    Samsung = idiots.... They would not list WordHero (which now has 2mil downloads) because 'it needed a network connection'..... I even tried several times before giving up.

    I don't have much download for my apps, but here you can look at the data
    Untitled.jpg
    and here the total download in GP
    1: 75
    2: 46
    3: 50
    4: 42
    5: 16579

    The nice things about Samsung, if you don't works well at marketing your app, then worth to try it(like me). In SamsungApps there are category for new application, so you should have an amount of download when your app release.

    Did anyone try to sell something in their store? As they don't allow ads in the app (reason: it links to another marketplace like Google Play). I'm about to take out all ads from my app and sell it and Samsung Store, would be nice to hear if u succeed.

    It didnt even cross my mind about most ads linking to Google Play store. I did release an app with ads on Samsung store, and they approved it. I didnt know it isnt allowed...

    I've been using it for a week and it's being reasonably good.

    Taking Google Play's download count as the benchmark:
    - on the first 3 days I assume I had some kind of highlight on their store and had a good download count: about 60-70% of Google Play
    - after this initial period Im having around 15-20% of GP
    - on Amazon, for example, I have around 10% of GP, so Samsung is the #2 source of downloads for me
