Whether you are an Android app development company or an app developer, you would know that there are certain things that are sure to give you an edge over other competitors. A few handy considerations can take your application way up and that is what top mobile app developers wish to achieve.

App development has received amazing coverage internationally and there are many good Android app developers in the market. What distinguishes you from the rest? There are a few secrets behind how a good app developer becomes a great developer. Let’s explore reveal these interesting secrets and be sure to stick till the end for a surprise.

The Secret

  • Get it Out of Your Head and Put It on Paper: All great products are a result of a small idea that crosses a genius mind. This same rule applies to the top mobile app developers. You might be a developer working on a client project or an entrepreneur developing your own app, ideas and creative outlook is important. When you visualize your app, make sure you put your ideas on paper and then try to think about the pros and cons of implementing those ideas, feasibility, and practicality. Make sure you discuss the innovative ideas with your client so that your creativity and out of the box thinking is something that the client agrees with. You can also maintain a record documenting all your creative ideas that would eventually fit somewhere else.

  • Think Like a Consumer: The most effective Android app development company would try to create applications that would take care of issues that they would not like to encounter themselves as customers. This focus on client empathy will go a long way to transform you from good to great. So, if you are developing a gaming application, think of the issues that a common user might encounter (say, battery consumption or loading time). These considerations will take you a long way and will also avoid extra effort to fix minor issues when the application is released for consumers. Another benefit of using this thought process is to have developed an app that the users will enjoy because throughout the development phases, user experience was at the center.

  • Design for a Bigger Market: If you are an app developer, responsive design does not need an introduction. When you start developing an app, keep the responsive factor in mind because this is what will take your application to a market beyond the usual. As a developer, you focus on client requirements but remember you are a professional who would know aesthetics better. Therefore, if possible, even if client requirement is to just create a desktop application, consider pitching in the responsive idea and explain the benefit. You never know what might work in your favor and you might get a chance to show off your skills.


  • Test and Rest: The importance of testing cannot be emphasized enough. A good and thorough testing of applications make a huge difference. Sometimes, you create a great application and just can’t wait to get it to the market. So, you skip the testing step. As a result, users who download the app on different devices, encounter different issues and your application receives a bad rating and not so good reviews. This can be the repercussion of skipping the testing part. Make sure your initial plan includes sufficient time for testing and fixes and if there is any deviation in the plan, speed up the interim process to keep at least the required time for testing.

So, now the surprise that I mentioned in the beginning. This is a simple mathematical weightage equation that will work well for you if you are a planner. A great app relies on a solid concept executed well with a plan and tested to perfection. So, give 20 percent of the time to the idea and concept, 20 percent to the planning, 30 percent to execution, and the remaining 30 percent to testing.

Parting Thoughts

As a professional app developer, you probably know all that has been discussed above. But, when it comes to working in a deadline-driven environment, the skills and obvious professional traits seem to take a back seat. A great Mobile app development company should be able to find a way to incorporate what the team members are good at in all that they do. This does not mean going out of the way to incorporate what you like but to enjoy in what you create. There might be a situation where you have to let go of your creative side but then there would be many other situations where you can make use of your talent and knowledge. This is a simple difference between a good app developer and a great app developer.
