People who are novices in the iPhone applications development industry will require some knowledge in order to begin creating good quality applications for Apple mobile and iPad devices. The market for the development of iOS applications is huge and is expanding each day. At the same time this market is also highly competitive. This is the reason that you have to be quite cautious while developing apps for this competitive market. Design and features are the main factors which decide whether an application is a success or a failure and also how successful and popular it will become.
At the time of developing iPhone applications one of the most crucial phases is the designing phase. In general business applications meant for simple computer systems, designing is not that important but for iPad and iPhone it is extremely essential. According to the statistics collected by some research in the field, it has been discovered that while creating apps for computer systems, designing takes up around 20% of the time required in the entire process, while it takes up 60% of the application development time when creating apps for iPhone and ipad.
iPAd 3 is the world’s most popular tablet device and it offers retina display which has pin point clear visuals. Hence your aim should be to create an interface that has the right thing in the right place. For instance, you may have developed an application with great features which are not available with any other apps in the iTunes store. The flaw here may be that while operating the features the user is not able to see the features because of poor design quality.
Clear visibility and originality:
You need to remember that the applications that you are designing are meant for devices with very small screens. Hence visibility of an application’s functionality has a lot of importance for the end user. Hence the design of your app should always be such that makes the functionality of your application clearly visible. Also keep in mind that you should never copy or edit visuals available on iTunes. Remember that designing is just like an art and is a highly creative work. Hence put in all your creativity and originality in the design of the app.
The features that are provided for operation by the end user are referred to as the functionality of the apps. Remember that proper research is the base of the success of any application. Hence you should conduct a market research of all the applications available from most of the good mobile app development firms. Perform a thorough study of each good and bad feature of the applications that your market competitors have developed. Note down all the features that seem attractive in the applications and use this analysis while developing your own app.
Do not just pick up and implement the same functionality that you have seen, try to innovate and make something new. If you copy an application people using it will definitely come to know about it and write negative reviews about your app which will be negative publicity.
