Want to be a successful developer on the Android platform? There may be one major factor you are overlooking in your software business strategy.

Top 5 Keys To a Successful Android App

  1. It can be moved to the SD card.
  2. It can be moved to the SD card.
  3. It can be moved to the SD card.
  4. It can be moved to the SD card.
  5. It can be moved to the SD card.

I hope that was clear enough.

You see, when your app MUST be installed on the phone, it has to compete with all of the must-have apps that are already on my phone. After you install the Google Maps app, a weather app, a navigation app, and a handful of others like maybe the Facebook app. When I run low on space, and I will run low on space, which apps do you think get deleted first? It’s not Google Maps, I’ll tell you that much.

Widgets Prevent Moving to SD Card

I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to say that if you have a widget that it can’t be moved to the SD card.

Code your app so that it CAN be moved to the SD card if we don’t use the widget. I don’t need anymore widgets. I have plenty.

If you want your app to get a fair shot, make it as small as possible and make it movable to the SD card.

After spending a month getting Seesmic Desktop, Seesmic Web, and Seesmic App all setup just the way I want them, I am very happy with the software. But, I downloaded TweetDeck to my phone, because if I can move it to the SD card, I would switch without hesitation.

(Unfortunately, TweetDeck will not move to the SD card. However, it clocks in a 1.84 MB for the application and Seesmic is 4.01 MB. Looks like I’ll be moving from Seesmic to TweetDeck unless TweetDeck is missing some function I can’t live without.)
