7. Network Performance

Chapter 7. Network Performance

One of the more prominent features of mobile devices today is their ability to integrate with the interconnected world we live in. Apple's entire range of iOS devices are designed with interconnectivity in mind. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and carrier network access are the featured networking mediums available on these iOS devices.

A single poorly performing network task has the potential to bring an entire application to an instant halt.

Network performance is not only a necessary component to a healthy application; it is an essential skill that is unfortunately not more widely honed in the iOS App development world.

As is the way development goes, when an aspect of an application is implemented and executed well, it goes unnoticed. Inversely, when a basic feature or function is implemented equally as badly, it can unfortunately become the one single feature that users remember. More unfortunate, is that a single application design flaw can be an enormous indicator that there are greater issues just ahead.
