Developing iphone Apps: Ideas & Resources Part 2

Updated on February 20, 2016

Top 10 iphone App sites worth reviewing

Have you ever wanted to research or know in detail about a topic or a new interest but don't know where to start?

Well you have come to the right place. I am a researcher and find myself investigating or working on a wide range of projects and more often then not over the course of a few weeks i have compiled large amounts of information. so I have decided to share some of the resources i have found in my hubs.

This Hub Page is the second in a series i am planing called " Developing iphone App Ideas Resources" i wanted to use a short and focused hubs format as i am not fond of large amounts of text and with the variety of topics in the development of Apps makes this a practical solution.

In my last hub "Developing iphone App Ideas Resources" i outlined websites, books and links that provides a overview of the world of iphone Apps and how to generate and refine your ideas. Now during this len i will outline links which will enable you to do more in detailed research and refinement of your idea.

FOCUS:

Refinement of ideas by looking at similar apps & features

Step 1

Once you have an idea for an app the new step is to do a in depth analysis. Here i have provided links to some of the most useful reviews website i have found. First pick a few of the site that you are comfortable using.

Step 2

Start searching for similar apps and note the results and developers. Begin to compile a list or database of the results.

Step 3

Once you have compiled the information a comparative analysis can be done in terms the pro & cons of there feature.

Features to note:

  • Design & layout
  • Price points vs free or lite version
  • Category and potential cross overs
  • Reviewers comments & social media results (FB or twitter follower)

Top 10 iphone review sites

By no mean is this an extensive list or a ranking of the sites themselves but these are just some of the most useful and well designed site i have come across.

During this process, you will also generate new criteria for comparisons, i generally start with a few and let then grow, it quite a creative and organics process. but eventually you will have that eureka moment of that killer app, with great design & features.

HINTS:

The key is to not plan one app but maybe two for a second version so as not to add too many "bells & whistles" to your app.

Also keep in mind and always ask yourself what problem or niche does your app solve. or whats cool about it.

Note: Although i have focused on iphone Apps but the method and resources can also be applied to ipads, itouch and Android Apps.

      Nice list of iPhone app review sites. You might have missed one authoritative review site, btw, - Tapscape. It has a PageRank of 5 and an Alexa rank of less than 63k.

      Hope it helps!
