User Feedback

Great apps provide user feedback. Mobile apps should be able to ask the user to rate or comment on features and functions as well as track user behavior to provide insight into ways the app is used and can be improved. In this way, businesses can constantly improve their apps to deliver the greatest value.

The amount of effort being put into developing mobile apps is staggering. When designed correctly, mobile apps become competitive weapons that can give a business the upper hand in the battle for market share. But there's an obvious problem with the majority of apps: They're not very good. They might do the job, but they're missing key features that distinguish a truly effective and addictive app with a great user experience from a just "okay" app. If your app is missing any of these features, you need to rethink how and why you're designing and building for mobile.

In this slideshow, Alpha Software describes the seven features that all truly great apps share in common.
