    Anyone here who has started in the last three months and is experiencing success?

    Just wondering how is it to start nowadays. Many of my friends are coming in this business for the past few months, but no one had any kind of success so far. They are only getting a few installs per day.

    Is anyone here, who has started recently, and has some nice downloads or earnings?

    Its true that now a days competition is the market has increased exponentially, still people are getting success. One way is to redefine your marketing strategy. That can have huge effect.

    Yes, but how do you do that? Paid ads are extremely expensive, and not worth for indie devs with small apps, in my opinion. I used AdWords in the past, but it's way beyond what I'm ready to spend. You really need Clash of Clans like app to make the ads worth it.

    Not only new developers, even many old developers are having issues on getting success.

    Thanks for sharing, @asd. I'm currently at 35 USD/month with 2 apps (on my new account). I've just published the third app and I'm working on the 4th.

    Yes, its no longer easy to publish spam on GooglePlay and make money, if thats what you're asking. But newcomers still try to recreate flappy bird copies to this day and then complain on the forums that they don't make any money.

    I've released a well made app about two months ago, which is even better than the original, but I used a very similar name. The original has over 1 million downloads with very little competition and I'm stuck at 30-50 DL's per day. I'm not sure but I think that using similar names to the originals now actually has a negative effect! Before, it helped with disoverability, but now I think that Google looks for originality only. That's probably because the re-skinning business and spamming of GP went way out control.

    They're starting to really crack down on descriptions and keyword spam. I had an app that went live about 8 months ago get yanked. So I removed the keyword spam and resubmitted but they responded by suspending it b/c I forgot to remove the names of similar apps in the description too. So now I can't even resubmit. But that's ok. Because I was only getting 30-50 downloads a day and only making maybe $1 a month. So I don't care. Blackberry, Amazon and iTunes are all making significantly more money than Google Play. Despite getting far fewer downloads. Folks with Androids don't like paying money.
