Im new to the forum scene just looking to meet other app developers
I'm a 29-year-old Swede who found this forum today. ^^
This seems like a nice and friendly place, and I like it how people share their ups and down with tips and tricks with monetizing in apps. I released my first app in February this year, and it's going kinda slow cause I apparently suck at marketing. ^^;; My next step is to make a free ad-supported version of my first app, which is how I ended up here when I was googling for info on ad-providers.
I've been coding since I was around 10 or so (can't remember :P) and playing games for as long as I can remember. Used to work as a games programmer for XBOX/XBOX360/PlayStation2&3/PC, but I prefer to actually have a life instead of being chained to a desk for 23/7 where you need to ask permission to pee.
In my spare time, I love to dance, mostly oriental styles, playing online games, crafting, and a million different things. Very much into reading sci-fi and non-fictional books in that area too.
I've got a blog that follows my process with my app and the game I'm making:
My released apps can be found here:

Hope to get to know you all better!
Hi there !
I'm CÚdric. I live in the south of France.
I'm currently working as software architect, project manager and developer, mainly on Java, GWT and FLEX.
I'm developing Android apps on my free time because I like making small games, and the mobile platform is the ideal medium for this, and I want to stay up to date on technology !
I first came here through the blog, looking on information about app marketing etc. I've already got a couple of useful informations from this blog and forum. Hopefully my own experience will be useful to someone else soon.
I've got a blog where I discuss Android development and also graphic resource making with Inkscape/Gimp. The blog has just started so there are only a few posts:
My first game YaMeMo is out. I'll make a better presentation in the "self promo" area when I have more time.
I'm still experiencing some development and marketing ideas on this one, but I've got ideas for at least two other games.
get YaMeMo for free, challenge your memory!
i'm sara new to dis grp...
I'm Ken and I hail from Los Angeles. I'm a long time video game developer and am now moving into the mobile market. I'm very pleased to have found this blog and this forum. Thanks David!
I am developing using flash (embedded in a AIR container) with the intention of releasing my games on iOS in addition to Android. If anyone is doing the same I'd be more than happy to trade notes.
In terms of gear I currently have a HTC Thunderbolt, a Kindle Fire, and an iPhone 3G. There may be an iPhone 4 or 5, and possibly an iPad, in my future before the end of summer.
Good luck, everybody!
Hey, everyone, I forgot to introduce myself earlier. I'm Thomas from Poland. After years of programming boring desktop and web applications I started making games for Android a year ago and right now it's moved to be sth more than a hobby. Apart from that I work as a freelancer and sometimes have a problem finding free time to make games. I'm also very bad at marketing.
I guess it's time for me to introduce myself too.
My name's Axel and I'm from Sweden. I recently turned 16 (about a month ago). When I was about 10 I wanted to program games. I found a program called "Game Maker" which was great for me. Later I wanted to program games for my mobile phone instead. I started looking online for tutorials. Everyone used different programs and it was too confusing for me at the time so I gave up on that idea.
A couple of months ago I got a new phone, the ZTE Blade, which had Android. I hadn't programmed for a while but I really wanted to make a game for this phone. I started looking online on how to start and found a lot of great help. I started working on my first 'game' Math Trainer after learning the basics and tried looking online when I got stuck. This worked out great and it was done about a month after I started working on it.
I've had no experience with marketing so the only thing I've really done to promote it is post to a few forums. It has worked out quite well for me as I'm getting about 70 installs a day, had 200 installs at my best day, at Google Play only. The installs seems to have slowed down a little as it's summer now. My application is also the first result now when searching for the Swedish word for "Math" so it will be very interesting to see what effect this will have when everyone's starting school again (when I had 200 installs in one day, 100 of those were from Sweden and it was then result number 6 or 7).
I'm also very happy with the money I'm making (about $2 a day) as I thought it would be really hard to make money with android applications.
In my free time I like to do all kind of things. Running, playing games, etc.
I'm the owner of a ZTE Blade (with Android 2.2) and the 2nd generation iPod Touch.
Happy to be part of the community!
Already posted my apps in the "Promote Your Android App" section http://makingmoneywithandroid.com/fo...ad.php?tid=463
I have developed a couple of apps for Windows Mobile back in the day. But that is completely dead now. I did look at Windows Phone 7 development, but Windows Phone just doesn't seem to be getting any traction. On top of that, the Windows Phone SDK kept changing, which is a pain. So I decided to give Android development a try. Never did any Java programming but I know C and C++ so that was easy. And I am really liking the Android SDK.
I am here trying to learn more about marketing, and I guess signing up on this forum and posting my apps on this forum is a good start If you have any questions about my apps or Android development, feel free to ask.
