    I’ll go first again then :-) @SoulShading – l3gum4n at hotmail dotcom As a developer, I would participate in AppUp because it is an opportunity to reach millions of people and show them how great my application is! :-D

  • Twitter @blessedta A great application allows me to manage my tasks i.e Excel

    Aloha from Hawaii, Mahalo for the chance to win an HP Netbook! I am super interested in learning how to develop apps. I am a teacher and it is hard to find good education apps for some reason. I look every day. Young students like good graphics and music. If it’s an academic app they like a variety of fun rewarding games after they have passed a level. @Blurcat4

  • Ali

    Greetings from chilly Florida! A great app is anything that makes my life easier, and it should be fun to use. I would also get my husband to participate in AppUp, because he’s the developer in the family :) @weeblet

  • Bessamy

    I believe what makes a great app is a combination of elements. Not just one single element. When the graphics go with the sound and fit into the application’s other elements and combine to make something really unique is when you really have something good. Twitter is @Bessamy.

  • born2tech

    The most important things that make an application great are stability, ease of use , and content. True , great graphics, music and sound all enhance an application and make a real difference in an application but if your game or application is difficult to figure out, is buggy and doesn’t have any really solid content or features then all the flashiest graphics and sound aren’t going to save it.

    A great application is one that is simple, yet complex in terms of being able to do a lot. Ease of use is probably the most important thing @mistercharley

  • Jcman7

    What I think makes a great application is one that has a good UI, it has to be clean and clear and give the user a sense of ease and quality. I want something that is simple and not to crazy in design. I think if you can make something user friendly then everyone will be happy. Graphics are important, people are visual and we like things that look nice, its human nature. You can tell when an application has had a lot of effort into it or it was just thrown together time is the key part in making something good. Tweered @JCman7 Liked on FB: James D.

  • What makes the best app is speed. No one likes to wait for a program to load. I am not a developer.!/dasasc1971/status/12535869655220224 Sctt Martin dasasc1971

    A great app has good graphics, easy to use but entertaining or fun/ makes my life easier and DOESN”T make me feel like an idiot.

  • Melinda S

    A combination of elements made a good application. This is a difficult question, it’s like what makes a person good? It has to be EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT!!! I’m not a developer however my husband is and he is following this discussion via my account :-)

  • Graphics are nice, but a great application for me is all about content and functionality. Does it make the system easier, more fun to use? If so, then give me that app! @BenZee on Twitter.

  • oskat

    A great application is one that runs smoothly and has fantastic graphics! @oskat oskatontwitter [at] yahoo [dot] com

  • Facebook: Janine Brotzman email janeener (at) gamil (dot) com A great application should have an easy user interface so people don’t get confused. Graphics are nice, but don’t mean a whole lot to me. I just want an application to do what it says it’s going to do!

  • Bethie0526

    Easy to figure out and use!

  • For me, a great productivity app is one that is functional, stable, and benefits me in a mobile environment. A great gaming app should have great graphics and utilize the capabilities of the device designed for. I shared on twitter as @slates96 slater112203 at gmail dot com

    A great application needs to do one function and do it well.Whether that be video editing, email, word processing, etc. @agordon10

    What makes for a great application for me is having a app that is user friendly and easy to use. I love great graphics, but ease of use is the most important to me. I’m a FB friend (Margaret E. Smith) Thanks so much for this super giveaway. What a prize! Thanks. rickpeggysmith(at)aol(dot)com

  • Great apps demonstrate wholeness, harmony and radiance (app-ologies to St. Augustine!) Wholeness- meaning it doesn’t sour customers by requiring dozens of updates to reliably function after being released. Harmony- plays well with others and doesn’t crash, kludge or befuddle my other apps. Radiance- possess unique utility that brings me back frequently, recommend it to friends and colleagues, and search for new opportunities to use it. I’m Following, FB liked and tweeted!

  • a great app is something that is easy to use and makes my life easier. I’m not a programmer at all so an app has to be simple to understand and simple to use. buddhistmom at gmail dot com @_mongoose on twitter :)

  • Nelson

    A good application consist of the feeling that the developer took the time to test it out and refine it in a matter that it seems to do everything needed, glitches are removed and it is people friendly. @ipodxoxo

  • A great application would have a nice UI , good graphics, and a smooth experience, even on a slow computer. Twitter: MattPalmerr Facebook: Matt Palmer matt.palmer (at) gmx (dot) com

  • Dorothy

    @dorothyrivera In order for an application to be great it do more than the competition and provide update to stay ahead of the pack.

  • A great application to me is easy to use, not confusing. It helps me accomplish the tasks at hand. I tweet as DotMarie1 and liked as Dorothy Sandman. Thank you for the chance to win!

  • I need gifts to give to others and well, I dont have any… lol

  • KoOne23

    What makes a good application needs a perfect physics. It needs the feeling of playing a game that should be played the right way. And of course, graphics plays an important part. However, DLC never interests me, instead it encourages me to NOT buy apps with DLC. Especially when we paid for a game, then it wants us to PAY again within the app for more contents. RT’ed @KoOne23

  • @Songbirdeeee

    An application is only as good as its underlying concept. If the concept is not original or in some way unique then it won’t be worth very much. And original idea or a nice twist on an older idea will make for a great selling point and will please the users. Once the concept is covered then all the smaller, but still important details come into play. The graphics will really help out and a nice UI is a must. The instructions (if there are any/if needed) should be presented in an easy to understand manner and it would be preferable if not too many were presented at once. It is also a really good idea to make it such that the instructions can be revisited at any time in case the user opens the app and then doesn’t use it for a bit or another user tries to use it. Music is important based upon what type of app it is. The prompt question doesn’t state whether or not we’re talking about a game… In games, well suited music is necessary and the ability to switch to one’s iPod library music is a good idea since no matter how good your music for the game is, you can’t always please everyone’s individual taste. In none game apps, music may or may not be so necessary. I apologize if this is formatted funny, i’m typing this on my iPad and for some reason it looks like it may not come out so great once I hit the post button. Thank you for the awesome contest, I hope I adequately answered the question. Will retweet the post about is contest on twitter. Thank you, @Songbirdeeee

    A great app is something that makes life easier. Kind of like “If I dream it, an app will be created”. That’s what I think makes a great app.
