How to make your app popular: Apps and social networks are about value, you are either entertaining people or creating a utility. Why did instagram really work and become one of the most popular apps in the world? It wasn’t a social network, it made us better at taking photos which we care about, and that utility made the app popular and all the other layers came with it. You can either be a utility or you can be escapism.
I know that all of our lives are always busy and intense, but you can be entertainment for your self. If you don’t understand that, just look at the front of your phone. I promise you the apps that are in the front of your phone falls in one of those 3 categories I just mentioned. What is on your home screen of your phone is the single clearest gateway into the psychology of what human beings care about in today’s society. Make an app truly focused on one of those 3 categories to make an app popular.
