But sometimes the case will get worse when the end user will start hate your application. Here are some of the reasons why user will start to hate your mobile application.

5. Lower battery backup

The most important reason behind un-installation of your mobile application by users is large battery usage. There are instances when the application is a perfect utility for the customer but due to over usage of battery while utilizing the app, the result becomes negative.


6. Time consuming applications

7. Calibration problem with apps

Another important factor identified while using most of the application is the screen-rotation as well as calibration issue. These hamper the concentration the user playing game or watching videos. These can easily be resolved by the mobile application developers and give perfect results to user.


8. Notification on every event

There are frequent cases while using an application where user gets notifications and messages from the application itself or from other pop-ups. In case of such applications, if the user is busy with important activity in the midst of the application, it can create complex problems.


These are some of the important factors which can cause the user to hate your mobile applications and give unnecessary bad reviews for your app.
