Make A Successful Android App – Get The Description Right

August 22nd, 2014

It has been a while since we last touch on the topic of app descriptions and guys, it is clear that you have all forgotten the importance of a good app description of you want to make a successful Android app.  App descriptions are such an important part of making a successful Android app a success that I feel that it is time to go over this topic once again and remind you all, that if you have a fantastic product that is simply not selling itself in the app store you will never find Android app success.

Today I am breaking the app description down into 8 simple points:

1: Describe the app – Sounds obvious right? Well believe it or not, many people ramble on and on and don’t actually say clearly what the app is meant to do. You really want to get that first sentence short and concise, for example if your app is a dog photos app, make that clear. Dog photo app that you will enjoy.

2: Describe what the app does – Use your keywords to explain what the app does in the second sentence. For example you can say; View cute dog photos and download them to your mobile phone

3: Explain why is your app special – What makes your app different from any other app that already does something similar to your app? For example; easy one click download process makes our dog photos app simple to use

4: Give full list of function – What else does your app do? for example; the dog photos app categorises the dogs according to their breeds, it updates with new photos daily and allows you to share photos with your friends

5: Give a reason why it should be downloaded now – you need to convince people to download the app now and not wait, for example; photos are changed daily so don’t miss out on the amazing dog photos available today

6: Use the keywords  - Make sure you don’t over use your keywords and make sure they are used within context. I am using the example of dog photos here, but I can’t continue to write dog photos are nice, dog photos are great because this is just spamming and will be rejected by GooglePlay

7: Guarantee – Downloading an app is a risk even if the app is for free people are using their space on their mobile devices and are taking their time to view the app so make sure they have some guarantee that they will like the app. You can always say: Talk to us about our app, let us know which photos you would like us to add for you

8: Contact details – Always make sure you have contact details on your app description because if not people will use the review section to write comments and this could be detrimental to your business.

 

Follow these steps to make sure that you make a successful Android app.

1: Rovio – Free apps are more successful – Believe it or not, Rovio, the company that are behind the Angry bird app series, makes more money from their free app versions than their ad free paid versions of their apps. The saying really is true, pennies make pounds, cents really do make dollars. App users are reluctant to spend just $0.99 on an app if there is a free app available even if it does mean they will have banner ads on that app.

2: Trey Smith – Outsource work – In order to have a successful business it is vital that you enjoy the work that you do, in order to bypass the less fun items on your business to do list, be it, managing your social page for the business, or answering customer service questions, that is the work you should outsource, the extra time you have will allow you to build on the aspects you enjoy and you will soon see this time is well spent, not only will you cover what you’ve paid for outsourcing your business will be more of a success.

3: Matt Luz – Icon Design – Your icon design is your face, your image, your first impression to your potential app users, if you fail to get this right, you could be jeopardising your entire app career. Make sure you research your icon properly, get the quality and style right before you launch your app.

4: Sean Casto – Make your app a success pre-launch – What Sean is trying to get across here is that there are many steps to getting your app ready for launch which will build up your reputation and ensure that your app is ready to be received. Tops pre-launch advice is to build your social network, have reviews ready from trial version that has been sent to selected users only and believe it or not, launch on a Sunday when more people are free to ‘play’ on their mobile devices.

5: Taylor Pierce – Learn from your failures – it may sound harsh, but nothing in life comes easy, you need to be prepared to make mistakes and learn from them, becoming an Android app success does not happen overnight for many people, including most of the top app makers in the world, many have to fine tune their techniques to get to where they are today. Trial and error is what makes a true success.

I hope these tips help you out and you will soon find yourself on the way to Android app success.
