9 App Store Variants Integrate directly with the mobile device's operating system Interact with hardware of phone Takes advantage of local APIs Native (On-deck) Run directly from an online interface such as a website cannot manipulate a device's hardware Limited to the web application's APIs rather than the programming packages found on the phone Third-party (Off-deck) Combine the interface and coding components of a web-based interface Functionality derived from native applications Hybrid

12 Market Dynamics: Restraints & Opportunities Lack Of Engaging Mobile ApplicationsReluctance Of Enterprises To Develop Own Mobile ApplicationsLack Of Specialized Business ApplicationsEmergence Of Alliances And Open Collaborative StoresFragmentation In Mobile Operating Systems

13 Market Participants Handset/Os Manufacturers App Developers Telecom Operators

14 To sustain competitive advantage by continuous innovation developers are crucial Developers expect full and efficient documentation on using a particular operating system, and an active community to enhance further development APIs, important part of development ecosystem greatly enhance programming efficiency, reduce the chance of bugs App Developers: Complementors To The Industry Source: Application-Edit1.jpg

15 Telecom Operators Business Models Providers can add value by granting app developers access to their APIs Making investments in the network capabilities that have the most potential to create value Imperatives And Impediments Attracting And Retaining High-value CustomersTough Competition In High-opportunity MarketDominance Of Device Vendor-owned Application StoresFragmentation Of Developer CommunityDecreasing Asp Of Applications

16 Handset/OS Manufacturers Fragmentation of OS: iOS 7 is installed on 78% of all Apple devices while Android has a far more fragmented ecosystem. Jelly Bean 4.1.x, 4.2.x and 4.3 accounts for 62% collectively, while not being the latest version. KitKat (version 4.4) is only installed on 2.5% of Android devices. Lollipop counts very less. In this scenario it has become truly important to provide compatibility as per OS. Preinstalled Apps: Preinstalled Apps have become point of attraction for many smartphone buyers. So Handset/OS manufacturers have to bundle Apps properly. So partnership with App developers or OS developers have become very crucial. Compatibility: Apps are diversifying in terms of offering. Hence phone manufacturers need to identify whether hardware provide enough room so that huge number of apps can run simultaneously without affecting its functionality. Post-sale Service: Post-sale service has become very important to provide timely app/ OS update to the user. Strategic implications: No room of operation in silo Collaboration is the key Continuous innovation Building solid partnership with other stakeholders in Industry

17 Apple: June 2014: Apple says there have been 75 billion downloads of 1.2 million apps, and reveals the App Store gets 300 million visits per week January 2015: Developers have now earned $25bn from apps in the App Store - $10bn in 2014, with $500m spent on apps in January alone. Apple says there are now 1.4 million apps (725,000 native iPad apps) in the App Store. Success Mantra : By keeping a tight rein on both the smartphone hardware and the operating system, and vetting the apps before they are allowed into the store, Apple could create a roster of high-quality, well integrated apps. For developers, access to the iPhone's premium audience is extremely attractive, especially as Apple isn't much interested in making much money off the apps, unlike mobile operators who had been the gatekeepers, deciding how apps were distributed and sold at that point. Apple makes margin mostly by selling hardware, but apps are really what creates the loyalty to the ecosystem, be it from a consumer standpoint or for developers. The Marketplace Source:

18 Android rivalry According to app analytics company App Annie, in the third quarter of last year Apple's App Store's revenue was around 60 percent higher than Google Play's. But Google Play's worldwide downloads were 60 percent higher than iOS App Store downloads - and much of that growth is coming in emerging markets. Apple leads on revenue because it still holds onto the premium market: richer consumers who can afford iPhones and are willing to pay out for apps or in-app purchases. Android has a vast consumer base but one that stretches from cheap smartphones up to high-end devices. That's not all - according to data from AppFigures, Google Play has now overtaken Apple's App Store in terms of the number of apps it hosts, and also the number of developers working on the platform. None of this of course takes into account the quality of the apps inside those app stores: Android is often criticized for the poorer quality of its apps. But it shows that Apple no longer commands the app world. The Marketplace

19 App Monetization Making money by selling data-driven advertising space in app. One can do this independently or work with a mobile ad partner. Free, But With Ads (In-App Advertising) Teasing users with a stripped down version of your app until they are hooked enough to happily buy additional features. Freemium (Gated Features) “pay then play” strategy that is propped up by your mobile marketing team’s ability to convince users to buy your app instead of free substitutes. Paid Apps (Cost Money to Download) Turning app into another sales channel (for physical products that are used in the real world) or a mobile storefront (for virtual goods which can only be used inside the app). In-App Purchases (Selling Physical/Virtual Goods) “pay later” or “free trial” model because users get to test drive the app, but then need to sign up for a subscription to bypass certain content limits and restrictions. Paywalls (Subscriptions) Advertisers gain inclusion in app by funding rewards for your users, who earn these rewards by engaging more with your app. Sponsorship (Incentivized Advertising)
