Defining the full scope of the project through Wireframing is essential to have the mutual understanding of what will require going into an application.

Why Android – Do you have the same question like all? The fact behind targeting android operating system is its user base. With more than 1.4 billion 30-day active users, people can target more audience by investing in developing an app for android rather than iOS and Windows.

      Hi Piyush,

      Excellent question and the answer is yes. Apps like mCent and ladoo earn revenue from the ads you click and apps you download. in fact, For every app their users download through mCent and Ladoo, they get commission out of it. And you just receive just a fraction of that money. Apart from this, they also earn from advertisement modules.
