Cross-Platform App Management
Why do companies outsource employees? Well, there are plenty of reasons why, but two of the most common ones include reducing operating costs and they just do not have that specific job in the company.
Most companies nowadays want to have their own mobile apps and not all of them have an IT division. Therefore, outsourcing talent would be required to suit such tasks.
Although there is nothing wrong with outsourcing, you have to manage it well to ensure that the mobile application they will create is something that is up to par with your set standards.
In this article, I will go over some tips for successful cross-platform app management specifically for the app development.
1. Always Go for Cross-Platform Apps
Sure, native applications have much better performance, but as a business owner, you want to get the best possible coverage.
That is why developing a cross-platform app will be more beneficial for you than having a native app. That being said, make sure that your app development team knows how to create cross-platform apps that do not look clunky on either platform.
2. Create an App that Focuses on User Experience
No developer is one and the same. They always have something that will set them apart from the rest. For example, there are some developers that always go by the book and they end up creating just an “okay” app.
However, there are also some people that might go out of the box when it comes to creativity, but they always make it a point to have an app that is focused on user experience.
Although cross-platform apps work on any operating system, there are certain things that are present in one OS and not the other.
For this purpose, make sure that the developers that you hire know exactly what to do to improve user experience and tapping into individual operating system differences.
3. Choose a Reliable App Development Framework
A web app is technically a cross-platform app because it can be installed and run on any operating system. But, you have to know that a web app is created using HTML and wrapped in a native container to work on all mobile OSes.
A cross-platform app is different because it uses a much more robust app development framework. That is why you would also need to invest in a good framework. A good example of this is Microsoft’s Xamarin.
4. Always Monitor Customer Feedback
Once your application is deployed to the public, look at your app’s page to see possible customer feedback. If you’ve garnered positive reviews, then good. But, if there are negative ones, people would usually tell you the reasons why.
If there are broken features or any other negative stuff about your app, make sure to fix them asap.
5. Regular Updates Are a Must
If you release updates regularly, it will tell your customers that you care for them and your application. So, always release updates on the reg.
