So I've released my first app to the Google Play Store and it has like 2 installs which didn't come from my friends.
It has ads, it's a unique app but it's not getting any downloads besides those two.

Is there anyone here who does Android App development and actually generates money with it?
I could really use someone to talk to regarding this to get me started.

My goal was to get 1 download, and I did get it but I didn't have a system for it, it kinda just happend.
My goal now is 100 downloads.

What are some key points? Should I just mass produce apps to the market? Re-invent the wheel? Copy someones app? Just create stupid apps like a soundboard?

I did see someone who developed a app and there are two apps like that in that market, and both had comments about this feature missing which I could add, should I create that app?

I really do appreciate any tips that you have.
Have a great day!

Did you code everything yourself or used a template?

I code everything from scratch.
the idea i was told just re skim add advertising within the app, keep uploading more apps .

of course you need to get the app on a good position so others see it to download.

so have you got your app in a good postion to be seen , if not i am sure there services in the misc to help you get your app seen.

there huge cash in re skimming apps with added advertisement.

you're in a better place than many, your programming the apps already, learn the positioning the apps to get downloads .

read up on getting installs .

can promote thu other places surly .

try ig .

I can give you one free advice: don't focus on games (short life and small retention), don't focus also on USA market... it's nonsense without huge budget. Go with tier 2 and tier 3 countries.

What about apps that are related to gaming? So let's say a tool that helps you gain money on a game? You're not playing the actual game, but rather it's a tool that helps you make money in the game.

Interesting! I'll keep scouting the market until I find something that's not game related and that is unique.
