How Would Your Business be Benefited from a Mobile App?



Mobiles are a fantastic way of technological expression in our times, and mobile applications are definitely one of the biggest reasons behind this. So, the answer to the question - whether mobile applications would benefit their respective businesses - the answer is absolutely yes. 

But, that’s the short answer.

Here’s the longer version:

Visibility Increases

First of all, an app will make your visibility skyrocket! We know it extremely well that an average person spends quite a great amount of time every day on smartphone, especially internet services - we know this without the help of any statistics. But, even if statistics were to be believed, then the average time spent on mobile Internet services was estimated to be 185 minutes, that is a bit more than 3 hours a day. While mobile app might not take up all that time, it sure occupies a lot. A major reason for that is an app actually helps a user save time by not having to log in all the details every time they open the app. Also, while looking to open some other app, or do some other task, the user may scroll and scan, coming across your app several times a day. So, take advantage of the visibility that a mobile application provides by designing one.

It Acts as a Direct Marketing Channel
A mobile app is such a compact thing, when you see it - and it amazingly carries so much of information in it. Whether it’s prices, user accounts, notifications, home feed, or just any general information - all of it, you can easily find in a mobile app. And it creates an easy medium of direct two-way communication that you can have with your end user. You can easily gather feedbacks, as well as remind them of any updates or upgrades.

Helps You Build Your Brand
More than a website, a mobile app clicks more with the audience, making the brand feel more like their own. With a mobile app, users feel more involved, they prefer it more rather than having to logging in on a website. Think of your app as a billboard. Like people crossing by in their cars, or waiting at traffic signals, see various ads staring in their faces, your users will have look at your app, almost every day - if not to use it, then at least by coming across it while scrolling through the mobile for something else. And that is how you make people recognize your brand. 

Customer Engagement gets Improved
This is a great way to make our customers engage with you. If it’s a restaurant that you own, then people can directly reserve their tables from your app. If it’s an app related to cab-service, then people can book their taxi from the app. If it’s a product you’re selling, then you can sell from our app. Even when it comes to settling customers’ grievances, you can include a direct message feature on your app, and make your end users’ life even simpler.

The great thing as a developer and a designer is that, you have this blank slate in the form of a mobile app with you, that you can create the way you want to; you don’t have to think twice about whether people will like the concept of having an app in the first place, because they absolutely will. The only thing to think about is how to make that app of yours stand out in the crowd of apps.

      Hey, so i've created a disk in unity (2D mobile) that will be shot forward if you drag it back and the further you drag it from the start point the more force will be applied to the impulse similar to the 8ball pool drag to shoot mechanic on miniclip. However, when I applied a script that allows the main camera to follow the ball it broke the mechanic since the balls position is calculated through the camera in world space. So I created a bool that locks the camera in place until the ball is released so the calculation would happen before the camera starts to move. This works however the ball now rubber bands back and forwards close to the start position.
      If anything needs more explaining then i'd be glad to do so. I've only been coding for about a week so you'll have to bare with me. Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.
      Here's What happens:
      (screencap gif of the game viewer)
      Here is the shoot script:
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class Shoot : MonoBehaviour { [SerializeField] GameObject Disc; [SerializeField] float multiplier; Vector3 initPos; private Rigidbody2D rb; public static bool ballIsReleased = false; bool recordingDistanceDragged = false; private void Start() { rb = gameObject.GetComponent<Rigidbody2D>(); initPos = transform.position; } void OnMouseDrag() { recordingDistanceDragged = true; if(recordingDistanceDragged == true) { transform.position = Camera.main.ScreenToWorldPoint(new Vector3(Input.mousePosition.x, Input.mousePosition.y, 10)); } else { transform.position = initPos; } } void OnMouseUp() { ballIsReleased = true; } private void FixedUpdate() { if(ballIsReleased == true) { rb.AddForce((initPos - transform.position) * multiplier, ForceMode2D.Impulse); Debug.Log("ball is released"); recordingDistanceDragged = false; } else { ballIsReleased = false; } } }  
      Here is the camera follow script:
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class CameraFollow : MonoBehaviour { private Vector2 velocity; public float smoothTimeY; public float smoothTimeX; public GameObject player; private void Start() { player = GameObject.FindGameObjectWithTag("Player"); } private void FixedUpdate() { if (Shoot.ballIsReleased == true) { Debug.Log("camera can move"); float posX = Mathf.SmoothDamp(transform.position.x, player.transform.position.x, ref velocity.x, smoothTimeX); float posY = Mathf.SmoothDamp(transform.position.y, player.transform.position.y, ref velocity.y, smoothTimeY); transform.position = new Vector3(posX, posY, transform.position.z); } } }
