Top Challenges During App Development

app development challenges winklix


As a project manager in Winklix , i always try to balance between constant change the the realistic expectation in the app by clients . We often here , there is nothing much in the app , it is really simple to build , but client is still figuring out the wireframe of it , since we are agile , that could all change .
I know it feels like weird , hearing those lines dozen of times , but the beautiful way of doing the agile work is to constantly change the work to cope up with the client requirement . This also help us in becoming active rather than reactive . And a plus point for me : no more change request after that please..!!
Winklix has ruled out rick management strategies in order to better handle the project risk , even before climbing up the development stairs . We can say that during developmental process , we always get confused between the realistic thing the imaginary one , making it right at some place and wrong at other .
To plan our project in successful wrap , we must think on multi options availability . Say what if client’s back end resources fails to deliver API web services as agreed , will we be able to deliver the project in X weeks ? We must always have a plan B ready in case of worst situation , in order to successfully wrap the project. Always remember ” We always have the options “.
Listed below are some of the biggest challenges while developing the mobile app , and some reliable solutions  : 

A First Time Tech Entrepreneur 

It can be great if you are have great and fresh mindset for developing app . At that point , you must be having higher expectation from your would be app project . If you have been through your would be dream project for a month ,  it might get difficult to accept concepts to fit’s each and every users mind.
The Solution : Keeping an open mind , and taking opinion from friends and stakeholders help you to be familiar with consumer demands and strategy .The agility of multiple professionals  is the reason you chose an agency like Winklix , but you need to let each party do their things. 

Third Party API Dependence

Time and time again  , I see client dependency on third parties API , which are not ” integration friendly ” . This means there might be less documents , or API may not be friendly enough for easier implementation , thus we have to do R&D , taking it more and more time for project completion .Also last minute changes in project , may create a ripple effect on front end , thus increasing the time frame to work on the changes , thus thereby diverting our mind final developmental and UI furnishing process .
The Solution : Figuring out the buffer between hand off of API service and front end development of those API , will help us in saving time and successful implementation of API’s within stipulated time frame .

No Single Product Owner On Client Side

Getting quick feedback from client side , or by their team members or stakeholders , will definitely add value to the project , and developers team members will also find it useful thus making the easy and ready to use , upto expectation app .There can be nothing more heartbreaking than account manager , seeing a product vision changing again and again by multiple stakeholders due to their un-agreed priorities and decision making .
The Solution : Appoint a single , devoted point of contract with your team and customer and prioritise feedback and requirement from custom on regular scale .

Development Or Design Plan Doe’s Not Include User Testing

Not testing the idea , prototype or regular mockup will surely open doors for successfully developing app .Alternative , “if doors does not open by itself , you have to itself know the doors “.We can find often entrepreneurs shy from releasing or sharing a WIP app , due to concern about idea theft ( “I need a NDA , before sharing it to anyone ” hahahaha ) . At Winklix , we can be guilty of this “value blindness ” as well . We believe in beta testing of app , before releasing the app , with can add wings to your app .

The Solution : Planning for user testing on every phase of app development process is only way to solve this prob. You will also need to beta release your app to some chunks of people or testers , before launching our app .

Preparing for app development will open your app doors of success

Agile project manager will help you to respond to complication during development process and will also give you regular updated about your project . Instead of mindset of okay scenario , focus on best-case scenario , and with a positive thinking of  ” this is going to be great “.

Tips & Tricks To Build A Successful Mobile Application

tips for building secret app

Lets start with a simple question !! How many applications are there in your mobile screen .If i am not wrong , it may not be below 10 apps . Apps are now a days becoming essential part of our life , whether be it for searching a restaurant , to booking a cab , recharging mobiles and much more .

Market Research Before Launching

Are you having an great idea  ? Is your idea unique . That might be not . Is this world numerous of minds are available , and hence your idea might not be unique .

Going through the reviews about your competitor will give you knowledge of creating a awesome mobile app .

Android Or iOS ? 

In my view , you should go for both the platform at the same time . Inspite of the fact that most of the user are android phone users in world , but in case you are developing an app for iOS platform , that app seems to be more profitable and your app can grab  a good users from there.

Rapid Prototyping

Once you are done with your idea , have a paper and pen in your hand and start drawing a outlook if the app , and then you can move further with BETA user of the application .

Designing For Multiple Devices

There are plenty of audience for using different devices . So you must build an app with is compatible with all the devices , ranging form different screen sizes , connectivity , storage space ,and so on .

Why iOS Developer Should Prefer Swift Over Objective-C

An iOS application can be easily developed if you are having a good programming language command . The programming language used now a days are swift and objective-c for development of iOS applications . But in present scenario , swift is being chosen more often than objective-c . Swift is mainly used for development of apple softwares , which are fully compatible with IOT(Internet Of Things) substances like apple watch , TVOS and iOS . Swift language has been developed after many challenges , in such a way that we can improve the performance of the application , adding the features of objective-c in it .

Some of the features of swift are given below :

  • Innovativness : Since it included all features of all the existing language , it helps developers to make the app unique and innovative . It is a easy to use simple coding language which can be under stable by anyone who has keen interest in this , thereby giving an opportunity of developing the app by more and more people .
  • Easy to use and errors can be rectified easily : In objective-c , writing a wrong code will gives you no result , and it was almost impossible to find and rectify that error , thereby making it difficult to rectify bugs and errors , thus leading to unimaginable functionality of app and crashing of application at the same time .In swift the option and value types in it will make it clear and easier to find bugs and clear the logics behind it  .
  • It has high potential : Developers are moving on to swift rather than preferring objective-c now a days . The easy to use composition of languages  , and all features of objective-c , has given opportunity to developers for developing the app for all purposes and at the same time easily rectifying of the application errors , with minimal help and without facing any difficulties .
  • It uses simple grammar and syntax  :Objective-c was build on C and to differentiate the type and keywords, developers use @ symbol  in objective-c .Swift does not have this features . Swift can easily adopt different keywords rather than ending up with the symbols .Also method calls are no longer used in swift . The methods in swift are separated by comma list of parameters enclosed in parentheses .
  • It is fast : Swift is no doubt fast programming languages . All codes in swift are written in language that is compatible with latest hardware . is also leading mobile app developer in delhi as well as mumbai , India serving clients all over world while using latest technologies for development .
