Debunking The Most Common Myths About Mobile App Development

Android Application Development

Mobile applications have been around for years. We use them in our day to day life for different reasons – to book a movie ticket, read the news, order food, or share photos. With mobile apps becoming a staple in our lives, businesses are quickly moving towards it to reap the benefits. However, like any other spectrum of the IT industry, mobile application development industry is not exempted from prevailing myths. With many clients holding some preconceived notions, it becomes vital to present a true picture of the mobile apps development. Here we will be debunking come common myths to help you decide between iPhone application development and android application development.

1. Good Aesthetics Corresponds to High Success Rate

It is undeniably true that UI/UX plays a vital role in engaging the user, but it’s not the only factor that will determine the success of your mobile application. Amidst all the hype it is quite common to be easily drawn away from your end goal – to offer an enjoyable yet productive app experience. In other words, your goal should be to solve the problem of your audience and not to create a gorgeous but useless application.

2. App Success depends on more Features and Functionality

Features and functionality play an important role in the success of a mobile app. However, that doesn’t mean that you should stuff your application with a multitude of unnecessary features. Instead, you should try to understand the pain points of your customers and try to add only those features that are perfectly aligned with their requirements. Always remember that an app with a complex flow and multi-functionality won’t gain the traction and retain users. On the other hand. an application with a simple, easy and user-friendly interface will be successful.

3. App Development is cheaper than Web Development

Just because mobile devices are smaller in size, that doesn’t mean that an app development company will charge you pennies for the development of a mobile app. Mobile application development is as complex as the development of a website or software.

The amount of money charged by a company depends on several factors including:

  • Platforms compatibility (Android, iOS, Windows Phone or all at once)
  • Complexity of the interface design
  • The number of features
  • Back End (also known as the server part)

Besides this, the app development companies have to pay to the developers, analyst, designers, and testers. So, it is a common myth that mobile app development is cheaper than web development.

4. Mobile App can be Quickly Converted from one OS to another

The client might think that preparing a mobile application for another OS is just a matter of re-writing the application code and any app development company that offers hybrid app development services can do it quickly and easily. However, in reality, it is not an automated process, the app developers have to do all the coding part from scratch. Also, the overwhelming part of re-writing the application code is neither cheap nor fast.
