The mobile app market is like the universe itself – constantly expanding at an accelerating rate. The Big Bang was over ten years ago when the first smartphones exploded onto the scene. Since then, these devices have become more and more affordable, data prices have dropped, and the app market has soared. The latest figures from Statista tell us that there are now 2.1 million apps in the Google Play store, and Apple users have 2 million applications to choose from – generating billions of downloads each year.

Smart business owners have long known the benefit of focusing on designs that are not only beautiful, but put the user at the heart of a great experience. For many, though, balancing a competing list of priorities means that user experience is often seen as a ‘nice to have’, and takes a back seat.

Jira is a really popular tool for tracking bugs, issues, and project management activities in general so you would think that the wide range of option it offers are just common knowledge at this point, and the adoption of productive integrations and apps has been exploited to the point where it is really hard to do something more effective anymore. The reality is a bit different, though, and there are a few reasons why most companies do not take advantage of the full potential of Jira, the main ones being:

You start working as a Project Manager. If the company is at least the size of Netguru (almost 600 people, including almost 50 PMs, and still growing), after a couple of days you will have this overpowering feeling that it’s impossible to do to your job. Honestly, this feeling will come back every once in a while. But this only *seems* unmanageable – after all, who is better at this than yourself, a ma-na-ger? In general, don’t leave things for later, you will forget about them or they will pile up and suffocate you (metaphorically speaking, of course). There is no way you can remember everything. You can try, but I am certain that your brain will fry or shut down pretty quick. Here’s a list of 10 useful tips and tricks on managing your calendar and inbox as a gift from me, a PM at Netguru.

Before the release of iOS 12, if your app offered a specific category of service (e.g. messaging or payments), it could integrate Siri to let the user perform certain actions (intents) in response to spoken commands. It was cool, but Siri only recognized phrases defined by Apple, and you couldn’t create your own custom intent. With the introduction of iOS 12, Apple made it possible to create your own intents and also released Siri Shortcuts.

Mobile devices now account for over half of all Internet traffic, with the majority of this traffic dominated by apps. Android, Google’s mobile operating system, leads the global smartphone operating system market with an 81% market share.

Imagine the nightmare of every project team: all tickets in the sprint are done, but the feature itself is not working. Unfortunately, as I’ve experienced too many times before, such a scenario is not that far from the reality of project management. It all boils down to finding the right form of task description.
