With so many types of mobile devices and new mobile OS’ coming into the market today, app development is emerging more profitable than ever before.
The app developer, even about 5 years ago, had a limited choice of mobile OS’ such as Windows Mobile, Black Berry and Apple.
But today, with the emergence of so many new mobile platforms and their different versions; also with the concept of cross-platform formatting of apps getting more popular; the field of mobile app development becomes a veritable treasure-trove for the developer to make a decent sum of money every month, by way of creating mobile applications.
In this article, we discuss ways and means you can use to make the maximum money from mobile app development.
All the major app stores such as the Apple App Store, the Google Android Market, RIM’s App World, the Nokia Ovi Store and so on, have already made billions of dollars in terms of profit, over the last few years.
Mobile apps have now emerged as one of the easiest and best ways to advertise and sell products and services, encourage social sharing of information and generally encourage mobile users towards developing and maintaining brand loyalty.
The mobile app development market is vast and offers great scope for app developers and companies to succeed beyond their expectation, by making very little initial investment.
Angry Birds is one great game app that has maintained its immense popularity among the masses.
But very few among them are capable of generating the kind of revenue that the biggest players did.
The actual reason behind this has nothing to do with the company’s lack of insight.
Quoting the example of Angry Birds once again, Rovio had released a free version of the app for the Android Market.
This version also came with an advertising bar on it and this is exactly where the actual revenue came from.
