How to get a million users for your mobile app


We could dive straight into how you can get a million users for your mobile app but you should know the state of things first. As at the second quarter of 2018, there were about 2.9 million mobile apps in the Google Play store and 3.2 million apps in the Apple App Store by July 2018.

In 2017, mobile apps were downloaded over 178 billion times on both app stores. That figure is expected to rise as high as 258 billion by 2022.

Statistics further show that in 2018, there were over 250 apps being released to the Google Play Store every hour.

Needless to say, there’s a lot of competition out there and tight space for new mobile apps, all of which begs the question how do you get people to know about your mobile app and eventually download it?
