    Hey

    We make around $130 per day from Android apps stuffed with ads. Any tips from more successful devs? Any questions from less successful ones?

    What type of apps you doing? Which ad network are you with? Leadbolt is the best option

    I would love to know more on the technical part on this business. Developer tools / outsourcing to developers. Thanks.

    I'm doing apps like fake internet booster, fake android phone booster, wifi hacker, other than that some retro games batteries (if they don't take it down cuz of IP rights it's doing pretty well), battery and clock widgets (these are not so successful, unless rly original and a hit).

    We're working with startapp, airpush and leadbolt but we have the lowest results with LeadBolt now, it got pretty low since September.

    We're developing in Eclipse, not outsourcing to anyone. We have our own programmer.

    I'd love to see ur input about what types of apps could be successful at this moment.

    I'll check it Bartono

    Why do you think Leadbolt is producing less these days? I would like to hear all of they ways you all are monetizing your apps. What's your idea Bartono? Sounds interesting.

    ATM we have 21 apps on the store, but I'd say only about 13 are providing significant money.

    Average total downloads on these 13 apps is 36 592

    Ah because in your first post you stated that your android apps are Stuffed with ads.
