DEEP MARKET RESEARCH:
As a manufacture before you market your products to the public or before you begin App development, you should first of all conduct a thorough market research.

You would be able to improve on yours and try to meet their taste and maybe not repeat the flaws of other producers or copy what they have done.
This research is very essential because we find out producers tend to overlook customers review. Rarely you see a company who wants to launch their products come to ask prospective customers of their view, their likes or dislikes about the previous apps they’ve been using to see if they can use that to improve the features/qualities of theirs . I bet with these you can win your competitors customers in no distant time.
This simply implies that whatever you do as a manufacturer of products users find interest in easily, you should do it with all sincerity and accuracy. You should be able to meet customers want in mobile apps. There’s the data efficiency. yes.

DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT:
How about this time around you create something different, something spectacular, something your clients weren’t expecting. Something that when it hits the market. Boom! Everybody wants to have one.
In this modern time users wants to experience something new and not the boring qualities they have grown used to. I bet you when you do this, users would find your mobile app exclusively interesting and would want to keep them for a long while.
DON’T KEEP YOUR USERS WAITING: Another important factor to consider during your App development quest is to consider speed.
When users have to wait for a particular app to load all the time before they can make use of it can be so annoying and tiring. One can easily lose interest in such apps who possess this features. To avoid this, you can try using the loading indicators and animations to give users the assurance that the app is still working and is still waiting for their phones network.

FOCUS ON YOUR MARKETING STRATEGY:
You need to make sure you market your mobile app at the expected time. Most manufacturers fail to carry out their marketing plan effectively. Normally, manufacturers should start app marketing at least before 2-3 weeks of the launch to let their users know.
TEST YOUR APP BEFORE IT HITS THE MARKET:
It’s essential for you to test your mobile app before you launch it to the market. App development comes with many cons, one of which is bugs. As a manufacturer, your app should be easy and simple to operate and users should be able to understand it. Testing your apps before launching enables you to amend or add where necessary.
