Hi! I’m Ivan and I’ve been an Android app developer for quite a while now. Or so it seems. Back in the day (we are talking about 2009), Android was just an infant and I watched the Little Green Man grow ever since. I’m afraid some time ago, Android managed to outgrow me.
Nowadays, Android is not just on tens of thousands of different phones and tablets. It’s on your wrist, in your living room, in your car, and as soon we start assigning IP addresses to inanimate objects, it is going to be pretty much everywhere around us. A lot of ground for even an experienced Android developer to cover!
Also there are over one million apps just on Google Play, not counting Amazon AppStore or markets we are not generally interested in, like China. Let’s not forget countless mobile app development companies that generate billions in revenue every year.
So, how can an independent developer create a successful app in this huge market with big players? I have no idea, I haven’t made a successful app! But, I have made a cute one, and I’d like to share my story with you.
