Top mobile app development companies report: iOS 11

Operating systems are a big part of mobile app development. The main function of the OS is managing the tasks and performance of a mobile device. iOS and Android OS provide a basis for all the apps, big and small, to run on.

Unfortunately every OS can have its issues, that’s why companies like Apple continuously upgrade their digital operating system. They can also use the OS updates as an opportunity to deal with any major glitches, and provide users and mobile app development companies alike with the upgrades they crave.

Why does the appeal of some apps quickly fade away?

Why does the appeal of some apps quickly fades away?

Did you know that on average a mobile app loses 75% of its users within the first day of its installation? In addition to this, most applications have a shelf life of no more than a week.

Scrolling through a seemingly endless list of mobile apps, then entering each app to uninstall it, only to return to the main list to continue to the hunt for wayward apps seems like a daunting task, and for many it is. It takes time, patience and attention, all the things that users these days seem to possess very little of.
