App Insecurity

App Insecurity

“I’ve made peace with insecurity… because there is no security of any kind.” — Dick Van Dyke

Insecurity is inevitable, and can get in the way of some of the big decisions made in life. There are ways around it and there are a handful of people who handle insecurity better than others, but it’s there staring you back in the face, testing you.

Not only can we sense the lack of confidence in ourselves when it hits, but you notice signs in others as well. For instance, the mom who dresses like her 15 year old daughter you saw at the grocery store. Or the young women who wear loads of makeup to cover-up their self-doubt. The men who use humor and putting down others to hide his insecurity. It’s everywhere! And we don’t just notice it at the gym, or walking into a coffee shop — we notice it at work too.

In our line of work, insecurity can be measured by how many features are added to an app. People tend to add features to feel comfortable. And we get it — the clients opinion matters, but we also want to see their app succeed and not sink to the bottom because they overloaded the system.

We call this “app insecurity.” We see it in a lot of the projects we take on — clients doubting the initial work. Haven’t you ever heard of the saying “stick with your gut?” Don’t allow your insecurity to rule you’re judgement. Don’t add more makeup, or change your original design because you just aren’t sure about it. Of course, there is a difference in altering your app because it’s not in line with what you had in mind, but if it’s spot on and you’re letting your lack of confidence get the best of you, then… Stop it! We value every and any clients opinion, but we ask that you trust us. We’ve had several successful apps pass through our threshold and we work diligently with each client to ensure every app is ready to launch flourishingly.

The upside to all of this is that you can find security in us. You aren’t alone in making these big decisions and we’re here to help you get your app business up and running.

We are all insecure people, in one way or another. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s an important part of the human experience. “It’s insecurity that is always chasing you and standing in the way of your dreams,” — Vin Diesel. Don’t allow your insecurity to tear down what you’ve worked so hard on building up. Don’t feel you have to overcompensate to make up for the possibility of your app failing. Because it’s just that — a possibility, a slim chance and not a sure thing.

Stick with your gut and leave your app insecurities at the door — we are here to develop your app dreams into a reality.
