It is common knowledge that technology is constantly evolving. App development companies have upped the ante in android app development. In May 2016 at the Google’s I/O, it was disclosed that Android Instant apps
have found their way back into the app world as the company commenced their testing with Buzzfeed, Viki, Periscope and Wish applications.
Around the world, Android Instant Apps has captured the attention of many people particularly as it claims to make better prospects available for Android app developers as well as heighten the experience of end users.
The Android Instant App like any other tech trend requires additional work from the developer which will be needed in accessing unique device identifiers like Mac Address, IMSI, and IMEI push notifications and background services.
It is only after streaming the app to a device that users can begin to enjoy the benefit of modularizing the application.
Like other technological innovations, the primary objective of the app is to provide ease to users. But the question is: How well will the app be able to accomplish this objective? Consider the following facts.
1. Easy to Access
Users can access the instant apps through links. When you click on the link, you will simply be taken to a mobile web space where you can have access to the features of the app. No doubt, this will enhance your experience especially as you can bypass the entire course of searching and installing the mobile application.
2. Manage space
The Android Instant Apps will allow users to save enough space on their smartphone. They can delete unimportant app downloads just to find the right application. It is expected, however, that enterprises and developers will not only create applications that will enhance user experience
but also utilize less space without altering the features.
3. Enjoy more creativity
The developers are now aware that users possess the right to judge the app before installation. Hence, they aim at building creative applications. Developers are expected to come up with a ‘lite’ version of applications that offers better user experience and efficient service.
4. Confirm Before Using
Instead of installing the app first to find out its usability, users now have the freedom to check out the features of the app before installing for future use. If you are satisfied with the features, you can download the app. This is of great benefit to users because it gives them the power to choose the application that suits their needs. On the other hand, the app developers benefit from a stable retention rate. This is so because the application will only be downloaded by those who are satisfied with its features and consequently the chances of ditching the application will diminish.
5. Easy to share
With the help of a link, the Instant app allows users to share applications with others. Your friends do not have to surf through a massive list just to find a particular app. They are also not required to install another app to share an app. The instant app makes application sharing very easy.
6. Conserve Time While Searching
To download a mobile app
, users often have to go through a time-consuming searching process. But with Instant apps, all you need to do is Google the application, and you will quickly spot it under the app section. Alternatively, you can just click on the app link and open in the app store or browser.
