Just because mobile devices are small, that doesn’t mean that the company will charge you less for mobile app development compared to web development. It is complex just like the development of software.

To develop a mobile app, the company have to pay to the analyst, developers, designers, and testers. So it is a myth that development of the mobile application is a cheap thing and anyone can afford it.

The client thinks that converting an app from one OS to another is just matter of re-writing the application code and app Development Company can do it easily and quickly. But actually it is not an automated process, a developer must have to do coding from the beginning.

6. App needs to be developed for all mobile OS

It is not necessary to develop an app for all mobile OS like android, iOS or windows. It depends on the numbers of users for that particular type of application. If the numbers of users are good on each platform, you have enough budget and you want to target them, you can go for multi-platform app development.

7. High User Ratings emerge from HQ Graphics used in Apps

Graphics play an important role in the success of an app and also the flow and simplicity of the application.

8. App Success depends on functionality stuffing in apps

Functionality plays an important role in the success. An app with the complex flow and multi-functionality won’t be successful but an app with the user-friendly interface will be successful.
