What’s the best way to convince new users to stay with you app? Make a great first impression. According to various studies, as much as 70% of users would delete the app if they get a bad first impression. The most common reasons for that are poor app performance, bad UI design, and users not able to figure out how to use the app.
Even if your app is well designed and has all the right features, poor performance can kill it. So, let’s see how you can monitor and improve your app’s performance to offer better UX.
See that actual performance matches your tests
So you released your app after all the tough development and QA work and you’re satisfied with the result. But sometimes apps perform differently in your tests and the real world. That’s why you should still keep testing your app as an ordinary user after its release to see if it matches the tests. And if you’re releasing a new version of a popular app, make sure that the performance is consistent and users can get support easily if they need it.
Monitor your app to keep things under control
Consistently monitoring your app’s performance is key to discovering performance issues at an early stage, so that you can fix them as soon as possible. Even if your app performs well, there are lots of things that can change in a blink of an eye. For example, new OS releases often result in crashes and freeze-ups that never used to happen before. So, invest in solid app performance monitoring tools and keep a close eye on things.
Invest in network performance
Everybody hates a slow app. Even if it doesn’t crash, nobody would keep using an app that keeps showing the little “Please wait” wheel. One of the ways to avoid a slow app is to invest into network performance and choose a solid Cloud provider. This will help you avoid network performance issues and prevent uninstalls.
