Components of a Successful App – Survey Open

I’m doing some research on all the components that go into making a successful app.  Is it a good idea?  Good planning.  Good market research?  Good marketing?  Practice?  Having investment?  Living in ‘the valley’? or having a good luck charm?  My sense is a combination of the above, and a lot of hard work.

Help me out by completing this brief survey. Also – if you are interested in being a case study, please contact me directly (caroline at wipconnector dot com). Thanks!
