Interactive apps have been gaining momentum amongst many industries be it cosmetics, health, monetary solutions, eCommerce and many more. The number of smartphone users in the world has now surpassed 2 billion, according to the E-marketer, which is an increase of about 12.6% over the past years. This is the reason, interactive and innovative dashboard applications are being developed day by day to add value to a company or an organization and keep the users committed to using their service, thus adding more value to a firm’s image and brand.
As interactive mobile applications enable the process of an ongoing interaction with the application end users, thereby allowing them to be more engaged and committed during the app usage. While developing Interactive applications, one should keep in mind that they need to be simple, intuitive, and be seamlessly scalable to get integrated with large application interfaces. These factors form the important aspects that are vital for the successful usage of the application and shall be discussed in due course of the blog.
Developing a Fine Interactive Mobile Application
An application might be of good quality with all the necessary content but its success depends on various factors such as the user need, visual appeal interactivity, responsiveness, appeal, and intuitiveness. Thus, user friendly design has given more importance along with the crucial aspects.
Applications should be designed such that they comprise of more intuitive icons instead of heavy verbose texts. Icons not only help prospective users to get better acquainted with an application, but also help them to overcome the issue of language barriers. Incorporating a graphical tutorial for users can familiarize them with the application and the features as well.
For example, a shopping application can have an icon for each category, which the user just needs to tap and access as an option of his or her choice.
It is important to define how useful the application is for the target audience. Once the application is developed it is important to get feedback internally or externally. This helps to gauge if the actual purpose of the application is achieved.
A dose of artificial intelligence can help in making the application much more appealing. Applications should be designed in a way such that, they help users save time, thus meeting the need for efficiency. For example, the application can record the last page from where the user had left and allow him to start from the same point.
Performance and Security
This is an equally important aspect while developing a mobile application. The application should function such that the processor is optimally used and the overall device performance is not affected. Security is another major concern for deploying any sort of transaction application or for apps that involve user authentication. To keep the end to end communication, secure, various measures can be taken such as token based authentications, data encryption, and alerts for non-standard application behavior.
Once an application is developed, it does not mean that the job is done. The success of the application also depends on keeping the users committed and hooked to the application. Regular sample demonstrations amongst focus groups can be a feasible option to get feedback and gauge the process of an app’s shortcomings.
