As indicated by the AppBrain statistics, the present number of mobile applications in Google Play is quickly making a beeline for 3 million, and this ascending pattern isn’t probably going to change soon. Sounds promising from a dedicated mobile application developer perspective, isn’t that so?
All things considered, it isn’t that easy. The rundown of top Android app developers is hardly changing much, over the previous years, particularly in the competitive categories. Apparently, just the most fortunate [and the craziest] would set out rival giants, such as Google or Facebook, not to mention, a win over some share of their loyal group of onlookers.
It leaves fewer specialties worth struggling/fighting.
Leaving gaming applications aside, most iOS app developers or say Android programmers’ expectations, by and large, succumb to tools and, unquestionably, personalization applications.
Most importantly, the type of alternatives to experiment with appears to be enormous. Also, open-source libs around the Web conceivably limit the diligent work. To wrap things up, if there’s no Google, who can keep their application from getting to the top?
Indeed, that is the point at which the fantasy of feasible achievement plays a trap on hybrid app developers’ psyche, and here’s the reason.
Myth 1. The assortment of alternatives to try out is large
The top 10 Personalization applications as of now incorporate gadget/device launchers, subjects/backdrops and ready-to-use ringtones for smartphone users. That is it.
The top- 10 applications in Tools are generally device cleaners, battery savers, and antiviruses, as needs are.
At last, the “tremendous assortment of choices” is restricted to possibly three popular application sorts for each category. Sounds disheartening, ha? Hold up, it deteriorates.
Over the previous year, the backdrop/subject/ringtone applications prominence, not to mention the device cleaners/CPU optimizers have been consistently decreasing for one clear reason – they’re proving futile.
Why would one download a separate wallpaper application, if he can easily select an outstanding wallpaper or screensaver from his photo Gallery?
Who needs a ringtone list, if cutting short any tune on gadget takes seconds in an easy-to-use ringtone maker application, as Ringtone Maker Wiz.
Second, now to gadget cleaners and battery savers… Have you ever considered the amount CPU or battery such an application devours itself? Simply try to track it once, you’ll be stunned!
Honestly, you’ll be fortunate to wind up with a same saved CPU and battery life with and without a memory cleaner on your smartphone or tablet!
Myth 2. Open-source libs limit diligent work
Simply look past the specified top-10 Tools and Personalization applications – you’ll discover a huge number of application analogs.
The functional core of such Android or iOS applications is generally based upon one of the well-known open-source libs, and their advancement, clearly, didn’t take much time or dedicated mobile app developer efforts.
In any case, who might introduce an inadequately performing, monstrous application analog, rather than a stylish (reliable) application by a dependable Android app developer that a trustworthy Mobile app development company hires.
I wouldn’t, would You?
Myth 3. No Google, no opposition
Best 10 Personalization applications neither incorporate Google, nor Facebook applications. Does it mean the opposition in this specialty gets less extreme? Ugh, no, simply take a gander at the table beneath:
|Aspect||Personalization: # of apps|
|Total # of apps||153 507|
|Free apps||121 270 (79% of total in category)|
|Mid-/high-quality apps||128 945 (84% of total in category)|
|Apps with 50 000+ downloads||13 723 (9% of total in category)|
As we see, the potential contenders just among the free Personalization applications surpasses 120 000!
Also, despite the fact that the greater part of the contenders is mid-or high-quality applications, their download rate is сritically low!
What does this mean? Regardless of the possibility that your recently included Personalization application is great, odds are, despite everything you won’t hold the ability to adapt it on Google Play. It’s tragic, however true.
