As the roadblocks to app development begin to come down, myriad web designers are seen shifting their base to app development to add extra income to their revenue and to render clients with more options to reach their target audience.
People are habituated to websites which offer them extra options and features, but when it comes to apps, users expect that apps should aim at a single feature which should be completed in just few tabs as quickly as possible.
It is alright to add extra features in the app for users to explore, but during app development it should be taken into account that the app must complete its primary task responsively, and without any fuss.
For example, in a Weather app, people could look for local traffic data to prepare accordingly for their outdoor trips, but if the app does not provide a weather report, people will not bother to use that extra functionality.
Nowadays app development in India has taken a boost. More and more app developers and even IT companies are venturing into app development business in India. App developers must think about these points before developing an app:-
• Determine a single goal for the app (e.g. Offer real-time data with respect to an event)
• Decide practicable secondary features for the app (e.g. Relate with the primary feature)
• The primary aim of the app should be shown right away (e.g. on the home screen of the mobile)
• If users explore the secondary features of the app, they must be able to return to the primary feature promptly and without difficulty.
App developers in India or elsewhere must follow a clear path from start to finish during app development. They must consider app navigation similar to reading a book, where you normally begin from the first page and then proceed through chapters page by page, but if you wish to go back to a chapter, you are able to do that within few flips of your thumb, or finger. Similarly, using of apps must be simple and hassle free!
Mobile devices are a store house of new technology incorporated into them, permitting its users to communicate with the digital environment far beyond what desktop offers. Thus app development for mobiles must provide a far more engrossing experience to its users, and it could be as elementary as presenting content based on specific location, using GPS or QR Codes.
App developers in India must also think of providing:
• Content to users when they move outside with the help of GPS
• All the information about the product whose QR code user scans
• Details of their present location and its nearby places, if they wish to look around.
During app development it must be considered that people would be using the apps with their fingers (or thumbs), so make sure that the interface developed isn’t too small to tap through unlike web apps where it is click and point. Therefore, for an application to have a uniform look and feel across variety of devices, user interface components and graphics must be scalable.
Lastly, app development in India is in its peak time so app developers must take advantage of motions, like swiping back and forward, squeezing to zoom and pulling-down to refresh, to increase the serviceability to their applications.
