GoodBarber FAQs about mobile app development #2


Today we're focusing on three new subjects: monetization, featured placements in Google Play, and the time needed to create an app.

Learn what our team can tell you about these questions.

How to make money with my mobile app?

First, you can make a paid app. When you submit your app on the App Store or on the Play store, you set the price for your app. On Google Play, note that if you decide to publish a paid app, it will be a paid app forever. No way to set it free later.
Second, you can put ads in your app. the easiest way to do it, is to use an ad network. Ad networks will push ads in your app, and they will pay you when users see or click on the splash screens or banners.
But, remember, making money with an app is a matter of traffic. Get as much trafic as you can in order to generate a decent revenue.
They are several opportunities for featured placement on Google Play.
But, in order to have a chance to get listed, you need to provide the feature graphic asset when you submit your app. This asset is optional to publish an app, but it becomes mandatory if you want to be featured.
Then, if the Google Play team likes your app, they can put it on the Editor's choice or the staff picks. It's a manual process.
Otherwise, if you app gets popular, it can be listed automatically in the different tops. Top free, top grossing, top new paid, and so on.

How long does it take to create an app?

Tough question because it will vary a lot from one project to another.
Keep in mind that no matter what your app project is, you have the following steps to follow.
First, design your app. In this step, you are going to draw each screen of your app. You can do it yourself or have it done by a pro. Time and price will vary accordingly
Second, develop your app. This is the technical part. If you have coding skills, go ahead. If not, hire a developer. 
Third, test and publish. I recommend you to test by yourself, carefully. Then, publish your app in the stores.
If you use an app builder, like GoodBarber, you can create an app in minutes, and have it available on Google Play within the hour. Give it a try, it's free.
