What is the cheapest way to validate my mobile app idea?

MVP (Minimum Viable Product) has emerged to be the most cost-effective way to validate a mobile app idea.Reducing business risk phenomenally, it helps evaluate market needs and provides feedback from potential users. Creating and testing an MVP helps organizations save time, money and other resources on developing the final product. It enables businesses to find early adopters and validate the product viability before the final launch.

Should I choose Web, Native, or Hybrid development?

Choosing between Web, Native, and Hybrid app formats ultimately comes down to your business objective and what purpose the app will serve. It also depends on factors like:

How fast do you need the app to be built? What user experience should the app provide? What features do you need in the app? How complex will be the app features? What is your app development budget? What are your in-house and outsourcing app development options?

If the goal is to provide a fast, responsive and robust experience to the users, native apps are your go-to choice.They are worth the time and money you will invest.

Should I outsource mobile app development?

Choosing between in-house and outsourcing app development is a common dilemma faced by businesses across the globe.However, both the approaches come with their own pros and cons and the choice should be made depending on various factors like:

If, as an entrepreneur,you want to develop an app by saving time and money, go for outsourcing.

It is the best choice for organizations that don’t have much time and money to invest in app development with an in-house team. Nevertheless, it comes with drawbacks like communication barriers and quality risk.

Whereas, in-house development is the go-to choice for businesses that have the time and money to find suitable resources and establish an in-house team.

Despite being time-consuming and expensive, the approach provides a better understanding of business needs without compromising on quality, easy management of resources and zero communication gaps.

What are the ways to test my mobile application before launch?

Here our experts have listed the top 5 tests to perform prior to your app launch

Performance Testing
Functional Testing
Usability and Accessibility Testing
Platform and Device Specific Testing
Security Testing

To evaluate the performance of your app, you must conduct the following analysis.

  • Battery Analysis : It is crucial to analyze battery consumption of your app both when it is running in the foreground as well as in the background. Conduct stress testing to find battery issues that may arise due to long and continuous working hours.

  • Memory Analysis : This helps identify memory leaks in the app and also evaluate the chances of the app going out of memory.

  • Network Analysis : It helps identify and evaluate factors that can lead to unwanted data consumption like duplicate content, data consumption when the app runs in the background, insufficient use of data connection, etc.

What are cross platform mobile applications?

What are cross platform mobile applications?

Cross platform mobile applications can be deployed on multiple platforms like iOS and Android using a single codebase. It eliminates the need to develop separate apps for different platforms providing faster development cycles. It enables organizations to develop custom apps that are cost-effective, secure,provide easy access to plug-Ins, ideal for prototyping, easy to maintain and iterate.

Can Cross platform mobile applications save cost?

By choosing cross-platform apps, you can cut down app development costs by 30-40%.

Using a single codebase, apps for multiple platforms can be developed simultaneously. This drastically reduces app development costs when compared with native development.

Synchronized development

Using a single codebase, apps for multiple platforms can be developed simultaneously. This drastically reduces app development costs when compared with native development.

Unlike native development, enterprises opting for cross-platform development do not need to maintain multiple teams with different capabilities. They require one team making team management easier and cost-effective.
