Every once in a while we feel the need to remind you all that it is not acceptable to steal content.
Sadly, this is a true story. Many app makers create apps that simply are copies of some else’s content, and Google bans these app makers from GooglePlay. Using content that belongs to someone else, or including using their brand name in your app, is nothing short of theft. Copyright violations on the web are taken seriously. Just because the web is thought to be public, since everyone can see content, doesn’t mean you can place it in an app and pretend it is your own.
There is more to creating your own content than just wanting to avoid copyright infringement laws. You want your app audience to take your brand seriously, and to build credibility. This is not possible if you are faking it from day one. Unique content shows your audience that you know your stuff, and that your business is a genuine business which will support its app users, and provide them with the best content.
Don’t start your app career by ruining your app business’s reputation. Don’t take the risk of having your app removed from GooglePlay. Create your own content for your Free Android app.
AppsGeyser offers you a number of ways to turn content into apps. You can use AppsGeyser’s easy to use templates to create an app from your existing content, or you can create new and exciting content from scratch.
How to create content without breaking copyright laws
Your content needs to grab the attention of your app users from the moment they see your brand in the app store. Your screenshots on your download page should highlight the best of your app content. To make sure your app content is original, and will capture your audience’s attention, you need to make sure your app content is:
Eye catching: Those first words should alert the user to the tone and style of the content.
Friendly: The language you use should suit your audience type.
Newsworthy: Make sure the content is up to date and interesting.
Time-bound: Content that is old is boring or content that is too long will get a poor review.
Grab inspiration for fresh content by doing the following:
Start Reading: Books, magazines, online blogs, anything that is subject related. Grab some ideas and note them down.
Brainstorm: Get some inspiration from friends and colleagues. This can help bring some new and creative ideas to the table.
Training: Do some extra training in your field of expertise. The new materials that you learn may give you some ideas.
Networking – Your social networking friends are good sources of ideas for new content.
You want your app to not only attract an audience but to have an element that will engage your audience so that they will want to keep coming back. You can use a range of methods, such as daily quizzes, or different discussions that will provoke a reaction in the audience, making them want to engage.
