“Native” development is fun and challenging, but (there is always a but) I find myself wanting to embrace a wider audience. The rumors you hear about making money with Android may or may not be true. I have two apps out; one is paid and one is free.
My apps are completely different and 100% un-related from each other. That said, the free app has been downloaded almost an order of magnitude more than the paid app. I’m not sure if that means a damn thing, but its hard to miss. The quality of my apps and usefulness aside; its also difficult to look at the other platforms and not have a, “What if my app was in that store…” moment.
