Android-based smartphones are flooding the market. While the iPhone continues to dominate the US market, Android smartphones and tablets from different manufacturers like Samsung, Asus, Sony, and HTC are selling proverbial hot cakes worldwide. At a time like this, the demand for custom Android apps development is extremely high.

Developers and programmers who can create custom apps for Android-based on client requirements can make a lot of money. Seasoned developers can learn Android development and create apps through the help of tutorials and books. While a basic understanding of programming is essential for people planning to develop apps on their own, you don’t have to be an expert at mobile development to teach yourself how to build apps for Android mobile devices.

To wrap it up

You can also make a lot of money by developing apps based on your own concepts. The best part is that when you sell the apps on Android, you get to keep 80% of all the sales revenue your app generates!
