These are some of the things we think about for new software products
The center of gravity for anything new is now firmly mobile. Even while sitting at a desktop people will use their mobile phone because it is easier.
Products that put the user first and fill a real need. Does it make my life easier, does it save me money, why will I use it.
Is there an element of community where the product gets better as more people use it. Does it help satisfy the innate human desire to be part of a community.
Is this something I will use daily or multiple times per day. If not I am likely to forget about it.
Is the idea brand new or do people already use something else. Why will I switch.
Is this something users will feel an emotional attachment to. If I like it will I tell my friends.
We would love to hear from you
