5 Apps for Maintaining a Successful Product Launch

Launching a new product or an app is one of the nicest feelings in the world of business, there is so much anticipation that accompanies a new idea, so much creative energy that is dying to come outside and manifest itself. Even if things don't always go as planned, there is so much learning opportunities to be had for every product that we do launch successfully.

Over the years, I have come to learn that there are certain types of applications that I always want to stick to for maintaining a healthy relationship with the needs of the product or an app, and the needs of business side of things. For that reason, I've put together a small, but concise, list of apps that I feel are necessary in order to maintain the initial launch of your new app.

I'm emphasizing the word maintaining for a reason, because it takes a different set of tools and apps to actually get to the launch of your new product, but in order to keep it alive we need to invest time and energy into finding something that will back us up when we most need it.
