App Development is Not a Zero Sum Game

Here is what I believe is how the market functions.

There are downloads coming in for us developers everyday. Potential downloads at worst. Grab them!

Many new devices are purchased daily. Many new comers and new users on the mobile world. Many new kids that have grown up enough to have their own devices. (Yeah, thank their parents! :D )

There is no way that just because I got 3 downloads today, that would mean that you lose out on 3 downloads. It just doesn't work that way. The same 3 downloads are most likely to generate 9 more downloads of other apps as users further explore the application stores.

So I say, go get your apps out there. App development is not a zero sum game. The more you put out there, the more your chance of getting downloads. The bigger your pie slice gets.

And yeah, you get luckier too the more you do it.

Just avoid the spammy stuff will ya?

To the small indie app developers out there... I salute you!

Airpush Review - Where is the Promised CPM?

Hi all! How are you doing? Pretty tensed episode here on Airpush, and my opinion to the fact that they aren't playing fair to their developers.

Are you using Airpush? If you are, how's your CPM been doing? Ever since you started?

And if you are not, and you are planning to use it, what is attracting you to it?

Do you know the importance of the first 30 days on Google Play?

When releasing a new app, it is understood that it will rank far down the food chain. After all, your app is new and unproven just yet.

What Google has done on the Play store is that they have given new app an opportunity to live, a chance to get to a more respectable place in the world of the unknown, the Google Play ranking algorithm.
