  • 1. Patrick Kane | Priori Data GmbH | @prioridata All platforms are created equal – right?
  • 2. What this talk covers • “State of the Market” for mobile app platforms – Size / reach – Composition by Category – Growth – Monetization • Key considerations for developers • Q&A
  • 3. Who this is for... • Those thinking about developing an app • Those currently building an app • Those optimizing an existing app • Those investing in app developers
  • 4. Who are we? • We do app store analytics. We track the performance of >2mm apps and >250k developers across iOS, Android, and Windows prioridata.com
  • 5. Key message • There are very few “lucky winner” apps in today’s app stores • Success is becoming expensive. To minimize the expense you need to perform research on your platform, category, and sub-category

  • 26. Conclusion
  • 27. Sanity check • App store analytics are important, but it is by no means the only piece of the puzzle...
  • 28. Some additional considerations • • • • User base (demographics) Device base (fragmentation) Developer environment (documentation) App discovery / user acquisition
  • 29. Sanity check • App store analytics are important, but you have a long journey Source: Vision Mobile Developer Economics Report 2013
  • 30. Your leverage • There are hundreds of tools providers vying for your relationship (so is Priori) • Use this to your advantage: they can lower your barriers to entry, minimize cost, and much more Source: Priori, Vision Mobile Developer Economics Report 2013
  • 31. My final thoughts • Unless you have an established brand, start with one platform • There are no shortcuts with app development, and the game isn’t over once you are in the store • Know yourself: polished perfectionist? iOS. Iterator? Android Source: Priori Data, Vision Mobile Developer Economics Report 2013, Bubba VC.
