Almost 800,000 apps have been developed for the Apple and Android app stores. Of these, 1 in 4 were downloaded and used just once. With so many apps out there, how do you make sure your app stands out and is used regularly? Our panelists will discuss three key areas to ensure that your application provides a great user experience and stands out from your competitors.

You’ll learn the 5 W’s tool that you can use when you define your next application.
