by Rob Stephen getaprogrammer

To stay ahead on the App Stores you need to have a modern and competitive mobile app for your business. Here are the 11 elements you must consider during mobile app development to give your app a competitive edge. 


The new rules and regulations of mobile app development have undergone several changes and modifications in these recent years. With the latest trends in mobile applications, new and advanced features have been introduced, right from the integration of AR to ML, IoT attributes, simplicity in design, and more. Unique features and functionalities, and impeccable design elements give a competitive edge to the apps. There are over 5.6 million apps catering to the different needs of people today and to stay ahead you need a modern application with trending features, a user-friendly interface, high security, and user-driven elements.  


Now without further ado, let's explore the key elements a modern mobile app should have in 2022. 


Push notifications:

Much more effective than the other modes of sending notifications to the users and better than emails, push notifications should be integrated into the modern mobile applications now. With this element, you get the option to directly interact with your users and can easily offer them products and services based on their preferences and tastes. A push notification may contain anything, a text, a graphic, both text and graphics together, or anything else regarding the products and services or any offers, discounts, etc. 


High-quality image resolution:

The visual appearance of your app matters as it creates the very first impression on the users. This makes it highly important to use high-quality images and graphics to ensure a clear view of all the elements and content on the app UI. 


Incorporating advanced search feature:

Incorporate advanced search features in your app to enhance the user experience. This will help users to easily and quickly find their desired products. This has a great impact on the user experience especially if the app has a huge number of products or vast content. The advanced search option in the form of a search box on top of the home page will allow the users to search for their relevant content or products using keywords, phrases, or directly using the name of the product. This element or feature makes the app content easy to access for all users. 


Social media integration:

Social media sharing is not anymore restricted to sharing only images. It also includes sharing of product links, services, blog links, posts on new arrivals, promotions, offers, discounts, and more. Integrating social media platforms to your app can directly take your users to your business's social media pages from their personal profiles and can let them know more about your business keeping them engaged in your business even on those platforms apart from only your app. Also, your users can share your posts if they feel thereby ensuring more business exposure and driving more users. You can integrate social media buttons on all the pages of your app. 


A responsive app design:

The market is flooded with varieties of mobile devices including smartphones and tablets that have different screen sizes. And your app should have a responsive design. This will ensure to give a uniform look and feel to all your users no matter which mobile device he or she is using or what is the size of the screen. Make sure your users do not have to move the app UI left and right and scroll up and down just to get a view of all the content of the UI. Ensure everything is visible to them at one glance and with everything visible on the page. You can test the app design on different devices with different screen sizes to ensure your app design is completely responsive and device compatible. 


A simple design with uncluttered elements is the key:

The mobile application design should not be aesthetically pleasing, uncluttered and should have proper use of white spaces. A simple and clean design can offer easy navigation and can, in turn, enhance the user experience, ensuring everything is visible properly and understandable on the screen. Every design element on the interface should be properly placed without creating a mess. The fonts should be readable, and the images should be clear and should not be too big or too small. An easy-to-use interface design is what you need to create. 


Integration of AR or Augmented Reality in multiple systems:

Augmented Reality or AR has been there around for quite a couple of years and is now one of the latest mobile application development trends. Mobile users have already started experiencing AR in many avatars in different applications. And the app developers are looking for new and better ways to use ARCore for Android and ARkit for Apple applications now. The combination of virtual and real worlds is beneficial for many industries that are trying to offer enhanced experiences to modern and demanding users. 


Extensive cross-platform coverage:

For all app development companies, it is suggested to use modern or the latest cross-platform application development frameworks that help developers to develop an app for multiple platforms much faster and ensure a native-like user experience across the platforms.  


Robust security:

Mobile application development for various industries like the HIPAA-protected healthcare industry and more are all dependent on confidentiality and stringent data integrity. Developers need to use highly advanced security tools and technologies to protect the apps from all threats, viruses, and hackers. Every app should be well-protected to ensure reliability and enhanced user experience. 


Integrate provisions for user feedback:

Giving the app users the option and space to give their reviews or feedback on the app gives them the chance of improving the application as per the feedback. This is important to give value to the user demands and offer a better user experience. 


Offline availability:

Let your users use your app to a certain extent even when they do not have an internet connection or simply when they are offline. This will increase user engagement as users will be able to use the app most of the time. 


By incorporating these above-mentioned features or elements in your mobile app, you can ensure to meet the modern requirements of the users and witness guaranteed success.
