    i am interested in knowing how much money and time a developer has to sink in to make an android game or an app ?
    i play android games a lot on my phone so i was wondering how how time and resources have to be dedicated to make games like Where's My Water and Angry Birds and also rpg games for android . anyone have actual figures or estimate ?
    also can one have a viable career in developing for the Android platform ? how profitable is it ?

    total guess:
    depends... on too many factors.

    It's going to vary quite a bit depending on what the app does, scale of the game, experience of the programmers, etc. I think for the bigger games the budget is in the hundreds of thousands range and take a team a year or longer to finish.
