Income stats – android apps – March 2013
What I did
I released my new 3D live wallpaper – 3D Gyroscope Simulation LWP. For this live wallpaper I needed a model, so I decided to learn Blender first. I must say, I am very impressed with this software! There are lots of tutorials (and lots of video tutorials) out there and in no time i could create some relatively complex 3D objects. I will definitely use it for my future 3D apps!
I tried in vain registering my live wallpapers on samsung app store. It seems that samsung forbid apps with push ads on their store. The only meaningful way to integrate ads in a LWP is with push ads, so I decided not to register them with samsung at all. I don’t know why, but lately I get fewer installs from samsung store in comparison to the google play store. This is not a big problem though, because the installs from the play store are looking good 🙂
Last but not least i got a trademark infringement complain, so I had to remove all tetris references in Tetricorn! As I expected this leads to much fewer downloads… As you can see in the income stats Tetricorn isn’t a big factor, so this has no direct impact on my income, but it is very funny to see how the tetris corporation thinks that my little game is a threat to their beloved tetris empire…
How did the apps performed
I finally reached a state where the income is evenly distributed between my apps. This is very important, because if the income from one apps breaks (as it was the case with the Fart Revolver) the impact on my overall income will be almost insignificant.
And here are the numbers:
|Month||Tetricorn||Moon Racer||Fart Revolver||Orcs Invasion||Spin The Bottle||Star Flight||Fart Saber||3D Tunnel||3D Gyroscope||Sells||Total|
What is it to come
I am now working on my first 3D game. I already created the 3D models (with blender of course ;)). In a 3D game there are much more mathematical problems to solve, I already solved the most of them, so I hope I will be ready with the game sometime in April. This will be my 10nth app, so I will have something like a small anniversary :).
This was my most successful month until now, so I am really happy with the results. I broke the $500 border for the second time and my aim for now will be to get stable income over $500 / month!
