I'm glad to join this forum and i hope it will grow more and more by time, i think we as developers need to be more opened about our ideas and the experience & knowledge we have, i think idea's are everywhere but the difference is HOW you do it in a way that adds new added value on the table even if you clone the same idea (take whatsapp & telegram for example) . the app market is huge it's like Pepsi and Cocacola both sells water and sugar and both still eat the cake. plz correct me if my example is wrong.
I understand why many dev's prefer to stay silent, it's like we found ourselves in the middle of a gold mine and when someone finds a piece of gold or a diamond we prefer to put it in our pocket ASAP and keep mining in the same area while looking left and right to make sure no one sees what you hide there LOL
I think we need to find a new way of communication between developers in a way that is useful for all. Think about it: Google, Admob & others ad companies... they dont pay you 1$ unless they make at least 100x out of it! They are all united as a team but WE are divided like small enemies in a deathmatch map lol, that's why we are weak and sometimes pathetic!
* what if we make a worldwide developer's Strike against Google?
i just wanted to say what is inside my head (sorry about my poor English). that we might make more money if we are more open to each other about app ideas.
On the other side, i have some general questions and i would like to find correct answers. (i think many developer have the same questions too)
1. is it normal to have multiple google play accounts with many apps (in a good standing) that all are connected to one Admob account?
2. is it a violation if i send a push notification to my user's, when pressed it opens a screen inside my app with one of the following:
A. a YouTube link when pressed plays youtube video or open it in youtube app?
B. a message with a short URL that asks user's to download my own apps on Google play or other app stores?
C. a message that asks user's to support my app by rating 5 stars?
