This event will be hosted in the partnership with SF Mobile Entrepreneurs Community ( We are going discuss 'app stickiness' and what really makes users come back to an app again and again.




Statistics show that 96% of apps you have on your smartphone will not be there in a year. You wonder why? Well, they just don't stick. Our speakers will present two different sides of the coin:

• Mike Rollins and Alexandra Friedman from Flurry, a market-leading analytics software for smartphone and tablet apps. They will talk about mobile analytics and how it helps entrepreneurs understand users better.

• Siqi Chen from Heyday, a mobile startup featured by Apple in Editor's Choice and highlighted among the best iOS apps of 2013 on TechCrunch. Siqi will share his experience on using analytical service to increase user retention.

We are also very excited about having Kate Rutter on board. Kate who is an expert in Lean startups and UX for startups will be interviewing Siqi Chen from Heyday.

Join SF Mobile Entrepreneurs meetup to learn about mobile apps that really stick!
