I observed that you are publishing updates to tap that number app on a regular basis. In order to increase your installs i can give following advice. Wait for at least 14 days(2 weeks) and publish a update so your app will be shown in Just in section and will cause multiple downloads. Hope this helps.
Thanks, I’ve noticed this behaviour as well and will certainly be waiting a bit between updates if possible.
how do people know about your product?
I’m wiling to see your next income report, you are doing great with your new app (fake iphone) and i’m courious about the numbers. Congrats!
I’m from india so how i can make money with android pls reply
I have the way to make money from android app. Reach me at komal [at] airpush [dot] com
Noticed you posted a recent and popular homepage iOS skin type application. As a fellow part time developer beware of this, apple has a strong history of sueing people into the ground. I know 500k installs is nice, but loosing your house to apple is not worth it.
You were warned.
How can I search to see if my idea is original or already developed. With so many apps its a nightmare to slog through all of them. Wish people had integrity and launched good stuff instead of all that useless ‘get rich quick’ garbage.
Hi ive been searching online trying to find out how many apps i can make at a time i have a few app ideas some in which do not exist at all. I see with apple they take $99 for submitting to itunes but is this per app or just a 1 of fee that i can make numerous apps from? And from what i can find, android apps can cost thousands, is that for the making of the app or making it live and i take it that is definetly per app

I am made my first android app, and i want to put it on market for free, but i need to know how to make money if my app is free?
Put ads in it When people click the ads you’ll get money. Check out AdMob if you’re getting started, it’s a pretty good advertising network with a high fill rate.
I want to but the game in the market but I can’t use my previous informatioins?
We just launched our first Android game today (Tip Tap Tile Ultimate Edition) and would like to know what are the best ways to market the game? We launched the full version $0.99 first and will be launching the free version with less levels on. Any suggestions are welcome!
You could post in the forum – Promote Your Android App. There might be a few other suggestions in the Marketing and Advertising section as well
I want to hear your opinion on the removal of the “Just in” section. How should a brand new developer have their app noticed if the only chance they have is friends downloads will move the app high enough to be noticed? Would you suggest advertising, even if you are not sure if the app is marketable?
I would like to see the Just In section return to the Android Market. At present it’s very difficult for a new app to get noticed, unless you have a large advertising budget *or* happen to pick the right keywords.
I wouldn’t recommend paid advertising, unless you’re directly making profit from your app already & can keep the profit/loss situation under control. More suitable methods of promotion would be posting in forums like http://www.makingmoneywithandroid.com/forum/ and seeking to gain some credible ratings on the Android Market. Then you can approach some blog review sites & ask them to review your app, once the quality & ratings have reached a suitable level.
What do you recommend for a complete beginner wanting to start in the Android app world, is there a book you may receommend?
Just recently found your site. Enjoying your blog articles. Keep it up!

Hey David! ….or anyone else who wants to help me…
I’m a journalism student at Missouri State University in Springfield, Mo. I am nearly graduated, the only thing standing between me and my degree is this final project. It’s a public affairs article on phone/tablet applications and creation. I have an overarching theme of using technology for social good, so any thoughts or opinions on the direction of our connectivity in this age (in terms of the citizen’s power) would be much appreciated.
If we could talk sometime this week it would be extremely helpful. I’m open early usually, but my schedule is flexible all through the weekend. Thanks so much, this won’t take long.

Tap the Balloons is a super fun and addicting game for all ages, especially for kids, which will keep them entertained for hours.
A mischievous little mouse has captured many bugs and put them in different balloons to release them in the air. You have to save all the bugs you can so that they can deflate the hot air balloon in which the small mouse travels.
To release the bugs you only need to pop the balloons by pressing on them. But stay away from the balloons containing bombs because if you pop them, you will lose one life.
– A lot of bugs to be saved.
– One of the best games for kids of all times!
– Bombs – don’t touch the balloon containing them.
– Two different ways of playing.
– A super entertaining game.
All this…is free!

I noticed you use WordPress, they easily get hacked, especially if you use bluehost or 1and1 hosting, the most secure hosting for wordpress is godaddy. never any problems with them.
Thanks for the heads up! I haven’t had any trouble with WordPress on my current hosting, but will keep it in mind.
vBulletin on the other hand, is a little harder to handle…
Hi David, How is this hosting company which you are using: https://www.webfaction.com
I’m quite happy with them (after a few months so far). The management interface is great IMHO. Not cPanel, they’ve written their own interface and abstracted everything. You create your domains and applications separately from each other. Then you map the applications to domains as a separate process. It’s a simple idea, but I really like it. Especially for playing around with new sites and subdomains.
So far I haven’t had any outages with them. SSH access is available, and pricing is good. Only downside I’ve found is that running MediaWiki on WebFaction seems to be significantly slower than with ServerGrove (which I used previously). Not sure why, but I was able to install APC which helped a bit. They even let you run your own build of Apache if desired, so there is a lot of flexibility.
Overall, the impression I get is that they’re a web hosting service built for developers. Performance/uptime may not be the best (although I’ve never had any problems). But flexibility and ease-of-use is far better than most cPanel hosts I’ve found.
I’ll be continuing to use WebFaction hosting for now. Let me know if you want to try them too, and I can give you a referral link.
