I want to know that, developing android applications is good option to make money?:rolleyes:


Yes it is a good option. (One of the better options for indie developers really). You still need to make really good games and put some effort into marketing them if you want to make a living from it and becoming filthy rich is very difficult as always.

No idea to be honest, but if you know Java then you could just drop by http://developer.android.com and go from there, it isn't that difficult.

Making good applications that people want to use is a good option to make money.
Platform is secondary.

Android is a big platform, where its easy and cheap to self publish, so of course Android is a good idea to learn if you are interested in making good applications that people want to use :)

If you are asking: "Is android a viable market?" then the answer is "yes". If you are asking: "how do I make money from apps/games?" then the answer is "what does your business plan say?". If you don't have a business plan, you aren't ready to make serious money. :)

Lately the media has been panning Android as second fiddle to iOS, but don't listen to them for a second. I think Android will be king for making money in a couple of years. Every day better apps are being deployed to it, so make something now before the gold rush starts. It will only get harder to have your app noticed.
