How much of the market do you think your app idea can take? How will it stand up to competition in the App Store or Play Store? Is there a saturated market for your idea?
These are just some of the questions that need to be answered before moving forward with creating an application. It is not enough to have a great app idea, but it also needs to be marketed well and accepted by users. In this post, we will explore how one might research their own app’s success chances and what steps need to be taken before investing any time and money into its development. This post is geared towards those who already have an idea for an application they would like to create or are thinking about developing one soon.
The answer can be found by looking at how many apps are currently available and what other competitors exist. There are a number of services that provide searchable databases of all the apps in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store. App Annie offers a free service where you can compare your idea with others like it, as well as find out what people think about those apps (based on reviews). You will also learn who else has tried something similar, which could help you decide on whether or not to continue pursuing this app idea or move onto something different.
While there are no guarantees that your app will be a success, it is important to do the research and know what you’re getting into. The number of apps in the market today means that competition for downloads can be tough. If you decide to move forward with development, we hope this post has given you some insight on how to proceed!
