The Super Bowl Weekend Update and Valentines!


A quick little check - Super Bowl weekend

So, how did it go for you over the weekend? Did you release an app related to the Super Bowl?


Check out the chart below on my Football Juggling game on the Android Market:



Similar growth from other monitoring sites too. This from AppBrain:



And this from distimo:



Hope you did release an app for the Super Bowl.. check out the trending apps section now, and you will see some simple trivia apps in the trending lists.

The icing of the cake? Well, the revenue gains over the weekend has been awesome!

What's next?

Valentines Day!! You REALLY need to target this one! It is a superb opportunity in making money with your apps.

Here is an idea. Make a very simple greeting card app. Allow the users to pick from a range of background, key in a message (maybe you can provide some messages for them to pick), and then make a card as a bitmap to be sent to others via social media and email.

I'll need to get my hands dirty for this too, lacking any lovey dovey app!

Cheers!

Which mobile advertising network should I use?

When it comes to monetising apps on the Android platform, mobile ads is one of the better options (IAP is probably the other alternative which is doing real good now).

A little while back, someone asked me what networks I use. Now, this is a list of networks I use. Not in all my apps though. And my ad network usage changes from time to time. So the following are just my choices, you MUST try out what works for you, as mileage really differs from developer to developer, and from app to app.


Preffered mobile advertising networks
The following are my preffered networks, and those that I would be implementing in my apps going forward (performance pending of course).

AppFloodUPDATE: I've dropped AppFlood till the issue here is sorted out.

AppFlood is really an awesome network. 100% of revenue goes to developers. The best payout system (net-anything, seriously!). Innovative ad formats, and a huge selection of ads make up only some of their good points. Their transparency on ads is aweso…
