These modern gadgets have given a new definition to the way people survive in this techsavvy world. You will find an app on the app store for almost every facet of professional and personal life. Every business owner is looking forward to creation of new mobile applications for employees and their customers. Mobile phones and tablets have swept away the popularity of PCs and Laptops in no time. After 2007, things have completely changed for mobile world in Australia itself. The iPhone developers in Australia have changed the way they think about making something out of the box.
Software development was no more about some web application running over different browsers but now it was also about a mobile website and some mobile app running in offline mode. The current situation of software development is far from being a cake walk. Highly distributed environment, multiple technologies and various computing networks is something that iOS programmers must offer. These systems integrate legacy systems with newer ones. The pressure to cope up with the budding range and technology of handheld devices is never ending. This is the reason why most of them recoil from the notion.
Programmers aim to code for an iPhone app which shall make employees more efficient and creative, commit some general mistakes in the development procedure. Security issues and real-time monitoring are some of the few things that need to be carefully addressed.
Listed below are a few do’s and don’ts:
Keep in mind the user experience:
Irrespective of the device (iPad or iPhone), modern gadgets are quite different from desktop PCs and laptops. It is quite essential for you to understand and try not to just port the existing application on mobile. Mobile phones have a different architecture and low resources to process as well as a very different input mechanism. Simply copying the interface will make the app hard to manage.
Likewise many websites that already exist; we need to have an autonomous version optimized for mobile. Keep the user in mind, and design and develop accordingly because this is something cannot be avoided.
Sensors and form factor
Today is the time when you use 3G or LTE, a high resolution camera, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and what not. Optimum use of these sensors is what really matters. Starting from the very basic features like reorientation of the display when the device is tilted, permit users to instantly take a snap and upload it straight into the system.
Don’t create an iPhone app just for the sake of it
Do not just tag yourself because everybody is developing something or the other on the App Store. Try to avoid wasting your time in writing code without any analysis. Spend some time to recognize the needs within the business and industry for which the solution has to be developed. Pay some attention on finding how an app can change the way things can be done for better results.
Learn from the existing consumer and don’t just copy them
Thousands of apps have already been developed for Apple App Store. While scratching together the mobile application for any business, keep in mind that there is a lot of stuff that can be scratched together from consumer apps to improve the functionality.
