Without knowing your customers, how will you solve their pain points?


If you have created a mobile app without proper research about the market and customer’s expectations, then definitely the developed app will experience poor user retention.

Just developing the app and launching the same, is the biggest mistake ever.


If your enterprise app isn’t tested properly, then chances will be there that your app comprises of bugs which will definitely hamper the user experience. This can cause an app crashing.
