Continuing the series of posts; I am back again to discuss the remaining sad story of my failed mobile application. In the last post of mine I told you about the three mistakes of my mobile application development process including:
First Mistake: Coding Immediately
Second Mistake: Promoting the Application after the Launch
Third Mistake: Caring Only For the Big Bumps
So only these three mistakes were responsible to make my application story a rough phase? No; they are actually followed by a few more and I will surely like to alter those painful points today.
Fourth Mistake: Project Plans Are! WHAT?
Let’s accept the fact that when we think about planning; we actually think about gossiping, sharing coffee and an entertaining time pass. During the development phase of my application; I cared about everything except planning and the result was no need to say; Horrible.
So if you don’t want to track my path; always make a app plan. You must discuss and plan about the aspects like advertisement of the app, how the app will be marketed, from where the generated revenue will be maximum and many more.
Fifth Mistake: No Communication with the Users
“Just make the users download the app once and then leave them at their own” sounds so rude right? But most of the mobile application developers commit this offence. We just care about the total no. of downloads but never about the feedback of the user.
If you want to make your application liked by millions of users then you will have to correct it hundreds of times according to the feedback of those users.
Sixth Mistake: No Downloads: No Updates
Of course it is the human nature that we can’t give our 100% input if we are not getting any output. I too followed this theory and rest is in peace. As an application developer you can’t expect the application to be downloaded by millions of users in its initial months.
So that doesn’t mean that if you the digits of your app download is not high than you will declare it as dead. Even if you are not getting any response; you must change your promotional strategy and in many case an update works as a catalyst.
I hope that you would have learned some important aspects of mobile application development from my experience. You must take care of all these points if you want a successful application in your portfolio. For more important resources and knowledge capsule about the concept; Keep tracking Appschopper.
