    Good question. I've got 30k downloads on a well made game once though and it's stable at 3-4k right now after a few months. So it is worth it (making that game took at least two months). I don't know if Smile app could get you similar results.

    i have a free sound board app on google play that got 948 last Christmas. Odd tho it got 944 on jan 12. does average of 700 a day now but hasn't dropped below 500 a day for months. i only get about 42% retention of active installs.

    anyone know if putting up a video of you app on youtube actually helps?

    Of course not, but neither did the game. It even makes worse. Sometimes I feel that it would be better to develop 10 stupid apps in 10 days of work than a good one.

    Wow! To have downloads of that level on a Soundboard app is impressive. Maybe I'll try doing one again
    As to the video, In my experience YES. I've seen a solid 20%+ install increase every time I've added a demo video. You can easily if it's working by monitoring the view count of the video too.

    I think i may have figured this out a while back. That's why i switched to niche wallpapers, soundboards, and other one off simple ones. I can pump those tings out right and left. Hell today in 2 hours i kicked out another one. If my gut is right (usually is) this will be a good dumb app people will download like crazy. just super simple.

    You have to put out a quality niche one to do that. I am talking 80 plus hours of sound editing and squeezing as many sounds in as possible. The lowest number of sounds i have in these is about 210. Still not passing into the 20 MB in size apk realm.

    I will make a video of each app i have this weekend and reply back here if i see a noticeable increase.

    Well I kinda cheated on the wallpapers. Got basically a template from a buddy. He stepped out of the dev world and sold it to me on the cheap.

    I am switching over to appbucks for the wallpapers. Admob didn't work well for them. Needa push or icon for wallpapers. But hey I am still learning. Only had a couple wallpapers. But now I have a great artist to pull art from. He cant animate so I do that and make the live wallpaper.
