Advantages and Disadvantages of Selling an App in the Android Market

Selling your new Android app in the Android market can open many doors of opportunity. However, there are some pros and cons to consider. Here are a few advantages and disadvantages our android web developers have come across:


Allows you to sell and distribute Android apps to thousands (and millions) of users. Depending on what Android app store you choose, some stores will actually help drive sales to other App stores. That means more exposure to your app. It also allows you to set the price of your app on a 'per app store basis'.

Your app gets featured in the updated sections of every app store your app is sold in - rather than just the one. As a result, you receive even more exposure.


When it comes to tracking your sales in all Android stores, you have to be patient. Consider using a good analytics program to help you stay on track. Our android web developers can help you with analytics.

If you need to update your apps, you have to update it on every Android app store it’s displayed in.  This can be very time-consuming and difficult to manage.

It can be very expensive promoting your Android app at various app stores.  The solution to this problem is to promote your app on free Android store. You can also hire android web developers to build a landing page to sell your Android app.

The following is not really considered a disadvantage; we just wanted to throw it in...

Not all app stores are exactly alike. Every store has their own set of rules and guidelines.  It's important to follow the store's policy and guidelines for selling products.
