GamaSutra survey finds discoverability to be #1 key issue facing app creators
Discoverability cited as #1 problem with app ecosystem
From this GamSutra article – In a free-form survey question, developers were asked to identify what they felt to be the biggest problem within the current app development market. Most answers connected to problems with discoverability—albeit from different ends of the spectrum. Developers frequently described app stores as “crowded” and “overpopulated with low-quality apps”; others also noted that users’ expectations for free apps made it hard to charge even $0.99 for their higher-quality app.
