Decide the Recipe smartly
When you put a step to develop the iPhone application; the first question you would be encountered with will be ‘what should be the Genre of the application?’ This stage is the first as well as the most crucial and deciding step too. Before making an application you must be sure to hit the target crowd with your application or you will mistakenly cook a ‘Non-Vegetarian dish for your vegetarian guests’.
Add 2 spoon of SIMPLICITY with 1 spoon of ATTRACTIVENESS
It is a very important point to look upon. Most of the application developers commit the mistake at this section. When you create a mobile application; you must prefer the simplicity against the attractiveness. Mobile application development is a way different from the web development; a mobile user is offered with a very small using area as compared to the desktop view. So an iPhone Application developer must provide an easy and simple interface. Attractiveness is the garnishing spices in the recipe while simplicity is the basic salt.
Neat and clean Buttons are a MUST
Usability of a mobile application is the key criteria to judge its performance. Every mobile application has some command and call buttons with the aid of which a user can easily access the options. These call buttons and functions should be neat and clean so that the user finds an ease to use the application; otherwise he will be confused regarding the options and at the end will turn his face towards your competitor.
Stirring should be ample and effective
While building a web application; navigation within the website or app is a common practice. it is always advisable that you provide sufficient navigation option to the user. But providing EXTRA navigation option may puzzle the user and hence your application will lose the star ranking points. So you should always integrate only the needed navigation for a much effective working.
