Topic: DO’s and DONT’s for indie Android developers
I have some experience in buiding small Android applications. Not games, but tools. And many of my tools were downloaded tens thousands times from Google Play and have a star rate more than four. All these tools were made by two hands and one brain of mine.
So, I’ve got some rules to build a successful Android application. And I’ve got answers to some frequenly asked questions. I’m going to share my knowledge to you.
What is a good rate or bad rate of the app? How to talk with users?
Does an UI design matter? What is mobile usability?
What are the core principles to build a good Android application?
Where to host sources? Which license to use? How to build?
