In this blog, we’ll go deeper into why it’s so important for applications to be as data efficient as possible, and look at the techniques Reappt uses to achieve these goals. We’ll then show you how easy it is to add these data saving features to your applications.
Why Should Apps Be Data Efficient?
With applications consuming and generating more data than ever before, users have become frustrated when handling this data load leads to performance and usability problems.
However, more often than not, your app isn’t the cause of these performance problems – the network is. With increasing data demands, and the explosion of connected devices and mobile users networks are struggling to cope. Developers need to embrace technologies and tools that can work with unreliable networks.
Competitive edge can be won or lost over app performance and engineering your app to be as data efficient as possible ensures the network can’t slow you down.
