Of course, your app is popular when it’s being used by many people. But why would these people use your app? Because it valuable to them! That is why as founder of AppSpecialisten I have already empowered hundreds of ideas to become apps that improve lives. How? Well, online you will find the knowledge to do this too on www.AppSpecialisten.nl (in Dutch). Or will I see you during the Appril event?
