Comparing the Google and HTC Builds for the Magic

Nick Gray of HTCSource put together two very thorugh looks at the new Android builds coming from Google and HTC.  He rooted his G1 some time ago and has been since playing around with various versions of Android.

htcsource1Gray notes some of the subtle differences between the two and points out things that might not be immediately noticed by casual glances.  There are some screen shots to look through for both, giving us glimpses as to what’s coming down the road in terms of widgets, aesthetics,  and overall user interface.

After a day of flashing by G1 between the two builds, I chose to stick with the Google build. Though it has fewer features, the Google build for the HTC Magic felt like it was closer to being a finished release. The HTC build as a bit slower and had a few more bugs.

Paid Apps that Pay Off: $150,000 in a Month

We all know the Android Market’s bad rap: developers make money on paid apps. Rovio said so. Larva Labs said so. Even Google said so recently, saying that the number of paid app purchases are not increasing as they should with the increases in use of Android in general. So it must be true, right? Developers trying to make a buck on Android should just monetize with ads?

Well, maybe not. Certainly, it’s worth pointing out that there are counter-examples to the conventional wisdom, examples of developers whose paid apps have generated a decent chunk of revenue. This series of posts will look at a few examples, including one developer who brought in more than $150,000 in revenue in less than a month from a single app.
