6 Reasons Why Users Uninstall Mobile Apps

6 Reasons Why Users Uninstall Mobile Apps

If you are in the mobile app development industry, you are probably aware by now that most users uninstalling their apps a few minutes after installing them. The average smartphone user on the two major platforms, Android and iOS keeps 10% of installed applications, deleting the rest shortly after they are downloaded. You will not like the situation whereby you will launch an app that will be uninstalled within a few minutes. So, what causes users or consumers to uninstall or delete apps that they spend valuable time installing on mobile phones? The following are some of the reasons mobile phone users uninstall apps from their smartphones.

Large size. When an app takes too much space than a user has available, the only solution is to uninstall the app and opt for one that takes less space. Because of this most mobile app developers try their best to make sure their app does not take up too much space. Other developers, mostly game developers, try to trick users into downloading a small-sized app that requires extra downloads once you open the app. This can be useful for the initial installation but it does not guarantee that the user will continue to download the extra files. Users might even get angry when they realize they have been tricked leading them to delete the app from the device.  Makes sure your mobile app is small in total file size while still having the best user experience.

Bad registration experience. No one wants to waste their time on a complicated registration process. This is one of the mistakes most mobile app developers do without knowing that it will affect them one way or the other. Bad registration experience is something that must be avoided at all costs if you want users to continue using your app. Some of the examples in registration process that triggers users to uninstall an app include;

  • Asking too much information. The world is growing and people are realizing that they need to maintain certain levels of privacy. When an app asks for too much information, it clearly shows that they want to invade the privacy of the user. A user seeing this attempt will uninstall the app before they try going any further. 
  • Compulsory social login. Social media has become a big part of the mobile app development industry. Many social media platforms are being integrated into other apps to allow users to easily sign-up or sign-in to an app. Users like this idea but immediately you force users to use the social-login when they will uninstall the app. The best thing to do is to provide the social login as a secondary login option. Custom mobile app development by the pros at 5280 Software LLC can help you make sure you have these optimal registration options.

Inefficient App Monetization Strategy. Most mobile apps on the various app stores like Google Play Store and the Apple App Store have a goal of making money. The various platforms are aware of this, so app developers have been given the opportunity to make money using app monetization strategies. Examples of these strategies are in-app ads, in-app purchases, and subscription services. The only problem with this is that many developers overdo some of the strategies which can be agitating to the user. For example, some mobile apps use too many in-app ads which leads to a bad user experience. This usually ends with the user uninstalling the app because they cannot enjoy the functionalities of the app.

Battery-consuming apps.  This problem is mostly associated with mobile games. Most games cause excessive battery drain, mainly because of how demanding the game is. Some apps also consume excess battery when they are run in the background. In the case of video games, if your game is interesting and fun to play but it demands the use of excess battery your app will be uninstalled. If your app also causes overheating in mobile phones, it might also lead users to delete the app. Many users prefer to delete or uninstall a game that uses excess battery because they don’t want to spoil their phones. App development companies that have a proven track record of successful custom app development can make sure your app is efficient with battery use.

Unnecessary notifications. Notifications are one of the best ways mobile app developers can communicate and stay in touch with their users. The mobile app evolution has led to the increase in notifications.  But some apps overdo this by sending unnecessary notifications which tends to be annoying. The most annoying part will be if the app does not even provide an option to stop notifications. If users realize they cannot stop an app from sending unnecessary notifications, the only solution is to delete the app.  Custom mobile app development by 5280 Software LLC can help you achieve the proper number of notifications in you app.

Addictive app. When an app is addictive, it is good for developers but bad for users. Users being addicted to an app means that they are constantly using the app without doing anything else. There is nothing wrong with having an addictive app, but users think otherwise. Users will delete an app immediately they realize they are addicted to prevent further excess time consumption.  Proper smartphone app development services will help you find the balance between an app that is engaging and an app that is too addictive.

These are some of the reasons why users uninstall or delete mobile apps from their phones. There are other reasons but all is dependent on how developers serve their users.
