Default Money

Hello all,

as Android is open, I am too. That's why I posted my private income made by Android apps in my Blog. Maybe this is interesting, motivating or demotivating to someone :-)

Android Money Report #1: May 11 | Android Blog

Kind regards

Johannes,

Thank you for posting this here on AF. It is a very interesting article that you've written.

I've got two apps in the Market (really four, since I have a free version and a donate version of each ).

My first app, AFV (Android File Verifier), was written to learn Android programming and to give back to the Android community, especially the root users who need to (should) check their MD5 sums and file integrity of the files they download and flash.

My second app, BattMonX, was done as a user request / challenge (LOL) from a moderator here at AF. Its been a fun project, but I have spent an inordinate amount of time updating and debugging this app compared to AFV.

My money-making "strategy" for these first two forays is / was basically non-existent since I only created the donate versions at the request of many of my users who wanted to show their appreciation.

Since my apps are not games and don't have a lot of "face time", if you will, adding advertising to the apps seemed inappropriate and probably not worth the effort.

I do look forward to someday creating an app that will make me a few dollars to help pay for my Android "hobby" (i.e., different phones and tables to develop for and play on ) and I very much appreciate the information you provided in your posted link.

Cheers!

Scott,

Welcome to the AndroidForums!

I checked-out your app that you mentioned in your Introduction post and it does indeed look very well done. My wife used to be a preschool teacher and I'm sure if she still was this would be very useful to her and the little ones.

Anyway, you are certainly welcome to post information about your app here in this forum:

Application Announcements - Android Forums

Be sure to read through this thread first, though:

http://androidforums.com/application-announcements/210153-minimum-requires-posting-thread-here-read-me.html

Our goal and hope is that you'll continue visiting AF and become a contributing member here outside of any announcement thread you might make.

Let me know if you have any questions .

Cheers!
