With such striking counter-examples around, we’ve always been suspicious of the conventional wisdom that developers can’t make money with Android apps. Now we have more anecdotal evidence that it’s very possible to bring in serious money as an Android developer, in the form of an article from Ben Sillis of U.K. site Electricpig.

Sillis profiles eight developer success stories, some of whom have pulled in more than a million dollars in revenue from paid apps. Others have struck it rich with ads or in-app purchases. And while the obvious suspects like Rovio are in there, so are several less well-known developers. If you are toiling away to bring better apps to Android users, head on over to read the whole post. It’s not only inspirational but also provides some great examples of strategies that work.
