I AM NOT WRITING A LOT LAST TIME BUT YOU SHOULD READ IT.

This is new Google Play policy called by some people "playarmageddon".

"
We don't allow apps that merely provide the same experience as other apps already on Google Play. Apps should provide value to users through creation of unique content or services.

Here are some examples of common violations:
  • Copying content from other apps without adding any original content or value.
  • Creating multiple apps with highly similar content and user experience. If these apps are each small in content volume, developers should consider creating a single app that aggregates all the content.
Apps that are created by an automated tool, wizard service or based on templates and submitted to Google Play by the operator of that service on behalf of other persons are not allowed. Such apps are only permissible if they are published by an individually registered developer account belonging to the user of the automated tool, not the operator of the service."

...but after 7 years of experience in Android Market and Google Play, I can say, this policy and crying people are total bullshit.

Reskin is not dead, because:
-Google needs to review apps manualy in huge database to verify repeat content, it's not possible! They would need to hire 50k people to review 2000 new apps daily and they would still make mistakes
-I am still spamming Play Store as before this policy and have good results, zero bans
-yes, we have still AI, so our reskins needs to be more careful:
+change graphics
+change resource files names
+change java code, mostly names of variables, methods, classes
+change string resources
+change Android Manifest
+change libraries versions in build.gradle

Still we can make copyright keywords abuse, spam and all blackhat activity, even Google says you cannot. Personaly, I am not reading Google Policy for years but this time, I need to share my opinion because on forums, reddit and discord channels, I see a lot of tears and panic. Do not panic! When I see such policy and my activity last months, even after policy, I laugh very hard.
This means, our perfect reskin is unique for every AI.


So why is that policy and who can be harmed?
-this is against people, who are uploading hundreds or thousands apps on ONE account with same engine and different content. I see many guys with fonts for Samsung, account with few thousands apps and one font each app. Also, this is against radio, icons, game guides spammers. I see one guy have 300+ apps and every app called Music Player with some keyword variation, it's the same app, same screenshots and promo images, only title is different

IF YOU HAVE 20 APPS / ONE ACCOUNT AND EVERY APP IS JUST RESKIN FROM CHUPAMOBILE, SELL MY APP, CODECANYON - YOU ARE SAFE

-of course you see crying on Reddit because someone is banned for repeated content, it's AI mistake. We have 200k+ android devs and almost 3mln apps, it's normal that AI will make mistakes and harm WHITE HAT DEVELOPERS.

FOR MASS RESKINNERS AND SPAMMERS, IT'S NO PROBLEM IF YOU LOOSE ONE APP OR ONE ACCOUNT IF YOU HAVE DOZENS OF ACCOUNTS!



WHAT ABOUT DOWNLOADS?
-first, if you are mass reskinner with TOOLS like build flavors and you are making dozens of hundreds reskins/spam publication/month, it's not important if you get max 1000 installs for your app!

PARETO SAYS 20% OF YOUR APPS WILL MAKE 80% INCOME! YOU CAN MAKE 50 APPS BUT 51TH WILL BREAK YOUR BANK! WITH BLACKHAT METHODS OF COURSE YOU CAN INCREASE YOUR CHANCES.

So DO NOT GIVE UP AFTER UPLOADING 1-10 APPS AND DO NOT SAY "RESKIN IS DEAD"
MOST OF MY APPS HAVE 100-500 DOWNLOADS BUT THX TO SCALE EFFECT, I HAVE ALSO 10k-50k APPS AND FEW 500k-1kk APPS!

COPYRIGHT ABUSE FOR KEYWORDS, ALSO HELPS A LOT.


BTW. I KNOW NEW GUY, WHO IS EARNING $1k/DAY - MORE THAN ME, I AM JEALOUS LIKE HELL BUT ALSO I AM HAPPY.
HE LISTENED TO ME - DON'T GIVE UP, AD NETWORK ALREADY PAID HIM $25k

WHEN EVERYONE SAYS - RESKIN IS DEAD

You can go to some "club", they are in bigger cities.
Reskinning without a red pill is no reskinning, right? So If I change the Java code slightly into a library code and the graphics into resource file names I can do it, but the main problem is that I need the red pill to get it to work. I'll be going to a party island next week, hopefully there will be a lot of red pills there.

And ad outside app?!!

Btw, how many apps to keep do you recommend per single developer account?
I keep between 20-50 apps

Yes, outside app ads but when I get enough users, failed accounts? I just keep them online, sometimes you get suddenly massive installs after year but if I get 10k active users, I start monetization ;)

@vinku Have you got any success buying Admob accounts, I also wanted to ask you about startapp with blackhat apps, is it a perfect alternative since AdMob is making strict policies action and terminating accounts, i thought also about bying admob account but it accured to me that it doesn't worth the struggle to get account terminated if alternative exists, money is less, but i'll be spamming any way, safe money is better than none right !!?
