Posted: Apr 25, 2016
With a rise in android mobile takers and widespread and easy connectivity offered by mobile network operators, android app development in India sees a great potential. Problem solvers and android app developers have successfully tapped the market by introducing apps targeted towards solving widely faced problems. Indian users have responded quite well too, as India secures a third rank in terms of android app downloads. Google, the maker of Android, realizing the huge potential of the Indian market, has decided to introduce the 'tap to translate' feature, this year. The feature will let users speaking different languages, to translate Hindi or English text into their preferred vernacular.
Thus, with the capabilities of android and receptivity of Indian users, building an android app or developing an android app idea, can not only make profits but also solve problems of various kinds. Let us see which kind of android app models have been successful, giving you ideas upon which the next successful android app can be built with the help of android app development services:
Communication Apps – Android applications which allow you to stay connected with friends and family with special emoticons and stickers have been a hit. Indian players such as Hike Messenger have yet not been able to fully replace WhatsApp usage, but have been able to stay in the market with innovative revenue models such as tying up with brands which are favorite among their young customers. There is scope of such apps which particularly facilitate easy communication for non-english speakers and owners of cheap android phone sets.
Apps Which Replace The Middle Man- House or room renting apps serve to save your broker bills, ultimately making finding a room or a house for rent, easier and cheaper. Apps aiming to replace the middle man also extend to other sectors such as finding domestic help and finding the right employees. In earlier times, we saw agencies in such sectors. But apps such as BabaJobs, which connects domestic helpers directly with the ones who need domestic help, and employment apps such as Naukari, have done a great job in replacing the middle-man. A potential problem-solver can create an app which connects domestic helpers with house owners, directly, covering a specific area of residence.
Social Apps – Now, love can be found on dating apps such as Tinder. Social apps such as TapaTalk which allow you to connect with people with similar interests. Earlier this year, a young graduate from Mumbai garnered funding for a dating app, especially meant for the disabled.
Booking Apps- Seats in almost all modes of transport, including the humble auto and even the Indian gigantic train, can be booked via seat-booking apps. Booking apps have even extended to hotel rooms and restaurant tables. A potential problem-solver can develop an auto, taxi or bus booking app which covers their town or city of residence.
Thus, great many opportunities exist for people who wish to tap the Indian android market through a problem-solving app.
