The demand for iOS applications has seen a remarkable increase in the recent few years. Luckily, there is no scarcity of supply. Companies and individuals involved in the iOS mobile application field are making their best effort to cope with the requirements of the market, the submissions of apps has increased exponentially from 32 apps a day in 2008 to 1816 apps a day in 2015. However, the app rejection rate in the App Store is quite high. Only half of the submitted apps get approval by its review team. The strict guidelines of the App Store hit the substandard or low-quality apps in the interest of the users.
Henceforth, an Iphone application development company needs to advance its practices and deliver quality applications to let its users derive the most from the technology, with the least effort. Decked are some guidance to IPhone app developers regarding what works and what not.
Troubleshoot Bugs and Crashes
The developers and the testing teams are responsible for ensuring that the standard practices are following in the IPhone mobile application development and the app is free from all kinds of bugs and crashes. The user must have a control on the app, right from the installation and uninstallation to its usage, update and upgrade. The AppStore does not approve non-public APIs in an app build; nor does it allows submission of a trial, demo, or test version.
Fix Broken Links
Don’t make your app a house to broken links. Even if your app makes way through the tests, it won’t be able to last longer in the store as consumers will flood the store with negative reviews forcing the store to remove it.
Provide Proper Documentation
Let the user and the App Store know what your application is about. Provide proper information regarding the tools applied, the app usage, vendor contact, support, and the other vital information while making your way to the App Store.
Give the Right Picture
Add a high-quality and easy to understand description and screenshots to make your target audience understand the app and its functionality. While doing so, make sure you portray the right picture of your product.
Facilitate an Easy User-Interface
Don’t wait for the user to analyze your app and tell your mistake, give them the perfect UI so they can interact with the app and find the right information and services.
Advertising the application is fine but not at the cost of the user experience. Use the right size and type of container for the ad content to be placed so that the actual purpose of the app doesn’t get diluted.
Abstain from serving inappropriate content
App Store has zero tolerance against inappropriate app content, including the content that depicts violence, a sense of hatred or communal disparity, sexually abusive content, etc. App Store is also particular about the user’s privacy. It declines apps asking for the user’s personal information, such as date of birth and email address. However, apps meant for children fall under the exceptions, they may ask for the user’s date of birth to comply with laws governing the privacy of the children.
Don’t trick users by divulging their location
Apps that don’t ask for the user’s permission before collecting, transmitting or using location data face rejection. Using the location-based APIs for autonomous or automatic control of vehicles, aircraft, or other devices is also a violation of its terms.
Spamming with the App Store is an offense. An IPhone mobile application development company must not upload multiple versions of an app on the store. Such apps not only suffer rejections but may also lead to the termination of the developer’s account from the IPhone development program.
