To succeed in the mobile application exhibitions, you should avoid some specific bugs and pay attention to the investment of your applications.

First, some people think that they only need to update their applications on the app store, that would mean those apps will succeed. But this ideal is wrong, your application will be popular when you bring it closer to the market and users. At this time, what you need to do is make updates or teasers on social networks, websites, blogs or email. That’s how businesses attract users and make them desire to use the application. We have to reach the customer step by step and please ensure that they know about your product before it is brought to the market.

You can even provide ways to encourage (such as discounts, gift vouchers, unlock the application features, etc …) to encourage users to re-evaluate your application and rearranged according to the most recent time.

Typically, most developers only pay attention to improve the mobile application and wait for the revenue.
