Developing a mobile app successfully is much more than simply coding the app and further, submitting it to the respective mobile app store. A developer needs to consider a broad array of vital aspects for developing an app that can ideally satisfy the requirements of the users.
With the proliferation of the smart devices, the way we use technology and complete a wide array of day to day tasks have been completely changed. People have started relying more on their mobile phones and tablets, and use them to access internet, check their emails, connect with people on social media, shopping, paying utility bills, completing a lot of professional tasks and much more.
How smartphones and tablets are impacting our lives?
Today, the world has not only shrunken but has become more technology driven. Right from the time you wake up till the time you sleep, you use your smart phone multiple times. Whether it is setting an alarm for the morning, replying an official email, purchasing a pair of shoes or transacting cash through internet banking, we perform all the tasks from our mobile. As a result, the mobile are slowly replacing the alarm clocks, off-line brick & mortar stores and eliminating the need to physically walk into a bank in order to get the tasks done.
With such reliance on the smart phones and tablets, the mobile app developers have got a plethora of opportunities to develop innovative apps which can ease some day to day tasks or engage the users. While some mobile developers are exceptionally successful in developing incredible apps delivering measurable results and generating colossal revenue, many others fail at developing engrossing apps. This post will share the vital resources which the mobile app developers can leverage in order to develop successful and captivating mobile apps.
Mobile App developer resources which you should know about

After releasing the app, if you have started getting some negative feedback about a few of the app features, then Switch can help in letting you fix the bug while the users are using it. With the help of “switch”, you can turn off the particular feature which is creating problems. Once the issue is fixed, you can turn the feature on again.
Content – For remote update of App Content
This is an incredible resource which lets you change some content or image in the app without making any change in the code, you can use “Content”. Basically, it is like the “WordPress” for your mobile app. Any changes made to the content are updated instantly in the app.
Pop – Paper App Prototyping
