App development for Android has taken huge steps in the app programming field. Currently, there are numerous businesses that are in existence due to Android app development. In a world where everyone is creating an app for one reason or another, a well-designed app is not good enough anymore. Simply put, design is not everything.
With the mobile space becoming more crowded on a daily basis, slight design issues causing unreliable usability and unnatural navigation can be a big problem. The good news is you can transform a decent mobile app into a sustainable revenue generator by honing in on these seven ingredients:
Name Your Brand
To have a perfect android mobile app, you need to have a strong brand. Brand consistency drives everything, such as fonts and color scheme. The brand links the mobile app back to your business, making the procedure of monetizing the final product that much smoother.
Have a Great Idea
A great and unique idea is the basis of any great app. You should never go through the process of mobile app development unless you possess that great idea in which you have enough confidence to experiment with.
Possess a Strong Programming Core
Once your idea is finalized, you should have the best resources, such as expert programmers and software tools, to develop the app. Do not let your app suffer at the hands of inexperienced personnel.
Profile Your User
Do not underestimate the importance of narrowing down your target base for your mobile app. If your app tries to be everything to everyone, it will leave all your users feeling underserved. Create narratives of hypothetic users, including backgrounds and their reasons for adopting the app. This makes it easier in creating a “cannot live without it” product.
Be Conventional and User-Friendly
In business, challenging convention can make you stand out. In app development, it can leave your mobile app immobile. Following conventions does not make your app conventional. It helps you meet users’ expectations and keep them from giving up on your mobile app in frustration.
Polish Your App
The littlest design touches will make an app shine. Since Android phones have very little screen room, every detail should be weighed and well thought-out. In addition, you should have a plan for what happens if the “impossible” happens. Remember, it is not just about what your mobile app will look like 99 percent of the time; that 1 percent matters as well.
Take It For a Test Drive
Great mobile apps are created through usability testing. Even if you are in a hurry to get your app to Google Play, taking an extra week or two to get feedback from users about their likes and dislikes will save you money and time in the long run.
