Although it is rightly said that “Man is a statue of mistakes” and the world agrees to this fact as well, but in a work atmosphere where millions of replacements are available for someone who commits a mistake, it becomes crucial not to commit even the smallest error in order to safeguard your job.
This article therefore focuses on some mistakes which are common while developing an app, but can put a brand or the job of a developer at stake as well.
Let us put some light on such pernicious mistakes:
1. Insufficient Research About Target Audience
An application is a product which will be used vigorously by the customers and in case of any shortcomings according to the expectations of the audience, the application will be replaced by some other available apps in just a matter of a click on mobile screens. This is the click that a brand/developer never wants.
However, it can only be avoided by in-depth research of the actual motive of product and pre-manufacturing surveys of audience expectations and demands in order to rectify all the mistakes before actually launching the application.
Also, the research for target audience ought to include the kind of devices on which the application concentrates such as Android or iPhone Operating Systems. People use a variety of devices and operating systems these days and expect an app to work equally well on all the platforms. Ignorance on any aspect of target audience may prove to be fatal for the brand developing an application.
2. Inadequate Testing of Application
Another big mistake made during the Mobile App Development Process is lack of sufficient testing or perhaps testing it in your friendly circle only. Remember, the application is going to be downloaded and used by people belonging to varied age groups and locations.
Therefore, it becomes necessary to test the application by presenting it to individuals of different age groups using different types of internet connections. Apart from it, the application must be tested on a variety of devices and software versions in order to check the performance and efficiency of the app.
3. Excessive Features And Lack of Post-Launch Plans
Nowadays, people are very specific about their needs and the moment an app starts adding something more than expected, the downfall of the app begins. Therefore, in order to avoid getting your customers irritated, it is extremely crucial to make sure the application is not overloaded with unnecessary features which will bring a lot of problems along with it – the app will become heavier in size, it will be difficult to use, UI will become sophisticated and UX won’t be positive at all. Therefore, all the focus must be on the fundamental objectives of
the app and not the extra unnecessary features at all.
Once the app is launched, there are bundles of responsibilities to take care of such as marketing strategies, regular updates, teamwork, etc. In case of negligence on any of such crucial steps, the application won’t be able to survive in this era of cut-throat competition and hence would end up being deleted from all devices.
To conclude, an app without an errorless leader is just like a fish without water; the future is going to be fatal anyways no matter how much it struggles to survive.
