Want to know how to make an app that gets lots of downloads? It starts with building something that is “very engaging and fun,” Peter Arvai, the co-founder/CEO of Prezi, the popular app for building presentations, shared explained in an interview with Forbes.

The most important lesson was understanding that the iPad app (or our iPhone app) is part of a multi-platform family of products that require a seamlessly integrative user experience across different surfaces.

Learning about the nature of how people use these devices to share ideas was very important for us in order to make the experience right.
