Today, there are millions of mobile apps serving different purposes on mobile app stores. While some of these become popular in a short while, others remain laid back, waiting to be discovered for a long time. If you too are thinking of creating mobile apps and want it to be among the popular ones, taking the right steps already from the beginning of the process is highly valuable.
A popular app means, being able to impress all the different users with different characteristics, and differing needs on the same level. So what are the considerations when creating such an app?
Here are some particulars of creating a popular app for you.
Look from a different point of view
When you look at the app stores, you can find tens of apps with same features, serving same purposes. Users too can have difficulty deciding between these apps. At this point, it carries great importance for you to appeal to them with an advantage which competitors do not provide.
To be able to provide a unique benefit, you do not necessarily need to make an outstanding invention. Just by carefully inspecting your purposes and benefits you provide, and looking from a different point of view, you may be able to find the solution. Perhaps even highlighting a way of your app neglected by your competitors, or taking a different line of speech can allow you to step ahead of the others.
Put yourself in your user’s shoes
Among the first paths that lead to developing a useful and popular app is empathy you will form with users. If you were a user, would you use that app, and why?
This way, you can see your users’ needs, desires, the many points they like or dislike on the app. Once you solve their expectations, you can develop your app quickly. Whatever benefit, ease and service your app provide to users, make sure to implement it in most efficient way possible.
Follow the trends
Modern mobile users are becoming highly sensitive to trends. If you want to have a popular app that can impress them, you too can investigate the trends in your industry and include them in your app. For example, if we look at the trends today, we can see that social sharing and location based services are gaining considerable importance. You can highlight such features while creating your app, and reach the users who follow newest trends this way.
Pay attention to criteria of different app stores
Your app may have been developed in a powerful way that will draw the attention of users and serve their needs, but if it cannot get highlighted on the stores, its chance of popularity drops dramatically. To prevent this negative situation, it is crucial to inspect the criteria of stores you develop the apps for, and form your app by those.
Maybe, you can first define the app store most suitable for you and develop the app for it, and then later move on to other stores as well.
