Sometimes, I feel like I go into too much detail, get too complicated, and people lose sight of what’s really important at AppsGeyser. What’s really important to us is helping you make great apps. We want everyone to be able to make an Android app quickly, try it out, and then, over time, improve it until it’s incredible. With that in mind, here are six things you should know:

- Turning a website into an app is easy. It’s not always useful. Don’t spend time and energy marketing something that no one needs. Focus your energies on making apps from sites that people often need on the go.
- Making a YouTube channel or playlist into an app is fun and easy, and video apps do well in Google Play.
- An app succeeds if it fulfills a need. There’s no point in making a clock app unless it does something extra. Every Android phone comes pre-loaded with a clock, calendar, and alarm clock. Nobody’s hurting for a new clock. If you want to make a clock, make it do something different.
- Laughing and being entertained are needs. Don’t be afraid to make an app that’s just a joke.
- It’s ok if your first app is a flop. So was Rovio’s (maker of Angry Birds)
- Be sure to keep improving your app. People lose interest in an app that stops improving.
