Before building an app, research the market & then decide which platform is best suitable for you. For example: If you are a Mobile application development company in India & want to build an app for such community that belongs to India where a number of Android users are plenteous & Apple users are negligible, then to construct an app for iPhone is worthless. The audience plays an important role here.
The Second thing to consider is, Is your upcoming app available for free or user needs to pay to install it? Be careful here because a majority of the users are not willing to pay & prefer free app against paid. In this situation, an in-app purchase will be the best option. In the in-app purchase, certain features are available for free while some features are paid. If users will find something worthy in your app, they will definitely shift to the paid one.

Do the market research & find out the reaction of users about your app. Upgrade your app as per the reaction and feedback of the users & release the second version of the app and so on.
- MarketingMarketing is the simplest & most effective way to make your app successful.
