    Hi @boofaa79,

    Others can correct me if I'm wrong, these Apps are not like ordinary Apps. You can list them on Google Play and introduce a price if you like. However, they are designed to present and promote a businesses. The functionality of our Apps are limited to a generic framework so there is simplicity of use and ease of duplication through word-of-mouth, Social Media, can be achieved for all uses.

    The Apps offered for 99cents are normally based on gimmicks and are more tailored to do a specific thing, like a game or hand x-ray, or compass etc and normally cost thousands of dollars for programmers to create and be tested before being released to the public.

    You can make more money helping small business with App.Cat Apps than you ever will hoping your 99cent apps take off and make you money. The percentage of 99cent apps that succeed are very small and worth researching so you can make the right decision going forward.

    Hope this makes sense.

    All the best with whatever you decide. I'm sure smarter people than I will contribute more to your question soon.

    Cheers, Eric

    Hi @boofa79. I agree with @EricEdge: App.Cat apps are fantastic for brands, labels, and businesses as a tool of promotion and providing means of brand loyalty.
    If you want to make a game, a quiz, etc. you should learn to code but PLEASE don't expect to make money on it because that train has left the station.
    If you feel like you want to help brands make their own apps (like Eric suggested) we'll be right here for you and help you along.

    I make a nice flyer for my customers with QR code on it.
    I tell them how to promote thier app.
    They can take QR code and have a rubber stamp made! They can stamp QR code on evrything
    they can.
    You can make video to put on Vimeo for them at a cost!
    We app makers have to keep the excitment going for our customers!

    How to sell the appcat app on play store through my iphone ??

    @Mihir43. I am afraid you just made no sense at all. Slow down. Write full sentences and ask proper questions because we can't read minds...

    Why would you want to make a business-oriented app and then SELL it in Google Play?
    If I met you at a bar, and then asked for your business card; would you charge me before you gave it to me?
    Makes absolutely no sense.
    These apps are like business cards, designed to promote an individual, a business, an event... You do not charge for that.
    You make the app FOR someone and then charge them for the service.
    And besides, how is ANYBODY going to find your app in the App Store or Google Play?
    They won't waste the time looking!
    If you own this product, then you need to start making apps to promote those around you... and charge THEM!

    That is so right @MichelleCraig, why try selling your business card? No one would want it and you'll never get any business. That's why we built App.Cat the way we did - for instant sharing across ALL platforms ... iOS, Android, Mac, Windows. Heck, even for those poor sods still using Blackberry!

    I'm glad you recognise the value that App.Cat brings and I thank you for your insightful post!

    "Will this work on my Blackberry?"
