Update #2: My eBook has been released! You may get it from this link "Make Money on Android". Comments to this post has been closed!
In most of my posts I am just sharing information about Android, my online income and Android market revenue. I am giving you a lot of information. As some of you have sad in your comments some are inspiring and some are just useful. This post is other than the rest. This time you won't learn anything new. This time I will ask you about something. But I will give you something in return as well. I will give you free copies of my new ebook about making money with Android (with free apps!).
So what I want from you? I will want you to ask me a questions (in the comments to this post - so do not forget to give me your email) about building income with free applications for Android. In return I will give 3 copies of my ebook about building my Android market revenue to authors of first three questions that I will decide to be included in the ebook! (one copy to one person, multiple questions allowed - I will pick the best ones).
My ebook is almost ready and I will give three free copies as soon as it will be finished. For others that won't be so lucky to have their questions included or to those that just want the ebook about building passive income stream with Android free apps without asking any questions - it will be available very soon via this blog.
As soon as the contest will be finished or the ebook available - I will announce it as an update to this blog post. So give me your questions now (please)!
