After a lot of research for myself, I realized that I should share the information I’ve found about all of the markets for Android Apps. There are literally dozens of them, and they all have different rules, strengths, weaknesses, and quirks.
I’ll be posting information and insights related to the app markets soon, but my attention has been on getting the data assembled and formatted nicely. I hope it can help other Android developers save a lot of time in their research, as well as get more income from their apps.
Don’t Skip Out on Extra Income
I’ll give you a hint about what’s within: if you are only distributing your app (free or paid) from the main Android Market, you are earning far less than you should from your app.
That’s not to say that throwing your app up on any market will get you riches. Some may increase your install numbers by several percent, and some may not have enough downloads to even notice. Despite the polished graphics and bold statements of some markets, I don’t think they have had much success in attracting users (and therefore low downloads for developers).
Get in Now!
And then there are the Game Changers. If you’ve been following my twitter posts, you probably noticed that I’ve been pretty excited by the explosive growth of my app now that it’s available on the Amazon Appstore. I’ve included a bit of information on Amazon as well.
If you’re interested in the report, it’s available now.
Otherwise, sign up to my email list, the ProjectJourneyman BrainCast. I’ll be spilling the details on my current research there (and putting out discount codes).
