This post is just to inform that my eBook “Make Money on Android” won’t be available for sale anymore. I have decided to stop selling it as the market is changing each day and I do not have time to update it. In this place I would like to say thank you to all buyers! I have heard a lot of good words about the eBook and I know it has helped to a lot of you to build high and stable income. As I have heard some of you are making even more than me. I am very happy that I could help so many developers.
Once again a big Thank you and Good luck!
As most of you know Google have changed their policy lastly. They have enforced advertisers to follow their rules. Most importantly if you want to use notification or icon ads in your app you must display opt in/opt out information. Without it your app may be removed from listing for breaking Google Play Developer Program policy.
It is just a quick news that “Subscribers Text Counter” has been updated. Many of you have used it on your blogs but in last days the twitter counter stopped to work. In latest version it is fixed plus a few more features and fixes have been added. Below you will find complete list what have been changed in last 2 days (there was quite a few smaller updates from version 1.6 to 1.6.4).
The roaring success of both Google and Apple App stores have opened up a whole new vista of opportunities for developers and designers. But only a few of all people who jump into the app developing business actually taste success. If you want your app to be successful, there are some key aspects you should devote you utmost attention to.
Most probably you have already heard about last Google Play Developer Program policy changes. There is a lot of rumor on the Internet. Most blogs and News site says about the end of Notification Ads as new policy says:
Ads must not simulate or impersonate system notifications or warnings.
It was my first thought as well. The end is coming. But some people on the Android forums and some mails I have exchanged made me wonder about intention of Google. Did they written that notification Ads are forbidden or…? Lets look on the content policy a little closer.
Just as promised I have prepared new version of my “Make Money on Android” eBook. It is based on previous edition with a lot of content added and some edited. Subtitle has been changed to “How to make $3000.00 on free Android apps” (instead of $1500.00) as info included have easily doubled my income. Moreover newest version have 3o pages in total (instead of 20). Now I have good and bad news. Firstly the good news. Updated version of eBook is free for all who have previously purchased old edition! You just need to login with your password to my blog members area to download it! If you still do not have your password (bought eBook before I have set up login/password system), please contact me via my web form with your purchase ID. Now the bad news. If you have not previously bought my eBook the new price is $29.95 (instead of $19.99). Anyway as you may see in comments on the purchase page it is worth the price!
If you are wondering what new may be found on the eBook – here is the summary:
- New monetization methods for you free Android apps (double your current income!)
- How to make more money without ADs and no additional work…
- Updated promotion methods chapter!
- Updated income stats!
- And many fixes and improvements!
If you think the price is too high you need to verify comments of current buyers again! I am not charging per page but for the knowledge that for many of other Android developers have doubled or even tripled their income! Price has been set on $29.95 to be sure that only developers who are really interested in Android development and want to invest money in their business buy it. I do not want to spread all of the info around to people who are not serious about their business.
If you are looking for more info about my eBook please visit my purchase page. All comments from readers of new eBook version are welcome and highly desired (under this post).

If you want very short answer I can tell you on the beginning on this post. Yes! It is definitely worth to implement LeadBolt on your Android apps! I was very afraid before done it and had a lot of doubts. I was afraid of reaction of my users. I was afraid of bad comments. I was afraid of loosing downloads. After some experimenting now I know that there is a bad and good way of doing it. Moreover at all I have tripled my daily income from ads.
Some big changes are coming. As most of you could notice there was no Income Report on my blog since the beginning of the year. There are many reasons that have stopped me from publishing my total money income on monthly basis. But the most important is that it have created many “copy&paste” followers without their own ideas. It is really sad that so many people prefer to steal the idea, graphics, descriptions and make just a few bucks with some unpopular copy. In most cases it does not give them real profit, but tens of copies of my apps on the market are not comfortable for me. If they would think just a little, they could make some unique and really profitable apps. But for many developers it looks easier to copy everything. They are able to copy so they could produce some awesome apps (as they have enough knowledge to build an app). But thinking seems to painful for them. That’s just the reason that has unmotivated me from showing all of the money income sources directly.
Last week I was very surprised when clicked a link to create Google Checkout account and found my country on the list – as till then Poland has not been officially supported. We have been allowed to add free apps to Android Market but could not sell anything! I have immediately filled all forms and registered account on my country with my legal business name and address. Unfortunately I could not add my bank account number as it was not accepted by the form. I could not find any official news anywhere on the Internet about new countries. Moreover message asking me about my AdSense account number has been popping up on my Android Market console.
