There are many moving parts to having a successful application on a mobile platform like Android, not the least of which is having something that people will actually like and find compelling. Sometimes though app success can just be dumb luck. Flappy Bird is a great example as even the game's creator never expected it to be a smash hit. Is there a winning combination of steps you can take to make your app a success once you submit it to Google Play for approval and finally hit the publish button? According to Google the answer is yes, and they want to help you get your app to that point. That's why they have created a handy little guide for you to follow to ensure that your app flourishes.
The app is touted as listing everything you need to know to make the app stand out, grab users attention and hold that attention as a winning app. The guide is a rather large and lengthy affair so don't expect the capability to breeze through a few pages of explanations and tips/tricks to get your app to where it needs to be. The guide itself is available in Google Play Books, so at least you can take it with you wherever you go on any of your Android devices or any platform that can access Google Play Books online or offline. The guide, titled The Secrets To App Success stretches over a vast eighty one pages of helpful and useful tips on how to make your app noticeable, and what little known secrets(at least until tons of people probably read this book, because they won't be secrets long after that)you can utilize to hit a home run on the app front.
Google covers things like Publishing the app to the Play Store, Quality, Discoverability and Reach, Engagement and Retention, Monetization, Measurement With Google Analytics, and Going Global just to touch on some key points. Keep in mind though, as we stated above the book is eighty one pages long, so there is loads of stuff to go over, even if it is all helpful information that you'll want to have an understanding of. If you develop apps, or plan to, carve out some time to grab this book from Google Play Books and maybe set some time aside to read through it, even if little by little.
