Well-Known Member
When you are developing or building anything you need a robust foundation. This is exactly applicable if planning to develop mobile apps well. With the times changing, the business enterprises are concentrating more on building the apps to reach out the target users This is making the competition severer with several players entering into the arena.

Defining the Mobile App Architecture

Mobile app architecture can be defined as the set of diverse approaches, techniques and processes carried out to successfully build a comprehensively structured mobile app according to the precise needs of the business enterprise.

While developing the mobile app architecture, you also have to take into account the programming of the wireless devices such as the Smartphone or the tablet etc.
Factors to Consider While Developing Mobile App Architecture
It is essential for any app developer in the mobile app development company to be familiar with the critical factors that are taken into consideration before delving into the steps of mobile app architecture.

  1. Deciding the Device Types
Nowadays we have numbers of smartphones that belong to a different category. The type of the device can be categorized largely based on the operating system they run on. For example, Android smartphones are somewhat different from the iOS Apple phones.
In addition, the devices can also be classified into these important types such as the size of the screen, the size of memory, choice of the framework, CPU features, screen resolution, and storage capacity. The choice of the device becomes essential during the app architecture development due to the software and hardware requisites.

  1. Choosing the Appropriate Navigation Type
The app navigation is one of the key factors that define the success of the mobile app. It includes both the client side as well as the server side. Thus, the customer needs and importance should top the list while selecting the type of navigation for the app.

It is tremendously essential to take into account the bandwidth situation or think about the local internet network of the demographic area where you are targeting the audience. Often the slowness of the internet speed frustrates the users and he churns out of the app.

There are times when there is no internet connectivity or very limited net access. To counter such situations, you have to consider the most awful possible internet network when developing the app architecture.

You need to develop your caching, data access mechanism, and state management as the fact internet speed is very limited. Besides also think about the power consumption and speed when working with the software protocols and hardware.

  1. Playing with the User Interface Designs
This is one area where you get an opportunity to showcase your creativity and thus user interface gains much importance in the app architecture design. But don’t forget the thumb rule; which is simply is the best medicine for designing User Interface. Make it highly interactive and intuitive.
