design and development.
Do invest in an intuitive interface
It is better to take a late start than a wrong start. Invest a generous amount of time and money in a friendly and industry-competitive interface of your mobile app. Outline the proper strategy and objectives of your app including each and every detail like what is to be the purpose of the app, who’s the target audience, where the ideal market is, what will be the marketing strategy, what are the industry trends and features, where should you market your app and so on.
An aesthetic layout with a modern interface is the backbone of any successful app.
Don’t compromise on security and privacy
Whether it is a social app or an e-commerce app, security and privacy features will either make or break your app. Even though people like to stay connected through social apps but they still like to maintain security when it comes to their private information. Whereas, cybersecurity for e-commerce apps is rather a necessity than a value-added benefit. When you’re dealing with sensitive information of clients like their home address, credit info and so on, a security breach is the last thing you’d like.
Do hire professionals for the job
It is very easy to get an app developed in this age with so many app developing agencies and freelancers online but it is better to invest a little generously when it comes to the designing of your app as an amateur often ends up making the common mistakes like too complex design or too simple and dull design. Only a professional can handle the ideal balance between both. That’s why it is unnegotiable to hire professionals, it always turns out better and more fulfilling.
Don’t self-sabotage by weak testing
Don’t let all your efforts and investments go to waste by slacking on testing sessions. Run your app through multiple and various sessions of testing for front and backend functionality before it goes live on the market. Because as they say, it is easier to make a good first impression than to change a bad impression. Never compromise on beta testing for quality assurance, so your app is always bug and error-free.
