AppReview: SnapChat

SnapChat is an awesome social mobile application that allows its users instant messaging with highly secured environment which is available on android and iOS.


Special Features:

  1. Instant Messaging
  2. Photo Sharing
  3. Video Sharing
  4. Video Chatting
  5. Fresh Design
  6. User Suitable Interface

Two Stanford University students, Evan Spiegel and Murphy developed SnapChat. The main attractive feature of snapchat is time-limited photo sharing. This feature made snapchat unique and attractive. So this app is being more popular day by day. Time-limited photo sharing mean this app allows users to set 1-10 seconds time to display the sent photo to the recipients. That means after 1-10 seconds the photo will be disappeared from the recipient’s inbox. That’s why snapchot is more secure than other social apps.


Yes. Obviously this app is well. Its performance is very good. It performs smoothly on android and iOS both. This app is highly secured. It doesn’t save the messages or photos in inbox like other social app. So if one user sends message to his/her friends, his friends must respond immediately otherwise the message will be lost automatically. So it’s important to be available online for both users. May be some people think that it’s a limitation. No it’s not limitation. It’s your security. Your photo or messages will be disappeared automatically. So it has less chance of sharing your personal photos on social networks without your permission.

Anyway, snapchat is a great secured instant messaging platform. You can download this app for your smartphone or tab and may get a great snapchat experience.

App Review: Star Cruises

Star Cruises


Being in a luxury cruise is just about the best way to spend some high quality vacation days. Of course, in going about securing a reservation or just plainly keeping tabs on a specific cruise, it can get difficult. This is particularly what mobile apps such as the Star Cruises App is invented for. With such an app, getting in touch with a certain Star Cruise has never been easier. It has been designed to make the Star Cruises experience memorable and all the more convenient.

The good thing about the Star Cruises app is that it somehow makes the booking part of the cruising experience very easy and very conveniently fast. One thing that the user will notice the moment the app is running is the ease and speed that it can process commands and just how much it is a breeze to go through. The interface is very user-friendly and, without a doubt, it can be used and operated by just about anyone who can use a phone or a tablet. One other thing that can be noticed is that though the interface is very simple and straightforward, it is still very stylish and never dull. Another great thing about this app is that it can be adapted for those who are not natural English speakers. It even has an enabled simplified Chinese content. Also, the user will have a lot of choices to avail of offers and promos as the app would be updated when discounts and promos are offered. Also, it is a very good place to look for other offers from other products as it now has enabled promotions for non-cruise products.

But despite the Star Cruises App being a very great app for cruise enthusiasts and vacation-goers, it is not perfect. For one thing, it cannot be downloaded and installed by just about any kind of version of Android. It has to be a 4.03 version of the Android OS or above. Another little annoyance that could be gotten from this App is that the offers and bookings that it provides are exclusively for Star Cruises ships. Though this is understandable because this is an exclusive app from Star Cruises, there are some who would still appreciate being able to compare and contrast it with other cruises.
All in all, the Star Cruises App is just about everything that someone planning to be or is in a Star Cruise, could really enjoy. It gives the user ease from the booking to the updates and keeping track of the activities all throughout the cruise. Though it is not without any flaws, this gem of an app is still very useful for users who really appreciate convenience.

How Even an App with Very Few Downloads Can Build a Successful Business

Developers need to look beyond downloads to build their app businesses.

On the outside this sounds like a great idea. A lot of successful app developers have been saying this for a really long time.

So what do they really mean by this?

How do you build a business without worrying about downloads?

95% of the app developers currently make money using one of the following strategies:

Monetizing with Ads – this is the most preferred medium of monetizing an app for app entrepreneurs. An app developer integrates an Ad Network SDK in the app and then the app entrepreneur is paid based on the number of views the ads receive.

Monetizing with In-App Purchases – In-App purchases have very quickly turned into a preferred medium to monetize the apps. A lot of app developers release a free app and limit the functionality, slow down progress or show annoying ads in their free app. If a user wants to get rid of these constraints or annoyances, the user can make a payment inside the app. A well-implemented in-app purchase actually works pretty well and can generate a decent amount of revenue to the app entrepreneur.

Monetizing with Paid Apps – This strategy is losing its appeal as more and more apps move towards in-app purchases as their preferred strategy to monetize apps.

All the three strategies mentioned above work decently well and in fact many app developers have made millions based on the in-app purchase monetization strategy.

But the problem with all the above strategies is that each one of the above strategy has a very specific requirement to be successful.

Succeeding with Current App Monetization Models

Ads – For an app entrepreneur to make serious money with ads, the app needs to have been downloaded at least 100,000 times. Also just getting downloads is not good enough. Most apps lose a majority of their users very quickly. They have low retention and engagement metrics. Since your revenues from ads depend on the number of sessions, if your app loses users or has low engagement then you are not going to make any money from your app. For example, I was recently helping a game studio market their apps. Although we were able to increase the number of downloads through ASO, Facebook ads and other medium, the retention rate of the games was really poor. The app was getting close to 3,000 downloads per day but it was losing 95% of the users by day 2.

In-App Purchases – This type of monetization is the most profitable but at the same time also the most difficult to get right. Even large companies are known to spend huge amounts of money A/B testing their in-app purchase workflows to try to increase the number of people making in-app purchases. This strategy also relies on specific types of individuals to make money. The real money through in-app purchases is made when a game is able to acquire users who are referred to as “Whales”. These are the people who spend large amounts of money to purchase virtual currency to rapidly progress through an app or a game. The truth is that most app entrepreneurs are just not sophisticated enough to identify the “whales” and nurture them to make big money.

Paid Apps – There is not much point discussing this strategy, as it is widely known that the whole app store is moving towards the freemium model where app entrepreneurs are looking for alternate ways to make money, rather than making money by charging people for downloading the apps.

Enter the Invisible Way To Make Money From Apps
That’s why has some company decided that this had to change and as a result started working with a few other entrepreneurs to create a business model which allowed app entrepreneurs with even low number of downloads to make good money.

We call this model the Invisible Business Model for Apps.

This business model basically makes it possible for app entrepreneurs with even low download counts to make some good money. The app entrepreneurs also do not need to worry about the ad networks, user engagement, retention and a whole lot of other issues plaguing other apps.

This business model is truely a game changer.

Why Are Great Apps Shying Away From Push Messages?

Why Are Great Apps Shying Away From Push Messages?

We’ve been trained to smell spam from a mile away. We’ve been subjected to it for so long that we’ve developed a sixth sense that can detect it long before it even arrives in our inbox.

But email and push messages are fundamentally different. All it takes is for someone to get a hold of your email address, and they can send you as many emails as they want.

With push messages however, business can only send them to people who actually have their app installed on their phone. This means they’re already interested in your app and their spam sense is no longer heightened.

So why do some people still consider push messaging a form of spam? Because a few rotten apps have spoiled the barrel. There are thousands of app marketers who respect the valuable real estate on their users’ phones. But a select few have abused this privilege, constantly sending impersonal, uninteresting messages about how much they miss them. They’re doing it all wrong. We’ve found time and time again, that when app marketers spend time developing a strong push messaging strategy, it works.

“We’re just going to scare our users away.”

Does this image come to mind when you imagine users receiving your push notifications? Well then, you have quite the imagination! Here’s the real story: If you’re not sending push messages to your users, you’re missing out a huge opportunity to draw their attention and re-engage them. In fact, we’ve found that abandonment rate actually drops from 21% to 11% when users have push enabled.

But if you’re just sending blanket messages, you could be squandering this opportunity. Segmenting is a way to group your users by specific profile or behavioral data. For example, you may want to highlight a certain Alex Rodriguez steroids story to only those users who have viewed the baseball category in the past. Rather than try to craft a generic message that caters to your entire audience, this allows you to hone in on the messaging that you know will resonate with different personas.

“Only big brands can get away with sending push messages.”

It can be daunting knowing that your messages are potentially going against the likes of Tinder, Pinterest and Facebook. And true, you may have to work harder to prove your value, but you have just as much right to be on your users’ screens as they do. Don’t sell yourself short! They downloaded your app for a reason. If you can identify what they find so valuable, you can capitalize on this by sending them push messages you know they’ll respond to. Remember, your users have the chance to opt out of push messages for specific apps. If you’re doing it better than the big guys, then guess what? You’ll stay on their screen. They won’t.

“We would try it, but we have no clue what to write.”

Not everyone was born to be a copywriter. And if you’ve never done it before, it can be a bit overwhelming coming up with your first push message. Which stories do your customers care about? What types of sales would grab their attention? Both are valid questions. But you have to start somewhere. While it’s impossible to read your users’ minds, there are techniques to better understand what resonates with them. Here are a few tips to get you started:

1. A/B test

Also known as split-testing, this allows you to run one single marketing campaign with two alternate messages. Once you determine the winning copy, you can then use that as the control to test even more messages against. Think of it like a science experiment for push messages. How does this help you write your copy? It gives you a place to start. If something doesn’t work, you can change it and then have a benchmark to measure all future campaigns against.

2. Keep your messages clear and concise

It can be pretty tempting to be as detailed as possible with your push messages. Afterall, you don’t want to leave out the one nugget of info that triggers your users to click. But in fact, we’ve found that shorter is better. If your message is between 11 and 20 words, you’re on the right track. But if you keep it to 10 words or fewer, you can more than double your click-through-rate compared to long messages with more than 20 words long.

3. Use templates

Templates are one of the easiest ways to get those gears going when you can’t seem to think of anything. If you find yourself in this boat, try using one of our 8 push notification formulas to get that mojo flowing.

“No one has push messages enabled anymore.”

There’s been an ugly rumor going around lately – that no one enables push messages on their phones anymore. As much as SMS companies would love you to believe this, it’s simply not true. We’ve actually found that more people have them enabled than don’t! We sampled over 400 million devices and saw that 52% of users have push enabled. That’s a big chunk of your user base that you could be missing out on if you’re not using push.

“People don’t even pay attention to push messages.”

You’ve been there before. Waiting on an important phone call from your new crush or potential new job offer. You feel a slight vibration in your left pocket. “Is this it? Is this the one?!” you ask yourself. You pull out the phone with butterflies in your stomach, eyes wide, only to see that it’s a push notification from your Hipster Music app with the phrase, “Hipster? But I barely even know her!” As confusion, rage and disappointment simultaneously set in, you begin to question the very existence of modern technology, knowing that anything, even the infamous phantom vibrate, would’ve been better than that push notification.

It’s apps like Hipster Music that have left a sour taste in people’s mouths. But the reality is this: It’s not that people don’t pay attention to push messages, it’s that people don’t pay attention to bad push messages. Which means that if you do it right, your users will listen and possibly even act. In fact, we’ve found that app launches increase by 88% for users who have push enabled on their phones. And on average, it results in a retention rate that’s 3 times higher.

Engagement: From Download to Conversion

Maybe you’ve found yourself voicing one or all of these objections in the past. But now you know the facts. Push messaging is a unique opportunity to engage (and re-engage) your users from download to conversion. Equipped with the right tools, you can establish powerful conversations with your users that they’ll be sure to remember.

Why Your Business Needs Its Own Mobile App

We would like to talk about mobile apps in combination with business, and why you should consider building a mobile app for your own company.

If you think that mobile apps are solely for big name brands, you are wrong. More and more small and midsize businesses are following the mobile trend, understanding that an effective mobile strategy involves more than just a mobile-friendly website.

In fact, these days you’ll notice that many small businesses you interact with in your everyday life have their own dedicated mobile app. These companies are ahead of the game when it comes to taking their marketing to the next level.

In case you are still not sure why anyone would want to build their own mobile platform, here are the top seven benefits of going down this path sooner rather than later.

1. Be Visible to Customers at All Times

Statistics show that the average people spends more than two hours a day on his or her mobile device. While probably only a handful of applications make up the bulk of this total usage, it doesn’t change the fact that each user has to unlock, scroll, and scan their device for the apps they’re looking for.

2. Create a Direct Marketing Channel

Apps serve many functions: they can provide general info, prices, booking forms, search features, user accounts, messengers, news feeds, and so on.

One of the biggest benefits of mobile app is that all the information you’d like to provide to your customers – including special sales and promotions. Through push notifications you’re getting even closer to a direct interaction, and can easily remind customers about your products and services whenever it makes sense.

3. Provide Value to Customers

Instead of sticking to the old point-collection card, make it possible for your customers to collect their rewards via your mobile app. The result? More downloads and more return customers.

4. Build Brand and Recognition

A mobile app for your business can greatly contribute to your brand awareness.

Brand. A mobile app is like a blank billboard sign. You can do what you want with it; you can make it stylish, hip, functional, shocking, or informative. But what you really want to do is create an app that has features your customers will love, while at the same time is well branded and beautifully designed.

Recognition. The more often you can get customers involved with your app, the sooner they will be inclined to buy your product and/or service.

5. Improve Customer Engagement

No matter whether you are selling flowers or spa services, your customers need a way to reach you. Having a messaging feature within your app can really make a difference in the way you communicate with your customers. Think about it: built its entire business model around this principle. Instead of calling a restaurant for a table, you can book it with less than five clicks on their platform. Now think about it: How many customers would prefer to communicate with you via text than via phone?

6. Stand Out From the Competition

These days mobile apps at the small business level are still rare, and this is where you can take a big leap ahead of your competitors. Be the first in your neighborhood to offer a mobile app to your customers. They’ll be astonished by your forward-thinking approach!

7. Cultivate Customer Loyalty

The most important reason why you should consider building your own mobile app is customer loyalty. With all the noise out, there we slowly lose our impact on customers because of the immense amount of advertising surrounding us all. It’s time to go back to making a true and sincere connection with your customers, and making them a loyal lover of your product and/or service. I am not saying a mobile app is going to save your business, but it can be a way of staying closer to your customers, and being just a “fingertip” away at all times.

Is the web dying, killed off by mobile apps?

As more and more apps become multibillion-dollar businesses. it’s tempting to see them as replacing the web, or taking over from it. This helps explain the periodic outbreak of articles about how “the web is dying”. But the truth is that, as is often the case when someone says a certain kind of behavior is dying, it’s a lot more complicated than such headlines suggest.

Everything about apps feels like a win for users — they are faster and easier to use than what came before. But underneath all that convenience is something sinister: the end of the very openness that allowed Internet companies to grow into some of the most powerful or important companies of the 21st century.”

The web pie is growing
There were a number of problems with the Wired story, however — including the fact that the chart it used contrasted the growth of video traffic with the decline of “web” traffic, even though most of that video traffic was coming from websites and web-based services. But the phenomenon it was describing was definitely a real thing, and in fact has only accelerated with the growth of apps which don’t even have traditional websites.

The Mims piece makes a common mistake by implying that the size of the web pie is finite — in other words, that mobile apps are stealing market share or user attention from the open web or the traditional browser, and therefore the web is dying. But the size of the web pie is arguably still growing rapidly, which suggests that apps are stealing attention from other things, including various kinds of offline activity.

Also, a number of people have pointed out that a huge proportion of the time spent with mobile apps is devoted either to games or to various forms of instant messaging. Since neither of those things has ever relied that much on the web , they aren’t really a conclusive sign that the web is being killed off by apps.

The more interesting juxtaposition raised by Flurry’s numbers is not apps versus web, but games and social versus everything else. YouTube and other entertainment apps form a solid percentage of what is left (8%), but the remainder is a mishmash of utilities, productivity, the aforementioned news, and, of course the web.

But one of the biggest flaws with the “web is dying” argument is that it assumes that apps themselves don’t drive more traffic to the open web — which they clearly do. Social-networking apps which consume a huge proportion of the mobile app time of many users, are at least in part about sharing links to content, and while many of these apps open links in their own in-app browsers, that still counts as web traffic.
