How to build a great mobile application

There is a high competition of mobile applications attention. Every idea owner wants to develop a mobile application that is catching the attention of the end users. This competition is stiff, as there are approximately 2.9 million applications in the Google Play store (For android users) and approximately 2.5 million in the App Store (For IPhone users) . The end user uses approximately 8 apps per day and 28 per month.

This means that there are many mobile applications that are not used by people. So this means that developing a mobile application is not the only big deal. The deal is to have a mobile application that is serving the end user.

One of the major challenges with a technology that is easily accessible is over supply of developed software. The end user will always have a limited attention to most developed software. End user will never download a mobile application just because it exists. They will only download mobile applications that are serving them. This means that the mobile application must solve the users problem or make their day-to-day activities easier

To have a successful mobile application, you have to stand out from the rest. Market research and choosing mobile application developers with great expertise will help you stand out.

Market research will save you time and resources because you’ll listen to the end user and get to know whether your idea will solve their problem or not. Once you get this information you’ll either develop a successful mobile application or not develop the app completely because you realized it is not what the end users want and your mobile app will not be amongst the dead apps on play store.
