A question often raised by smartphone application users is the need for constant updates and the app not being a "final product". The truth is that there are strong reasons for this. In this article we will make a detailed analysis of this need.
Operating System Updates
An important aspect of developing an app is that it is programmed based on a number of assumptions that may change over time. The intended operating system version is one of them. For example, if you develop an Android application today, you will probably adapt it to work on Android 9 and earlier. However, in the future new versions of this operating system will be released. These versions may change the way it works and, consequently, the implementation of various features. The same situation happens for both Android and iOS systems. This is one of the factors that may make it necessary to make changes to your previously developed app.
Another factor that often leads to an update of an app is the need to troubleshoot detected issues. Although a lot of testing is done before launching an app to the market, the fact is that only extended use in the "real world" can give real clues about corrections to be made. Therefore, it is advisable to monitor app users' appreciations to see if there are any issues that should be corrected or improved. This turns out to be an ongoing process because, due to new versions coming out, new problems may arise.
Even if at any given time the app has no bugs detected, it may always require improvements and new features that can be developed. Continued use of the application by users can create new needs and thus make room for adding new features. For an app to evolve and grow it is important that the feedback from its users is not neglected.
Due to the above needs it is therefore imperative to ensure continued support of your app over time. Only in this way you can ensure that it remains functional and improves over time. Thus, it is important to choose a trusted partner to develop your app. Web House follows you from the planning stage to post delivery support of the app. This ensures that your app is always being tracked by professionals and will be adapted and improved over time to respond to new technology challenges and changes.
Updating and improving smartphone operating systems is a constant over time. Whether it is to solve problems or just to improve the system for newer terminals with new technologies, this update is an unavoidable reality. When making changes to the operating system, there is often a need to adapt one or another features of your app to keep it functional.
On the other hand, prolonged use of the app by users can provide valuable feedback on improvements that can be made as well as errors to be fixed.
To ensure that your app continues to meet your users' needs effectively, you should ensure continued support over time. Therefore, you should choose a partner to develop your app that is able to do a proper follow up.
