Failure is a necessary evil in app development. You need to know what holes your app has in order to fill them. Some even look at failure as a good thing, since it ultimately leads to the improvement of your app. In this blog we'll explain the function of failure and how you can use it to your advantage. 

If you haven't encountered any problems in your app development, you can be pretty sure that something is wrong. The most likely problem is that you haven't tested your app sufficiently. 

If this is the case, then you won't notice the flaws of your app until it's released. And even worse, it won't be you that's finding the flaws -- it'll be your users. 

Failure is something you're likely to encounter several times during app development. According to a recent Forbes article, the more often you fail, the better: 

"Never forget the goals of your mobile application development. How big do you want to build? How often are you willing to “fail” in order to get the best possible knowledge to your builders? There’s no right answer. But we suggest that you fail often, fast, and hard, and build as big as you can."

Failure is just fine as long as you have the right mindset. You need to understand that it's necessary for app development and will help you improve your app. 

If you outsource app development, on the other hand, then you won't have to worry about failure. You can be sure that several things went wrong during app development, but you just weren't informed of the specific details. Either way, these problems and issues were resolved, which ultimately lead to the improvement of your app. In the end, that's the most important thing.

We spend a lot of time explaining which elements of website design you should add. In this blog, we'll talk about some of the things that you should avoid. 

The guiding principle here is that you should exclude anything that takes away from your content. The most important thing is that your website informs and engages users. You should stay away from anything that might distract them. 

Most businesses fall into this trap by trying to do too much. With website design, less is often more, so you should always think twice about adding two elements that overlap.  

A recent Forbes article has a list of some of these mistakes:

  • Busy or complex layouts
  • Pop-up advertisements and flamboyant ads
  • Small print that’s hard to read
  • Boring web design/lack of color
  • Slow website intros and load times

Some of these mistakes go with each other. For example, businesses usually make their website layouts too complex by adding advertisements. In addition to taking away from your user experience, these also slow your website down. 

Another mistake we'll throw into the mix is focusing too much on desktops. The trend of "mobile-friendly" websites has now officially evolved to be "mobile-first." When you design your website, you should make mobile devices a priority. 

The reasoning for this is twofold. The most important one is that mobile devices are now more popular than ever, and that trend isn't expected to die out any time soon. 

Moreover, it's easier to design sites for mobile devices and scale them up for desktops. This is called progressive enhancement, and it's a key feature behind responsive websites. 

At the end of the day, your website design should engage your users so they'll read your content. If you think something might distract users, then it's best just to discard it.
