AppBrain’s latest statistics revealed that there are nearly 3 million apps in Google Play store for Android powered smartphones and tablet devices. The upturn is likely to continue in future. This sounds interesting and promising but then come several myths which still deter few business owners which want to enter the mobility with an Android app development. This post aims to bust all those myths which prevent businesses to invest in their Android app development projects.
These myths leave the people interested in Android app development confused that whether they should invest in an Android app or not.
Let’s begin with them and try to bust them all.
1) Variety of app option
All right. What types of apps are added to the top-10 personalization app category? They are generally device launchers, wallpapers, theme changers, and ringtones for devices. The tool category’s top 10 apps are typically battery severs, antivirus tool, and device cleaners. In short there are only 3 to 4 popular apps in each category, and the most of the options are not available for the developers.
The most disappointing thing is that these theme, wallpaper, and ringtone apps are fading out as users either have better options in their devices themselves or they can download all this stuff directly via through internet.
2) No hard work with open-source libraries
Many apps directly depend on single popular open source libraries and this is why developers need to spend enough time or efforts to build an app. But these libraries cannot become the base to those apps which can really engage users. Users instantly uninstall poor apps because of the stylish and reliable ones which experienced developers build without depending on Google’s open source libraries.
No doubt open source libraries greatly reduce the development time but the result they deliver doesn’t please to the eyes’ of all users. So, the hard work is necessary and is better than imitation.
3) Google is the only competition
As we took the example of personalization app category, Google and Facebook have nothing to offer to them. But many developers think these companies can any time enter a category like this and emerge as their competitors as they are already doing in other app categories. But on the other side, Google, Facebook and Twitter have turned such giants as they now hardly think about their presence in every nook and corner of mobility world. Developers owning unique ideas should stop considering these giants as competitor. They should focus more on creating their apps appealing that can even catch the attention of these giants which may later buy the idea or fund it. We know how Facebook bought WhatsApp for huge amount when the company realized that the app is going to be the future of instant messaging.
