One in Five Mobile Applications Too Difficult to Use finds Survey

According to a new report, mobile development projects are very often affected by huge budgets as well as overrunning of deadlines and finally, when they are done, one out of every five new apps are considered "too difficult to use" by those businesses who commission the projects.

Research outfit Vanson Bourne conducted a survey on behalf of Antenna Software, a mobile solutions firm. The survey was conducted on IT and business leaders based in the US and UK and they found that investment on mobile projects will see huge rise in coming 18 months. In fact, one third of companies are set to reveal four or more than four mobile projects within a period of 12 to 18 months.

According to the survey, 21 per cent of the respondents found that the application, at the end of the development efforts, was too difficult to use. 45 per cent of the respondents were not too happy with the speed at which the mobile projects land in the market while 42 per cent were dissatisfied with the final costs.

An average business will be investing £590,000 on their mobile projects over next 18 months, which is more than double the amount spent on an average which is £269,000 till now, according to this survey.

This survey has been done before launching of AMPChroma which is Antenna Software's cloud based development and deployment platform for mobile.
