Now that games can be downloaded into smartphones, people are looking forward gaming on the go. Many people wish to use Android devices but one of the reasons why some of them are avoiding Android devices is that the number of games available for this platform is comparatively lower when compared to the choices available on iPhones. Hence, this is a good time to work as an Android game developer.
Recent ComScore reports have revealed that Google has continued to snatch a larger share of the smartphone market on a regular basis. This means that the market for Android games will also increase.
If are shying away from becoming an Android game developer because you think that reaching out to the millions of users of these phone is difficult, you should reconsider your decision. People generally form an opinion about the problems of marketing apps when they try to sell through the iPhone App store. The problem with the iPhone App store is that they charge an annual fee of $99 and have a rather lengthy and complicated review procedure. The advantage of the Android platform is that the app goes live as soon as the developer publishes it and secondly, they charge as little as $25 for launching an app. What’s better is that this $25 has to be paid only once!
If you think that you do not have the technical know-how to become an Android game developer, you should not let go of your game idea. There are companies that are willing to share revenues with people like you in exchange for providing the technical support that you need.
While there are many such companies, it is important that you contact the right one so that you really stand to create a game that is entertaining and also not susceptible to crashes. Although people usually do not have to worry too much about apps crashing in Android because of the Linux base of the platform, if an app is not well written, people will not like it.
Another thing that you should remember while choosing a company to partner with is the issue of flexibility. If you see that the company is trying to push terms down your throat so that things get better for them, you may consider moving away.
