Utilizing User Review to Improve Mental Health Apps

  • Get to know your users: Understanding users and their requirements is crucial for any app development team. The more the merrier. Use all kinds of user information and understand its attributions.
  • Find out what they need and what they value: Knowing the customer’s requirements is a big step. With this knowledge, you can narrow down your product delivery and specifications.
  • Talk to them about the app in development, or even beta versions of it.
  • Ask them what they think of your app: Feedback is crucial to completing this cycle. Both positive and negative feedback will contribute to the success story of your company.
  • Users don’t always know what they want. The problem with asking users what they want is that their answers might not be accurate. It’s easy to say “I’d like a better way of doing “X” when you have no idea how X could be improved! If a solution hasn’t been invented yet, users can’t tell you what it should look like or how it will work until someone invents it.
  • By definition, this means that most user feedback is unrealistic because people don’t usually think about aspects that haven’t been invented yet — they just ask for them without knowing exactly what those things might look like or how they would work in practice (even if they’re possible). That’s why we often see customer requests on websites like Amazon where customers ask for features that don’t exist anywhere else yet (because those features are new) but which may never get created because no one knows how to build them either!
  • Listen to the most frequent requests.
  • Don’t be afraid to make changes.
  • Don’t be afraid to change your mind.
  • Don’t be afraid to say no or yes, because at the end of the day it’s your app and you are responsible for it!
  • Use the right tool for the job.
  • Take a look at our [user reviews] (https://www.moodpath.com/testimonials/) and read what users say about using Moodpath to treat depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other mental illnesses.
  • The most important thing to consider when deciding whether or not to use a particular app is whether it will meet your needs as a patient or caregiver in relation to its ease of use, security, scalability, documentation, and cost-effectiveness (if applicable).
  • Ask for feedback from your users.
  • Never hesitate to make changes according to user reviews.
  • Use the right tool for the job and collect data as you go along. This can help you decide which method is most effective in your situation, or at least give you ideas about what might work better than others.
