Tips to Develop Profitable iPhone Apps
iPhone app development is not that simple process as it seems to you. We need to enforce thoughtful ideas, strategic design along with planning and teamwork as well as continuous post-launch effort to make your app visible amongst a huge range of audience in the App-Store. So, if you want to ensure your app success then follow below checklist for successful app development.
1) Market Demands
As we know, there are so many apps out in the market that has made app markets over-crowded and so, the blockages to the entry points are low while the blockages to success are high. It is not necessary that your app will be approached as “award-winning” app in the App-Store.

We always concentrate on the tough competition running in the market and it is also quite an important aspect especially for startups and entrepreneurs. But one should also conduct extensive research about your app idea, that whether it is absorbed in the market or will find an opportunity to rule over app market.
2) Designing Uncomplicated Apps
One of the most common mistakes that every developers and designer often make is trying to make the application more complex. They need to understand that people interact and engage with a streamlined and easy-going app, not with the app full of complexities. They should understand the difference between the serviceable app and complex app. The developer needs to keep into consideration that development is not an opportunity given to him to apply and demonstrate his programming skills.
3) Stick with the Apple's Guidelines
Getting Apple's App-Store approval is the foremost step that you need to take after iPhone app development. From the development phase itself, you need to consider Apple's guidelines and should develop your apps accordingly. So, it saves your time to revise and amend the fixes that need to be done once your app is rejected by Apple.
4) Pre-launch App Marketing

Proper SEO and marketing strategy should be incorporated in order to make your app outreach to more number of people.
ii) Proper Content:
Your app marketing is only effective if you provide appropriate content. Despite of giving the huge amount of efforts, if your app does not hold that selling factor or lacks behind the normal standards then, the result can truly disappoint you.
iii) App : Icon, Name, Description & Screenshot:
The first thing that drags users towards your application is App Icon, name and screenshot. Just make sure that the icon and name must be relevant to the app. It just takes only 2-3 seconds for the user to decide whether to download your app or not and so, detailed description should be given regarding your app in a way that it makes user mind to download your app. Also, App Screenshot should be such that it gives the overall idea of the app that helps the user to easily understand and relate your app to them.
