I WANT AN ELEPHANT, creative app store explorers from Germany
Three guys from Stuttgart, Germany, are behind the independent development studio I WANT AN ELEPHANT.

Creating a mobile application is challenging. With the target audience in mind, the pure coding and layout requires some time, while the marketing andpromotion for an app is the biggest challenge. “You can create and release the best app ever, but very likely – no one will ever notice it”, Roman Mnich explains.
„You need a good app concept, perfect usability, a release plan, best case a community, the right keywords, press kits and good localized descriptions to name a few things “, André Voltmann notes and Matthias Krause adds “…and this has to be an active constantly improved and maintained process”.
Currently the team has three mobile games published on the App Stores. Antroad, kind of memory, puzzle and skill game with nice hand drawn graphics is available since November 2015.
