Launching App Icon Design

App Icons

Your App Icon will make the first impression about your App to users. An App Icon should be so inviting that the user would want to tap it all the time. The icon should convey the message about your App, be bold, beautiful and most of all memorable.

AppVersal is today launching a new service that will help you get an App Icon designed for your App. Our designers work on your App Icon and come up with interesting ideas and mockups which will further evolve into your final design. 

Read all about it on our App Icon Design page

And as always, we are looking forward to your valuable suggestions about the idea. If you have any questions, you can always reach us at support@appversal.com.

TestFlight Releases Redesigned Site

TestFlight recently underwent a major design change. Many developers consider TestFlight as a must have, due to features that cannot be found anywhere else. Prior to this update the web application was already one of the best designed in its class. However there have been small, but rather substantial tweaks and additions to enable developers to identify bugs and flaws in their updates and upcoming Apps.

In addition to this, we have witnessed a large layout change that is designed to aid developers to be more productive when testing and developing Apps. Some of these layout changes allow you to choose a dedicated table for what you are planning and currently doing. Another example of a new feature that has been added in this revamp is the addition of the “More” button, which enables developers to view their history and enable the use of testing 2 or more applications at any given time. To give yourself a good idea of these changes before you think of investing, please be sure to view the graphic on this page which demonstrates the differences between the prior and current product.

Overall we think that this new design and layout is much less cluttered and is a lot cleaner, consequently this proves to be easier on the eye. Many developers say that this allows for a more productive work flow. 

Here is the announcement on the TestFlight blog. If you don’t use TestFlight as a developer, it is time you do now. It will help you test your Apps with others before it goes live for the wider audience.

The Status of the iPad App Store After Two Years and 180,000 Apps

iPad App Store Graph to 180K Apps

It has been nearly two years since the App Store for iPad was announced and now the App Store for iPad boasts around 180,000 Apps designed specifically for the iPad. With the launch of the iPad 3, almost all developers made the big jump in terms of their icon design and started pushing out updates to bring in support for the retina display.

Distimo, an App tracking company has posted graphs demonstrating the success of the platform. As Distimo mentions, the initial boost was ben the whole concept of “universal” application was introduced which made Apps compatible with both the iPhone and the iPad.

App Downloads Every Day

The company also points out that the Apple App Store is the largest App market for tablets in the United States and that the iPad has completely transformed journalism and is now generating revenues unto $70000 for publications like the NYTimes, The Daily and more every single day.

This crazy concept of a unified application store for Apps and the devices that host them has proven to be extraordinarily successful. We all know that. Now the question that developers face is how to get spotted by users in this competitive market place? It is really hard to be discovered when you are competing in a market with over 180,000 Apps available. This is where AppVersal comes in. 

Try us and you’ll be amazed.
