If you let the application be developed and introduced via mount only, you may lose the change to meet more potential customers. 

No. 8: Device Performance

What is the size of your app comparing with the features, benefits that it brings to end-users? If you download a big size app which is not much use for you, you may delete it when your storage is full or you even don’t download it. 

Additionally, after the news of some old iPhone versions works very slow because of updating and low battery performance, users may pay more attention to checking application information before downloading it. Therefore, making sure you fully test the app before launching it in all kinds of devices and your application should work smoothly on these devices. 

Your app may be frequently updated to ensure your product fit well with the market, but if you can launch the app without these above issues, your application and your business will be on the way of success soon.
