We had a brief discussion yesterday on the reasons as to why people create Android apps and today I would like to elaborate on this subject by discussing the options you have when you decide you want to sell the app you have created with our Android App Builder to another party.
As we have already discussed, there are groups of app makers that create apps for professional reasons to make make money, usually this is the group that sits within our 30 something group that are looking for addditional income or to start a new career. However, there are many reasons as to why an app maker may decide to sell the apps that they have built with AppsGeyser’s Android app builder, including; deciding that the app is not making sufficient income, selling the original business of which the app represents or simply creating an app for another party for a profit. Whatever your reason for selling your Android app you need to remember that there will be people out there that are willing to pay for the hard work you have put in.
How do I sell an Android app to another party?
You may not have realised this but selling apps is a big business and there are specialized brokers out there that are experts in selling app permissions, you could of course, decide to sell your app independantly too. If you decide to use a brokerage service here are two that we have heard of that are consider amongst the top. Please note that these are our personal opinions and we do not work with these companies.
Appbusinessbrokers – What we like about this app broker is that they will help you through each step of the app selling process. The company values your business by looking at your app statistics, current income stream and also the field in which you are specializing. They will ensure paperwork is signed and the transfer of ownership of the app has been successfully completed. Using a brokerage like this company can come with a nice little price tag, however there are many advantages to using an agency, including the use of their expertise. App brokers such as this company will match your app to prequalified buyers looking to purchase a working app, thus saving you time and effort.
Apptopia – If you are looking to sell your app without the help of an app broker, then you may wish to view this easy to use website. Apptopia allows you to list your own app and sell it independently, it works a little bit like ebay, you list your product (your app business) and wait for bids to come in. However, there is a main bonus to this website, once a deal has been struck; Apptopia will guide you through the handover process which gives you alittle bit of piece of mind knowing that you have completed the process correctly.. In addition to the customer support, Apptopia is also free. You can list your app on the website and add a reserve price so you are not tied in to selling for less than your wanted price. If your app does not reach its reserve price you have lost nothing but a little time.
Do I sell the app license key?
AppsGeyser doesn’t offer you the app license key, which is the source code for your app – you are able to sell the APK file. In order to transfer the app to another owner you will need to give the buyer your AppsGeyser login information so they can have full working knowledge of the app and access to the APK. If you created your app using our Facebook login option, please contact our support staff to help you make the transition safely without giving away your personal information to an external source.
AppsGeyser are not able to provide you with the developer’s signature for legal reasons. This means that if the buyer moves the app to a non-AppsGeyser platform, they will not be able to distribute it using the same name in Google Play and all ratings accumulated will be lost. What we suggest is that the AppsGeyser app remains as an AppsGeyser app and can be used as part of a network of apps that link to external AppsGeyser made apps.
Creating apps using the AppsGeyser Android app builder is so simple that many app makers are turning to creating apps for a third party using the appsgeyser tools. Why not start your app making career today?
