How To Build Mobile Apps Quickly Without Sacrificing Stability

Mobile Security and Stability

It’s a fear that many mobile app developers have. That in the haste to construct a mobile app and get it out to market, your slapdash efforts will lead to a buggy and poor performing app. This fear is very viable, especially if your team is rushing to construct an entire multi-leveled app in one-go. You need a way to build your product quickly and effectively without compromising security. Here are the four main ways to build your innovative mobile app in no-time and still make sure that your app is secure and bug-free.

Launch Your MVP, Start Testing

Use the Lean Startup method, launch a lean version of your core product – your MVP – and immediately begin collecting data using a build-measure-learn feedback loop. Through testing, all feedback should be collected that continually informs the development process. Plan to operate on very short iterative cycles or “sprints,” where updates are released in short 2-4 week periods.

Hybrid Apps

PhoneGap-Stacked-Black

Cross-platform hybrid solutions allow you to get 2 for the price of 1. Two versions of your App –Android and iOS – for the same code. This is a huge time-saver as opposed to writing native code for Android and iOS separately. Having said that, hybrid Apps have performance limitations — hybrid Apps handle animations with less fluidity and slow your phone down because they take up a lot of memory. For these reasons, hybrid Apps are best used to enter new markets quickly. If need be, they can then be replaced with more robust, native Apps at a later stage.

Two examples of cross hybrid solutions include Adobe Phonegap and Xamarin.

Integrate Pre-Made Engagement Applets to Increase Engagement

Once you have your MVP, it’s time to think about how your mobile app is going to effectively engage or communicate with your customers. A number of mobile engagement platforms have popped up recently to provide you with just that — all types of pre-made applets that you can add to your core product without any additional coding.

One of the newest platforms launched recently offers codeless mobile engagement . It has a variety of free engagement-driven applets that can be integrated with developer’s core products, without additional coding. The applets are managed and implemented through a smart SDK dashboard and are constantly updated to comply with each operating system demands. This enables not only hyper-accelerated development process but also a continual rock-solid coded solution.

Set Up Automated Testing to Ensure App Security

Automating your mobile application testing is a huge time-saver. Automating your testing allows you to run a suite of tests that would otherwise take hours to complete manually. By speeding up testing, you will be able to expand test coverage in the same amount of time. And you’ll sleep better with the knowledge that your code is bug-free. Appium is a great option on the market right now. Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid and mobile web apps for iOS and Android apps.
