Creating mobile apps is fast-becoming a major consideration for small business owners these days. However, the current number of applications already available in the market somehow gives them the second thoughts – whether they will be able to create value for people seeking for more advanced mobile technology. A confirmation of this statement can assure sales and a reliable flow of profit coming their way. If you find yourself in this dilemma, study the following insights which can guide you to the path of successful invention.

Think about platforms – It is safe to say that the mobile world is divided. The existence of iOs and android explains that quite clearly. When creating mobile apps, there is a big possibility that an application may not work as efficiently in one device compared to the other device. When planning your design, be sure to cover desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones and the Web. A user, for one, may have a couple or three of these devices. He would definitely want to continue whatever work he started in his desktop using his smartphone when he is on the road. Would it not be very convenient to use an app which can be downloaded across all platforms?

Focus on users' needs – Are you focusing on how to create a mobile app that can showcase your talent or can help your target users? Face the fact that mobile users are the ones who will pay for your inventions. Therefore, you must know their needs, motivations and behaviors when working or playing using their mobile gadgets.

Drop complexities – Always keep in mind the challenges a first time owner of a smartphone or any mobile gadget must face. Come up with an app that is very easy to use that even a none-reader can understand how to make it work for the purpose it was intended for. You would know that your invention is not complicated to use if a first time user masters it quickly after a few tries.

Copy what is seen in the real world – How real is the application you invented? Your answer to this will depend on how efficient it is in delivering the purpose for which it was intended. In the world of house cleaning, for example, consumer would buy products which they are dependable for that purpose. In the same manner, your invention must be very functional and must improve user-experience.

Design a pricing strategy – Creating mobile apps really comes with a price whether the apps are for free or paid. Users definitely want free ones. The inventors of these can earn through advertisements. There are big advertisement networks which help maximize the revenue of the inventors and the biggest among them is Google. When assigning a price to your application, think about value proposition and competitiveness. Research about the prices of other apps sold under the category to which your invention belongs. Mobile users, in general, are willing to pay for an app that is highly functional and can give back their money's worth.
