There was a time when creating an Android app seemed impossible, but thanks to AppsGeyser you can now do it in a matter of minutes. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to build an Android app directly from your website. On Google Play, you may download trendblog.net’s Android app to see what your app might look like.
Why You Need a Mobile App
Developing a mobile app is a terrific method to increase the number of people visiting your website. Mobile apps downloaded from Google Play or Apple’s App Store are standard fare for smartphone users. When new customers search for relevant terms on the app stores, your app store website might generate even more traffic.
Things You Need
- A responsive website (duh!)
- A Google Play Developer account ($25.00 one time fee)
- Several screenshots, icons and logos (see list below)
An Android app based on your website is a relatively simple process. Either a URL, HTML code, or a YouTube channel/keywords can be used to generate an app for your device. An URL will be used in this tutorial.
All you have to do is fill in the blanks, upload your logo (a 72×72 pixel PNG file, no larger than 1 MB in size), and select an appropriate category. Include our suggestions for App Store Optimization in your work!
In just a few minutes, you’ll have a fully functional app that can be used on any device. Using the provided QR code or the AppsGeyser app store, you can now distribute your app on your website or in the AppsGeyser app shop. Take a peek at the “Edit” menu to learn about more advanced settings like app permissions and user agents.
As for your Android app, AppsGeyser provides a number of useful tools: usage statistics, distribution options and more. You can also send up to three messages every month to your customers for free.
Using in-app advertising from AdMob or Inner Active, you can begin monetizing your app as soon as you reach 100 downloads. AppsGeyser will receive half of the revenue generated by those advertising.
How to Distribute Your App on Google Play
After creating an Android app based on your responsive website in the first stage of this article, the next step is to publish this app so that it can generate additional visitors to your website. You can get your app into the hands of potential customers through the AppsGeyser website, but users will need to enable installation from unknown sources on their device before your app can be installed. Inconvenient and time-consuming, this may be too much for people. Fortunately, getting your Android app listed on Google Play is a simple process.
- Google Play Publisher account ($25.00 – sign up here)
- A working .APK file (download from AppsGeyser)
- At least two screenshots of your app
- High-res Icon (512 x 512 px – 32-bit PNG (alpha)
To achieve the greatest results, refer to our App Store Optimization Handbook. After filling out all the relevant information, you can decide whether or not to charge for your app.
Your app’s ratings, downloads, and usage are all tracked in the Google Play Developer Console. Your app’s performance and functionality should be monitored on a frequent basis.
