Follow those guidelines, and it’s more likely than not that your app will succeed given the right infrastructure and strategy. But what about the opposite end of the spectrum: what are some signs your shiny new app might fail?

Nitesh Mishra of IndiaNIC tackles that question for TG Daily in his article, “Eight Reasons Why Users Reject Your Mobile App.” His list is a good one to keep in mind for anyone thinking about developing a mobile app:

This list, of course, is not exhaustive. It is, however, quite helpful to keep top-of-mind as you strategise and ultimately develop your company’s suite of mobile applications. (This list applies both for software you develop and for apps curated within your enterprise app store.)

Will your new enterprise app definitely fail if you meet a few of the criteria on this list? Certainly not. But, thinking back to our blog post about what employees want, it’s simple: employees want apps that make them better at their jobs, not apps that raise new problems and make life more difficult.

Prioritise user experience, and you’re in a good place to get your feet off the ground with your enterprise mobility program. Chase the next shiny object and throw an app together just for the sake of having one, though, and chances are your new enterprise app will fail.
