There are over a million apps on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Nevertheless, the need for good apps is still rising as more people start using smartphones around the world. This means that you still have a good chance to earn well from a mobile app or game you develop. Here are some tips that will help you develop a top-earning app or game.
App: make sure it’s useful
Nobody looks for an app that doesn’t serve any purpose. That’s why you should find a niche for your app and make sure it fills a need. Look at popular apps like Evernote, AccuWeather and Triposo. They all provide a service to the user. Moreover, all of these apps provide a service that does not rely on the user’s location, gender, marital status and other demographic factors. All of these services are completely universal and extremely handy.
Game: fill the time
If you are developing a mobile game and want to make it a top earner, make sure that it’s addictive. Put it simply, make your game fill time and make it interesting enough for the player to stay hooked and keep playing. Look at Angry Birds and Hill Climb Racing. Both have levels that are not very difficult, yet provide a challenge to keep the player going. Plus both games have in-app purchases that let the developer earn money.
Look for inspiration
And one last thing. Feel free to browse the App Store, check out other apps and see how you could improve a similar app idea. Inspiration doesn’t come from nowhere, so use every opportunity you can to get inspired and create your top-earning app.
