There’s no denying that mobile revolution is here to stay. Rising popularity of smart phones created a growing need for applications, making mobile presence a must-have for all companies and changing the way we do business.
Since we are continually ‘on’ our mobile devices, we are getting used to the fact that it requires only few clicks to accomplish something. That’s why, mobile apps are most suited to ideas that are simple.
Simplicity is the key factor here. No one wants an app that is inconvenient and difficult to use. If it doesn’t provide the user with the right functionalities at the right time it will be deleted. Keeping this in mind, it’s no surprise that businesses try to understand the mobile context and adapt.
Careful consideration of your goals and what you can offer mobile customers, before you begin development of a mobile app. It is incredibly important, since getting your application right can mean the difference between success and failure.
However, there’s no need to panic. The process is becoming easier as developers have more and more tools at their disposal. They are now, more than ever, able to make their apps intuitive, easy-to-use a take a lead in this competitive marketplace.
We are already seeing innovative apps, enabling new forms of interactions even for children. One example is Kuddle – an app aimed towards adolescent teens under the age of 13, who want to enter the ever growing world of social media. The idea came from our Norwegian client and the app itself was developed by engineers from Future Processing.
The key lies in adopting a mobile-centered mindset. Companies must prepare a long term plan and follow it from the very beginning of the development process. Once the right strategy has been created and introduced in business, engineers can dedicate their work towards building simple, innovative apps that will underpin the mobile revolution.
