Pluggd.in team is glad to announce the next edition of Appnomy Conference, an event that goes beyond the technology of apps and brings together the app ecosystem. By app ecosystem, we mean not just app developers, but also operators, OEMs and a whole lot of entrepreneurs who make the app ecosystem what it is.
The Current State of App Ecosystem in India
Pretty much nothing has changed over the last few years. The indie app developer community in India has been growing, but the number of app developers who are going full-steam and looking at building app business (*entrepreneurship*) is far from being termed ‘good enough’. So what’s lacking?
– Even operators who till last year were marketing their app stores have gone slow in marketing apps and app stores. Why is that?
– As an app developer, do I align myself to one of the ‘app stores (or the mafia)’? Or should I go and be present everywhere (specifically Android/Windows Phone/iOS/Blackberry etc).
So what’s the way forward?
In India, if we look at a typical app developer’s mindset – for them, app development process ends with submitting the app in the app store. There hardly is any marketing/sales effort, and most of the times its ‘spray and pray’ approach.
We, at Pluggd.in, believe that this needs to be changed. App developers need to really look at app development as any other product business and that’s the notion we’d like to bring on. And with this belief, we bring, the second edition of Appnomy Conference.
