Apparently , the apps that are getting uninstalled are the ones that:

  6. Apps that require too much time/effort to figure out. “It’s the UX, [stupid]!” If the journey to the happy place of mastering the app is too complicated, unclear.
  7. For freemium apps: forcing the “but there’s more” too often, too pushy [and requiring too many clicks to exit the “buy more” loop.
  8. Still on freemium: too much, too frequent “rate me, please rate me. aren’t you having so much fun with me? please rate me.”

Sounds just so correct and out of the field experience.

What would you add?

All the credit to the wise –
