How to earn money from home with apps?
There are two easiest ways to earn money with apps:
The most popular way to get income from apps, more than 50% of apps make their fortune that way. It’s a great approach to earn money without making your users spend money (isn’t it important in times of quarantine and uncertainty?). Users enjoy your content in the application, you get income for ads. It looks like a win-win situation for a user and developer. Usually advertising takes form of full-screen or small banners or videos. The income is generated per impressions and clicks of ads in your application.
Therefore, the more installs and usages you provide, the more money you get.

To make a successful application you should plan it and come up with a strong concept. For example, you can go on Google Play to research popular apps or go to Google Trends to find a popular niche among your local community (country, city). Research what is popular now in conditions of COVID-19 pandemic: what people are searching for while sitting at home. It could be online shopping, education, online fitness, movies, tv-series, etc. Remember, if you want to make your app popular and make enough money, you need to offer your audience the real value – it means the content that they will use.
