My first Android app after a year

Scratchpad completes one year on google play store today. The Scratchpad is my first mobile app. I developed it during my last winter vacation. I took total of 5 days to learn (Android app development) and develop this app. This is a very very simple drawing app (similar to mspaint), no fancy features.

In this blog post, I am posting download statistics over the year. These data might be helpful to other Android newbie developers. The images below are screenshots from the android developer console.

Total downloads stat:





The total number of downloads are not much. But this is not bad at all if I consider the fact that this is my first app, total time I spent to develop this app and features provided by this app.




Active device install stat over the year:










Initially number of downloads per day were very small.  In fact, there was no download in initial few days. Then I posted about this app on reddit (/r/androidapps), then people started downloading it.




Active device install by Android version:






















The Android version 2.3 is at top for productivity app but the Scratchpad is available only for Android version 3.0 and higher.




Active device install by country:



The United States is at the top of this list. This is an interesting data. I am finding similar statistics for my iPad app (Lekh Diagram, a sketch recognition app for iPad). Even for the Lekh Diagram, more than 50% downloads are from US

  8. This is very inspiring, as getting from the start & Having no real background in programming (aside from making some adventures on ZX-81 and MSX), I want to get started on developing something for my own Android based eBook reader and android app development training and know that if you are android apps developer who wants to design and develop android-based apps you must go through the design guidelines set by the official Android user experience UX team. Even this online course seems to be interesting http://www.wiziq.com/course/13599-professional-android-app-development-training-1-on-1-sessions. Has anyone tried any online courses so far. Please do provide a light on this also.

  25. Excellent post. You really dialed that in.Android's free improvement devices make it feasible for you to begin composing programming at practically zero expense. When you're prepared to hotshot your application to the world, you can distribute it to Google's Android Market. Distributed to Android Market brings about an irregular enrollment charge (US $25 at the season of composing) and, not at all like Apple's App Store which broadly audits every accommodation, makes your application accessible for clients to download and purchase after a brisk survey process — unless the application is out rightly illicit.Thanks all!!
