I'm still in the "Validation" stage of my IH journey. However, seems like every time I find a potential good idea, a quick google search shows me that there are at least 2-3 apps with the same exact idea/solution as me and is a fully fledged app with millions of downloads and positive reviews. I guess this means that the idea is "validated" since people are downloading these apps and are willing to pay monthly fees.
I know that this means the current niche/space has a good size audience and is large enough to support competition, but I can't help to think why a new customer would choose my future MVP app over something that is fully fledged. I feel that even though I solve the "pain" points of these apps in my MVP, customers would choose something that is fully fledged rather than some MVP that solves a minor pain point. Is it time to move on to a different idea then?
