Navigate the Maze of the End-User Experience and pick up this APM Essential guide, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies

Android has released a guide on how to make sure all your hard work pays off. Last year, the apps on Google Play earned $5 billion in total profit. To help all the developers how there who want in on the lucrative business, Android has released a "how-to" on what makes a Google Play App sell called "The Secrets to App Success on Google Play."

The sections are divided up into topics like how to engage and retain users, how to promote your app and get it in the public's purchases, and integrating Google Analytics into your development process. Within these sections are chapters detailing strategy and best practices.

Sure, it's a two-sided motivation; Google wants you to be successful so that they can be successful, too. The key to keeping people on Google Play is by having high-quality apps that will get people buying, after all. Plus, the guide is full of references to their products, such as making your app compatible with Wear App devices, Cast, and Android TV. And true, a lot of it is common sense, like following Google Play's policies and guidelines.

Overall, it's a valuable set of information that's consolidated onto a PDF for quick reference, and it's worth checking out to either get you motivated or to use as a checklist before you unleash your creation. Get it here.
