Common Mistakes to Avoid During Android App Development

Published on 24 March 14
Before stepping into mobile app development, one needs to think of a significant approach for developing an app that helps your business make huge profits. Android is the fastest growing market these days. If you are thinking of developing an Android app for your business, you should study the market and the taste of the target audience. Without proper knowledge and research, people commit several mistakes that can lead to app failure in the Google Play Store.

Surveys have shown that the common mistakes while developing Android apps include technical aspects and others. Hence, while developing an Android app, you should make sure that you do not walk on the wrong path.

Keep target audience in mind:

Android is gaining popularity because of its multi-utility apps, wide support and low cost. There are many Android app development companies across the globe. Before building an Android app, it is important to keep in mind the target audience and define a class of public it would be built for. This would help you decide the right features for the app. Apps can be built for various purposes like games, business, entertainment, sports, education, etc. One should keep in mind the target audience and think of the best suitable designs and UI features. This would make your app more suitable for use at the app store.

Exploding Features without Use:

This is one of the major aspects one should bear in mind while making an application. If you add unnecessary features in the app, the app becomes complicated and the users are likely to uninstall the app and they might look for alternatives. Always think of the immediate needs of the users and plan what features your app should have initially. Later on, you can add more features in the upcoming versions of the Android app.

Creating complicated UIs:

It is important that your application has easy to operate and intuitive user interface. The users should be able to learn how to use it easily and quickly. Keep in mind that your average user is no geek; he or she may want to enjoy the features of your app on their mobile devices. Most of the users are not looking for extraordinary and elaborated UIs that are difficult to understand. Hence, keep the UIs as simple as possible.

Adding on too many platforms:

If you are a start up or a small business, you should resist the temptation to immediately start developing your app for multiple platforms. It can be costly to develop apps for several mobile platforms.

If you want to develop an app for all the major platforms like Android, Apple, Blackberry, you should think of unique app concept that appeals to the target audience.
