From online dating, e-commerce shopping, chat-based, free calling, location-based events and places, news-related, to cab services, mobile applications are developed nowadays. The main goal of developers is to cater the placid and peppy experience to the user by outstanding design, easy-to-use menus, well-fixed UI. This is because consumers’ expectation about everything has increased to a higher level as they are open to choose from hundreds of available options as an alternative, in the market.
