In today's competitive business environment, it has become extremely important to provide the best possible user experience for clients. Well-designed apps are one good way to do this. Most consumers love using apps but there is a fly in the ointment.
According to the app review site App Geeks, 24% of users use the apps just once. Which means that unless you want to lose about a quarter of your market, you have to make sure that the app works flawlessly the first time around.
You can check out their infographic for some more interesting statistics, but for now, let's look at what makes a great app.
You want your app to load in two seconds or less. Anything more than that, and your app is considered a bad one. Keep load times down by ensuring that the app is as simple as possible.
Simple to Use
When users download an app, what they want is something that will work cleanly and easily. Apps should be intuitive and not involve a long learning curve. They want the buttons and icons to be easily visible.
Does that mean that design considerations can fall by the wayside? No, not at all. Users are demanding. They want the app to work flawlessly, and also to be appealing to them. The design must be centered on their needs and what they find useful, or they'll give it a miss the next time around.
Now that we know what makes a great app, let's look at the things that will ensure that your app is uninstalled fast.
Too Heavy on Resources
If your app is draining the battery of your users' phones, they won't thank you. Keep it light on resources so that battery usage is kept to a minimum.
We get a ton of notifications already. Do we need more from our apps? Most certainly not.
Waiting and Interruptions
There is nothing quite as irritating as waiting for an article to load in an app. Unless, of course, you get interrupted by some sort of sales message.
To stay on the safe side, start developing your app with your end-user in mind. What does she want to see? How can you create the very best possible experience for her?
