Do You Know How to Make An App for Android Market?

Android devices have been rising in popularity in recent years and many people are interested in the potential to make a steady stream of money through the development of an app for the Android Market. Although Apple makes more than Android in terms of app sales, if you make an app for Android Market you do not have to worry about the substantial quality control that is present for Apple app developers. As such, if you make an app for the Android Market, you have more control over the content of the app and more certainty that it will available for people to buy.

A glance through Android Market will show you just how much variety there is in the types of apps that you can develop and there continue to be more apps released every day. This can seem very overwhelming and complex. The question is, how do you create an app that stands out in this crowded market without it costing a large amount of money?

Making an app isn’t actually expensive, and most apps don’t cost the developer anything except time. While Apple charges users a yearly fee to be a developer, Android does not, which makes it cheaper to get started making apps for Android Market than for Apple’s app store.

In general, there are a few main types of apps you can make, as well as many variations on these. For example, one type of app that is very common is games, and there are thousands of different types of games released every week. Another type of app is one that modifies or enhances a component of the phone. An example of this is an app that adds filters to pictures that you take using your phone.

When you are creating your app, remember that the market is crowded and you don’t have much time to impress users. The first part of your app that anyone sees is its icon, description and screenshots in the store. I’ve seen a lot of developers that don’t bother with this part, which is actually a bad decision. This information determines how many people download your app. If you do not have a good description or images, many people will pass your app by without ever downloading it.

Another aspect of how to make an app for Android Market is to make sure that the app is completely tested before you release it, and that it is easy for people to use. Users do not tend to have much patience with new apps and often do not give new apps much time before they give up on them.
