Top 4 iOS Application Development Myths

No matter what your goal is – be it connecting with like-minded tech people just like you all over the globe, or you want to reach out to potential and existing customers, if you are looking at getting instant attention, brand recall purposes or you are just looking at promoting your business you can do all of the above and so much more by developing a mobile application as it’s an absolute must to have an online presence.

And what could be better than developing an iOS application for quicker results and to reach out to a larger audience thus multiplying your sales on a higher level.

Your brand new iPhone application can be advertised in a lot of innovative ways by your marketing department, but minus all the right tactics, design and features the app sadly possesses very narrow chances of succeeding. Every iPhone application development company and iOS developer isn’t the same and there’s a wide variety of mobile application development companies to choose from. When it comes to iOS development, there are many misconceptions and myths that are prevailing in the app market as users and developers have many preconceived notions regarding the same. So before you jump into developing your next app, here are the most popular myths:

1)   iOS development is easy:

It’s not what it looks like and is really not the easiest task anyone can start off with. An average college student can’t work without any help. And also, before starting iOS app development you must possess a Mac which is around $1000 and also a paid Apple Developer program which is $99. And this goes without saying, but you will also need an iPhone and iPad device since an iPhone simulator is not sufficient for development and testing purposes.

2)   Jailbreaking:

Another common myth that floats around iPhone application development is that most of the tasks cannot be implemented minus jailbreaking! For example finding out if some other particular app is installed, recording the screen of other apps, or even locking your home button! Yes we agree according to our experience that some tasks may seem impossible due to Apple’s stringent policy but before you jump to any conclusions, it’s better to find a documentary confirmation for the same.

3)   The big Hit!

You are mistaken if you think that making a big hit at the App Store is purely a matter of luck. In fact it’s not – of course it depends on various factors such as app use, target audience, productivity,  UX design etc but if you go through a list of the top trending applications on the App Store, you will see that they are mostly the apps from well-known developers, remakes of older versions of the same app or something on the similar lines.

4)   C to Objective-C

Another popular myth lacing iOS app development is that if developers aren’t aware of C language, it simply means they will never be able to learn Objective-C. This is wrong as it depends upon the iOS developer as to how capable they are to grasp the language and implement it within the development process.
Thus from the above, these are the most popular myths that every iOS app developer faces before he starts with the mobile app development process.
