The main goal of mobile apps is to provide a better user experience for the customers. However, developing mobile applications is a difficult process that requires several iterations and changes before it reaches perfection without getting any unwanted errors, and every change in the mobile apps can increase your cost for developing mobile applications. Before we develop any kind of mobile apps to any client, the first thing when comes to our mind is to make how to engager customer interaction within the app. At the early stages, we will have to make many brainstorming activities with the team and make note of the pros and cons of our various ideas.
