Time and again, we've witnessed well-designed devices, crafted with dedication and resources, fall short upon launch. The culprit? A hastily built companion app that fails to meet user needs.
In far too many instances, we've seen product teams treat their IoT app as an afterthought, quickly assembling it without putting much thought into it's usability or the problem it should be solving for users. While it may function adequately, it fails to deliver the functionalities users truly desire.
This common pitfall can be sidestepped by giving the app design and development the same level of consideration as the device itself.
