by App My Site DIY App Builder

Are you thinking of increasing your brand reach? Make your own iOS app via AppMySite to have it featured on Apple’s App Store. 

With an app, you can get all the extra exposure you wish to generate instantly. 

In this post, we are sharing seven tips that can help you in getting your mobile app featured on Apple’s App Store:

1. Create an amazing app

Apple generally receives a thousand app submissions every day. 

With this in mind, make sure you build an exceptional app if you want to get your app featured in the App Store page results.

Avoid adding too many features and functionalities in the app because Apple only gives preference to mobile apps that can serve its very motive and perform well.

Create the best app that can stand out amongst your competitors. 

2. Get high app ratings

Your app must have high user ratings as it is the primary parameter for Apple to increase your app discoverability. 

If your app has positive reviews, Apple will consider it, thinking that your app works great for users. 

The best way to do so is to incorporate an incentivized prompt into your app. With this approach, you can increase your user base, which further helps you in fetching good reviews. 

Added to that, if you generate media buzz, the chance for your app to get featured on the App Store will increase. 

3. Empower your app’s user interface

If your app is getting frequently downloaded, Apple will likely consider featuring your app. This means a high number of app downloads are critical for strengthening your chances.

Your app screenshots are one of the main components that are used by consumers to assess whether to download the app or not. If users like what they see, they will simply download your app.

This is where your app’s user interface comes at the forefront. Your app’s UI should be simple, logical, and aesthetically pleasing. Moreover, it should be easy-to-use.

Therefore, ensure a useful UI on your app to get it featured on the App Store.

4. Build multi-platform app

Apple is likely to give more prominence to apps that are compatible with all their devices. Therefore, make sure you build your mobile app in such a way that it can run on any iOS device, be it an iPhone, iPad, or even Macs. 

However, if you want to stack the odds in your favour further, consider developing an iOS mobile app. Apple also dedicates a section of the App Store to iOS-exclusive apps because most developers build their apps for both iOS and Android. The chances of featuring your app in this section is considerably more significant. This could help you increase your iOS app users.

5. Use new technologies

Apple always seeks innovation. In that case, if your app can make use of their ground-breaking features, you will gain favor in Apple's eyes. For some apps, this is considered as a fast-track ticket to get featured in the App Store.

Keep your app updated with any significant features that Apple announces. Apple likes to showcase apps that are upgraded with these updates. If you can integrate these updates into your app, your chances of featuring increases. 

6. App monetization

Remember, Apple always needs to keep its shareholders happy. The more your app can help them in generating revenue, the more attention they will give to your app. 

If you are launching your app with no monetization strategy, it will not make Apple ask for that. 

However, if you want your app to get featured in the App Store, you need to come up with a coherent strategy for app monetization.

7. Special events

Featuring an app in the App Store is difficult at the best of times, especially during special occasions. It is quite tough as Apple gives relevant apps a priority at this time.

If your mobile app is related to the event, you can grab this chance. If not, then the competition is even fiercer than usual.

Try not to release a general iOS app three or four weeks before any event or festival, like Christmas. 

Wrapping up

Getting a mobile app featured is quite tricky. Moreover, it will take a certain amount of perseverance to succeed. 

Nevertheless, by following these tips, you can ensure every possible chance of featuring your iOS mobile app in the App Store.
