The app is designed to be functional and easy to operate, but the key to getting the best possible use out of it – both for buyers and sellers. It comes very handy when you are looking to buy second hand cars from motors.co.uk , they will be presented with a set of search criteria to input before actually beginning their search. The criteria that the app will ask you for takes in such areas as the type of car, your price range, where you are located, and how far you are willing to journey to look at potential cars. The app does not demand that you fill in all of these in order to search for a car, but the advantages to doing so are clear because the more relevant information you supply the more appropriate to your needs the search results will be.

One reply on “Tips for beginners to market Mobile Applicatons”
U know what there are a lots of developers who want to share the app for free (open source) but due to a problem not all free apps are available in market.Google Play Market asks for 25$ initially non refundable and we have to pay it via creditcard and many developers who dont have a creditcard couldnt publish their apps in market.So they are sharing these apps outside the market on some blogs/forums.Iam one of them.
