Top 5 Mobile APP Questions of 2017
This is probably the best and most frequent question I have gotten in the last 5 years. Truth is a lot of APPS are created and people never use them after opening them up just one time.
Another truth is most consumers probably haven’t had their morning coffee yet and have already checked on 4 or 5 apps. Whether checking what’s going on in social media, looking at work calendar, today’s to do’s or your fitness schedule. Good or bad, as a society we are glued to our phones.
So the real question is how do you get them to engage in your APP regularly?
The answer is surprising simple. If you provide relevant, informative, useful and entertaining information and allow them the opportunity to review, suggest, vote and otherwise participate in your APP – they WILL come and they will use it.
