Generating revenue from free mobile apps

mobile-ads-for-apps

Most of us love great free apps. However there are many bills that the developer has to pay in providing a great app. To pay the programmer, graphic designer, domain name, file server; these are some examples of bills that the developer need to pay.

Then, how to fund a great app. Ads is the easiest way, yet it is annoying. Take Angry Bird for example. How can they provide a free great apps, thanks to mobile ads. Most ads need to access the Internet in order to fetch the related ads content for a specific apps. And normally it consume your data network. If you’re connected to WiFi then I assumed it’s OK. But how if it consume your 3G network, then that is not good, since certain telco charge too expensive for data network.

These are some of the dilemmas that the developers face in order to bring a great app alive to benefit users. Does these stop us? YES, if you are a software house having to pay your staffs and the overhead bills. NO, if you are a part-time developer (like me). It will only slow us down.

However for the sake of the great apps, why don’t we give some. It’s not your money (not directly) we’d like to take. Just a small contribution of your data network to give a chance to the ads. Hopefully this will develop a win-win situation. You can have the apps freely, and we can have the fund to improvise the app, to serve you better… How about that?

And we have decided to put AdMob ads in this app. Previously it was founded by Omar Hamoui, and was acquired by Google Inc. in November 2010. This ads provider also provide ads for mobile web.

ViewFlipper Example–a simple FlashCard

UPDATE: Improved with Fling gesture (Sept 2012) UPDATE: ViewFlipper with Flip-In and Flip-Out Animation (August 2012) This tutorial is to demonstrate the ViewFlipper layout that is almost similar to CardLayout (in Java). The app will produce a simple Flash card that provide several screens with different picture for each card. Flip-in and Flip-out animation provided. Added in Sept 2012 – an improvement to support Fling gesture – enjoy… The amendment is only on the coding part. Some how the layout design (main.xml) is quite long. Later I’ll produce separated screen by including several XML layout from outside files. Screenshots;
