Free Mode VS Charging Mode, Which Is More Profitable?

With the rise of the mobile internet, more and more developers are turning their attention to apple or google's app store. But for these app developers, one of the questions they have to consider is how to make their own apps to make money, whether to take a free strategy and then make money through other channels or directly charge, this is the decision that developers need to make. Usually, when we ask this question, many developers will put the profit strategy to the end or directly respond to the current failure to consider the profit model.

Who pays more: users or advertisers

when it comes to users, whether it's taking the app itself, subscription fees, or in-app billing mode, most android and ios users are resisting charges. So many developers of smartphone and tablet apps prefer to use the ad model to make money. On the other hand, advertisers are more willing to pay developers, not users. Just like developers, advertisers also need to bring their products to market quickly.

The best solution: adopt multiple profit strategies

often, when we come across a vast majority of users who are price-sensitive, tend to be free, and hardly buy, there are still a small number of users who choose a payment model for their favorite apps to avoid advertising harassment.

So during the development process, developers can choose to develop different versions of the app for different types of users: free and paid. This model is very popular in the publishing industry, like the british guardian has released an advertising free version of android and a non-advertising iphone paid version for different users. Similarly, echofon has launched free and paid versions on all platforms.

In short, when you build a new app, you should investigate some of the ad-based models. There are already a lot of ad models available, so you can compare them to see if they offer cpm or cpc and how much work to do when integrating them into your app.

UK's Johnson asks for Brexit delay, but argues against it

Oct 23, 2019

LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson grudgingly asked the European Union late Saturday to delay Brexit after the British Parliament postponed a decision on whether to back his divorce deal. But the defiant Johnson also made clear that he personally opposed delaying the U.K.'s exit, scheduled for Oct. 31. A law passed by Parliament last month set a late-night deadline for the government to send a letter asking the EU for a three-month postponement if lawmakers had not approved an agreement with the bloc by Saturday. An hour before the deadline, European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "The extension request has...

The Latest: UK to get 2nd chance to explain its proposals

Oct 23, 2019

LONDON — The Latest on Brexit (all times local): 7:05 p.m. The European Union says British Brexit negotiators will get a second chance next week to explain Boris Johnson's proposals in more detail after the EU side was left with many questions following Friday's session. EU Brexit negotiators met for technical talks at EU headquarters and afterward an EU statement said that not all questions could be answered. "We will meet again on Monday to give the UK another opportunity to present its proposals in detail," the statement said. The statement reinforced the dim view EU officials have taken of...

The Latest: Irish minister: No proposal from the UK yet

Oct 23, 2019

LONDON — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 2:05 p.m. Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney says EU negotiators "simply haven't seen yet" a British proposal that could form the basis for negotiations to break the deadlock in the stalled Brexit process. Conveney said after meeting with EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier that "the two sides are quite a long way apart," while the clock is ticking inexorably toward the planned Oct. 31 departure date. There is already talk of granting the U.K. yet another extension to its departure date, but Coveney first wants...

Top UK court: Johnson's suspension of Parliament was illegal

Oct 23, 2019

LONDON — In a decision that badly undermines Boris Johnson's authority, Britain's highest court ruled unanimously Tuesday that the prime minister broke the law by suspending Parliament in a way that squelched legitimate scrutiny of his Brexit plan. The historic move by the U.K. Supreme Court offered a ringing endorsement of Parliament's sovereignty and slapped down what justices viewed as the legislature's silencing by the executive. The ruling upended the prime minister's plan to keep lawmakers away until two weeks before Britain is due to leave the European Union. The Supreme Court said Johnson's suspension was "void" and never legally...

Effort to bring home stranded Thomas Cook travelers underway

Oct 23, 2019

LONDON — The British government has flown home the first 14,500 people stranded by the collapse of tour operator Thomas Cook, and is expected to ramp up the repatriation effort to get all the 150,000 U.K.-based customers home in two weeks. The Civil Aviation Authority said Tuesday the first batch of people were flown back after Thomas Cook ceased all operations Monday, leaving hundreds of thousands stranded around the world. It was still unclear how many of the 600,000 total that were traveling with the company as of Sunday would remain stranded. German authorities were still mulling a request for...
