Why does the appeal of some apps quickly fade away?

Why does the appeal of some apps quickly fades away?

Did you know that on average a mobile app loses 75% of its users within the first day of its installation? In addition to this, most applications have a shelf life of no more than a week. Within this time frame, a mobile app is expected to launch itself, function impeccably, build an audience and finally appeal to them enough to facilitate a repeat use.

For mobile app developers who have invested all their time and money on a mobile app development project, a meager seven days is a poor time-frame to work with. That said, studies show that as the number of smartphone users continue to rise, the number of installs will continue to grow. A premier mobile app development company can help you develop a great app. A Gartner research concluded that the majority of mobile apps have about 24 hours to appeal to its audience.

Android filters in the new Play Store version

Google Plus

Have you recently browsed through your installed apps and noticed that you still have Pokémon Go on there even though you haven’t opened it for months?

In fact, Google has noticed it as well and believed that it could do a better job at helping Android users manage the apps in their phones. Scrolling through a seemingly endless list of mobile apps, then entering each app to uninstall it, only to return to the main list to continue to the hunt for wayward apps seems like a daunting task, and for many it is. It takes time, patience and attention, all the things that users these days seem to possess very little of.

Mobile payment apps and systems

Mobile Payment

There was a time when cash was king. People used to carry fistfuls of them. Wallets were fat with banknotes (most banknotes are actually made of cotton fiber). When credit cards hit the scene, they were seen as another method of payment, they found their way into people’s wallets, in small slits in front of the cash section. But, cash was still there, and now with the proliferation of credit card companies, wallets were only getting thicker.

On top of this, it seems that every retail store out there is coming out with their own loyalty card which only increases the number of cards that need to be managed, sorted, used and stored. However, the last couple of years have seen growth in a field of mobile technology that may hold the solution.

The must-have features on a social app

Instagram

Social media has fundamentally changed the way we interact with our friends, portray ourselves and view the world, in general. On one side of the spectrum, we are increasingly sharing our lives and experiences with family, friends and complete strangers. It is a personal affair that tests an individual’s social limits and comforts. On the other end of the spectrum lie those producing content with the sole intent of capturing our attention.
