2. Know your competitors
Always keep an eye on your competitors.
This is the healthiest way to a successful business. Take an example of Coke and Pepsi, they have their own set of a targeted audience even after being in the same soft drink genre.
In the same way, you also need to study your competition. Search for popular pet pharmacy app developments, or pet care apps. Ask these questions to yourself when you see a competitor’s app.
- What is the focused service of the app?
- What is the uniqueness of the app development?
- What is the growth opportunity of the app?
- Which service outstands the app?
For instance, we have recent news from Crunchbase of Fuzzy, pet health app. It has raised $8million Series A, led by Matrix Partners, with total funding of $12.5 million to build new technology for telemedicine consultations.
Now, this news surely will make you believe in this genre’s revenue generation possibilities. Checkout the Fuzzy app and its offerings to the users, you might get a new idea to discuss with your mobile app solution company.
Here are some of the competitors from the online pet pharmacy segment:-

If possible, download the app and use it for a week to get a real-time check at the services. The pet tech genre is exploding with new concepts of pet health and telemedicine. Thus, being a pet care retailer or veterinary startup, this will make you understand the engagement possibilities of the users for your app.
3. List of essential features
The competitive analysis is majorly done to understand the functionalities and features that you can include in your dog app development. Looking at the competitors, it happens that you get a completely new idea.
Let’s understand this with a taxi app example, an Uber alternative startup, Indriver, recently captured the market in major countries disrupting Uberization. What made the app like Uber this popular? It simply cracked the idea of “negotiating fare” which gave more freedom to drivers and riders.
Thus, make a list of compatible features from your competitive apps and try to improvise those features. You can approach Android app development company with the list and get some modification on ideas for development.
