Mastering mobile web development in very interesting topic to study and learn. Today we are discussion in very generic way. We are not talking about any particular platform. Mobile development involves many terminologies like responsiveness, debugging tools, memory management, validations for input data, testing tools, simulator vs emulator etc. In further more discussion we are looking into following terminologies in depth.
1. Responsiveness with best user experience
So responsiveness is the main factor when user is accessing your mobile app. Responsive means the application should be designed in such a way that it can better utilize the screen size of any device.For providing better user experience, it is necessary to introduce user about usage of application through walkthrough and guidelines.
2. Memory management
As responsiveness and UI is important for front end, memory management is also important while developing code. There should not be any memory leaks and orphan objects in memory. Also make use of optional avoids null pointer exceptions.
3. API and database designs
Backend plays an important role while developing web based mobile apps. API is an intermediate layer between mobile application and actual database. Development of API with security and proper documentation is indirectly supports writing optimized code for mobile application with reusability.
4. Testing and debugging tools
While developing apps, it is necessary to check for bugs and flow of an app. Thus using recommended IDE’s for writing code eliminates errors in code writing as it provides latest api’s. And using simulators or emulators for testing runtime behavior will be the most preferred option before directly install and run on actual device.
5. Form fields and other data validations
To validate input data using regular expression is the great approach. With validations, it is confirmed that user has entered correct data.
