iOS applications has always been in demand but building a successful one totally depends on certain factors. Apple is a big platform for any developer to launch their application but iOS is also a challenging platform as there are certain regulations and policies that a developer needs to take care of. Here are a few pointers that can help a developer build a remarkable application.
- Simple & effective UI
An application is effective if the user Interface is easy and simple to understand. Thus, every app developer needs to understand few important factors while validating the idea such as navigation and browsing within the application. The user must feel at ease while browsing the options available.
Adding UI elements with a 3D touch can enhance an easy selection from a list or drop down menu. The users will find the application more engaging with good UI elements. Though, it should be understood that the UI with 3D features performs differently on mobile and computers.
- Content structuring and design
A good content and its layout in a mobile application should be perfect. There are many parameters, which should be considered while strategizing the content for a mobile application. The content should be readable. If the font size is too less then it will constrain the readers eyes. In case of a bigger font size, the content might not fit in a single screen.
Scrolling the screen to read the content might kill the interest of the reader. Another important factor is continuity. If the content is divided among several webpages then the content should be relatable. When it comes to adding images to the content, the developer should adjust the scalability.
- Error handling while app development
There is a lot of coding involved when it comes to developing an iOS application. Thus, every developer must remember that the application should test for any errors before it hits the market. The errors can seriously affect the ratings of the application and it’s popularity among the users.
Thus to bring your application among the top 5, a developer must think of every error that might occur. For instance, the developer has introduced an input box for age but only tried entering numeric and didn’t check with alphabet and special characters then it is an error. Thus, if such a case occurs, the user must get an error notification.
- Keeping up with Apple regulations
iOS is known for its high-end technology and has developed a trust factor among it s audience. This is the result of Apple’s strict policies when it comes to what users get on their platform. In case of mobile application, Apple has set certain standards for quality check and every approval takes ample amount of time. Thus, developers are suggested to abide by the apple’s guidelines to avoid any delays for releasing their application. Rectifying the code is difficult and therefore avoiding it in the first place is wise.
- Well equipped with Swift & objective C
There are a lot of programming languages that could be used to develop a smart iOS application but few have recognizable mentions such as objective C and Swift. These two languages are considered to be some of the most promising ones when it comes to developing an app for apple. Earlier Objective C was preferred more but ever since Swift entered the market, it became the developer’s choice. Some of the coder’s even use both to develop a better product with good features. Thus, learning these two languages will help the iOS developers in bringing out a quality application.
