If you do not have any idea about your competitor’s new features, don’t go for it. Instead of becoming a copycat, try to decode that new feature and see why he used that feature. As you decode that feature, you will learn to make a unique feature in your application with the similar but different idea.

3. Simplify as you proceed

Users always discard complications. Take an example of Whatsapp. It is so posh and pleasing, yet user-friendly. It directly leads to communication. There is no hindrance in accessing it. This style is called as “World-class.” How much ever new features you add to your app or site, make sure your developer integrates them in the best way possible to make it readily available to the consumer.

Going mobile is the crucial factor. It is so because of the variations in mobile screens these days. some people enjoy the small screen of Sony Ericsson while few love wide screens. This problem is ever increasing because of the variation in tastes of the users. So this becomes a slight mess for the app developers. Therefore, it is advisable to visit the mobile store once you start. Having two or three reference devices helps to develop better. Always remember, smaller screen sizes are always challenging. If your Mobile app doesn’t go in well on that screen, your customer might easily be hurt. So keep track of what your Mobile app developer is doing in the designing part to keep the templates pleasing to the eye, whatever the screen size is.
