It’s not a secret that every company or individual who’s planning to create a mobile app for their business, wants this app to be successful. But did you know that one in four mobile mobile business apps once downloaded is never used again? It means that about 25% of mobile business apps are downloaded, tried once and then discarded. However, this rate doesn’t mean that yours is going to be one of those, right? Let’s consider it as an advice to better plan your business app development.
Here in this article we tried to enumerate some tips that for sure will help your app to succeed and some mistakes that can prevent your app from being successful.
Platform. Apps are different from websites. This means that one and the same version cannot run on all devices. So you will have to choose the operating your app is going to support. And this is the first challenge. What is the best platform choice for you business app? iOS whose app developers are making the most money on their mobile business apps? Or Android that appeals to the masses with affordable phones and tablets meaning that it has a much larger user base and more potential users of your app?
I believe that the app should run on both iOS and Android, especially taking into account the fact that today it is easier than ever. There are really many tools that allow business people to create mobile mobile business apps once and deploy everywhere without writing a line of code. Snappii is one of these tools. Utilizing it you can create mobile business apps that will run on iPhones and Android smartphones, iPads and Android tablets. There’s no need to make choices between platforms.
Just remember that compatibility is one of the major keys of an app success!
Target Audience. Any app is built for a specific audience of users. The better it is specified, the fewer are the chances to make an incomplete product. If you as a business owner see the needs, the goals of the app, the problems it will solve, the most needed features will be defined and implemented. There is a market niche to be occupied. And if it gets narrowed, it will get stronger.
The Snappii Platform allows you to create mobile business apps oriented at different industries and thus different audiences.
