Well, the real question should be “Why not?” Do you want your app to be available to millions of users worldwide? Do you want to publish apps as soon as you’re done writing and testing them? Do you like developing on open platforms? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I think you have your answer, but in case you’re still undecided, keep reading, and I’ll explain what I mean.
As a developer, you have an opportunity to develop apps for a fairly new market that is booming on a daily basis. Android is currently set to outpace many other carriers in market share in the industry in coming months. With so many users, it’s never been easier to write an application that can be downloaded and used by real people! The Android Market puts your app right into your users’ hands easily! Users don’t have to go searching the Internet to find an app to install. They just simply go to the Android Market that is pre-installed on their device, and they have access to all your apps. Because the Android Market comes pre-installed on most Android devices (I discuss a few exceptions later), users typically search the Android Market for all of their app needs. It’s not hard to see an app’s number of downloads soar in just a few days.
