    Default Realistically, How much does app developers make?

    title, i saw somewhere that google charges 30% of total money, so if u put $1 rate on an app, 30% goes to Google, and 70% to me?

    so if i have 10k downloads, i will get 7k?

    or not?

    Yeah, that's correct AFAIK. There's also in-app billing (purchases made from within your app) which again, Google gets a 30% cut of:

    https://support.google.com/googlepla.../1153481?hl=en

    I am not 100% sure on how it works. I mean, Amazon/Kindle yanked in-app purchasing from iOS (Apple charges 30% as well), but Android's kindle app still has in-app purchases.

    So maybe I don't know what the heck I'm talking about.
