Mobile apps optimization or optimizing mobile apps is called to be the crucial piece of the mobile app marketing. After developing any mobile application, the next question of every developer or general user is only one, that is how to increase the visibility of app on the relevant app store and get more, and more installs.
The question arises why to optimize mobile apps? The answer is simple because it is not every app that gets high ranking and greater visibility.
Here are seven tips that may help minimize latency and service interruption for end users.
- Cache some information in the browser to speed up page load times on the client side (the efficacy of this approach will vary from one browser to the next but has improved as a whole over the past few years).
- Leverage cloud-based mobile delivery to serve up mobile content from servers and data centers that are geographically close to ending users (be sure to choose an option that takes both traffic load and location into account).
- Use an HTTP persistent connection to reuse a TCP connection for multiple requests and responses (set keep-alive sessions to a short time period such as 5 minutes and only use them when necessary to avoid excessive radioactivity).
- Use push delivery and notifications instead of polling whenever possible. Aggregate inbound and outbound requests into as few networks call as possible (every transfer comes at a cost in terms of radio use and battery life).
- Have the app provide instant feedback of some kind via the user interface even if the application is still waiting for a response in the background. Simply acknowledging that an action has been initiated is often all that is necessary to make users feel that an app is fast.
- Remember that Wi-Fi has very different parameters than a mobile network. For streaming applications, consider prompting the user to switch over to an available Wi-Fi network for a better experience.
