Cloud technology

Of course, that is no hidden agenda behind the cloud technology. Everybody is familiar here with the super advantages of cloud technology and how it can change our daily life. Today is cloud technology not only insanely fast, simple to deploy, and cost affordable but also provides a fantastic working argument for both startups and large-scale enterprises.

Onedrive, Dropbox, and Google Drive are some of the exceptional cloud technologies that have been making customers life super easy and in a coming couple of years we can expect new dynamic applications that directly can be run on the cloud and occupy minimum space in the smartphone storage.

Enterprise mobile applications

It’s obvious that more and more mobile application developers are stepping towards building efficient and result-driven enterprise mobile applications. And the reason behind that is the application keeps giant teams connected always and also allow them to track essential metrics and KPIs which are now needed by almost every business. More than 40% of the enterprise application developers earn $10000 per month when compared to the 20% of developers who build customer-centric applications. In addition to that, enterprise applications are expected to be the next big thing in the IT industry since there would be more B2B interaction, an excellent chance will be offered to the application developers.

IoT will open new doors

Internet of Things is already making sensations not only in the IT industry but also automobile, real estate, Healthcare, and various other sectors. Currently, the IoT industry is almost $20 trillion so we can expect that in the next 5 years more than 5 million people will be using IoT based Technologies in their daily life.

Currently, IoT is mainly used in modern wearable technologies, smart thermostats, etc. but in the next couple of years we can expect this technology to be rapidly adopted by every industry and sector.

Location-based Wi-Fi services will become more common

Whatever the slightest differences between the online and offline advertising before, now these limitations have been blurred by the mobile location services and Beacon technology. And this case is true, especially in the retail industry. The Apple company had already integrated this new technology within iBeacon and soon Android followed its footsteps.

Very soon in the future, Wi-Fi will be utilized by people across the globe for more than just browsing the internet since more and more public hotspotß can be expected to turn on as location access point and for these reasons, app developers have to take leverage of such incredible location based wi-fi services.

M-commerce will be the next excellent opportunity

Already the E-commerce market is full of companies like Amazon and eBay and we can expect nothing less from M-commerce as in the coming years M-commerce applications will be the center of the attraction. With mobile phones that are featuring latest technologies such as fingerprint recognition, utilizing the smartphones to complete financial transactions are greatly accepted by the customers. In regards to this, the application developers will also have chances to develop M-commerce applications that can offer extra functionalities to the customers.

In-app advertising will grow

With the significant number of smartphone users across the globe utilizing their smartphones to perform every single task, there will be a study group in app advertising and purchasing. According to the source, the in app-purchasing from smartphones is approximately $9 million in the year 2017.

APIs will take charge

As we are moving toward the future mobile application development will increase the necessity of utilizing smartphones across devices and the glow, an API-first method make sure that both the agility and the flexibility with which the application runs errorless.

App security becomes a necessity

With significant improvements that are taking place in the technological world, the application security along with the smartphone security will be one of the important concerns. Already there is a numerous number of applications that have been tracked in both App Store and Play Store, the need for app security is greatly increasing.

Thus, Google and Apple are collectively increasing the state and making sure that the app stays safe and app developers also have to understand the importance of focusing more on cyber security and implement next-gen security features within the mobile applications.

With many apps that are being launched regularly, it becomes quite difficult for app developers to develop a high-end app that survives without going the extra mile. Building an application is not enough, it is important to work relentlessly to make it popular on the Google Play Store.

If you have recently developed an android mobile app and looking forward to increasing the visibility of your mobile app on the Play Store, give your attention on these simple yet effective tips that will help you to increase the visibility of your mobile app:

Testing Your App is the First Step

Do you believe in the first impression is your last impression? Users, who are experiencing a bug like crashing, UI not showing right or usability issues in an application, it will possible drop it right away. More than 96% of the struggling users will surely write a bad review and 44% will instantly remove the app, as per the recent mobile app survey.

It is highly important for you to test your application before you launch and with every new update. You can try services as TestObject so that you can conduct mobile app testing, comprising stress testing, install and launch on varied android versions and devices and custom UI testing from your browser in just minutes.

Essentials of Mobile App Designing Matter the Most

Do you know app designing is the main reason why WhatsApp has gained the huge popularity as IM app whereas there are lots of other applications as well that are trying to deliver the same services? If you also have a dream of ensuring that your app stands out from other apps, you should give attention to keeping the app design as user-friendly as possible.

Graphics Play Important Role

On the web, there are a lot of popular mobile apps that have attractive graphical properties beginning from the app icon to the GUI. Therefore, it is clear indication that graphics is highly important in making any Android application successful, but still, various developers are there, who are not paying much attention to the graphics of an application as it deserves. Make sure that you do not follow the same path if you are looking forward to making your app rank among top 10 apps on the Play Store.

Going with Native Over Hybrid

The constant fight between native and hybrid apps doesn’t seem to end in near time. Ever since the app development become highly popular and the developers have been trying different ways to garner maximum engagement.

If this is what you are looking for, you should prefer to develop a native application over a hybrid app. By doing this, you can get help in achieving desired results in a small time.

Title and Description

As you know that Google is forcing all to come up with unique titles that are mainly focused, unique, and avoid too many common words. It is important that the description must be thorough, but remember that almost text will be hidden under a Read More button. Ensure that you comprise what’s valuable and essential for users.

7 Out of 10 Mobile Apps Fail Due to Lack of Strategy

Saturday, 10 December, 2016

For business owners out there looking to cash in on the money-making machine that’s known as mobile applications, be aware that the majority of apps are getting downloaded fewer than 500 times a day, and only the top 5% of all apps in Google Play and Apple’s App Store are generating more than $1250/day in revenue.

These numbers are nothing new, stemming from a Gartner report published in 2014. However, instead of just predicting most apps will fail, I propose one of the key reasons for so many apps not managing to become successful.

When we talk about mobile applications, most people are thinking of games, Facebook- and Snapchat-like apps, when in reality enterprise applications are among the top in terms of project costs and amount of money invested.

These enterprise apps are also among the most successful, because they’re specifically designed to eliminate certain issues, always solving a specific problem such as managing remote workers, keeping track of inventory throughout retail stores worldwide, and other complex solutions.

Compared to the vast majority of publicly available apps, this is one of the key differences. Looking at Google Play or Apple’s App Store, there’s a large number of so-called “life-enhancing” apps, tracking your fitness level, making sure you can find that song you heard on the radio, or something else along those lines.

While some of these apps are doing quite well, both in terms of active users, and revenue generation, most of them are not. And while more than 1 billion downloads happen on both App Store and Google Play respectively, the majority of those downloads come from the same top 50 or top 100 apps, leaving the rest of the 2 million apps in either store left fighting over the scraps.

I’ve looked at 100 random apps on Google Play over the past week, and come to the conclusion that the single most common reason that an app fails comes down to bad strategy.

This term covers a few different aspects, so let’s go over each reason in detail:

  • Target audience too small
  • No App Store Optimization
  • Bad Marketing Strategy

These 3 reasons can be applied to more than 90 of the 100 apps I looked at, while the remaining apps had very specific reasons for not performing well, and so those last apps are not of general interest to us.

Target audience too small

Let’s consider the fact that some of the apps I looked at had been featured on TechCrunch, Mashable and other large worldwide websites with millions of monthly visitors.

Some of these apps even had great ideas and concepts that were unique and solving real problems, but the issue with those was the fact that not enough people had those problems.

Let’s face it, you’re never going to reach 100% of your target demographic. In fact, if you ever reach 30% or more, I’ll consider you a stunning success.

The reality is, that on average, you’re more likely to reach 1-5% of your target user group with a successful campaign and strategy running.

Then you have to consider that out of all your visitors and users, there’s a conversion rate, meaning that not all of your visitors will buy your subscription, or pay for your app. That number is also around 1-5% depending on the market.

So if your target demographic is American Fishermen on the East Coast, there are only X number of those users. Let’s say 100,000. Out of those 100,000 you are reaching 20% because you’re awesome at marketing, and your app is great so people talk about it.

That means you have 20,000 people reading about your app, visiting your website or your app store entry. Great right? It would be, if all those converted into app downloads or subscriptions.

The problem is, that out of those 20,000 people, you only convert 5% (let’s be optimistic.)

That means you only get 1,000 downloads in total, and that’s with a successful app and marketing strategy in place. Of those 1,000 downloads, you then have the problem of retaining users, meaning that 9 out of 10 apps downloaded are only opened once, then forgotten or uninstalled.

So in the end, you are left with a very small amount of users, even though you managed to run a great campaign, create a great product, and convince a large amount of people of your app idea.

No App Store Optimization

This is one of the single largest factors in why apps are not successful. Most apps I looked at had fairly unique ideas, or at least performed a valuable service or function which should prove useful to a lot more people than currently downloaded the apps, meaning that not enough people knew about them.

While ASO is mainly associated with keywords and app names on the stores, ASO goes beyond that, and is an ongoing process, much similar to SEO for website owners. And also like SEO, ASO is not directly comparable to App Marketing, although they do certainly overlap in some areas.

This means that it’s necessary to devote a continuous amount of effort and resources to put into this aspect, but it is not the same as old fashioned marketing either.

Establishing an online and offline presence that allows the maximum amount of eyes to see your mobile app is vital to ensuring a successful app launch, and is the single most important thing in my opinion.

If you’re not sure about app store optimization, I advise you to read up on the topic, as there’s a huge potential here for anyone not having done so already.

Bad Marketing Strategy

Another of the most common problems I saw was how badly managed or lacking the marketing efforts were.

Either the creators relied on their app idea and concept going viral, which at best provides a spike in traffic which then again dies out, or the app did not go viral, and the traffic never even got started in the first place.

Someone has said you should spend 20% of your budget on app development, and 80% on app marketing. I agree with this sentiment quite a bit.

Of course, there are exceptions to this rule of thumb, but the point you should understand, and accept, is that the app itself could be the greatest thing out there, but if nobody is talking about it, and nobody is linking to it, then nobody will ever find it or download it.

So consider how to market your app, even before you start development. In fact, if you can not create a good marketing strategy that you yourself believe wholeheartedly in, perhaps you should not develop that app after all.

Like ASO, mobile app marketing strategies are a topic in itself, and to become an expert requires significant time and efforts, and I encourage you to read more about this subject in detail if you’re in the app business.

Conclusion

It’s important to consider as many aspects as possible before beginning an app development project, and sometimes that means discarding an otherwise good idea, because it fails on a single aspect.

Hopefully that can be fixed, but if not, you should seriously consider changing your overall app concept to better align itself with the 3 key points above, which in my opinion are crucial for any app store success.

Top Factors that Has a Great Impact on Mobile App Development Cost

Sunday, 14 February, 2016

There are two types of aspiring businessmen – one who executes their business ideas after estimating the development cost of their product, and another is one who put their product first, without even considering the development cost.

And, mobile app development is one of the expensive processes that require a lot of time and money. If you want to build a highly intuitive and feature rich mobile app, then you need to add hefty cost to your project.

There is no doubt that mobile applications are the powerful and advanced marketing technique that drives traffic, boosts the popularity of your products that in turn increases the sales and growth of your business.

However, development of a mobile app is not cost-efficient, and this is the main reason why most of the companies skip the idea of getting into the mobile application market.

In fact, there are various factors that are affecting the development cost of mobile applications; therefore, many business organizations face challenges while building their mobile app.

In this blog post, we will have a look at some of the key factors affecting the mobile app development cost. And, also give you some resourceful tips that will help you make the most affordable decisions, and offer you the best ROI of your development budget.

Factors Affecting the Mobile App Development Cost

Operating Systems (OS)

Developing a mobile application for internal user is comparatively less expensive than doing it in a bring-your-own device (BYOD) or external environment because here you can solely decide on how many mobile devices or platforms you will support.

But for BYOD or external users, you need to create an application that will work across every mobile platform and device. First, you need to decide on which operating system(s) you will support and latter you will determine on how to support cross-platform applications.

This wastes both your development time and money.

Mobile Devices & Platforms

Many web app developers find difficulties in deciding whether to support Android, Windows or iOS platforms or all of above. But by deciding this, you will easily estimate both the development time and cost.

As we know, all platforms available on the web market are different from each other. Native apps are developed in the operating system’s specific language such as Objective C or Java, while web applications are developed as web pages and thus not reliable on a specific operating system Language.

However, developing the HTML5 web applications are much cheaper than developing the OS-specific apps. But still, 25 % of app developers are using at least three different mobile devices or platforms to go online.

So, it is better to decide at the beginning of the development process if you want to save your development cost and time.

Functionality of Your Application

At the time of development process, you need to finalize the functionalities that you want to embed in your app. Well, the involvement of functionalities completely depends upon the category of the app and for whom the app is developing – potential customers.

For example, if you want to include two-dimensional games then it would cost you less, but if you want 3D animated games, with robust sound effects to attract more customers, then you need to incorporate extra functionality in your basic ones and thus you need to spend more money on it.

Backend Verses Native

You may need to pay more if your mobile application requires a backend. It is because another resource has been embedded into the project as it requires web based programming skills. Plus, the developers need to put extra efforts to build a backend that are reliable on the complexity of features.

Usually, a backend is used to store all the user-based information. Another example of a complex backend is when you require social sharing network fundamentals like sharing data, connecting two different users and more. In such a situation, you need to pay cloud hosting cost, along with development cost.

Content Management System

Another addition to the cost will be a Content Management System (CMS). If you want to update the content of your mobile app on frequent basis, then you need to integrate a Content Management system.

The CMS allows multiple stakeholders to add their content from the backend (managed and controlled by your or the admin). You can easily add/edit product information, categories, pricing on an online app, etc.

Social Media Integration

In the present day, it becomes essential to integrate a social media into your website and mobile app if you want to engage more and more web customers.

In order to integrate social media features into your mobile app, you need to spend more money during the development process. However, it is better for you to determine what type of social features you want to add into your mobile application.

You can opt for a feature that allows your visitors to share your content on their social media profiles or want a feature where your customers can share data with each other. Well, there are two ways that will enable your visitors to share your data – Twitter-type follow or un-follow or Face-type friend request management.

Distribution of Mobile Apps

There are various distribution channels for your mobile app deployment, and each channel has its own sets of costs. For an example, Google Play – a commercial distribution channel charges higher developer license cost. Therefore, it is important to choose the cost-effective as well as reliable distribution channel.

However, you can find other options on the web market such as corporate app store, which is administered via an enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform. Under this, all the mobile apps are deployed to the corporate storefront for authorized devices and users.

Use of 3D Animation/ Visual Objects

Today, most of the app developers want to integrate complicated UI components into their mobile app with an objective to give a high-end user experience to their potential customers.

Therefore, many of them are integrating real-time 3D animations/graphics, visual transitions to make their app more real and user-engaging. If you want to do the same, then you need to contribute more into your development cost.

Third Party Integrations

A mobile application either can be self-contained or connected with an enterprise system. If your mobile app doesn’t want enterprise data, corporate access, or enterprise system, or central business logic, then the cost of development will be reduced and restricted to app development procedure only,

But, if you want a mobile app with third party integration, the development cost will exceed to enterprise web services and data access, third party APIs and other integration tools.

Thus, it is important to consult enterprise architects before taking any decision. They will calculate your basic requirement and let you know about best deals.

Maintenance – After the Deployment of A Mobile App

Maintenance of a mobile application is crucial that needs to be done very cautiously. If you are thinking that your mobile app development cost will cease after its deployment, then you are completely wrong.

Generally, user feedback is immediate and that includes problems, issues, suggestions and modification requests and much more. Therefore, it is better for you to hold up your entire development team for some more time after the deployment, so that you can instantly solve the issues and make quick enhancements.

Conclusion

With the help of this blog post, you can easily determine the multiple factors affecting the development cost of a mobile application. Now, you can strategize your plan and estimate the budget before getting into the mobile app development procedure.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When User Testing Your Mobile App

Tuesday, 22 December, 2015

People are becoming increasingly accustomed to using mobile for browsing the Internet. Right from shopping online, to reading news and accessing information from the web, all these tasks are performed using a Smartphone and/or tablets. This does not mean that desktop and other computer systems are not being used, or aren’t good enough, for carrying out online activities.

Sure, even desktop computers are being used for web browsing, however, mobile device usage seem to have exceeded desktop usage. With ever-increasing use of mobile devices, it is important that your website can address the mobile users’ needs. But, considering the fact that 54 percent of the digital media time people spent is on mobile apps, leveraging mobile application development can help expand your reach and maximize your profits.

It’s good, if you already have a mobile app. If not, then you should develop one without wasting any more time. But, what if you are unable to achieve expected results after launching an app? This means that there is some issue with your application – that might be stopping you from achieving your goal. But, user testing your mobile app can help you overcome any issues with the application.

In this post, I’ll help you explore what does user testing a mobile app means. Most importantly, I will share some mistakes that users commonly make when user testing an application.

User Testing a Mobile App: What is it and Why you need it?

5 Mistakes to Avoid When User Testing Your Mobile AppThe best way to test a mobile app is to know how consumers might react after using your app. Especially when you’re creating a mobile application for users benefit, knowing about how users are interacting with the app will help you improve and deliver an enhanced user experience. This is exactly what you achieve by ‘user testing’ an application.

Making use of mobile user testing will help you listen to your user’s mind – how they use their app and what changes they want in it. This saves your time into thinking of strategies (and methods) to improve mobile UX and increase its usability.

Essentially, conducting user tests on your app will make you understand what normal people (i.e. one who will be posting reviews about your app in the app store) expect from your application.

Mistakes You Should Avoid While User Testing Your App

1. Not providing a walk-through to explain user testing process.

There are several user testing tools available online. But remember that not all of those tools are same, and function in a different manner. And so, there’s a greater possibility that your users might not know how to get started with the process of user testing your mobile app via the tool you are using.

But, providing a walk-through to explain how your app users can make use of the ‘user testing tool’ can help them understand the process of testing the application.

2. Not giving users enough flexibility to test the app.

You must provide your app users enough flexibility to test the application. Doing so, will give app users a sense of ownership and they will share their views and opinions about improving the application in a better way.

3. Not choosing the right user testing tool.

Keep in mind that how efficiently your app will tested will depend on how good your user testing tool is. So, be wary about choosing the right user testing tool. Below are a few things you must take into account before selecting a user testing tool:

  • Choose one that helps get fastest user feedback.
  • Comes with wireframes and prototypes to enable real users understand what works and what not.
  • Allows to test on many different devices and mobile platforms.

4. Thinking of Is “user Testing” and “usability testing” to be same.

Often novice users believe “user testing” to be usability testing. There’s no denying that user testing a mobile app help determines app usability, but there’s a lot more to user testing than merely providing data that helps boost the usefulness of a mobile app.

User testing also helps you test the app for emotional engagement. And enables you to know others feel about your app, and are they able to achieve what they’ve expected from the app and so on. Simply put, user testing the app will let you know factors that can help keep your users engaged with your mobile application.

5. Testing the app after getting it published on app store.

It is highly recommended that you must user test the app before it gets published in the app store. That’s because, getting user reviews for your app will help refine its functioning before making it available for public use.

And, providing your target users with an end-product that meet their expectations and requirements, will help create a good first impression and thereby attract more users to your app model.

Conclusion

This post will help you understand what does user testing a mobile application means. In addition, you’ll get to know about some common mistakes we tend to make while performing user tests on an app.
