Secret Ingredients of Great Mobile Apps

by Rob Stephen getaprogrammer

What makes a successful mobile app? Do you know the secret ingredients of the best applications you may find in your mobile App Store? Here’s what is shared by an expert in mobile app development

Today, the world seems to run on applications no matter for what purpose. The App Stores are filled with a flock of eye-catching and well-designed applications serving the people in different ways. But at the same time, you can find poorly-designed applications as well that is really frustrating to use. While some fundamental functionalities like the usability and layout help in boosting the user-experiences, one of the problems are the lack of expected features. 

Once you have a basic idea about mobile app development and things like choosing the right colour schemes, the UI design, the widgets, customer preferences, etc., you can get started with the designing and development of the application. If you fail to understand what the users are actually looking for from such business applications, you might lose your users and allow your competitors to stay a step ahead. Hope you won’t really want this to happen with your app, right? There are a few features that can make your app look pleasing and give your users simply fall in love with it. 


Here’s what your mobile app must-have. 



Many users have short attention spans. If your app design is difficult to navigate and explore then these users might lose interest very soon or just after a single-use. If your users are not able to or face difficulty in accessing the information easily and quickly, they can get irritated and look for other similar apps. Uncluttered and clear screens with readable and clear content, quality graphics, and a simple menu can keep your users engaged in the application, providing them with great user experience. 


High Speed:

Fast-loading screens are always more appreciated and accepted by users. And it’s true. Who will like to keep waiting for several minutes just to get a page loaded? This can give way to frustration and boredom ultimately resulting in making the users seek for something better in the App Store. Speed of your application is guaranteed by the right set of graphics and only the requirements elements and not fetching those large databases and tables. Keep it quick and keep it simple. That’s one of the success keys. 


Good Image Resolutions:

While you need to maintain a proper balance between the resolution and functionalities, you have to be sure that whatever you have provided on the screen is detailed enough to give a clear idea to the users. Things should be clear and images must be of good resolution to meet the quality standards. Today, with more and more applications in the App Stores, users expect hi-definition and excellent colour choices on the UI. Anything less can limit your application users and sales. 



Security on the internet has become a common problem for all applications now. With applications storing personal and confidential data about the users including credit card details, debit card info, contact details of the users, etc., security and safety is absolutely a must-have feature. 


Search Options:

Though it is an important feature of an application, still there are many that do not have a search option. The capability to search for the exact products gets simpler with this particular feature. 


Push Notifications: 

Push notifications are easier to send as compared to sending emails that are more likely to end up in a spam folder. A push notification can be a graphic, a text, or can be the combination of both. Personalised and relevant push messaging can work much better than the unsolicited notifications as a push message solely aims at a particular user and his or her interests. 


Other than these, providing a user feedback options to let the users jot down their feedback, continuous updates sending feature, use of bold and bright colour schemes, and platform flexibility, can keep your mobile app stand out as the best one.
