What is the most user friendly way to get users to make an account in a mobile app?
Is the best way to not allow the user to use the app before they create an account, or do you allow them to use the app and make them decide whether they want an account or not?
I see advantages and disadvantages with both methods.
If you dont allow the user to use the app before, how do the user know if he/she find it helpful?
If you allow the user to use the app freely, how do you then encourage the user to create an account?
Does anyone have good experience with either methods, or perhaps a third used method that has proven to be succesful?
The way the current development app is designed, the second option would be most fitting, but I see a lot of apps going in the other direction and almost force users to create an account before allowing access. Is this really the best way to go?
