With the tremendous growth that iOS has shown over the past years, every mobile app developer want to venture in the field of mobile app development for iOS. App Development for iOS has been exciting and challenging aspect for developers and defines the ultimate thing that could be done with iOS. iOS developers have powerful tools like iOS SDK, Xcode, Xcode IDE, Instruments and iOS Simulator, which they use for the development of creative and innovative Mobile Apps for iOS. The competitive iOS development environment is resulting the development of the most innovative iOS applications.
When we speak about iOS devices, from app development perspective – it can be divided into two – iPhone and iPad. Through this article we would help the aspiring developers take key notes on how to develop mobile app for iOS.
The first point that developers have to check is the screen. If the screen is retina ready screen with its high resolution, UIs have to be 100% perfect or else the issues with UIs will be visible to end users. This should be really taken care at the commencement of mobile app development.
The second point to take care of is the HIG or Human Interface Guideline. The human interface guideline is supplied by Apple Inc and would facilitate the mobile developers in designing the standard keyboard layout, along with the date picker and the status bar. An iPhone Application Developer must keep in mind that the three cardinal vision of Apple are deference, clarity and depth.
The third point would include having a detailed knowledge about the top apps in iTunes and knowledge about Apple’s UI guidelines. When an iPhone Application Developer or an iPad Application Developer wants to design a catching user interface for the iOS, it is essential to know about the top apps in iTunes along with the ability to comprehend Apple’s UI guidelines. Adding your own aesthetic to the Apple’s UI guidelines would help in producing an excellent result. Your iOS App for the iPhone or iPad would be a hit, when it contains the elements of being clear, simple, focused and easy to navigate. One more factor that has to be taken care of while the process of Mobile App Development is the fact that the app should keep itself within the platform convention of Apple.
The fourth and a very important point are the striking icons that are the inevitable part of a well designed iOS App. When we look at the kind of mobile app developed by the iPhone app developers in India and in the other parts of the world, a common fact that would capture your thought is that these iPhone app developers have been involved in building a special eye-catching and special shape for the icons. These eye-catching and special icons are centered over a small color palette. It is always recommended to avoid usage of text for the icon, but the icon should be a striking indicator of the mobile app. Give an equal importance to icon designing, as it plays a critical role during the process of app downloading to the mobile device.
Apple operating system is regarded as a treasure house, which has immense opportunity for the mobile app developers who are imaginative and posses the intelligence for designing of the iOS Apps. Accept the challenge and end up in designing one of the greatest iOS app.
Wearable Technology and Internet of Things
With the advent of Apple watch and Google glass, wearables have created a great impact in innovative app development initiatives. In 2016, It has infact resulted in the growth of wearable technologies and internet of things (IoT) and gain popularity like never before. App developers should upgrade themselves to follow these latest trends and develop mobile applications for wearables and IoT devices.
