Q) App discovery is a negative user experience but how can it be fixed?
A) First and foremost, as avid mobile app users and gamers many of us have a MASSIVE gripe with the current crop of app stores such as Google Play and Apple’s App Store. When users visit Google Play and the iOS App Store they are presented with apps and games that they have seen a hundred of times before, its disheartening. App users can visit every day for a week, sometimes even months and see the same old stuff there.
What’s going on? Users are forced to drill down categories for hours just to find an app or game that’s interesting or different. Search isn’t much better when results are always massively skewed towards … that’s right, the most popular apps that we’ve all seen a hundred times before. App discovery at the moment on the major app stores is a mind numbingly boring and frustrating experience and its time for something new.
This is where Free Games Bandit helps, it solves this discovery problem by presenting a collection of random free games and apps to you the user. It also presents them in an exciting interactive format that feels very game like, making app discovery much more FUN.
Q) With most apps sat rotting at the bottom of the app stores how can developers level the playing field?
A) So as a mobile game and app developer you spent what seems like an age and a hefty budget on creating your latest marvel app or game and put it on the app store, did a little PR, posted to various gaming forums, told your friends, announced on Facebook / Twitter etc, maybe a little paid advertising etc.., but where are the sales and downloads?
A recent study showed that 80% of most new apps and games get buried at the bottom of the app store under the immense weight of the app stores themselves. What are your chances as a developer of being discovered? That’s right, virtually none, which is evident with how many apps on the app stores have fewer than 100 downloads. Exposure on the app stores is heavily weighted towards the developers that have the most popular apps. Who are these developers? They are the developers with the large marketing budgets that can push high volume users with existing services, which further pushes them up the charts towards fame and you down towards obscurity.
What would your downloads look like if you as a developer had the same chance of getting your app discovered as all other developers? Free Games Bandit provides a level playing field with an equal chance of all apps being discovered by users. Apps are chosen at random and presented to the user via an interactive game-like presentation, providing a fun and memorable way for users to discover apps that they would never otherwise see.
So if you are an app user / gamer looking for a new, unique and interesting way of finding new apps and games or a mobile developer looking for a fair and free way of promoting your apps then pop over to Free Games Bandit. There is no sign up required to use or add apps.
