Avatar New York keeps business owners up to date with the latest, most effective design techniques so they get the most out of their online traffic. Mobile app development is an effective option for business owners who want to engage consumers and increase revenue. A well-designed app gives customers convenient access to a company’s products or services, and it demonstrates a business is up to date with the latest digital technology.

According to Todd Johnson, managing director of Avatar New York, "Customers need to be able to navigate a mobile application seamlessly. That positive experience enhances a business' good reputation for customer service."

Here are five elements of a successful mobile app:

1. Fast Load Speed

A slow-loading app breeds impatience. In fact, a Kissmetrics survey found that most app users wait six to 10 seconds before abandoning pages. If the app needs more time to load, a screen notifying the user about the loading process helps reduce frustration.

2. Performance Reliability

Users don't have patience for apps that continually crash. Companies should fix all bugs before releasing the app. If consumers report issues, the business should release a free, updated version that fixes the problems.

3. Operating-System Compatibility

An app needs to work well on different mobile operating systems. Elements like notifications, messages and switching between apps work differently depending on the operating system.

4. Clear Formatting

The size of the screen also makes a big difference in user experience. This is why app designers should use a multichannel approach with a multiplatform application-development tool. The layout should fit each screen size so that the user can see primary content without needing to zoom or scroll horizontally.

5. Organized Layout

Controls should be close to the content they modify. By creating an easy-to-read layout, the user will be able to navigate smoothly. For this reason, the developer should be familiar with the UI elements of UIKit, such as bars, content views, controls and temporary views.
