    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hello from Boston everyone!

    Great place David! Its good to see a forum where people discuss their market experiences here as well. I've been doing android for about 2 years now and have always wanted to have apps on the android market. So, I am here for ideas, interests, tech discussions, getting help and just for the fun of discussing android.

    Going by the template, I find myself reading a lot of astronomy and physics related articles (but do not have the patience of reading a book).

    - Keep coding!

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    I'm from the US, Kansas to be exact. I can tell I'm the most total newbie here. I started out as a computer science major years ago & changed to business mgt because I didn't want to sit behind a computer all day - well, I sit behind one anyway, just not doing what I really like doing. When my kids were young I used to install Linux on our computers... I'm talking 12-14 years ago; my daughter hated the penguin. Now she's in college & taking CS101; she calls me and asks how Android came about & to tell me the computer lab computers run on Linux. That darn penguins come a long ways I tell her. Through the years I've done warranty work for Dell & HP.... Ya, that really paid well....it was just in m my spare time....kind of how I got my computer fix. my original rooted moto Droid was what got me interested in Android development, & a half price Lenovo k1 tablet has just added to the fascination.

    Found your site this morning & mybringback on YouTube to help me get the sdk's installed & start learning java, so I'm probably St for some late, frustrating nights

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hello Fellow Android Developers/Users!

    My name is Yolanda and I'm currently living in Los Angeles, CA. I have an ongoing ecommerce business selling children's formal wear (PinkPrincess.com) but have left the daily operations of the company and started an Android and iOS game and app development company.

    I'm passionate a entrepreneur, blogger, photographer, actor, filmmaker, hiker, and home cooker!

    In 2009, my co-founder Gary Suyemoto of Mad Mochi (www.madmochi.com) and I decided to combine our shared passion in fun and simple games to create new, fulfilling experiences for today's gamers.
    Our goal is to create and combine casual, social, and hard core gaming all into one for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Flash, and much more.

    We started off publishing our first Android game now on the Android Market (Tip Tap Tile Ultimate Edition) and am now continuing to make more apps as well.

    If anyone has any questions I can help with, I am more than happy to try my best. Cheers!

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi everyone

    I'm from Switzerland, 25 years old and into computers since the age of 7. I'm currently finishing my bachelor and working part time in a major telco. I started with android apps in april 2011 and got a pretty great start with 3 soundboards with over 100k downloads each.

    I've made the Achmed , Portal 2, Hangover Part 2 and Walter Soundboards which were all disabled by google without any specific reason after 3-6 months (but obviously because of copyright problems )

    So I then started with my new app called Facr which is a Face Recognition app, but sadly it's more like a tech demo. I definately missed the business case with this app.

    Anyway some nice app ideas are ghosting around my head and you can expect them to appear soon

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    I should probably put something in here. My name's Matt, I live in a little place called Kenley and work in Croydon. I work with Pensions, although luckily I'm out of pension admin now - I'm one of the people they call in when it's discovered that a mistake has been made. I work out the impact and tell them how to fix it. It can be interesting, but mostly not. In March I'll be moving to a new company and a different job, and I have no real idea what it involves except that there will be lots of spreadsheets. I can't wait.

    I have a beautiful wife, a lovely little dog and a cute cat at home, and they're what prompted me to start working with Android. I've always been interested in programming, but mostly limited to hobby-work. A few php websites for friends and forums, the occasional VB macro to make work a bit easier. When I got my HTC Desire, I was very keen to have a play with Android, but I've never done anything with Java. I had a play with App Inventor, and released a couple of things (mostly tying in to php webpages) but never really had a good enough grasp to try monetising.

    I've been following the MakingMoneyWithAndroid blog almost from the beginning, and it's been a real inspiration. Part of my new year's resolutions this year was to spend more time with Java and learn how to use it - and I finally found a little time. My first proper Java app has been released to the market yesterday (although I'm going to make a separate post about it in the promote your app bit of the store rather than put links here).

    I hope to make a few pennies so that I can eventually work from home on apps. That's a long way off though...

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi Everyone,

    Guess it's my turn. My name is Dustin Hansen, I'm from Idaho, in the US. I'm 31 (ancient, right?) and I've been programming in one capacity or another for 13 years. My first Android phone was the G1, and I've loved it just as much as it seems you guys have ever since.

    I've got two kids, and I actually started programming a game specifically for my daughter that just entered first grade this year. A couple of friends saw the game while she was playing it, and they wanted a copy too, so I figured, wtf, why not throw it up on the Android market.

    I've got two apps up now, and the first one is near 3,000+ downloads, and the most recent one is gaining about 100+ new users a day, it's pretty cool to see how quickly a good game can gain traction in the marketplace.

    I'm primarily using PhoneGap/Cordova as I really like the aspect of using HTML5, CSS3, and canvas for building nice cross-platform games that finally have hardware acceleration!

    Nice to meet you all. ^_^

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Stan, I'm currently living in Australia.
    I'm a beginner developer for Android. So far I've only released one game called Doptrix
    Seems like I managed to make it unique and interesting, it already has ~15.000 downloads and 4.7 rating, which is good, right?
    Unfortunately, monetization is not going very well. I hope to find some valuable tips on this forum.

    RE: Introduce Yourself

    Hi all,

    I've been reading the blog and forums for a while, but probably time I interact now

    I live Cape Town, South Africa.

    I've been in the IT industry for over 10 years doing mostly support, but after working my way from fixing pcs to fixing servers to fixing linux, pabx system and firewalls and getting bored, I've slowly started moving over to software development. Like most others here, my personal time to work on apps is quite limited, especially since I do software development (web-based business software) at work all day I don't always want to code at night.

    I'm developing apps with a friend, he does design, graphics and testing while I do the coding. We've got a basic website running currently - www.ambrosia-designs.co.za which we use for the apps we make as well as our gaming addictions (mmos).

    We actually started with Blackberry development (my work phone is a blackberry so was a good place to start), and I'm hoping to find time soon to actually produce an income report for everyone to see regarding the blackberry app side of things.

    I've shifted to android as there's a much bigger market and more ways to monetize.

    The plan is to slowly but surely generate enough income to work on it full time.
