Meet Android Studio

It is powerful software and can help you make edits to your code easily. After you install Android Studio, building an app might take an hour or so. It has a flexible Gradle-based system that comes with a strong emulator as well.

Moreover, you can use it to develop apps for all Android devices. It can also help in building common features of apps through built-in templates that you can use.

How to Make Money from an App?

So, you may have an app already, but is it making any money for you? If not, you have come to the right place. This article is going to talk about various ways that you can generate revenue from your business app. So, when you’re designing an app on Android Studio, you should consider its use. Why do you think users will download it? Once you know what your app is for, consider adding the following features:

In-App Purchases

Many apps are free for download but can offer in-app purchases. So, whether your app is utility-based or a video game, you can add this feature. Many video games can coerce you to spend money on virtual coins that you can use in the game. Then, you can purchase new characters and open new maps on the game. You can also make the first few levels of your game free of cost, and the next ones could cost the user some money.

Premium Versions

If you don’t want to provide all your services for free, you can develop a premium version of your app. Many utility apps like VPNs or video editors have free access to certain features. But if you want more, you will have to pay. So, you can design a basic version through Android Studio and redirect people to the pro version within the app. As a result, you can get downloads on your basic and premium versions of the app.


Placing ads within your app might be the easiest way to generate revenue through an Android Studio app. Because when you place an ad through affiliate marketing, you can relax and let it do its job. Affiliate links from Google, Amazon or the AppStore can help you quickly grab some easy bucks. Every time someone clicks on the ad, your app will redirect them to a link. The more clicks you have, the more revenue you can generate. You can place four different types of ads within your Android studio app:

Banner Ads: displayed on the top and bottom of the screen  

Interstitial Ads: pop-up ads that take up the entire screen  

In-app Video Ads: videos in gaming apps that reward the user after they play them  

Native Ads: built-in ads that promote a product or service through affiliate marketing

Get a Sponsorship

When you’re developing your app through Android Studio, select a specific niche. Then, list companies that can sponsor your app within their niche. This might be one of the most uncommon ways of making money as it can take some research. But it could be totally worth it if you get a sponsor. So, focus on making an attractive app, and the right niche sponsor will probably show up for you.

Sell Merchandise

Many app developers incorporate e-commerce into their apps. It can be easy to sell merchandise once your app is up and running. Android Studio can make it easy for you to design an e-commerce app, and then you’re good to go. One of the biggest examples is Amazon and its “Merch by Amazon” campaign.
