Do you think that apps make a smartphone smart? If your response to the above questions is in affirmation, we think alike. I believe that smartphones are capable of doing a lot but this capability is courtesy apps. Everything that creators boast about can be attributed to the Software that make it happen and the continuous evolution that keeps it exciting.
If you are an app developer, you should applaud yourself for creating apps that matter and apps that make a difference in the day to day functioning. However, the current times require knowledge that is exceptional enough to give you an edge above other developers.
Work Smart and Not Hard
This is a common saying. If you are a developer, give it a little thought. Enterprise mobile apps development involves skills like proficiency in a programming language, familiarity with development platforms, IDEs, etc. And, these are great skills to possess. But, there are Software that can aide you in developing an app in a much faster way and almost flawless coding for native and hybrid apps. Using such Software can make a hell lot of a difference in the time and effort that you put to create an app.
Same Software can help you integrate third party APIs and develop a fully functional app which can tested on the same Software using simulations for how the app will work on different devices. For an enterprise mobile app, investment in these commercial Software can prove to be beneficial because it is a single work arena for developers and testers. You can train your team to be versatile and save a lot of money by not having to hire individuals with specific knowledge.
Try the Creative Inverse Approach
App development has a fixed lifecycle. Usually starting with designing and ending with testing. A creative approach to problem solving is what can make you different than other app developers. This means that you can get innovative. Instead of starting with designing, how about starting with testing. You would be wondering how that is possible.
Until and unless, you are creating enterprise mobile apps that is one of its kinds, you always have a lot of existing prototypes or examples of the app that you are wanting to create. So, how about testing (analyzing) those apps for loopholes that can help you create an app that bridges the gap. This approach starts with testing and ends with testing. Thus, giving you a clear picture of what is expected and what is achieved.
The success parameter of an app does not only rely on the number of downloads. In a superficial scenario, may a million downloads and then a million uninstalls get you back to square one. What you need is to dedicate time and invest money in creating an app that is useful to people and gives monetary benefit to you or your organization. This requires you to get smart and creative to sustain the competition that is only getting tougher by the day.
