Factors that impact on Mobile App development
The first and foremost step in mobile app development is to identify the target audience. That’s where the mobile user behavior comes in. Apps are made in the first place to make things easier for the mobile user. For that purpose, it is essential to research the targeted audiences and the mobile user behavior. Only through that, we get an insight into what a user’s need is and how we can develop an app that suits the needs of the user. It also includes the type of apps that user’s are more likely to download the apps. It also shows user’s willingness to pay for the services and an insight into an in-app purchase.
Platform and User Experience
Android and iOS are the most popular platform for mobile apps. That is why most app developers choose these platforms as these account for 95% of the mobile market. Android is the most commonly used smartphone platform while iOS is only used on Apple phones. iOS users are willing to pay for the services of apps more than Android users. An app developer after studying the market trends and how the app is going to fit in has to decide which platform to choose: iOS or Android. The app developer has to narrow it down to iOS or Android after deciding why you want to use that particular platform. iOS is mainly chosen for revenue generation while Android is mainly for user acquisition.
The impact of user experience on the two platforms is different. Android focuses basically on customized experience. Google allows developers to upload the apps in a hassle-free process. While the App Store allows apps only after a strict approval process. iOS users advocate a consistent experience due to Apple’s strict regulations. Android users opt for freedom and customized apps.
iOS users are always willing to spend money on in-app purchases. Android holds the largest market share among mobile applications. The app developer should not avoid market research factors like the user’s location, income, and education.
