6 Ways To Ensure Your New Mobile App Is A Success

6 Ways To Ensure Your New Mobile App Is A Success

If you've had a great idea for an app and have decided to move forward with bringing it into reality, it's important to remember that it will require a lot of hard work and dedication. This comes from the often-unexpected complexity of software development, especially for those that are new to this industry. However, if you have the knowledge and determination to see a project like this through to the end, it can be a very rewarding experience. You'll want to make sure you follow some key steps, however, to ensure that your final product is a success.

Create A Strong And Detailed Concept

Your first step before you start developing your app is to ensure that you have produced a detailed and convincing concept as well as your business plan. This concept should give a complete overview of what your app will do, as well as a general idea of how it will look. Alongside your business plan, which should include everything from market research plans to predicted sales, this should give you a great idea as to the timeline of your development, keeping you on track and focused on your overall goals. 

Develop A Sleek Interface

One thing that some developers may overlook when creating a new app is the overall appearance of the app as well as the user experience (UX). It's imperative that your app looks visually appealing and also is easy to use and navigate. If users struggle to find settings or features when using your app, this can be frustrating and lead to them searching for a new app to download or even leaving a negative review. This can dissuade new customers from choosing to download the app and can significantly impact your project's success.

Create Prototypes

Throughout the development process, you'll want to create multiple prototypes, some isolating and focusing on specific features and some resembling the complete intended product. These are respectively known as low-fidelity and high-fidelity prototypes. A low-fidelity prototype is a quick and easy way to test new features in the app without needing to wait for the creation of a feature-complete app just to test one tiny change or identify bugs. Whereas a high-fidelity prototype may take longer to create but it will allow for better overall testing and will usually be the prototypes you give to testers, both internal and external.

Run Regular Security Tests

As well as creating these prototypes, you'll want to make sure you're conducting regular security tests on your app to ensure there are no critical holes in your security. There are many different methods of testing your app security, and one of these is called fuzz testing. This is where security software, like ForAllSecure's Mayhem software, will bombard your app with random and unexpected inputs to confuse and even crash the app. This will help you to identify any potential flaws and vulnerabilities in your software and allow you to patch them up in preparation for launch. 

Market Your Product

No matter what, it's always smart to conduct some form of marketing leading up to and following the release of your app. Even if it was one of the best ideas of the past decade, failing to advertise your app can lead to it falling into obscurity very quickly. As with most other industries today, you must remember that the app development industry is extremely competitive, and so many people are trying their hand at creating the next big app. You'd be surprised at just how much money you can make from an app, even if you're selling it for just a few dollars. You could be looking at millions overnight, allowing you to take your business to the next level. However, if you don't manage to market your product well, many of your potential customers may never even learn of its existence. 

Continue To Update Your App After Release

Once you've launched your app, the work doesn't just stop. There will likely be countless bugs that will appear once the software has gone live and the public begins essentially testing your app for you. This means that you and any others that may be a part of your team will need to spend a lot of time communicating with your customers and fixing any bugs that they report. You should ideally sort any critical bugs as soon as possible and avoid releasing bug fixes in a large update months after release. Instead, you should do regular updates making small fixes where required. This will not only improve the experience for your customers, but it will also showcase your dedication to the longevity of your app, proving that you care about your product and don't wish to see it fall into obscurity after making a profit.
