The guys behind the popular TV guide app i.TV have experienced much success on the iOS platform and hope to carry that over to Android (the “i” moniker certainly isn’t going to earn them any brownie points here).

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.
