Since nearly everyone in the world has a mobile phone now, applications are more commonly used through the phone to access the web, edit documents, send emails and more. Being a successful app developer then should be easy, right?
The question now is, how do we become a successful app developer with more than a million apps Apple and Google’s app stores?
We present to you some tips from successful app developers that will help you better your skills in this space.
- Create something simple
If you are just getting started, create something simple first, then improve it. Creating simple apps that can be published in a month or two allows you to try out various ideas and build a collection of apps, which would raise your possibility of success.
It is critical to make the app easy to use and have the app do things that will easily interest users. The primary objective is to make an app that anyone can figure out how to use within a few minutes.
- Build the app that you are passionate about
Build something that you are interested in and want to solve that the perseverance that you put into creating the app will shine through and give you a kick start.
Also, treat yourself as a primary user of the app. This should give you the urge to create something awesome!
- Study the bad apps
You should not only research on the successful apps but also the horrible ones too. Look at what are the bad points about the apps and ensure that you do not make those mistakes as well.
- Believe in your idea
There is only a thin line between a good idea and a bad one. It may be an excellent idea that no one has thought of and it might not seem that right at the start. Look and think about why you are willing to establish this idea. Then, take the leap and assume success.
- Be determined
The most remarkable successes took several years. They are no overnight achievements. Like what Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. So, be enthusiastic about what you are doing. Stay determined and continue to learn with every version update and applications published.
