Tips To Note While Developing An iPhone App

There are apps and then there are some more apps out there on the iOS App Store. They are alive and kicking. Apple is very stringent about its selection of apps that finally make it to the store, yet those that make it are competing for survival.

Of course, ensuring your app can make it to the App Store is the first hurdle that you need to cross. Equally important is to stay with the user. More oft than not, apps get downloaded and installed, only to be uninstalled after a short use. Bad user experience? Not engaging enough? Not unique or see to be providing real value? It could be any of these or something else altogether that makes users disenchanted with the solution.

There is no guarantee for success, yet there can be a few points to keep in mind if you are an iPhone App Development Company in India. Some of these are listed below:

Planning is the key

Groundwork is the key to success. Make a plan, it’s the initial cycle that is the most difficult. Taking your idea to fruition should go through detailed steps like conceptualisation, creating user stories, user interface design, coding, prototyping, testing and creating a wireframe. Each aspect will help you tweak and become better if based on planned approach.

Event-driven design is the framework

The very nature of iOS app programming is the event-driven approach. Every event is a request-based approach to invoking respective functionality with a mapping response. This approach of action with appropriate reaction is what should be the framework of your iPhone application development.

UX has the final say

A pleasing user experience is what will make the final connect with your audience. The UI is an integral part of UX. A user-friendly app will find more takers. You must wear the user’s hat and look at your app from that perspective.  The functionality must be built around user interaction stories, not inside out.

Compatibility across iOS devices and platforms

The app must be compatible across various devices of the iOS family, with seamless experience across all. Then, you can also choose whether to go for native apps or cross-functional apps. Native apps allow you to use the best features to create better UI, but are more complex. Cross-platforms may be cheaper to build, but limit access to the features.

Testing is never ‘enough’

An iPhone developer can never declare testing to be really over. Lab testing, beta testing and even after going live, there should be rigorous tests done. Every possible scenario should be enlisted in unit testing, integration testing, system testing, go-live testing, with efficient debugging and resolving. You don’t want the consumer to be the first to encounter an error that could have been easily captured and rectified by your testing!

An app can never be ‘done’

It is important to keep churning out the app in better ways. Improving the functionality, optimising based on actual feedback from ground, and innovating have to be a part of the app lifecycle. Maintenance, upgrades, and support activities ensure that you can never hang up your iOS app development boots as long as your product is live out there.

Feedback is your best friend

Have a live customer support system as well a way to reach out there and take feedback from your users. Help your customers with even simple queries such as downloading the app. Everyone cannot be on top of technology, after all. A good customer support will get translated into good feedback, for you and your app!
