It is not just about delivering the multi facilitating mobile applications to end users by incorporating bundles of features in it. But the question that each and every user faces before downloading the app is the amount of security that is present with data and other utilities of mobile. The biggest challenge nowadays faced by the mobile application developers especially Android developers is the security issues that bundle out with the app. Although most of the app store rely on publisher of the app to thoroughly test the system bug free and secured, they also contribute in checking out the defects in mobile app before launching.
At each and every phase of development there is constant need to check out the app security. The dimensions of app security are not only limited to the end user perspective but also during the documentation and other parts of application. On the other it is believed that it is the responsibility of developers to embrace of the changes and amalgamation that are required in during development part to ensure security of the app. Here are some of the challenges that developers face during mobile app development to keep app security intact.
Understand App Making Policies
With each of the operating system for which you prefer to develop an app, there are norms to be followed. These policies are to be rigidly undertaken in order to make the app launching successful on app store. The terms and conditions may be different for various operating systems according to liberties they provide to developers for making app utility higher. Security issues for codes and APIs are often faced by the mobile app developers in order to make application secure and safe keeping monopoly of code in the market. Most developers face the problem of exhibited feature inclusion in the app against the security policies of respective operating systems.
App Migration And Platform Compatibility
This is another important challenge that is faced by most of the developer while making app realize on all the platforms and face the challenge of implying overall compatibility. Some apps are developed on multiple platforms at the same time while some prefer to make a concrete architecture for a predefined platform in the primary phase and then go for further development on other platforms as well. Also addition of add-on features or upgrades in the applications needs to be committed after proper testing to avoid issues regarding any fluctuations in app working. On multiple platforms, there is also constant tracking of app records on server related to previous usages of app; this needs to be resolved by the developer in order to flush the things from server or storage at regular instance.
Monetary Security For Paid Apps
Making paid applications is not an easy task for mobile apps development companies as they require some intense features in it to let the people pay for it. Also considering the fact that there is fixed amount associated with app installation which will be taken care by respective app store authority, it needs to be seen that the application is enabled with that security to give pay worth for it. These types of security issues can also become a hindrance in the later stages of mobile app development and sign-off.
These challenges needs to be overcome as soon as possible in design phase only to avoid any security related issues that come afterwards during later stages of mobile application development. There should be constant check or revision on development activities in order to get best results for your app on App store.
