As more users harness the power of mobile and appoint mobile apps for everyday entertainment, most of the time it is assumed they go viral automatically. But sadly, no!

Sharing quality content is a single shared principle on all social media networks. Inspite of creating a piece of high quality content related to your app in mind that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to write an advertisement and then start pushing it in people’s faces. Rather, it should be creative.

Review Your App and Share It

They’re going to need to hear that your app is awesome only if you submit your app to various sites for review. This includes: AppCraver, My Daily App, iPhone.AppStorm and Big App Show. The more people you can convince to share, be it a Re-tweet, or a blog post or on StumbleUpon, Reddit, or Digg, the more momentum your app will gain.

Fan Page for your app

No doubt Facebook is the social media king which is why you need to make sure your app has a home base on it. Create a fan page and get to work on getting as many Likes as possible. You might also try getting more fans through giveaways and other types of contests thus engaging your followers.
