If you’ve created a fantastic Android app and you’re looking for more ways to get people to download it, don’t forget the power of videos. Remember Friday, Friday? Or Charlie Bit My Finger? Chances are, you and all of your friends have seen them. That’s because videos are powerful stuff.
Videos have a lot of advantages over other forms of media:
- You can show the app instead of just talking about it.
- You can show people enjoying the app.
- YouTube is an extra place where people can search for you.
- Videos get priority when they’re shared on Facebook.
