When you first got that great new app idea, your thoughts probably sped to how useful or fun the app would be for users and how downloads of your new application would immediately skyrocket. But, creating a good app takes more than just having a good idea. Plenty of people have good ideas and plenty of apps get downloaded and deleted daily. When you set out to start android app creation, you need to go a step further in your thinking and consider who to ensure the continued performance of your application once it has been downloaded by a user. Good performance equates to frequent use, recommendations to other users, and the overall longevity of your application. The following issues can affect the performance of an application.
Even if you narrow your sights on android app creation and cut out the difficulties of considering multiple platforms, you still have to consider the fact that your app will be used on multiple sizes, styles, and models of Android devices, from the larger screens of a tablet to the smaller screens of the leading Android smart phones. These devices will also have varying speeds and processing capabilities. One way to avoid complications caused by a variety of devices is to ensure that your application coding is a streamlined and efficient as possible, optimizing it to suit as many device variables as possible.
Streamlining the Look
Not only is app navigation essential for basic use, it is essential for ensuring that your app will perform well on many different devices. The more simple and intuitive your graphics, the less cluttered the app will appear on a smaller screen. The most useful apps are clean, clear, and designed for functionality. When developing the coding, or working through details with your developers, it is a good idea to avoid adding unnecessary objects or creating unnecessary coding strings. The most direct approach is always best because it will help your app perform better on more devices. Another tip is to consolidate arrays-if you have multiple arrays you should try to condense them into a single array that will streamline your coding. The more steam-lined your application is, the less coding there is involved, the less coding involved, the less memory and processor power your app needs to run. Cutting back on processing requirements and memory usage increases the speed at which the application will function, and in today’s on-the-go society, the faster something works, the more people are likely to user that tool.
People love instant gratification. For an application to have longevity it needs to not only be based on a good concept and provide a useful service or great means of entertainment, but it also needs to function well. Often, the most functional, useful apps are the simplest. With intuitive navigation, focused design, and a lack of unnecessary object-allowing for simpler coding- means you’ll end up with an app that runs fast, works well on many devices, and is easy for users to integrate into their daily lives. Apps that don’t meet these requirements may be downloaded, but will likely also be quickly deleted or forgotten.
