Reduces the fear of under building app

Building an MVP helps you to take away your initial product from becoming cluttered with unnecessary features. This means that your customers will get a simple product that does not contain any unwanted features. They can use the product for its core purpose for which it is developed, and won’t abandon the app because it’s excessively fastidious or confusing.
Reduces rework time
bugs and hiccups are common problems for any new app which comes along the way. While an MVP makes bugs easier to find and fix as compared to feature-rich software packed with layers of functionality.

How #Covid19 won’t affect your idea?
The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus(Covid19) as a global pandemic. It has spread rapidly across the world.

Market demand and customer behavior keep on changing with time, any ignorance will spoil your whole dream of achieving success. You can ask for feedback from the customers and if they are facing any issue, try to resolve such issues at the same time.
