Creating new, disruptive products requires real constraints because they force product and customer focus, which are key to building new, successful products.

Product creators must never lose sight one thing: as awesome as a product is, it is still easier for users to not use it and to continue with their current existence.

Just as a web search result page helps someone find what they are interested in, the same is true when someone searches your site and gets a results page.

A promotion and awareness plan for an application is critical to the business success of an application. Without it, you won't gain any visibility in a crowded app store.

When selecting a development firm, it really comes down to each firm’s perspective around key aspects of the project , expertise, and their own business needs.
