    Hey everyone I am mobileguy or dev101 on the android market. I develop apps mostly for myself and maybe friends every now and then. Recently I made an app for the android called Gomp3 it is a free app so I am using ads to make money. And I wanted to keep an online journal for everyone here so I can share my journey to riches or if this turns up to be nothing.

    If you want to see what the app is about (if the name doesn't say it all) just go to the google play store and search gomp3 (just like that and its the only one that pops up) music.png and then you get this little icon. I can not post the link yet to the google play store since I am still too new on here. But if anyone wants it and can't find the app pm me and i will send it to you.


    Some screen shots so you can see what it is about

    Okay now down to some good stuff. It has been about 1 week now since I published the app on the play store, it is averaging about 23.8 downloads a day so lets round up to 24. So far all I spent were the $25 to become a google publisher and lots and lots of time making this app. My ads on the app have had about 800-1000+ impressions a day. That is a $3.00. Now that is not a lot at all. But my hope is that as more people download it more money will come in. I am using admob for those of you who might want to know. My ultimate goal for this app is to be making 200+ a day if I can, so far I am very short of that goal. But this is only week 1 after all, lets see how week two goes shall we? I will post week 2 results soon. For now my goal has fallen very short but not giving up yet. Also for those looking to go in the app business it is a very hard business if your publishing your own apps. However you can make it big if your app catches on, which is what I am hoping my app will do. if your a developer making apps for people your in decent shape. Well this is week 1 all comments and feed back is welcome.


    Thank you

    Dev101/mobileguy

    Sounds good, keep this thread updated & stay focused.

    Did you distribute your app anywhere else, besides the Google AppStore? There are also some other markets as I know, and some other app directories/pages.

    1) You won't make 200$/day with this single app 2) Don't use Admob which shaves you as hell, go for mobile cpa offers. (Kissmyads, Offermobi, etc.) 3) Make more apps, take care about market SEO and upscale and you're on your way for 200$/day.

    Thank you everyone for all the feed back. Sorry I have not updated regularly, I have had a lot of ups and downs. Recently gomp3 was suspended off the google play store for infringement reasons (my guess it was the icon or something about the app its self not the downloading free music part) we have made a new app in its place called MP3 Titan. So far gomp3 has netted me over $40 and at its peak was getting 300+ downloads a day. Also at peak I was making $6.00 a day as well. Now the good news is that gomp3 should be up on the amazon app market soon (so anyone with a kindle should be able to download it) I will post a google rant in a new thread soon disusing the banning of my app. In further detail and get some feed back on it. I am trying to fight it back to get gomp3 back up and running it will be a while so hopefully Mp3 titan should do for now. I still have gomp3 apk file and I plan on torrenting it and getting out that way as well. Hope that is a good idea if not its not no harm no foul i guess.


    For anyone who wants mp3 titan it is on the googlle play store just look it up it's a green play button with headphones around it.

    I make mobile apps..hit my high point of 197.98 yesterday....go me!!!!...any ways I have my own little method but start looking at push notifications and other ads like tapgage. I dont use this stuff but it has potential....also use upload your app to androidpit. Appbrain..amazon market...and 9ther markets.....you could also pay per dl at appbrain its .20 a install...kind of expensive but if you can make it worth it then its not bad I guess. Also if your using admob look into using some house ads to promote your own cpa...sorry about yhe spelling and grammar..using my phone
