Buyers or advertisers?I have 3 sources of revenue: advertising (just a few procent), users buying an app (about 40%) , and associations buying a license for their members (around 55%). For all 3 sources the split between iOS and Android is similar. Associations that pay me directly for their members will only increase. It avoids the 30% Apple or Google tax.That is B.S. My business would not be profitable if I would concentrate on just one platform (either iOs or Android). It is much more difficult to find and develop a new profitable idea than to port an existing profitable idea to the another platform .
