Buildpan knows it well how hard it takes to update a mobile application and we are all aware of the more frequent bug fixes and user experience increases the user retention.
Applications being frequently updated are more valued not only by customers but also by App Store and Google Play. But still, how often should you update your iOS app (as well as the Android one)?
In principle, there are several quite simple alternatives:
- Regular updates. It means there is a certain system of mobile app updates.
- Out of necessity: bug fixing, new feature release, and so on.
- At will (you update your app whenever you want, without any schedule).
The first two items seem more correct. After all, everything needs its own system. Moreover, you should coordinate the new feature development with a planned update release.
However, what is regular? Once a week, a month, a year? What should you take into account when determining the app update frequency?
As you see, launching a specific application is extremely important, you need to prepare for it, and yet… yet, it is just a single event. And even if you have gotten the first powerful wave of loyal users after the app creation, the download rating will gradually decrease. And regular updates, with the correct approach, is the solution to this problem, for they can help to revive old users and attract new ones.
