There are millions of apps on the play store. Type whatever app you want, you will get a long list of apps with almost the same functionality. For example, you searched “music player” on the play store, you will get 100s of music player apps. So do you have any chance of earning with android apps nowadays? My answer is still “YES”.
You have two options in front of you.
1. Make a unique app that is not available on the play store
I think for most people including me, the second one is easier.
when you do this, you can earn money.
What type of app should earn you more money?
Generally an app usable so many times in a day for so much time will earn you more money.
For example MUSIC PLAYER, PHOTO EDITOR, VIDEO PLAYER, CALL RECORDER, BATTERY BOOSTER, PHONE CLEANER, CALCULATOR ETC.
We can`t say that an app will earn 1 lakh per month or 1 lakh per day exactly. Because so many factors will effect on earnings
Example: app usage time (longer=better earnings), usage frequency(more=better earnings),app audience country(developed countries=better earnings),number of installs(more installs=better rank=better earnings),number of active installs(more=better earnings),type of ads (Interstitail ads will earn more than banner ads),type of ad network(AdMob is the best ad network for monetiszation) etc.
Usage frequency=hardly once per day.
Installs country=mixed countries, mostly from developing countries
Number of active installs=40000
Type of monetization= AdMob banner ad only
