We spend a lot of time on apps in our day-to-day life. We organize meetings and catch-up with colleagues at work, order food online, book rides on Uber and much more. We have not even tried the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any other apps that people spend most of their time to utilize our daily tasks. The new apps are having huge competition with popular apps to attract the new customers. And the positive thing is that smartphone users have gone up to 2 billion in recent years. So, consumers are becoming more set in their ways about which apps they will use, and more apps are falling by the same way.
The future of apps is not in the App Store at all and multi-functional apps that live inside a common portal. Most smartphone users spend most of their time using only the top 10 apps, but most people are not using the same 10 apps. If you want to get more consumers to notice your app this year, you can not expect that they will ever discover it on their own, because they are happy with the apps they already have on their smartphone. When you display ads then only you can grab enough users and your app can be the top in charts list or you can go where the users already are in other apps.
For example, WeChat is a popular chatting app platform, that developers can create their own native sub-apps through the WeChat API, which can generate more revenue. As this is the best entry to users, where many users can not invest in the desktop web. Facebook Messenger also allows users to book a ride from Uber through their chat feature. In recent year Facebook has been trying to change the way users discover apps outside of the App Store, and developers likely experiment creating an entire ecosystem of sub-apps.
However, the new app platform may not be the Facebook, or WeChat, or other platforms that even not existed now and that new app platform may crack the idea of an app portal to attract more American audiences, but don’t be surprised if your new app efforts live entirely inside another app in few years.
