Gone are the days that you could submit your apps to the App Store and without much effort at all thousands of eager users downloaded it. Unfortunately, as apps have become more popular, the competition has become far more fierce. Now, quality isn't enough. Even a low price won't guarantee downloads or a listing on the top apps lists. Now, like every other type of business venture, you have to market.

iphone & ipad Apps Marketing is not a programming guide and does not give any details about how to submit your app for review. There are other books for that sort of thing. Instead, iphone & ipad Apps Marketing focuses entirely on marketing, everything from making sure you pick the correct category for your app and targeting the right audience through creating descriptions and web pages that pop to the importance of reviews and promoting your work on other social networks.

Beyond the need to market, there were several topics discussed that are extremely important. One is about the pricing debate, especially how to balance making money and attracting customers. The second is the need to create quality and quantity. There are so many apps that aren't worth the price (even when they are free). Yet, in order to keep apps from dying a natural death, new material needs to be added fairly regularly. Again, trying to do both is pretty tricky.

Oooooh, this sounds very interesting!  I run the iApps community, so I'm a huge iPhone apps fan, but have mostly only thought of apps from a user's standpoint, and not that of a developer, marketer or anyone behind the scenes.  I tend to find apps one of three ways -- 1)word of mouth, 2)tech blog, or 3)blindly typing in keywords until I find a suitable app, so that's interesting to know that there are marketing tactics for apps though.  I may just have to check this book out.  Thanks for sharing, Tami! :)
