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.

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.
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.
It is high time for my another income report. I used to write my total developer income reports (last one "Gave up a day job! Now what? – Income report #3") and last month I have summed my "Android Income Report" (not included previously). As I am switching mostly to Android application development I have decided to write just a one total report. So here it is! My "Developer Income Report #5".
A lot of people says that there is no real money in the Android development. They say that if you want to make money you should write for iPhone, iPad and all other iThings... This is not true! I am not a one of guys that is making thousands of dollars but my income seems to be steady and is still growing.
Moreover I am not one of top developers nor any of my apps have been promoted by Android Market. I am just an one among of thousands of Android developers with not to well known apps. And what may be really surprising all my apps are free as Google do not allow developers from my country (Poland) to sell apps via Android Market!
