What is MVP?
A Minimum Viable Product(MVP) is the basic product with enough and necessary features of the final product. This product is tried with first or early customers so that companies can gather feedback from them and use it for further development of the product.
A Minimum Viable Product is a risk definer for companies. Risk that the future developed product would carry if it’s not been tested beforehand. It further helps in extracting insights of the product and how it can be made better.
Developing a fool proof product and then releasing it would increase the chances of losing the invested money because of several reasons such as false assumptions, expectations, market approach and acceptance. Whereas the development of MVP product can be done at a much lower cost and the modifications can be handled through reviews.
Prominent market leading companies such as Uber, Facebook and Instagram are the best examples of how developing a Minimum Viable Product at the initial stage can help you build a proper and better developed application. The process of building a MVP can be useful for mobile application development, web development or a hybrid of both.

A Minimum Viable Product gathers information about bugs and technological issues faced by the customers and help you choose the best tools for your desired product, so that your resources are not wasted.
Resolves security issues
Customers are often found deleting and uninstalling the application in fear of getting their account hacked or if they are facing bugs that are related to security such as random OTPs and passwords. Today, many big companies are running crowdsourced surveys to check if their application is working fine under varying situations. This, of course costs too much.
