How to create the perfect app

Don’t Do It, Don’t Copy and Paste – Copyright Does Exist in the Mobile World

July 27th, 2015

Every once in a while we feel the need to remind you all that it is not acceptable to steal content.

Sadly, this is a true story. Many app makers create apps that simply are copies of some else’s content, and Google bans these app makers from GooglePlay. Using content that belongs to someone else, or including using their brand name in your app, is nothing short of theft. Copyright violations on the web are taken seriously. Just because the web is thought to be public, since everyone can see content, doesn’t mean you can place it in an app and pretend it is your own.

 

app business content

There is more to creating your own content than just wanting to avoid copyright infringement laws. You want your app audience to take your brand seriously, and to build credibility. This is not possible if you are faking it from day one. Unique content shows your audience that you know your stuff, and that your business is a genuine business which will support its app users, and provide them with the best content.

Don’t start your app career by ruining your app business’s reputation. Don’t take the risk of having your app removed from GooglePlay. Create your own content for your Free Android app.

AppsGeyser offers you a number of ways to turn content into apps. You can use AppsGeyser’s easy to use templates to create an app from your existing content, or you can create new and exciting content from scratch.

How to create content without breaking copyright laws

Your content needs to grab the attention of your app users from the moment they see your brand in the app store. Your screenshots on your download page should highlight the best of your app content. To make sure your app content is original, and will capture your audience’s attention, you need to make sure your app content is: 

Eye catching: Those first words should alert the user to the tone and style of the content.

Friendly: The language you use should suit your audience type.

Newsworthy: Make sure the content is up to date and interesting.

Time-bound: Content that is old is boring or content that is too long will get a poor review.

 

Grab inspiration for fresh content by doing the following:

Start Reading: Books, magazines, online blogs, anything that is subject related. Grab some ideas and note them down.

Brainstorm: Get some inspiration from friends and colleagues. This can help bring some new and creative ideas to the table.

Training: Do some extra training in your field of expertise. The new materials that you learn may give you some ideas.

Networking – Your social networking friends are good sources of ideas for new content.

You want your app to not only attract an audience but to have an element that will engage your audience so that they will want to keep coming back. You can use a range of methods, such as daily quizzes, or different discussions that will provoke a reaction in the audience, making them want to engage.

App making is easy, and it is time for you to get making an app today.

Upload Your App to GooglePlay – Video Tutorial

July 24th, 2015 1 Comment »

Time to get your app into the public domain and upload it to GooglePlay

App distribution is what we see as the most exciting part of app making. This is the point at which you make your work public, and begin your journey to app success.

In order for your app business to succeed, you need to get your app into the public domain in the most effective manner. GooglePlay is not the only app store in the Android market, but whether or not we like it, GooglePlay dominates the market, and for most people is the best way to get an app to the masses.

The success of your app distribution comes down to your pre-distribution  marketing. In previous posts, we have spoken about the importance of building your brand prior to app distribution. Once you have got to the distribution stage, it is not the time to take a step back. You need to ensure that the distribution process is carried out precisely, as now isn’t the time to start making mistakes.
