How to improve Android app performance
There are millions of android apps are available over there. Out of that ton of apps, making a unique one is quite difficult and after creating some uniqueness we have to maintain the app’s popularity by providing the best updates along with the best performance of our app. So, today we’re gonna have some discussion on how to improve android app performance by implementing some factors listed below.
- Reduce app size
- Optimize Network request
- Optimize images and videos
- Optimize screen size
- Optimize offline model
- Improve memory usage
- Scale down the app launch time
- Hit a smooth frame rate
- Work efficiently with threads
- Implement caching
Let’s take a detailed look.
- Reduce app size:-
Mobile phones are less powerful GPUs(Graphics processing units). People mostly avoid downloading huge apps. Reducing app size is beneficial in the initial stage to get more downloads. After that, we can give more modifications by giving updates within the app. Some productive ways are there to reduce our app size using Android app bundles and an Android size analyzer.
- Optimize Network request:-
Optimization of network requests can improve overall productivity by providing faster network speed. Also, it increases reliability and can prevent data mismanagement in case of physical hardware damage or in a cyberattack. This all will boost the better user experience in the end.
- Optimize images and videos:-
Optimization of images and videos should be done the way that buffering will take minimum time to load the data. Which increases the rate of better UX for our website resulting in we can attract more audience. Select appropriate file extensions and quality of files which can be suitable for our site along with the fast loading speed to make an improvement in one of the phases of android application performance.
- Optimize screen size:-
Make optimization in screen size the way it fits in all types of android devices easily to make UX even better. Better screen arrangement is necessary to increase the app performance.
- Optimize the offline model:-
The optimized offline model provides maximum data as possible to the user on the application if there is a poor connection or in offline mode. To enhance overall UX performance we can use Data Synchronization, Sensitive Data Management and Manage Shared Data in the optimization of the offline model section for any android application.
- Improve memory usage:-
RAM is provided in android by keeping in mind the multitasking purpose of users. But sometimes restrictions and other ap activity in the background put a heavy load on RAM. To make this work perfectly we have to avoid memory or activity leaks to improve memory usage.
- Scale down the app launch time:-
As per Google, 70% of mobile app users renounce an app if it takes a long time to load. Moreover, the top 25 apps on the Play Store take around 800 ms to 4.5s to launch. But in most cases. 4.5s is too much for users. Application launching time should be minimum to make the user experience better in opening the app. The tool called “Apteligent” is used to monitor and improve app launch time. Manage app launch time the way that your device acts differently on warm and cold start.
- Hit a smooth frame rate:-
Maintaining a 60fps frame rate is best for rendering gestures and better animation. If we fail to maintain this rate and if the rate goes lower than 60, then it will provide sluggish app performance to users which will ruin their experience.
- Work efficiently with threads:-
There are two types of threads developers face which are primary and secondary threads. Primary threads include UI and secondary threads include background threads. Developers should be smart enough to work with the threads in the system.
- Implement catching:-
Catch data is used to store the temporary file as a thumbnail, script and video snippets instead of loading them every time on the web. So this way catch is used to make a faster loading experience for users but catches cover lots of space for storing the data. Implementation in catch will increase the performance of the android app.
Maintain your best android app performance by applying this strategy. And make users experience the best UI/UX of your app. To get a detailed solution for your android app performance kindly Contact Us. We’d love to help you.
