Four things to consider when creating a mobile app

Posted By: Jason

From reward cards to fitness trackers, shopping lists to online stores, just about every company has an app for something. In a world where we're very rarely separated from our phones for more than a few minutes, apps are valuable advertising real estate; and a feather in the cap of any business.

If you're thinking of creating a mobile app for your business, here are just a few things to consider:

Know your audience

When creating an app, the first thing to look at is what would be valuable and worthwhile to your customer base or potential audience. Having a good idea of what your target audience likes and is likely to use is invaluable in creating an app that will be successful, and can be advertised as a value-add to your existing customers.

Create an engaging platform

Once you know what your audience likes, the next thing to consider is how you can create a platform that is not just useful, but also engaging. An easy-to-use, fully connected platform is far more likely to be continuously used than an overcomplicated design. Don't overlook the small details, like a natural login method and clear navigation for the best customer experience.

Stay on-brand

If your business has a strong, established brand, it's essential to ensure that everything connected to your business is also on-brand. This not only helps to establish what you do and how you do it in the mind of your customers, but it also offers a new way to get your business across to curious or interested people who might not have heard of you before.

Functionality and aesthetic

Two key elements of any excellent app design that app developers swear by both an attractive design and a functional application. Having an app that's visually appealing, yet offers a service that your customers need or that will improve their experience with your brand, combine to form an application that will be downloaded and used time and time again.
