Does App Store or Play Market provide privileges for educational apps promotion?

Hi guys,

We're now reviewing our idea for educational app development, one of the questions is related to the mobile app promotion. As far as educational apps are usually less popular than games it is harder to promote the app within the store, so we wonder if there are any specific programs offered by Apple and Google that allow educational solutions to get to featured lists?

Thanks,
Anton

There's so much competition among the educational apps themselves, it's always a hard task to get your new app noticed. I've never heard about privileges for some types of apps on the app stores, but you definitely shouldn't ignore the traditional app marketing methods.

Hello,

Each app store has en Education section. This section is vetted way more than normal apps, for obvious reasons. So, when you submit your educational app to each store, there are more chance you might be featured as there are less educational apps, than normal apps.

My 2 cents.

Best of lucks!

I've never worked with them but I believe they have solutions for both large ip holders looking to aggregate and distribute their kid friendly apps, as well as developer centric app discovery you are looking for.

Thanks Joanan,this makes sense, but I wonder if there is a possibility to get more recognition outside of the specific educational section to drag those users who don't usually check educational apps
