Consider your competition who may be using Mobile Apps strategically to give secret, exclusive promotional offers to their loyal app users, which an outsider would never know.
Efficiency & Space:
Considering most mobile phones still use 3G & 4G data along with very limited space in its mobile memory, you have to be extremely cautious about how you craft your mobile app. It has to be efficient in terms of data consumption and space usage for installing and running the app. Nothing can be more annoying than an app freezing every now and then whenever you want to use it.

The last thing your customer wants is excessive spamming from your app trying to push sell. Instead, talk to them gently, lure them to an offer they will thank you for notifying them.
Not Using the Acquired Database:
One of the reasons you should have an app in the first place is because you can hold on to your customers. They will put in their mobile numbers and email and they will be in your list forever. Apart from sending regular emails that you send the rest of your email list, incentivize your app users for being loyal to you and installing your app. Notify them about new updates, incentivize for updating.
Trying to be Master of All:
Niche strategy is the key to the success for most apps unless you have deep pockets like Amazon. Finding the right audience for your product and knowing what they want and developing the whole app around that can be the game changer.
Internet Connectivity Management:
