You may really want to create an app but are not sure what kind to create. There are so many possibilities. I've done both utility apps and games and have some insights into this area.
In this week's episode I ask and give my advice on the question . . . what kind of app should you actually create?

Hi! This is a minute of Overpass. My name is Eric and I make apps. Now this week, I wanna ask, what kind of app should you actually make?
Okay, so, what kind of app should you make? Now you might be at the beginning stages and you have a few ideas and you haven't created an app yet and you try to think, you know, what kind to make. I'll just give you some of my experience on this. We've done both normal apps, utility apps, and we've done games. So, what I find is that games are much more difficult to do. Not only are they more difficult to do in terms of coding and think of all the eventualities, and making sure they're fun and not too repetitive but you also can't charge very much for them. We're talking about sixty nine P, maybe a pound. Or you try to make money through ads and you have to hope that it really goes viral. You have to hope that it really catches on. However, with utility apps, if you make something very useful, you're basically taking somebody's phone and turning it into something better than it was when they found it. So, for example, with Ear Spy, we're taking somebody's phone and we're turning it into like a super spy device or even just a hearing aid, or better yet, we're turning that user from just a normal person into a potentially a spy. Which is kind of exciting but is also something that when they're going through, when they run out of disk space on their phone and they start removing apps, when they see your icon, you kind of want them to say, "No, I might still need that.", which you might not do with a game. Don't get me wrong. People do some really good games out there and they do make a lot of money from it, however, my advice is if you're thinking about an app idea to begin with is, if you have a really good utility idea that's not out there already, that makes people’s lives easier, go with that. I mean, that would just, you know, you could charge more for it, you find the right niche, and people really go for that. So that's it for this week's minute of Overpass.
