Managing Reviews and Updates

Most successful apps from independent developers come through a process of releasing a version and adapting to the user feedback. Users like to see a developer who is responsive. This leads to more people downloading an app, and as the number of downloads increases, it adds validity to the app.

In general, it seems about 1 in 200 people rate an application, and a small subset of those actually leaves a review. If someone takes the time to type a review, it is usually worth listening to it, especially if the review comments are constructive, such as "Doesn't work on the HTC Hero," or "Nice app, just wish it did so on and so forth."

Updates that respond to user comments are seen in a positive light by new potential customers. In any case, the reason for the update should be clearly highlighted. Most users get 10 to 20 notifications a day of applications that have updates. If they do not see a good reason to upgrade, they might not.
