Android and iOS have created a huge market of mobile applications. Thousands of apps are released weekly worldwide. Maximum apps are based on Android OS or iOS, because these two platforms are very trending and demanding. In today’s scenario Android and iOS have occupied almost the whole market of smart phones and mobile apps.
The point that I want to bring to your notice here is that although thousands of mobile apps are released weekly, but only few of them become popular and world famous. But why is that so? Did you ever think of it? Why only few apps become popular and trending and generate good revenue for their business? What factors make those apps different; from other normal apps? Here you will get answers of all the above questions.
If you are developing a mobile application and want that your mobile app enter in the trending app list and be popular just like Whatsapp, Angry Bird or Candy Crush, then you must add these ingredients which make the formula of a popular and trending mobile app.
Here we will discuss aspects which make your app more popular:
Platform Compatibility: The mobile app which you are developing should be compatible for all mobile platforms and all major brand devices. Compatibility with tablet resolutions will be an add-on.
Keep it Easy: Keep the functionality of your mobile app as simple as it could be. If possible, then provide it for free download. At the same time your app should be easy to install and easy to use.
Right Targeted Users: If you are thinking that everyone will download your app and use it, then my friend you are altogether wrong. Not everyone will use and install your app. It depends on the mobile app category. Find right target users according to your app category and target your app among right users as well as in right demographic area.
Uniqueness: Don’t copy the ideas or concept of other applications. Make efforts to create an application based on unique idea and new concept. Because people like applications that are new to them and that they have not tried before.
Connectivity With Social Media: If your mobile application doesn’t have the social media connectivity like, Facebook or Twitter then it can be a very big drawback for your mobile application. Beware! You are losing a big amount of users everyday. So, add social media connectivity functions in your mobile application. You can also add share feature, which allows users to share application related activities with other users. This will help spread your app.
You can add some more factors in this list, but these are the basic and important aspects which are essential for a mobile application to become popular and enter in the trending app list.
