3 New Year’s Resolutions for App Developers

It’s going to be a big year for apps. While the total number of mobile downloads hovered at about 200 billion in 2018 (counting both the Apple and Google app stores combined), experts predict that number will make a stunning leap to over 350 billion app downloads by 2021. Obviously, you’re going to want to get in on that tremendous boom—and 2019 is a key stepping stone.

It’s an exciting and scary time: Sometimes, it feels like anything is possible. On the other hand, there’s no room to hide, and there are very few excuses for mistakes, now that developers have access to premier technology to rapidly build and launch life-changing mobile games, services, and tools.

Eyece can help ensure that you live up to your goals in 2019. It harnesses the power of crowds to help you release the most user-friendly, error-free version of your app—as quickly and affordably as possible.

Here are 3 New Year’s Resolutions that you can achieve with Eyece:

1. Lose Weight. Every year, the appeal of shedding extra pounds persists as one of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions. It’s also an understandable desire for developers—but we’re talking about getting your app in shape, not your waistline. Whether you’re cutting back on bulky code, eliminating extraneous contractors from your payroll, or ramping up your release date by lobbing months off your production schedule, these are all ways to cut back that you can achieve through Eyece. Test out sleek programming shortcuts and see how they hold up with real users. Take the burden of exhaustive stress-testing out of your team’s hands by letting us seamlessly connect you with hundreds of trustworthy testers around the globe. Prepare to launch your new app faster than the competition by getting invaluable data from concurrent, diverse trials running simultaneously on our app-testing platform. You’ll enjoy a lighter, faster, healthier product when you get your app in shape with Eyece.

2. Retain Users. It’s true that more users are downloading more apps than ever in 2018—and that trend is only expected to escalate in 2019. However, one of the most important things to keep in mind when looking at app download rates is that fact that today’s users still tend to stick to a few apps that they use regularly and know well. While they are often eager to branch out, most new downloads still get deleted when memory runs low or it’s time for some spring cleaning. They might also simply decline to download the apps again if they get a phone upgrade. Only the essentials show a high rate of retention over time—but that doesn’t have to exclude your app. Learn what users consider “essential” and what interfaces and features they’d most like to see from your app in advance, by testing features and holding conversations with real users, so that you improve your chances of getting high ratings and great reviews once the app makes its debut in the app store. This will not only help promote your app to other new users, but improve your chances of retention.

3. Reduce Costs. Saving money is also one of the biggest goals that people tend to set as New Year’s Resolutions. (Of course, this goes hand-in-hand with making more money.) Eyece can help you accomplish both with fixed rates, competitively low costs per trial and user, and the option to decline payment if you’re not fully satisfied. You’re also teed up to see greater ROI thanks to extensive testing that will help you optimize your UX, eliminate glitches, and enhance your app’s most popular elements. By connecting with real users, you’ll also gain key insights to marketing strategy. Plus, you’re simply going to release a better product overall thanks to informative, honest, expert feedback.

Happy New Year from Eyece! Here’s to reaching your potential and achieving all of your goals in 2019.
