4 Important Tips to Streamline App Development


It's a no-brainer that apps can help us in a lot of different ways. From booking hotel reservations to finding your way around an unfamiliar city, we can think of nothing apps can't do for us. And as the mobile penetration rate continues on to increase, it's only important for app developers to raise the quality of their products by adding new features or building new apps altogether.

When it comes to app development, a lot of factors come into play. One is the resources you currently have, while another is the time it takes to build the app, test it, and package it for distribution. One thing's for sure, the process takes a long time to pull off.

If you're an app developer, you may as well focus on streamlining the production process. Investing in new technologies and adopting new approaches are obviously the best way to go if you want to ease up the workflow of your development team.

Here are the five important steps you may want to consider to streamline your app development.

1. Have your staff undergo prior training

App developers use a plethora of platforms for their projects. But to make full use of these platforms, development teams will have to master and apply their skills in the production process.

Docker, for instance, is a valuable platform that your team can use to build and test your products. Considering that it's a new piece of technology, though, your team will have to update the skills they need in using the platform for creating enterprise software. For that, you may want to enroll them in the Pro Docker Training program and bring out the full benefits that Docker can provide.

2. Use cloud storage

In handling large data sets, you may want to consider cloud storage. This enables you and your team to access documents, files, and app components remotely, reducing the need for person-to-person meetings.

But one important reason to use of cloud storage is it that it allows you to secure your files offsite. In other words, you can save your team's work outside your main server so that in the event of a crisis or disaster, you can still access everything you need to continue your project.

3. Automate the process

AI has made it possible for app developers to ease up the workflow. You can automate repetitive tasks so that your team can focus on more critical activities that require manual handling. Using the right automation software, you can easily determine bugs as well as gather crucial intelligence from users. This allows you to make improvements in your product using accurate data that is based on customer behaviors.

4. Limit the platforms involved in the production

Using various platforms simultaneously may somehow improve the quality and usability of your app, but it isn't always practical. Building your app for too many platforms can actually increase the time it takes to build the app. Other than that, it also wastes time since one platform may override or bypass the work of another.

As much as possible, you may want to limit the number of platforms in the production process. Focus on one and after that, you can train your focus on the other.
