You’ve got a stellar app that’s breaking ground in new, expanding markets but you didn’t plan on such success. App design takes a tremendous amount of work and focus--nobody wants to redesign the same app twice for two or more different audiences. It's better to plan your app to work for a global audience right from the beginning.
Culturally relevant products: A global app must be culturally-sensitive! Even if different countries share a language, the tone of content and phrases can be perceived as offensive. You can't rely solely on Google translator to get an interpretation of your content. You need a team that understands differences in culture, on the ground.
Fonts that translate: The font you've selected looks perfect on the original template but the Spanish translation overruns onto the graphics or cuts off. Perhaps the app font won't translate into other languages. For example, some Greek letters don't work in Times Roman. Grab fonts that will work for several different countries and markets.
Guiding icons: Application icons need to be simple and engaging. Don't assume that users will understand what the icons mean. Do some beta testing and opt of icons that are universal.
Animate your app: What can we say? We love the animations. It's true that putting animations on an app is a bit more challenging but it's what users want. Tapping the icon, making the animation appear will make users come back again and again. Of course, you don't want an animated feature solely for the sake of entertainment (unless that's what you're going for.) However, you can animate certain features or offer animated icons in the "upgrade" version of your app.
