To save your user details in one place, you can integrate Google Sheets spreadsheets with your app. This way, details of all the users who would register to your app will automatically be saved in your Google Sheets document. You can use Appy Pie’s automation software – Appy Pie Connect to get this done right.
Although there are multiple methods of staying connected with the users and getting feedback from them. Making your social account your main feedback channel helps prospects see how you handle your customer issues and how you value them. This improves your brand reputation and conversion rates.
To make your app one of the most downloaded apps, you must listen to your app users. Address users’ concerns received from various feedback resources like metrics, app reviews, feedback, and complaints.
Visit different app stores and check what all the successful app makers are doing to make their app a winner. To emulate your competitors, you must download a few of their apps and see their features and functionality. Make sure your app has everything that they lack.
Test your app before you publish it and fix the issues that could ever spoil the users’ experience. Even if you get any issues reported by the users after you have published your app, try to fix them at the earliest.
