But with a million apps to compete with it is imperative that you get the app building basics right. This quick guide walks you through the Do’s and Don’ts of building a great app. Do ’s 1. Go for an Intuitive UI - UI has a substantial impact on how the users engage with your app. Cluttered UI causes distraction taking attention away from the content and hindering the app’s readability. While designing UI try to make it easier for the users to navigate through find what they are looking for and make the purchase fast and easy. 2. Keep it Cost-Effective - The brutal truth is only a handful of apps make a killing on the app stores. We don’t mean to sound bleak but if the chances of success are thin it’s wise to start humble and scale as you begin to acquire and engage targeted users at an encouraging rate. An app builder is a smart way to mitigate the risks as it cuts the app development costs by half.

3. Use Mobile to its Advantage - While setting out to create an app for their business most people see it as a challenge while in actual it’s an opportunity. Instead of optimising your website elements to fit on a mobile screen you should rather focus on how to use mobile to its advantage – Think of mobile-only features such as GPS touchscreen and click to call. That’s what going native really means 4. Test Apps on Multiple Devices - Choose an app builder that lets you to test out your app on multiple devices before you actually launch it. Make sure the content layout and design are aligned properly on tablets phablets and smartphones. Do n ’t s 1. Build an App Just to Have One - So you want to create a mobile app for your business. But before you set out to building it have you asked the most essential question – Why do you want an app and how is it going to impact your target audience Remember setting your intent and planning ahead is crucial. 2. Try to Do Too Many Things at Once - Many businesses make the mistake of stuffing their apps with features and functionality. It’s not a bad thing as such except that it makes the app more vulnerable to bugs and crashes impacting user experience. Keep it light and instead of making it do everything make it do one thing great. 3. Ignore ASO - You’ve done a great job. There’s no reason why they wouldn’t come. This is a misconception. The few apps that have made it to the top know it and make serious ASO efforts to get there. Even if your app manages to achieve good rankings at the time of its launch it’s imperative to continue with the ASO best practices to fuel long-term success. 4. Ignore User Feedback - There have been many cases where an app manages to achieve high ranking on the app store at the time of its launch but falls flat after a few days. That’s because the success of an app depends on taking a note of what users have to say about it – the good the bad and the ugly. The key to building successful apps is to use criticism constructively for constantly improving your app experience. Your app builder should allow you to integrate your app with a feedback form. We hope this quick guide helps you create intuitive engaging app experiences and make the best of mobility
