Chapter 3: Discover the New World > TRAITS OF SUCCESSFUL APPS

TRAITS OF SUCCESSFUL APPS

Every success story differs, but the most successful apps share quite a few common traits. The following list gives you an idea of most of those traits. In the next chapter, I talk about how to use this list when you are brainstorming for app ideas.

When looking at an app, ask yourself if the app has these qualities:

  • Fun/Entertaining—How much entertainment value does the app provide? Does it bring joy and excitement to users? Does it make them laugh? Like a great movie, a great app keeps users glued to their screens.
  • Intuitive—The best apps are simple and easy to use. People can figure them out intuitively and quickly. Consumers shouldn't have to read extensive instructions to get started. Angry Birds and Doodle Jump are masters at this.
